I’ve always enjoyed and admired the ability of a DJ who can rethink music I thought I knew. The way they can smash something to pieces and put it back together in a way no one had thought of delights me. It takes real imagination. And yet, it’s something people scoff at. Is it really art? They’re just copying, they’re not creating something new are they? Or are they?
Monster Train reminds me of them, those DJs. It’s a deck-building Roguelike I loaded up and initially chided – for having cards that looked like they were lifted from HearthStone, and mechanics that felt like they were ripped from Slay the Spire. But then it delighted me by being mashed with something new.
