A solemn and haunting piano track

Gareth Coker was on stage playing a solemn and haunting piano track as the sounds of nature gently faded in and the screen came to life showcasing Ori And The Will Of The Wisps. A massive frog-like creature emerged from a swamp before the screen transitioned to a fantasy-esque windmill. Darkness fell, and we got a look at a spider creature underground in a cavern illuminated by bioluminescent plants. As a storm raged, a purple owl with orange eyes gently paced across the land, staring off into the distance. A glowing imp creature joined its side. The camera panned upwards and revealed the title of the game.

Not much information is available as of yet on the game's official website save for an opportunity to download an MP3 of composer Gareth Coker's live performance at E3. We do know that this will be a sequel to Ori And The Blind Forest; gamers will go on a new adventure where they will uncover the mysteries outside of the borders of the forest of Nibel.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
