This was one of those games I backed on Kickstarter a long time ago that had some serious promise to tell a good horror story and introduce some interesting mechanics to a new game series. It’s a sidescroller that tells a fun detective story. Overall a simple to play game not requiring much in the way of fast pace button mashing. A chill and thoughtful game that puts you into a Future filled with interesting characters and a story that makes you think about the world it’s introducing to you.

The bases of the game is to search for clues to progress the story. Action and horror wise it holds a silent creepy something is around the corner stalking you vibe to it. Personally I LOVE that feel. It’s very puzzle heavy in that you will be put into places that require you to remember places for items you check thru out the game. Take notes! Read logs and really it homes in on your ability to be a true detective.

Some of the puzzles are rather hard and a couple of em I found myself saying “DUH! Why didn’t I think of that!!”..which is exactly what you want out of game like this. It’s fun!

In terms of content I am pleased with it. It turned the gears in my head I wanted it too and really I hope we get more of this series in the future as it has a cool world to explore and a very interesting story to tell!

Jumped into another MMO “Said I wouldn’t …but”… This was worth it!

I was having a big craving for some good horror. Honestly so many games today titled “horror” are mostly jump scares and crappy stories. I wanted to find something that would catch my interest. I had seen “The Secret World” about for awhile.. just didn’t know what to think of it and honestly I HATE MMO’S at this point..but this game.. WOW Did it catch my interest…

So you start the game out with the same old same old. Pc download of the game which cost about 30 bucks. The good thing is that NO SUBSCRIPTION. You pay for the game 30 bucks and that’s pretty much all you need after that. The game does have some episodes after the main game but honestly paying the 30 bucks will cause you to play more then 200 hours of game play. It’s an MMO so really figuring out what missions to go on is really up to you and the worlds are MASSIVE..”hence MMO”..

The start of the game has you choose between one of three Factions “Illuminati (From New York), Templar (From London), and the Dragon (From Korea). Each Faction has a back-story and in that back-story you will develop your characters back-story. You create an agent and work your way in and out of Modern day Myths, Legends, and stories. This part is what really drives the game. You set out on your missions to go after Zombies, Vampires, Ghost, Monsters, and all sorts of different horror elements.

Now while the game plays out like most MMOs having to click and point and set number buttons for actions. It has a very diverse game-play element to it. ¬†Action, Puzzle, Mystery, Searching Horror elements, and character building is just part of what builds the game. I honestly haven’t played a game that makes so many elements mix and mix well not left field at all. To explain it best it’s like watching the X-files mixed with World of Warcraft elements. It all takes place in real time so most of the people you meet are real people. With that the community is very NICE.. and well monitored unlike most MMOs. It becomes a group of support and fun!
