CWs for Wandersong: familial death, body horror
Wandersong is an earnest adventure-platformer. The game is packed to the brim with RPG homage and stapled to the dinkiest toy keyboard you've ever played with. The meta-narrative move to have the player characters discuss being or not being The Hero isn't really interesting to me when it's being on the nose or working through homage. The same thought, however, is really phenomenal when characters are dancing and bouncing off one another in this kind of comics and theater kind of mode. It's quiet and somber and kind of strange when you realize things do and don't revolve around you.
When I was younger, I played a video game called Wandersong. In it, you play as a bard who goes on a quest to sing the world back to life after the apocalypse. As you travel, you meet different people and learn about their cultures and their music. You also learn about the different ways that music can be used to heal the world.
This game made me think a lot about the role of music in our lives. It made me realize that music is more than just entertainment. It can be a powerful force for good. It can bring people together and help them to heal from trauma.
Music is one of the few things that can transcend time and space. It can connect us to our past, present, and future selves. It can remind us of who we are and what we are capable of.
The world is a beautiful and terrible place. It is full of both light and darkness. Music can help us to see the beauty in the world, even in the midst of darkness. It can help us to find hope in the midst of despair.
Music is a powerful tool. It can be used to build bridges or to tear them down. It can be used to bring people together or to divide them. It can be used to heal the world or to hurt it.
The choice is ours.
