When Olija came across my desk, I honestly didn’t know what I was in for. Judging from the trailers I was expecting yet another typical pixel art Metroidvaniah. However the involvement of Devovler Digital had me wondering what the hook was. Turns out, that hook was a mysteriously dark atmosphere that permeates every facet of its short, but memorable runtime.
Olija is available on PC, Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation. You can learn more from the official website. My written review will be appearing on Impulse Gamer, hence why this post is just the video review.
