Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is the fourth in a series of Metroidvania games by Bombservice. I haven’t played the first three, but I don’t think it’s necessary to do so in order to understand this one. Maybe playing the earlier ones would explain some of the story holes.

Over the deer and through the deer to grandmother’s house we go. That’s how I remember the old song and Necrosoft Games have brought that song to life in Oh, Deer!*. I grew up in the American Midwest so I can attest to the accuracy of this game. Once you left the safety of the […]
