Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Thursday 9 August 2012

I wouldn’t even know about the existence of Chewy: Esc from F5 if it hadn’t been featured in the Adventure game scene uh game thread a few times (several years ago, back when I still paid attention to that thread). And I know nothing about it, except that it has a clever name, looks cute, and was made by a German company called New Generation Software (which doesn’t seem to have left much of a mark on the adventure genre).

Any opinions?

I liked it at first. And then I didn’t. Got bored, I suppose. IMO a mediocre game.

Guns n’ Roses did a decent cover of that.

Never played the game.

 

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Chewy: Esc from F5… I know nothing about it

Lucky you.

One of the worst adventures I played: the story is so stupid (if there is any, I never managed to completely understand what I was doing in that game and why) and the “humo(u)r” only adds insult to injury. Skip it by all means.

On the positive side: the graphics was/were good (for 1995) and there were a couple of interesting puzzles.

i thought the scene of the day cared about Games considered to be the Gems of Adventures or even close to, but its not so bad to give a place for the bad ones as well. Grin

i always loved the Cartoony Themed Adventures ,More than those trying to be Realistic, but this one was a biggest failure of them all, even the tile escaping From F5 makes you wonder how the developers failed to understand Humor in the 1st place

the only feature held in Chewy that would make me say anything good about (and only if i considered it was released in 1995)  ,is that i will be sent sent back to an earlier point when i accrue a death scene within a supposedly cutscene! Pan

I watched a playthrough of some of the game on YouTube.  A couple of spots made me smile, but it seemed very “talky.”

Sherlin (or should I say “Spam Bot”), would you be so kind as to explain to us what that site you linked to (the one with that vampire chick) has to do with a game we’re talking about here (which is, apparently, Chewy: Esc from F5)?

I mean, beside the fact you like it.

Edit: I referred to a post by someone called “sherlin”, a post now deleted.

As always I’m the one that likes the game everyone hates.  Neutral I Enjoyed Chewy once I got through the first part. Long game too. Only thing I didn’t like was th high pitched “What are you doing?!” everytime I tried something unnecessary.

A lot of the ‘Gems of Adventure’ get a lot of exposure anyway so I think it’s great, with there being hundreds plus of games I’ve never played or even heard of, to have scenes from a variety of games, good, bad & lower profile, to generate discussion & opinions about them which I really enjoy reading.

I can remember the fact that I played this game years ago but I remember hardly anything about it except the graphics. I still have the CD somewhere, but I can’t really say i’m tempted to fire it up for a replay.

I like the graphical style, but after reading what you guys have to say about it I’m not really tempted to try it out.

^ This.

The graphics make me think of Day of the Tentacle, but reading all that criticism… No, thanks.
