[PlayStation 4] Sister Review
Sister from DillyFrame Games is a gloomy black-and-white story without words inspired by the aesthetics of Zvyagintsev’s early films. Check our Sister review!
Sister from DillyFrame Games is a gloomy black-and-white story without words inspired by the aesthetics of Zvyagintsev’s early films. It’s very similar to the type of experience we got from A Matter of Principle from DillyFrame Games earlier in the year, which means that you’ll be clicking your way through each frame of the story, one frame at a time. Just press the X button, soak in what the wordless scene has to offer, and carry on to the next one. And after that, to the next one, and so on.
Without spoiling things too much, Sister is about the love of a brother and sister who have lived through a rather harsh upbringing. A family of three lives in a house on the banks of the river in complete isolation from the rest of the world. The father is very strict, and you can get a feel for this during the initial chapter of the game. And once life carries on with its cycle and the father is no more, it will be time for the siblings to choose if they’re going to follow in their father’s steps or if it’s time for them to do things their own way.
Sister has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and it’s a long list for you to work on. The list includes 6 Bronze trophies, 29 Silver trophies, and a single Gold trophy. Trophies are tied to completing each of the game’s chapters, collecting a bunch of balloons, dying a handful of times, and jumping 20 times. The balloons you’ll collect during the autorunner segment of the game. You might want to check out this Sister Trophy Guide for some extra help.
If you enjoyed A Matter of Principle on PlayStation 4, then you’ll get what Sister is trying to do on Sony’s console. You’ll get to experience a story only told by way of its images as you get to know a family of three living through hardship. There’s also an autorunner you can play on the side. Sister is out on PlayStation 4 with a low price of only $3.99. There’s also a PlayStation 5 version of the game available as a separate purchase for the same price.
