Welcome to another episode of Ori and The Blind Forest. We have arrived in the hot fiery ruins. As always you can watch this playthrough at the bottom of this post.

1 2 3

This is probably the hardest part of the game. We have to use all of the skills we have gained. The goal is to reduce all the magma at the bottom of the volcano, so that we can access the lower levels. There are different sections to free, all with their own challenges.  Naru also seems to be searching for us. She is so determined that she is risking the life that she just got back.

Follow The Wind | Ori and The Blind Forest : Part 14

Welcome to another episode of Ori and The Blind Forest. In the last episode we had arrived at Kuro’s nest. As always you can watch this episode at the bottom of this post.

kuro children

We travel further into the nest and find an egg. A cutscene starts to play. We see Kuro with her children. This seems to be a flash back. Kuro leaves the nest to go find some more food leaving the children alone. The big tree seems to start spewing out light energy. The light spreads throughout the forest, reaching Kuro’s nest. Kuro’s children start to be engulfed by the light. Kuro hears the cries of her children and hurries back. Unfortunately she is too late and they have died. This is why Kuro hates Ori’s light.

flee kuro

Back to the game now and Kuro immediately appears where we are. She is obviously not happy with our presence so Ori jumps off the cliff down to the ground. We are back now near the outside of the ruins. The gameplay makes a drastic change. We must now escape this area while hiding from Kuro’s gaze. If we stay in her line of sight too long that will be the end of us.

going up

We barely escape from Kuro. Now the whole map is filled with wind. We must now travel to Sorrow Pass. We take Ori back to where the raging river is. This place now has an air stream. This allows us to travel up to Sorrow Pass.

sorrow pass

The place is pretty much a minefield of spiky walls, stray projectiles and crazy winds. There are shards located around. We have to collect them for a door we have yet to see. We unlock more areas which in turn tell us more about the state of the world around us.

large rock

We collect enough shards and unlock a door to the next area. There are some large rocks that we have to use to block some of the energy beams that are closing our way. We get ourselves a bolder and this is where we end this episode.

Are We Killers?| Ori and The Blind Forest : Part 13

Welcome to another episode of Ori and The Blind Forest. In the last episode we found our way into the ruins. So this episode we explore and find out what we are here for. As always the video is at the bottom of the playthrough.

orb bounce

The ruins might look beautiful but they are also dangerous. The platforms are heated and we cannot walk or touch them. We bump into a red orb which was used by the Gumon. This orb allows us to walk on those surfaces we could not but, we have to be holding the orb.

orb placement

It also locks Ori to the ground. What might seem like upside down to the player is actually normal using this orb. After dodging some death rays we finally make it to where we are to place the orb.

Gumo

This whole time our friend Gumo had been following us and is now inside the ruins with us. Sein wonders if Gumo would forgive us if he know that we caused for his species to die off. This is where the story is starting to not seem so straight forward.

Gumo Steal

We keep going and we find where we need to activate the element of the winds. As we activated them, Gumo  took the orb we had placed earlier. We aren’t too sure why at this point. We must now escape the ruins.

seal

Just like the Ginso tree we have to escape this place in one go.The whole place is coming down and quite frankly it looks astounding. Environmental hazards are the main killer here. After sometime we manage to escape but…..

kuro nest

We find ourselves at Kuro’s nest. What awaits our young savior. You will have to wait till next time as this is where the episode ends.

Mushroom Kingdom | Ori and The Blind Forest 12

Welcome to another episode of Ori and The Blind Forest. As always you can watch this episode at the bottom of this post.

mushroom

Last episode we got ourselves a new grabbing power which now lets us grab on to walls. We use this power to grab onto some of the organic looking platforms making our way to the lantern.

changing forest

The current area is all about timing the jumps correctly. Every time you jump the platforms either disappear or appear. We are collecting shards that we can use later on. The forest keeps changing to give us a new path.

jumping things

After fighting off some jumpy worms we manage to get a door open to where the lantern is. Luckily the game helped us get close to where we have to place the lantern.

flame

We place the lantern and the mist that was in the forest cleared. We also received the Seal to the ruins. We leave the forest and head south to colder weather.

ruins

We arrive at the Forlon ruins which are now the resting place of the Gumo. It is a sad site to behold and the game does so well at setting the somber mood. This is where the episode ends.

Ori and The Spooky Forest : Part 11

Welcome everything to another playthrough of Ori and the blind forest. In this episode we make our way through the creepiest forest you have ever seen. It’s a short one. As always you can watch this episode at the bottom of the post. Enjoy

lantern

Last time we entered this crazy forest that seems to be alive and moving. We find a shrouded lantern which we need to bring the light to. This will clear this fog from the forest. The woods certainly has many ways to kill Ori.

changing forest

The use of our skills is getting more and more complicated. The game demands more precision. Luckily the game has one of the tightest controls in a game we have ever played. After going through a fun projectile section The forest ends up forcibly changing itself. All of the environments change and new pathways prop up.

ability

We set our eyes on a torch which we need to carry to the shrouded lantern. We have to make our way to it but first we get a new wall climb ability. This is where this episode ends.

We Aren’t Afraid Of You Kuro | Ori and The Blind Forest : Part 10

Welcome everyone to our next episode of the Ori and The Blind Forest playthrough. As always you can watch this episode here.

tree

As we run through the beautiful environments that we first saw at the beginning of the game. Instead of feeling frustration for backtracking it is actually nice to see these environments again. A lot of the enemies that we faced before are now considerably weaker than before. This just helps to show the character progression. We also drop by to say hello to the great tree.

bird

We travel west this time to the door we couldn’t open the last time. We are immediately faced with a new enemy. The new enemy seems like a smaller version of the great owl Kuro. Their sweeping attacks are quite difficult to deal with. There are many little areas you can explore to get extra life for example.

kuro

Surfing the air is still as awesome as we thought it would be. We are slowly heading towards the Misty Woods. Unfortunately for us we have a great obstacle in our way. Ignoring the warning we are given by our little spirit partner quickly results in our death. Kuro won’t let take a single step towards the Misty Woods. We turn back to find another way to get to the Misty Woods.

bird damage

We eventually find another path to the Misty Woods which would hopefully get past Kuro. We have to drop some large boulders on her head in an attempt to get her to leave. It felt great watching Kuro flee after we unleashed the boulders on her.

glide

This opened up the path ahead for us. We get a feather that fell from the beast and now we can glide through the air like a boss. This is where this episode of Ori and The Blind Forest ends.
