Ori and the Blind Forest was a 2015 Metroidvania platforming game inspired by The Lion King, The Iron Giant, and games like Rayman.

It follows a guardian spirit who must gather elements that will restore balance to the forest of Nibel. In the sequel, Ori must explore the world beyond the forest to discover other “lost ones” and the truth behind their destiny.
