When someone describes their upcoming game as “Wind Walker meets Dark Souls” you’re going to grab a lot of folks attention – ours included. Ascension Games Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim has been described as that, and as of today they are inching towards being successfully funded on Kickstarter. Cornerstone: Song of Tyrim Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim is an Action/RPG that takes place in an open-world where you’ll take on the role of a kid named Tyrim. He may be young, but he’s the son of a Viking warriors, so the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. We won’t go into the story too much, but it’s interesting as is the game. The world of Cornerstone is laid out similar to Wind Walker as you’ll get a series of connected islands with most areas being accessible from the jump. Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim encourages exploration and its combat system discourages any button mashing which is never a bad thing. Did we mention the crafting system? It has that, quests, bosses, and there are even some puzzles thrown in for good measure.
