Every year, AAA video game titles reign supreme in holiday sales—but every so often, an independent game shows that it can push the envelope. Enter Arise: A Simple Story, the tale of an old man who passes away but immediately wakes up in limbo. Players control this sole character (or can play with one friend) and manipulate time while gazing in awe at the simple but beautiful world. The music in this game taps into the emotions of the man’s life and journey, all while exploring an uncomplicated and surreal art style through snow-covered forests and vibrant springtime flowerbeds.
