Old school, 2D sidescrolling, games are not all that popular on consoles for some reason (it is their birthplace). Ori and the Blind Forest – Definitive Edition is available on Windows 10, apparently the new home of 2D old school games. Ori and the Blind Forest has now seen an update that brings along with it new levels, new difficulty levels and other benefits thanks to Windows 10.
On Windows 10, Ori and the Blind Forest is able to take advantage of higher resolutions and monitor support. There is also cross saving between Windows 10 and Xbox One versions. This is a nice addition for owners of both platforms.
Interestingly, if you own the original Ori and the Blind Forest on Steam you can upgrade to the Definitive Edition for a measly $4.99. This is again, a welcome addition that will obviously save gamers money. This reminds me that it really sucks that most developers release one version of a game then six to twelve months later release a new version and charge ALL gamers full price.
