Introduce about The First Tree
The First Tree is a game that has been very successful on platforms like Nintendo Switch, Steam, Xbox One before being sold on Google Play for $ 4.99. The game is developed by David Wehle, a passionate independent developer. You can track and read some of his information through thefirsttree.com and gamedevunlocked.com websites.
The First Tree is not an animal simulation game
Here’s one thing you need to know. Although the gameplay is somewhat similar to The Wolf and Flight, pure animal simulation games, The First Tree is more complicated than that. The content of the game is divided into two layers of meaning. First, you play the role of a mother fox in the snow mountains of Alaska, on a journey to find her cubs. Follow the light dots on the screen, which are the data that take you to the trees mentioned in the storyline, with the final location is The First Tree.
The fox’s journey is just the tip of the story. On the journey, you will travel to the memory domain of a man named Joseph, through the stories he is telling his wife, Rachel. He tells about his past, his losses, his irreparable pains and mistakes, that make his relationship with his father impossible to heal.
It’s a storytelling game, but The First Tree doesn’t have any text at all. The story is told by Joseph’s voice, so you should use headphones to clearly feel every detail in the plot. I really like the way Rachel patiently listened to the entire story of Joseph, because the plot of the game is quite slow and somewhat cumbersome. The entire story of the game is completed in 2 hours. If you are someone who likes meaningful games, I believe The First Tree won’t waste your 2 hours.
The First Tree has relatively simple controls. You use the joystick on the left side of the screen to control the fox to move. The right side of the screen has only one button to help the fox jump. Tap twice in a row to perform a double jump. That’s all, because the game is not too focused on the controls but just focuses on the story and your experience.
Stunning 3D environment
The First Tree takes you to the snowy mountains of Alaska. You are immersed in a majestic scenery of nature, surrounded by white snow. You can feel it from a third perspective. The world in the game seems to be endless, you go on and on, you still have not seen the end.
3D graphics are designed in detail, sharp. Objects like trees and mountains are very realistic. So is the weather, day/night loop. During the daytime, you may experience glare if you go towards the sun.
Although The First Tree’s graphics are very beautiful and impressive, the scene does not have any major changes. You will soon get tired of moving and see the only one scene like that if you play for an hour.
Music is composed by famous musicians
In order for The First Tree to touch the players’ hearts, the music was especially interested in David Wehle. The soundtrack is composed and played by famous musicians such as Message to Bears, Lowercase Noises and Josh Kramer. The music tracks also flexibly change, depending on the performance of the story, helping the story become deeper and more emotional. You should use headphones to feel the game in detail and completeness.
