The Bard’s Tale. For realsies.

Stanza Review

I’ll tell you a tale of a hero bold,
  Whack fol the diddle hey, dee die doh dae
A bard that traveled around the wold.
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
He sang his song t'folks tall and small
To music’ly unite the hearts of all
And save the world from it’s coming fall.
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
So I say
Hip Hooray!
Go buy Wandersong, and play!
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

With controller in hand, and love in heart,
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
I marveled at the simple art:
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
Colorful characters, cute and fair,
Moving with a joyous flair.
T’was all I could but sit and stare
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
So I say
Hip Hooray!
Go buy Wandersong, and play!
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

Choose your notes from a colored ring
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
To build your freeform songs to sing.
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
Traverse the world with colored notes
Or sing a song to bust some ghosts.
All problems doth a song revoke!
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
So I say
Hip Hooray!
Go buy Wandersong, and play!
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

With mechanics fun, and artwork cute,
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
The writing’s strong, and deft to boot,
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
With story beats and jokes galore
And a touching story at its core,
It leaves me naught but wanting more!
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae
So I say
Hip Hooray!
Go buy Wandersong, and play!
  Whack fol the diddle hey dee die doh dae

Encore?

I hope you didn’t find it terse
That I wrote this whole darn thing in verse
But I leave you now, because I will
Keep playing till I’ve had my fill.
To see all in-game things to do,
And IMHO you all should too!

Is it the Dark Song

No death I’ve found in this world of song,
No penalties for playing wrong.
‘Tis the least Souls-like game I’ve ever played,
And I am so glad that it got made!

Not to worry. There was no stick and bucket dance. We don’t even talk about the stick and bucket dance.

I opened my Steam client to wishlist this game, and I also scrolled down to the system requirements to see if I could recommend it to friends with older machines. This is what I found:

MINIMUM:
OS: 7+
Processor: Not that intense
Memory: 512 MB RAM
Graphics: Not that good
DirectX: Version 9.0
Storage: 2 GB available space
Additional Notes: This game is very good

...I will be buying this game very soon. (:
