REVIEW: Indika (2024 Video Game) for Xbox

Indika," a 2024 third-person, story-driven adventure game by Odd Meter, immerses players in a surreal and darkly humorous world. The story follows a young nun, Indika, who embarks on a journey with the devil himself, leading her beyond her monastery's walls into a series of events reminiscent of Dostoyevski and Bulhakov's novels. The game's narrative is its strongest asset, exploring profound themes of religion and authority with striking imagery and a peculiar sense of wit. While the linear gameplay may limit exploration, the mix of 3D environments and 2D pixel art mini-games provides visual variety and depth to the storytelling.

Despite a slow start and relatively easy puzzles, Indika captivates with its compelling narrative and unique atmosphere. The game's high-quality graphics, especially during dream sequences, and complementary audio enhance the experience. The voice acting adds depth to the characters, making their interactions more engaging. With its thought-provoking story and memorable dark humor, Indika is a standout title that invites multiple playthroughs. It is a must-play for fans of story-driven games, earning a solid 8 out of 10.
