Wait, what did that title say? Something about home fitness? Oh no, that means I have to get up and move again… Over the years, many have tried mixing a game console with physical activity. All the way back on the NES, there was the Power Pad mat controller with World Class Track Meet. Then
A game like Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin feels like an eventual inevitability. I’ve noted before that Demon’s Souls is a game that’s spawned a lot of imitations, largely because… well, it has.
