Releasing later this week on 29th August across multiple platforms, on the face of it, Decay of Logos draws plenty of parallels with something like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. According to Amplify Creations, though, you'll discover a focus on narrative and a darkness that you might not be expecting.

That's not to say it's simply channelling Dark Souls, either. The game puts you in the shoes of a protagonist with vengeance on the mind following a particularly bleak introduction, but the development team seems keen to clarify that Decay of Logos offers a very different kind of experience despite the superficial similarities.

In this exclusive 'Making Of' video from the development studio, we discover more about the character of Ada, get a behind-the-scenes look at the genesis of the game and its three-and-a-half year journey to consoles. We also see how Amplify has sought to avoid 'hand-holding' and gives players the opportunity to discover the world's mysteries for themselves.

You may be waiting for our review of the game, but due to circumstances involving out-of-date review builds, it'll be a little while longer before that's ready. In the meantime enjoy the video above and keep an eye out for our verdict soon.
