Similar to the previous titles that came out of Reflections’ incubator, Ode is simple. There’s no HUD, hints, instructions or threats — just exploration within its exploratory synaesthesia. In summary, it’s a “musical exploration where you gradually bring a world to life through music and light,” the game’s producer Anne Langouriuex said in Ubisoft’s blog post announcing Ode. In it, you play the star Joy who rolls around in a ball gathering glowing celestial fragments, which trail behind the character for use in puzzles — think Yoshi’s Story mechanics mixed with the emotional world of Pixar’s Inside Out.
Ode is available now on Ubisoft’s UK store for £4.50, though it’s unclear when it will be available in other markets (it’s not on the US store).
