Ever Oasis is an action-adventure role-play game that is every bit as interesting as its name entails.
Your character is a seedling – and no… you are not exactly a plant; more of a human with the power to create foliage out of “thin air”; but there is a catch. You have to join forces with a water spirit to create your very own Oasis. (as in real life if you don’t provide water to a plant it won’t grow)
The story starts out with you following your brother Nour through his Oasis. He is mentoring you and providing you with valuable information so that someday you can create and run your own Oasis. You are a Chief in training and your brother’s pride and belief in you makes you determined to be the best chief you can be. Your whirl wind powers are growing stronger and soon you will be able match your brother’s power… or so you though.
As Nour is showing you around a chaos creature invades your land and tragedy strikes. All you want to do is help but Nour shoves you away with his power and engulfs you in a cocoon that will transport you far away from danger.
In your sadness and turmoil, you do not pay attention to your surrounding and soon you are found by a bubbly and quite lonely water spirit called Esna. The two of you are quite convinced that you are last of your kind and decide to band together to create the most beautiful Oasis ever. With this you are required to journey far and wide in search of other survivors. Battling monsters and chaos itself.
Developers – Grezzo, had a remarkable story line in mind and executed it with flare and passion. The game play is easy to understand and the controls are quick to learn. The graphics are colourful and full of life (pardon the pun).
You have many quests to complete and quite a few recruitments to make from other villages to ensure that you will succeed in defeating chaos. This game will keep you busy for hours, that is though, provided you do not die and remember to save as the game was not fitted with auto save (or I’m just blond).
As you start the game there is a lot of dialog, please do not be discouraged, it does get better. The dialog is basically your tutorial and a guide on how to use your powers and how to navigate your surroundings.
It is a great game and awesome for those in between times when you just need a break.
