Jim Sterling's taste is almost completely opposite of mine.
So I'm gonna skip this.

It's a good roguelike, but game of the year seems overly generous. Unlike last year, there is some good competition this year.

So with a full quarter of the year still to go, he's announced this as his GotY.

It's an excellent game, but I agree there's plenty of good candidates still coming up.

I've no idea who he/she is, or even anything about the game. But then he/she likely doesn't know me either, so that is that!

If I were to compare the game specifically to other action based roguelikes I suspect it would be game of the year. The level of quality is definitely something you don't normally see in that genre, both in terms of gameplay and in terms of general polish/world building/story.

If I were to compare it to every game released this year in every genre, I probably wouldn't consider it GOTY, but that's incredibly subjective depending on what type of game you prefer.

It has won the Critic's Choice and Best Indie Game awards at the Golden Joysticks awards 2020. That must count for something

Not the Best Audio, Best Visual Design or Best Storytelling though, which go to The Last of Us 2, I have to admit the gameplay videos I've watched were impressive, but it's only for Playstation so..

.. and now it's on sales, on Steam (wish it were on GOG!).

That's so tempting.
