This is a very special game. Fujii is absolutely full of charm, character, and magic. While I haven’t even finished it in 2.5hrs, I’m already in love. It’s the type of experience that you want to play through slowly and savor, enjoying the beautiful sounds and sights. The aesthetic and the experience as a whole is incredibly relaxing - exploring, gathering light to push further, and collecting seeds to grow a garden.

And beyond is the Index controller support. It’s absolutely wonderful being able to grab, pull, and interact with the world using fully tracked fingers. The implementation is extremely well done and adds so much to the experience. This was the first game I tried after receiving the new controllers, and I think it was a perfect choice. I’ll likely use it as a first experience to show others the Index controllers as well.

Did you ever play Okami and think to yourself “Man, I wish this were a puzzle game/gardening sim”? If so, the answer to that wish would be Fuji.

The Good:

1. Art Direction – Fuji has style in spades. The cute cartoon graphics are simple, but lively and loaded with character. Everything moves, wiggles, bounces, and dances in this world. The radiant color palette pops vibrantly, and the environment is full of music and surreal chirps and warbles from the flora and fauna around you. Some areas are genuinely moving in their beauty – be sure to visit the standing stones atop the mountain in the desert. Don’t forget to look up once you’ve activated everything there!
