Imaginative dark fantasy adventure, plus a little jank, May 10, 2023

Baluthar is a dark fantasy adventure about a father searching for his son, who has gone missing down a nearby well that is said to be cursed. The world-building is strong, suggesting a much broader setting than the player will ever encounter directly. The ideas at play are very creative, though the writing itself is merely serviceable (and, at times, a bit clunky). The puzzles are mostly acceptable, though at least one near the end is incredibly unintuitive. This is also the sort of game where you'll need to examine everything in sight to pick up on important details. Baluthar is by no means an essential game, but fans of gloomy fantasy will find something to enjoy in the imaginatively creepy setting.
