How is the save system different? 

Instead of expending energy to manually save, the sequel just has a good old fashioned autosave system that's so much less stressful and more convenient.

How often is it? Did you ever find yourself getting screwed over because the game wasn't saving often enough?

No, the autosave was quite generous and never robbed me of a good chunk of progress, so I never had to worry about it. Big improvement over the first game where it was easy to forget to manually save and the energy cost limited how often you could.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Thanks. I bought and beat the first game, so I was curious. I honestly had forgotten about the sequel until I saw your thread but now I think I'm going to give it a spin.

If you enjoyed the first game at all I highly recommend Will of the Wisps, it's better it basically every way.

I loved the first game. Everything about it, really. So if this better than that, I'm in for a treat. I'll give you my impressions after digging into it four a few hours.

Awesome, hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)

I was hesitant myself about getting the Ori games as I typically don't do well with difficult games, but I'm really glad I decided to take a chance on them. (Mzuzek also gave me a bit of a push haha)

There are some people who don't like it as much as the first one but I'm with Curl in that I find it better in every way and I think most people feel that way too. And yeah Blind Forest was great already, Will of the Wisps is just amazing.

And yeah the autosave system is very lenient. It works on a checkpoint basis, actually it kinda works exactly like the saves in the first game, but instead of you having to manually make the saves, they're just invisible checkpoints littered everywhere. Obviously you still only get saves in stable ground, so water levels and certain platforming sections will require a bit more patience. And of course you still don't get autosaves in the escape sequences.

I give it a 9/10, because it's a great game, but besides slightly better designed maps I don't really get why people think it's such a step over the debut game 

Well, for me personally the main things that made it better than Blind Forest were the improved combat, pacing, world-building, variety, visuals, and save system.

I liked the save system in the first game way more.

Apart from that I agree that Will of the Wisps is an improvement over it's predecessor.

It's a great game, but think I prefer the original one more. It's obvious the developers have been playing Hollow Knight and the heavy borrowing gets a bit jarring at some points.



 

 

 

 

 

Blind Forest was already good, but the change in combat alone made Will of the Wisps better for me. Im glad you enjoyed it, Its a must-play in my book.
