If there’s one highlight for me for this first half of 2019, it’s definitely playing through A Plague Tale: Innocence.

And by the looks of it, I’m not alone in this sentiment. Focus Home Interactive, the publisher for A Plague Tale: Innocence, released its Accolades trailer, which showcases some of the highest praise the game received from various media outlets. Check it out below.

One of the standouts is from Jim Sterling, who named it “the best game” he’s played this year. I can agree with him, and it’s not hard to see why (check out my review of the game here). Looking back at the releases since January, there hasn’t been much that tackled a topic the way A Plague Tale: Innocence did. It boasted an incredible tale bolstered by intuitive game mechanics, each element complementing the former in a masterful example of what makes video games great.

A Plague Tale: Innocence’s critical acclaim proves that you can have both a good story and compelling gameplay at the same time. The game was a technical marvel, and it managed to create an impact within its mechanics that many have lauded: the vast number of rats on the screen at any given time. Seriously, the fact that Asobo Studios, the developer behind A Plague Tale: Innocence, managed to do something on this scale speaks volumes to both their technical and writing department. I can only hope that in the future, they find further success, so that they can bring more story-driven and technically-sound titles like A Plague Tale: Innocence to players who can and will appreciate them.

One of the points I tend to agree with as well was its amazing music, which was composed by Oliver Deriviere. His work on A Plague Tale: Innocence is seriously underrated, and I’m of the belief that it’s one of the things that hold the title together really well. I’m playing through Vampyr mostly because of his work on the game.

With the success of A Plague Tale: Innocence, it’s hard not to see Asobo become a huge name in the years to come. If rumors are to be believed, however, it would seem that they’re already there.
