It doesn’t happen very often that a game hasn’t much info to go on with when preparing an article, but in the case of Everhood, it’s quite fitting. The premise is already strange: One plays a wooden doll whose arm has been taken away by a blue gnome.
If this wasn’t strange enough, then the gameplay and humorous pixel art presentation add to confusion. Battles are played like rhythm-action titles, only with a mix of bullet hell shooting and other arcade references thrown in, while there’s even more unexpected fun found in the fantasy realm of Everhood, making it all the more interesting to check out.
Everhood was originally released in March 2021 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 20% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, April 16, 2021, at 2 PM UTC. The digital soundtrack can also be bought separately, although it’s much cheaper when buying it in a bundle with the game that is 20% off its original price.
