Let's Play Run Saber
Run Saber is an action-platformer developed by Horisoft/Hori Electronic, and it appears to be their only game. It stars two androids with powerful sabers, impressive agility, and a strong desire to save the world. Mostly this means we can cling to walls like Spider-Man and our main mode of attack is absurdly useful. Neither of those are why it's interesting, though.
Why is it interesting?
It's got creative enemy designs, lots of mini-bosses, good music, and it's just kinda weird. While certainly not as surreal as some other old games, it has a persistent atmosphere that makes it feel rather like a 90s Japanese OVA. Expect an anime rivalry, a reasonable amount of variety, some mildly messed-up visuals, and it's over before you know it.
We're going to be playing through the game on Normal mode with the default settings while using the female playable character: Sena. This is because it is undeniably easier to win with her.
