Lorelei and the Laser Eyes – PC Review

Simogo have held a special place in my heart since December 2020. A friend introduced me to Sayonara Wild Hearts around that time. It quickly became one of my favourite games of all time and I have listened to the soundtrack obsessively ever since. When Lorelei and the Laser Eyes was revealed, I was very cautiously interested. The vibrant colours and upbeat music that drew me to their previous title was replaced by an monochromatic aesthetic and a very eerie, mysterious vibe. However, there was never any doubt that I was going to pick this up day one and see what they'd cooked up. See It All Through Laser Eyes Before we get into the review, I want to preface it with this. If you're at all interested in playing this game with as little up-front knowledge as possible, grab a notepad and...
