In The Pathless, players control the Hunter and her pet eagle as she explores an open fantasy world and defeats corrupting bosses.

The game has been praised for its smooth movement system that sees the Hunter using her bow to shoot emblems and receive a speed boost.

It received a Recommended badge in our Eurogamer review, describing it as a "sparse yet memorable adventure".

"You can race through this whole adventure and be done in four hours, probably less. But when you're on the ground or in the air the game often feels endless: clear and spacious, slopes and contours and steppes in every direction," wrote our Christian Donlan.

Giant Squid's previous game was underwater explorathon ABZÛ, which Eurogamer was a fan of when it released.
