There’s something instantly appealing about a little kid taking care of a giant rock monster. Probably just because I instantly think of them walking away into the sunset holding hands. Adorable! Honestly though, the more I see of Game Republic’s upcoming adventure title Majin and the Forsaken, the more compelled I am by it. And judging by Jem Alexander’s Gamescom preview of the game, I’m not the only one:
“The most striking thing on the screen is easily the Majin itself, and that's not just because it takes up a large portion of screen space. The beast's design makes it seem sort of cute, with its dopey face, but also powerful. That coupled with its rudimentary speech ("I try hard!") should help to create an emotional connection between the player and the Majin. Something the developers consider vitally important for the title.”
