Guiding a couple of kids through a rat pandemic in Medieval France might be an odd elevator pitch for a game – but let me tell you, A Plague Tale: Innocence was one of my favourites from last year.
It’s a tale of two young siblings cut adrift and left vulnerable in a beautiful, horrible world. It’s a stealthy, puzzley adventure with some increasingly cool special powers. And it has really, really freaky rats.
Today brought the announcement the game has now passed 1m sales worldwide since launch.
