I can’t think of a better way to start the Chinese New Year than with an excellent Chinese game. ICEY is what happens when you mix The Stanley Parable with a 2D version of Bayonetta (or Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance). The game features extraordinarily flashy and fluid combat that rewards quick reflexes and efficient combos, but the meat of the experience lies in the narrative. ICEY encourages players to stick to a set path and explore every nook and cranny, and the narrator reacts accordingly, usually in hilarious and trollish ways. Gamers are dared to break the rules of the game, yet they are ultimately limited by the game code that dictates those rules.
ICEY is currently 30% off, which isn’t too big a discount. However, the game is normally $10, which means you only have to pay $7.69 during the Lunar Sale. You can’t go wrong with a game for less than $10, especially one as philosophical as ICEY.
