Before we started recording this episode, neither Leo or I had heard of Paper Cult’s new game, Bloodroots. Reiner’s pitch sounded interesting, though. He said it had the combo-focused structure of a Tony Hawk game, but with swords and barrels and fish instead of skateboards. Sold! Leo took the sticks, and was immediately won over. Check it out!
Bloodroots’ Mr. Wolf is an efficient killing machine, but he’s far from unstoppable. One hit will send him back to his maker. Thankfully, thanks to a quick restarting mechanic and solid controls, Leo managed to rise to the challenge. At least, until we had to kick him off. Seriously, he probably would have kept playing for the rest of the day.
Bloodroots is out February 28 on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.
