THE BE­GIN­NER’S GUIDE

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

The Be­gin­ner’s Guide is de­signer Davey Wre­den’s fol­low-up to his crit­i­cally ac­claimed in­die hit The Stan­ley Para­ble. In it, he takes the player on a tour of the port­fo­lio of un­known game maker Coda, ar­gu­ing that through his work we can learn about him as a per­son. One game sees the player on a stage, botch­ing their lines be­fore re­treat­ing be­hind a se­ries of heavy gates. It’s a fas­ci­nat­ing way to present what is es­sen­tially an in­tensely per­sonal in­sight into Wre­den him­self, and while guided, it’s very much open to in­ter­pre­ta­tion.
