Dord is Doughy and Delightful

There was no way to resist the puffy protagonist of NarwhalNut’s Dord when I saw him over at Game Jolt. It’s the bow tie. I’m a sucker for bow ties. This 2D puzzler certainly delivers the cute as you navigate the colorful world with Midy, the little ghost that wants to become a real knight.

That berry girl is totally stanning Midy.

I’m still playing the game and while the objectives are clear, some of the puzzles are surprisingly challenging. Yet the music and visuals of Dord make the game nearly impossible to put down. Do you get the sense that I like this game?

What do you mean I gotta defeat this bunny? Woook a his big ole eyes!

Dord reminds me of the pixely detailed worlds of early NES games and PC point-and-click adventures, and as those were my gateways games years ago, the aesthetic works on my nostalgia glands. Thankfully Dord offers a story line and game play that does not disappoint. Get your puffy little hands on it today.

The wandering post-person, who reminds me of a kodama, allows you to save your progress. He is a little suspicious, though.
