ULTRAWORLD Review: An Artist’s World

uw7ULTRAWORLD is a first person exploration game where you will rest and relax, but also help a game character and it’s troubles, asking you curious questions that it cannot answer.

You will not jump, shoot, craft, survive, kill Nazis or zombies, being a marine, fetching quests, getting a high score, co-op, multiplayer, microtransactions, DLC.. you get the idea, just relax and enjoy the world of ULTRAWORLD created by James Beech

The Good

Beautiful art style that’s full of color and amazing shadow/shading placements, combined with a great and unique soundtrack, in a world that invokes exploration. Nice little functions that you get throughout the game to play around with during and after you finish it. Decent story that’s somewhat fourth wall breaking.

The Bad

The game’s objectives and goals are barely strong enough to keep you playing the game.

The Money

Priced at 15$ on their website (and soon Steam), and if you like to walk around look at really beautiful 3D world, nice music, and a checking out the short story it has, then this is the game for you, if not then it’s not. Although i think it should be a little bit lower in price for what it is.

Final Thoughts

It’s great to see the world and the artistic vision of an artist being represented in a game with most of the game’s focus on the vision/art, but it’s a problem if you can have a strong objective, or something to push and lead you through the world while keeping you interested, and while the game does have a simple, nice story to do that, it was just not strong enough.
