Indie titles are hitting Xbox Game Pass every week at the moment, but there's one that seems to constantly be capturing Xbox boss Phil Spencer's attention, and that's Lost Words: Beyond the Page.
Spencer's love for the game began in April when he described it as a "really a special game" with a "fantastic atmosphere, writing and mechanics". That's some mighty high praise!
"I'm playing this game and it's really a special game. Fantastic atmosphere, writing and mechanics. If you haven't given it a try I recommend it."
It continued when the game was announced for Xbox Game Pass earlier this month, prompting Spencer to highlight it, claiming it's a "very creative and unique game" and he was "looking forward to more people getting to play" it.
"Very creative and unique game. Looking forward to more people getting to play."
Then, when it was actually added, he was back again — this time thanking the studio for the partnership:
"Very touching game with a really creative point of view. Thanks for the partnership on #XboxGamePass."
Now, Spencer is still broadcasting the game but appears to be at a loss of words. Seemingly running out of ways to praise it, Spencer has simply taken to uploading a picture of the game with generic hashtags.
Sometimes actions can be louder than words and seeing Spencer dedicate this amount of time and praise to Lost Words: Beyond the Page this year says a lot. Having joined Xbox Game Pass this month, maybe it's a sign we should all drop what we're playing and give it a proper go.
The Microsoft Store description says you'll spend your time within a "young girl’s diary to solve puzzles, tackle unique platforming segments and discover an emotional tale set across the vibrant world of Estoria". It sounds pretty enchanting and judging by Spencer's praise, it's a game we should probably not miss.
