Review: V Rising

Estimated read time 1 min read

Whatever genre of game it may be — survival, RPG, even roguelikes can fall into this category — there’s a key difference between having your players go from under-powered to aptly-equipped and aptly-equipped to someone who can finally start enjoying the game they’ve already invested sizable lengths of time in. Call it a question of taste and personal preference as to how weak or vulnerable one is willing to feel, but part of the reason why many survival games (least from a personal standpoint) feel both off-putting and antagonistically-designed is their misunderstanding on how powerless a player should feel. More importantly, how vital it is to keep tabs on those very metrics for survival. Beyond just a numeric value or percentage constantly ticking down at the corner of one’s screen.
