"Children are fascinated by real objects," Andrew Davenport, the creator of Teletubbies and countless other kids' shows, told the Guardian recently. "They will be able to see the weave of the fabric, the joins in the wallpaper, the printing on the wallpaper." Davenport was talking about his new series, Moon and Me, but he may as well have been extolling the virtues of Nintendo's upcoming
Switch platformer, Yoshi's Crafted World , whose environment is made entirely out of real, recognizable materials. Yoshi himself appears to be made out of wool, as he was in Yoshi's Woolly World , while the environment around him is constructed out of paper and cardboard.
As with similar games such as Super Paper Mario or Tearaway, this stylistic choice not only looks great, but also helps the game feel real. In a strange way, you can imagine yourself in there with Yoshi, and it's therefore hard not to smile when he sticks his tongue out and makes that silly little "BLANG" noise.
Crafted World attempts to go one further on this by letting you see the stitching in the facade presented to you: nearly every world is playable in reverse in what are dubbed Flipside levels. Here, you hop, skip, and flutter jump through the same level you just made your way through once again, except on the opposite side of the 2D plane. You're brought behind the seams and underneath the paintwork of the crafted world you just beat.
Everything feels cohesive, and it's easy to marvel at everyday objects as you amble past. A train made out of a Coke can, for example, or a house made out of old cereal boxes. For adults, it takes you back to childhood arts and craft classes; for children, it might reinforce the notion that creating anything is possible with enough hard work and a glue stick. ⬇️See comment for the whole news ⬇️ #nintendo #nintendoswitch #switch #nx #supermario #supermariobros #mario #mariobros #yoshi #videogames #gamer #gamerindonesia #news #gaming #japan #japanese
