The Sunken Glades is a location in Ori and the Blind Forest, the first non-prologue area that Ori can explore. Located somewhat near Swallow's Nest (the true first area), it is here that a weak and dying Ori is revived by the Spirit Tree's light. The Sunken Glades are a fairly important area because it gives players a chance to become familiar with Nibel while introducing them to the perils and collectibles hidden within. Major pieces of gameplay are explained here, such as the importance of finding Life Cells and Energy Cells, the "Helpful over time" Ability Tree and its branches are described completely, and Ancestral Trees (with their skills) are given meaning.

Ori and the Blind Forest/Definitive EditionEdit

After their death and prompt resurrection, Ori takes their first few steps into the Sunken Glades beyond the Spirit Tree's shadow. The path that they will proceed to later is blocked by spiky bundles of thorns, which cannot be removed by Ori alone.

They will then be forced to venture further down into the Glades, where they will find Life Cells, Energy Cells, Spirit Light and defeat their first enemy (a Rammer) in a tunnel-like chamber. After leaving the tunnel, Ori will find a tiny light, abandoned and stagnant in a small patch of grass. When Ori picks it up, its strength returns and introduces itself as Sein, the light and eyes of the Spirit Tree. Sein offers its help to Ori on their journey, and from that point on acts as a weapon and guide to the spirit.
