The Last Tinker: City of Colors Official Trailer
If you’re hankering for an adventure that harkens back to the heydey of 3D platforming, you won’t have to wait much longer to scratch that itch. This summer, The Last Tinker: City of Colors will release on PlayStation 4. Find the official trailer above!
I actually started a new save file in Super Mario 64 two days ago, and I can say with certainty that our current generation is in dire need of a whimsical platforming adventure. Contrast is decent, and Knack is playable, I suppose, but both games offer little environmental exploration. We need a game of this genre that encourages, not inhibits, exploration. The inclusion of meaning – i.e. tackling racism in the game – is an added bonus. Perhaps The Last Tinker will fit the bill and finally rip me from my N64. I think Alice: Madness Returns is the most recent 3D platformer that I found exciting/interesting/well-designed. Thoughts?
