    Déraciné is a delicately told melancholy short where you play a faerie in a small boarding school. A gentle narrative, which has characters with fully animated faces (abnormal for From Software), that will move you to solve it's tender story-teller's puzzles as you attempt to right the wrongs of their past. The string duo soundtrack perfectly conveys the character's woeful innocence as theDéraciné is a delicately told melancholy short where you play a faerie in a small boarding school.

The string duo soundtrack perfectly conveys the character's woeful innocence as the sullen melodies chase each other down the hallowed halls of this unforgettable school. It's end will likely leave you with a heavy heart and throughout it's unfolding, your head will be spinning with how characters, settings, and details from this faerie tale might possibly connect to other FS titles...

    Déraciné is a slow build with little in the way of VR gimmicks or challenge but come its conclusion I was satisfied with how the tale played out.

    Déraciné subverts Japanese horror tropes as easily as it conceals the limitations of virtual reality. By casting the player in an active and passive role in its narrative, it juxtaposes agency with accountability as it creates a tranquil, sinister story. Déraciné is a return to FromSoftware practicing their talent inside of darkness, but mercifully away from Souls.

    Déraciné isn't really a true VR title as the VR doesn't bring much to the experience. Still it's an enjoyable ride as From Software has loads of know-how in terms of narrative and artistic direction.
