PC Invasion journeyed into the world of TASOMACHI: Behind The Twilight, the gorgeous 3D exploration platformer set in a mysterious Far-Eastern fantasy world from developer and triple-A Japanese game industry veteran Nocras and publisher PLAYISM, awarding the game an 8/10.
Andrew Farrell takes us through TASOMACHI’s peaceful setting and relaxing gameplay.
Tasomachi‘s main focus is on relaxation and careful exploration. The game’s visuals are fairly basic, but lovely, as it makes great use of color and some of the vistas look great, especially once you’ve eliminated the fog. The game is at its best when you’re just looking around for more trinkets to find while enjoying the ambiance. It’s a peaceful, fun game that doesn’t have much tedium or any unnecessary inclusions, which I appreciated.
While you can certainly beat Tasomachi in four to five hours, this isn’t a game most will simply play to beat. There are no stakes and there’s barely a plot. It’s really for anyone who just wants to have a pleasant time while exploring a lovely, quiet place. Collecting all of the trinkets will probably take at least eight hours. There’s enough to do here to make this recommendable whether you want something quick or something that’ll take a bit more to 100%.
