Review of Cradle


Rating by Relic posted on Sep 2, 2017


Never leaving the Cradle


This game holds your hand the entire time, to the point where there is no use in stacking objects where they are needed. They just respawn at there original locations when you leave the area, and you can't do obvious things like install your solar panel and battery array until the game wants you too. Plenty of information is lying around to read, so much so that the questions your avatar asks seem pointless and ignorant if you've read enough. The story and the graphics save the game. The mini-games nearly kill it,fortunately they can be skipped and despite there being 10 terminals you only have to use 4. Dying is frequent in the 'amusement park': falling from great heights, overcome by black clouds and occasionally just flung up in the air for no reason...not to mention trying to manipulate a power cable quickly enough as lighting strikes in the same place again and again. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of Lone Echo

Lone Echo Best VR adventure yet


I have well over 100 Vive and Oculus Vive/Oculus demos, games, and sims and I really believe that Lone echo is the best absorbing, touching, fun, and sad VR games I have ever experienced. I'm a 40 year IT professional and 62 YO gamer and really enjoy this sim after a hard day at work. Great job devs. Lets see some similar works of art from the rest of you. I'm developing my soon to be retirement skills to aspire to creating this type of world using Epic and Unity (for now) once I'm done supporting educating the youth of america in higher ed. Time Played: Over 20 hours

Review of Tacoma


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 14, 2017


Way too short but worth it


Good: - Great gaming mechanics : it's your job to recover Tacoma's virtual videodata and find out what happened. You can fastforward,pauze or rewind these segments. I recommend you turn off the help in the options, makes it much more interesting. -Lot's of detail: you piece together the story mainly by the video segments but the articles,chats,mails certainly enrichen it. - Likeable "down to earth" characters. I would've like more depth and perhaps some drama between them. Still i'm satisfied. - Decent graphics and great voiceacting - The option to turn down "help" options. Bad: - No puzzles besides figuring out the security code of three doors by watching the video's and some lockers. - You can't pocken an item when you pick it up. You have to hold it your hands the whole time if you want to unlock a locker. - Som many pickable items and pretty much all pointless - Too dark sometimes. No option to turn on lights or have some kind of flashlight. - You can't run. - Predictable ending. - Too short, i finished it in 3 hours and i've done all the extra's. Conclusion: I would recommend it if you like walking simulators. The game's length is too short but worth it. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of Murder in Tehran's Alleys 1933


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 7, 2017


Only play when you are that desperate


What a horrible game! (only) Bad : Lots of bugs: The amount of times i had to reload an earlier save game because the game froze! Yes i was that desperate because i was curious as who the killer was. Terrible gameplay: you have to pick a certain item or do something else (for no reason whatsoever) or the game doesn't progress! God the pain! Translation is bad but it's doable. The MC's body model does not look like the one in the comic cutscenes (gray hair, thinner,etc..). Terrible ending. Conclusion: avoid it! I have no idea how this ever got greenlighted on Steam, such a terrible product. There's also a sequel but no way i'll try that one. Time Played: 5-10 hours
Difficulty: Hard

Review of Conarium


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 6, 2017


Forgettable


Good: - Decent graphics, uses the unreal engine - Good voice acting - Great scenery, the statues were really creepy Bad: - Hardly any puzzles and way too easy - Inventory selection to solve puzzles is done automatically - Typical Cthulhu story with an abrupt ending - Too short - Not scary Conclusion : If you are looking for puzzles/story you won't find it here. The environments are great and the voyage to the underground caves is interesting but ultimately forgettable. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of Thimbleweed Park


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 5, 2017


Started great but ruined by a chaotic storyline and meta shenanigans


Spoilers ahead! Good: - Great graphics, i'm a sucker for pixels. - Great voiceacting - Retro text option! - Love the "normal/hard" choice! - Some fun eastereggs for the more veteran adventure players Bad : - You could solve puzzles and acquire items that you don't need at that point in the story which creates a chaotic gameplay. Also the check list is a really bad help tool when you are stuck in the game as some quests can only be done in a different chapter or end of the game (e.g: dad's redemption, fingerprint chuck,etc..). Also some illogical puzzles and bugs. - The dialog options are sometimes over the top. I always cringed when they talked about adventure games/Lucasarts. - What's up with the story? I had the impression the murder story didn't pan out so they went all matrix which failed horribly! I mean they could've implented it much better in the story, but instead it made every chapter pretty much pointless. - Terrible locations. All dead. The music doesn't help either. The map you use to travel around is horribly made, it looks like it was made in MS Paint. Oh yes, they used the empty dead locations as part of the storyline..yeah right, they probably ran out of money/time. - Uninteresting characters. Everyone in town was so bland. The playable characters too except maybe Ransome and Delores. Conclusion : The story really bombed. The puzzles are decent. The characters are boring. It is still worth it? No, i say skip it and go play Monkey Island 2. Time Played: 5-10 hours
