UltraGoodness 2 is the latest from Ratalaika,  the first UltraGoodness still remaining a Steam only joint. It shares the same developer in Rasul Mono with music from Sergey Mozharovskiy.

Whist I may still be a relative newcomer to the Ys franchise each game I play impresses me immensely as does Falcom’s output as a whole. I’ve played Ys Origins and Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA and now the trend continues with Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. Again you play as […]
