Never judge a game by its visuals. And if you do, make sure that game isn’t A Day Without Me.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, A Day Without Me from the ChiliDog Interactive team looks all lovely and cute. The delicate use of colour, the child-like drawings, the semi open-world and the opportunity to be a teenager, doing teenage things, points to that.
But like we say, you should never judge a game on that alone, because frankly, A Day Without Me is going to scare you silly. At times. When you least expect it.
Priced at £4.19, taking a little cheeky punt on A Day Without Me is perfectly doable and if you’re after a decent premise, its going to do the job there too. You see, this will have you following the main character, a young child, as they wander the world around them, taking in what can only be described ass a disturbing, surrealist caper through suburbia.
And it’s a bit of luck that’s the best way of describing the action too, as it is those exact words which we’ve ripped straight from our full review of A Day Without Me on Xbox. We urge you to give it a read for the full details.
If you do decide to jump in, expect a simple control scheme that is only really broken up by some choppy level design. A Day Without Me also struggles to bring about any real focus too, but if you’re in the market for a cheap little playthrough, and are ready to be scared silly, fill your boots.
You’ll find the game kicking around on the Xbox Store right about now. Pay it a visit – if you dare.
