Agent 8 – Remember Who You Are (Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion)

Really enjoyed playing the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2 – even more the Single Player campaign. There’s so much lore and mystery and inward reflection going on for the characters. Really makes Splatoon 2 one of the best games for the Nintendo Switch!

I like how it’s an inward adventure, a journey of self-(re)discovery. I’m a huge sucker for journeys of identity, for analyses & actualizations of self. I like to think the mind is a vast as outer space, and the Octo Expansion is a puzzle-maze set in the vastness of the mind. 

Here is Agent 8, struggling to grasp the first of anything she knows to be familiar – the first piece of her Self.

…But then I realized this was someone fighting for her identity, so I added a bit more tension.
