DIGAGAMI ALPHA – Remnant: From The Ashes (2020)

Welcome back to another Digagami Alpha review! We got Remnant: From The Ashes on today’s menu, with a side of spoilers and soft memes!

Everyone should know the drill by now. If you would rather hear my angelic voice and see great content, here is the video for you:

For those of you who want to read, I got you covered. There isn’t too much to talk about when it comes to Remnant though, so this is going to be brief.

Gameplay

This souls-like game follows suit in terms of Health, Stamina, and Dodging. What separates Remnant from other Souls-like games is the shooting aspect. There is a very satisfying feeling you get after firing and watching your opponent stumble!

As for the melee, that part is okay-ish. I wouldn’t expect a player to logon for melee gameplay though. Most of the time, it leaves you vulnerable to attacks. Especially bad when multiple ranged enemies are nearby.

The Dodging aspect works similar to Dark Souls, but sometimes you still get hit in your Dodging Frame. The health aspect is also as lethal as Dark Souls as well. One hit and you could lose half your health if you aren’t careful.

Map Design

The map design in Remnant: From The Ashes is excellent, sticking to the theme while also including puzzles and hidden treasures along the way. Maybe Valorant can take some tips from them.

As for the enemies, they don’t stretch too far in terms of uniqueness. You may encounter 7-10 of the same enemy before they toss an elite enemy at you. It doesn’t bother most though, because it’s fun to shoot in this game!

Storyline (SPOILERS)

Alright, if you didn’t read the spoiler tag at the beginning, not my fault. Anyway, this story seems simple, but maybe there is a whole lore behind it.

There are these living tree creatures called “Root” and they are taking over the world. The Main Character has been searching for ways to destroy the Root.

The Main Character meets many survivors and is eventually led to finding a man named “Ford”. Ford was also like the main character, but he got discouraged and gave up. Ford tells the main character where to find the Dreamer (Final Boss), who is essentially spawning the Root.

The Dreamer isn’t some big nasty Omni-powered creature. He’s just a possessed body in what seems to be a coma state. The fight begins with the Final Boss after you get too close and he touches you which teleports you into his mind.

In other words, they went with the weirdest and most boring option to end the game off with. As you can guess, that was pretty anti-climatic compared to what I was thinking.

The Final Rating

Besides the story, the game was still fun to play and the guns were amazing to use! I also did like the mod that you got to use as well, especially the skull pet one.

Final Rating: 7.5 / 10
