The opening to Creature in the Well is masterfully done and you need to see it for yourself
Seriously, it’s so good.
Creature in the Wellis a new game by studio Flight School and the best way I can describe it is, “What if a pinball machine was a dungeon?”
You play as an old robot – a BOT-C engineer, to be specific – and you wake up in a desert, headed towards an ominous mechanical mountain enveloped in a sandstorm. A nearly desolate village sits at the foot of the mountain, its inhabitants terrified of you even though you don’t know why. You enter, armed with only a metal pipe, your mission unknown.

With Creature in the Well, I was immediately fascinated by both the world and the mechanics and just struck by how brilliantly and quickly the game gets you into all of that. Hitting pinballs around a dungeon feels amazing.
I need to know what happened to this world. What is the creature? What was the BOT-C program and what happened to the rest of them? Where do I find all of this game’s secrets? Honestly, the opening to this game is as good as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and that’s tied with Dark Souls for my favorite game of all time.
