Mori Music Finds: Misc (7)

Hello my deers! I have yet another collection of various mori music finds for you all today. As always, I hope you enjoy! Happy listening.

1) 그 밤 /The Night by Lovewave: This lovely song is both melancholic and softly relaxing. It's an easy-listening sort of song, and hauntingly beautiful.

2) Iris (Shiawase no Hako) by SALYU: Although this song was written for Professor Layton, it has long been one of my all-time favorite songs. It is such a beautiful song, with gorgeous vocals from Salyu and some unique chords that really make the song super catchy.

3) Jikan Ryoukou (Time Travel) by Ann Sally: This is another song from Professor Layton. If you've played the games, it might make you cry a bit. Regardless, the piano in this song is absolutely beautiful, and it always makes me want to sing along!

4) Spring Clean by Maisie Peters: Maisie Peters is a very talented songwriter, and although this song of hers is rather obscure, I've loved it since she released it. The lyrics are so clever and nostalgic, and the music is very catchy.

5)老いぼれ犬の口笛 by EGO-WRAPPIN': A fellow mori friend shared this song with me a while back, and I quite love it! It's soft and relaxing, another easy listener.

6) The rain is singing (and so I listen) by KB Melody: I've shared some of KB Melody's music before, and as always, I love their work. This song is soft and relaxing, and the rain sounds in the background make it even better.

Have you ever heard of these songs before? If so, how did you like them? If not, I hope you enjoyed.

Mori Game Finds: What Remains of Edith Finch

Hello my deers! I have something new to share with you today that I hope you'll enjoy. I am personally a big fan of video games, and so I always love it when I can find games that give me a mori feel. So that is what I would like to share with you today. Today's game is "What Remains of Edith Finch".

What Remains of Edith Finch is not my usual type of go-to game, but I purchased it on a whim, and I'm super glad I did. The game is an interactive storytelling game where you walk through the life of the family of Edith Finch, all while exploring her family home. Some of the themes of the stories can be a bit sad or distressing, as they all involve stories of those who have passed, but each is done is such an amazing and interesting way. It makes you feel as if you are there. experiencing the story for yourself. 

Although the stories are great, my favorite part of the game is its amazing environments. As you explore the old Finch home and the forest surrounding it, it feels so real and lived in. It gave the game such a unique feel and really helped to immerse me in the story.

Overall, this game was amazing for me. It's rather short and easy to get through, but it was so engrossing that I wanted to keep playing and finish the story. In fact, I ended up playing it in two sittings, and in between, I couldn't stop thinking about it! And even after I had finished the entire game, I kept going back to replay different sections to find all of the hidden secrets.

So, what is mori about this game? The stories, in particular, are not especially mori, but the environment of the game is located in an old house in the middle of the forest, which gives off a very mori feel. And the way the house is created, and the stories told, have that "enjoy the small things" feel that many mori folk enjoy.

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes visually appealing games, or storytelling. I think it is an absolute gem and it has become one of my all-time favorite games I have ever played.

Have you heard of What Remains of Edith Finch? If so, did you enjoy playing the game? Do you also think it has a mori feel? I would love to hear your opinions in the comments below. Also, what are some "mori" games you have played? I would love to hear your recommendations! Until next time, my deers!
