Daryl will struggle to climb the social ladder, save a contraband textbook business, and tutor a princess locked deep in the heart of the school. His exploits will send him through time and worlds unknown where history and fiction mingle and come to life. Utilize dozens of skills to create hundreds of unique four-skill combinations and blast your way through hordes of enemies and bosses, leveling and transforming your combat system as you play. You’ll be the most popular kid in school in no time, and you might even save the world.

I want what the guy who made this game smoked

I remember when I first found this game. It was a few months after I got my brand-new Nintendo Switch for Christmas and I was looking for a new game to play. My scrolling stopped when this caught my eye. It was fifteen dollars, so I bought it played it completely blind, and came out with a really good time. That was around five years ago.

Now here I am. I managed to get my grubby fat hands on a Switch OLED and now I'm waiting for Breath Of The Wild 2 to release. To fill that time I've been dabbling with a few Indies, and replaying Mario Galaxy. Then, while going through the Eshop once more redownloading a few things this game caught my eye again.

To say Super Daryl Deluxe is a weird game would be an understatement. This is a total acid trip from the start where you're having textbooks thrown at you from an octopus version of a character you meet later to the final boss being a buff-as-hell skeleton. All packaged with an art style that while being cartoony can be grossly realistic at times their details.

The writing and tone sometimes feel like something tailor-made for me with dozens of characters just there to give you a short side quest that rewards you with some funny dialogue. The main reward 100% the game is just more dialogue and this is one of the rare cases where I'm fine with that. You'll never know what kinda wacky shit they throw at you next and it's all taken surprisingly seriously.

In short Super Daryl Deluxe while not perfect in some areas is a triumph in comedic video games. If I were to recommend one game I have reviewed, even though it might not be for everyone I defiantly recommend Super Daryl Deluxe. It desperately deserves more love.

One of my favorite narratives in gaming and some of my favorite boss fights. Absolutely criminal and this doesn't have more eyes on it.

All around good metroidvania gameplay-wise which is elevated by its simply fantastic writing and art style. I'm kinda surprised this doesn't have a cult following or something like that but marketing is more important than ever these days and I personally stumbled upon this game by chance.
