For Michibiku’s fifth anniversary, we’re sharing our favorite pieces from our five years of existence. This was originally posted on 8/23/19.
Graham: Games don’t have to be big to be fun! Or polished! Or… objectively good! Above all, we hope the one thing you get from Michibiku is a guide to finding and having fun where you may not know to find it.
What… is this? That’s a fair reaction to Our Flick Erasers, a release from budget game maker SAT-BOX that recently made its way to the West. It’s a simple sort of game with ideas that began on mobile, but it’s packed with nonsense and fun at a very base level. Watch for a better look!
Also known in some regions and on some platforms as Drop Eraser, the game’s about flicking erasers of various shapes and… believability, and basically every idea around that was included with little regard for whether it would work. It’s a fun grab bag in that way! If you pick it up, we’d recommend you try playing it with friends. That’s definitely the way to go!
Topics include: Commitment to branding, inexplicable gacha, anthropomorphized school supplies, the importance of localization, unifying Japan.
