Sayri: The Beginning is another intriguing reveal from the Wholesome Games Direct 2020. This super-cute game has you taking on the role of a weirdly-adorable alien centaur thing who has had to flee home and crash lands on the fantasy world of Ayris.
Take a look at this Sayri teaser trailer from earlier in the year to get a sense of all of its wonderful weirdness:
Described as "the video game equivalent of a warm hug," Sayri featured vibrant colors in its lush alien world. There's a lot of cool stuff to see here, so much so that it's inspired our hero to call this new world home.
The journey won't be easy, though — there are plenty of obstacles to overcome. You'll discover secrets and unlock new abilities, some of which are centered on your telekinetic powers. A key element of this game, however, will be making some new friends.
Making Friends in Sayri: The Begining
Ayris is packed full of creatures as strange as you are, and some of them will be happy to be your friends. Others, however, aren't so nice and will provide a fair few challenges for you to overcome, nevermind the curious puzzles this game has in store.
From what we can tell, Sayri has some innate powers from the get-go. That repertoire can be expanded somehow by making friends in this strange new world. One scenario we saw was a cute critter apparently trapped by a much larger creature. Presumably, saving it will also make it a friend and give you a new way to explore the world.
You can expect to play Sayri sometime in 2020. For now, you can add Sayri: The Beginning to your wishlist on Steam. You should also check out its official website at sayriadventure.com.
