Exceptinal, but not for everyone


First off, to notice, I will shortly review the whole game up to act 3. It is all the same game after all. Acts 4 and 5 still to come but I will do my short review now.

This game is exceptional, inovative, creative, it s just crazy, this kind of art you can see only in indie adventure games I guess Smile.

It is more like an interactive story, you wont get stuck with puzzles, there are no actual classical puzzles, you might find your self struggling to find a location in a game world, there are maybe a few real puzzles, simple and short. I like that, I dont like when puzzles slow down the narative, this does not happen in the Zero. But on the other hand, narrative is pretty weird and hard to get, It s one of the core concepts of the game, weirdness, confusion, mystery, but it slowly unfolds and pieces are coming together, but you must be focused a bit to get it.

I cant stress enough how this piece of art is inovative in gameplay and original in atmosphere. It does rely on classical adventure game concepts, but it makes a huge twists, you have a feeling like you are creating the story and experiencing it at the same time.

Allthough this is a great game, or better to say an art installation wrapped into a game, not everyone will find it enjoyable. This is the thing with indie adventure games, some of them are just exceptional, art masterpieces, like this one, but only some people will resonate with their atmosphere, concept, story… Although I have given this game 4.5/5 stars, because it really deserves it, I wont play act 4 and 5 when they come out. Because, this game actually does not make me feel good. That might be the quallity, valuable experiences are often not pleasant, but in the end of experience you feel somehow enriched. Still, on the other hand, people play games to have fun, to feel good for at least most of the time. So in my particular case, this is not a game I will return to or I will remember this game as I remember Longest journey or Grim Fandango. But I am really glad I have played it because I salvaged an oportunity for a real life enriching experience, dont miss it ! Smile
