luxuria superbia

(from June 9, 2014)


Hello. I'm Cha and I like splashing about in video games. Today I am wading into Luxuria Superbia by Tale of Tales.

The name comes from the seven deadly sins -- it's the Latin for lust and pride -- but it doesn't have any of the negative connotations of that. Everything's very bright and playful. The lust aspect should become fairly obvious in a second. I feel like pride can easily be an aspect any game with the possibility to win or lose, or to earn a higher score, and I struggle with that gamer pride and ego sometimes. But I get the vibe from this game that it's confident it's coming from a good place, with a healthy kind of pride and... delight I guess.
