In Alone in the Ancient City, designer Takuma Okada translates the melancholy, No Man’s Sky-esque galaxy-wide wandering of Alone Among the Stars into a more humble joy, one of discovering a city on your own. Ancient City captures the feeling of traveling through a place with a history and weight belonging to others, but wholly unfamiliar to you. Okada eschews the oft-trod territory of metropolitan tourism and spectacle in the pursuit of a more intimate exploration. This game is Urban Pastel at its finest.

I had my first opportunity to play this today - what a beautiful little game!

I found that it gave me just enough direction to uncap my creative flow, and I filled several journal pages over the course of an hour of play.

Thoroughly recommended.
