I'm looking for games of a particular kind — platformers with richly detailed environments that encourage exploration. Plusses if
- the environment reacts to the player in ways that are more than just game mechanics: plants sway, draperies flutter, etc.
- music is intermittent or mostly composed of natural sounds
- gameplay is branching and puts much of the game world at the player's disposal from the start
Games of all eras and platforms are welcome. Strict platformers are not a requirement, but it seems that games in this genre is the likeliest to fit these criteria.
I am not just looking for Metroidvanias. Thanks for your suggestions!
