Confession time, folks. Of all the games shown off during The Game Awards last December, Tales Of Kenzera: Zau was the one I glossed over the most. Listen, it was very early in the morning at the time, and it must have come at a peak eyes-glazing-over moment for me. However, having now played the first 30 minutes of Tales Of Kenzera thanks to its just-released early Steam Next Fest demo, I have seen the error of my ways. The demo might only cover the game’s opening, but this 2.5D Metroidvania already looks to be quite the promising newcomer in this ever-crowded genre – so much so that it may even be able to go toe to toe with Ubisoft’s Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown. Yep, I went there.
