Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale reviews and comments

A Farm full of Puzzles and Suspense, a profound Story that becomes increasingly clear as the Game progresses. You orient yourself on the Trailer and don't expect much, but you are positively surprised! The Graphics are very dark and anything but fabulous, but that's what only makes the Game more exciting! Still, the Graphics are as you'd expect it from today. There's definitely nothing to fault about That. The Sound is a little weird when running and the Switch to another Surface doesn't seem so great, yet the sound Effects and the Music are quite aptly chosen and provide a lasting Tension. The Controls are simple and you don't need much Buttons to house the Game. The Puzzles or Puzzles are not very difficult, but still have to think carefully about how to use Things. Similarly, you should look two times for some Things or look right right in order not to overlook important Things. There is a lot to do before you have played through the Game and the Story gradually gets more intense! Since I am a huge Fan Of Adventure games and I find the Game very successful, I can recommend it not only to Adventure Fans of this Game, but also to everyone else:-)

Among the innocent: a stricken tale is a first-person adventure game created by the independent Studio zero degrees games located in Johannesburg, South Africa. The story: this title is the first episode of a series that will include 5 chapters. The introduction begins as an illustrated book in black and white. The Narrator tells us the story of Peter York, a writer who, after an argument with his wife, goes to calm down with his motorcycle. He rolls in the wind, until his blood pressure goes down, but when he gets home, a rockslide drops rocks on his motorcycle making it unusable. He finds himself stuck in an abandoned farm where he decides to spend the night... https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1438263087 the graphics and mechanics: you start by exploring the places, like a walking Simulator but with enriched mechanics and drawn into the adventure games point and click with objects to use or combine, puzzles to solve, and letters and other small things to collect. You are not taken by the hand, you are alone, with your Questionings, your intrigues and your discoveries. The environment is composed of South African places, it is rather pretty but sometimes dark and Gore also... https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1438263763 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1438264353 some puzzles are not easy to solve especially the one with the nails but it is possible for you to help by consulting the clues, see even the complete solution on the developer site. This game is immersive and we want to finish it in a single milking, it is not very long (this is only a first episode), its duration will depend on your speed to understand and solve the puzzles. There is a lot of intrigue, and something that I enjoyed very much: I never thought "Ah I suspected it was that or that it would pass this or that". On the other hand the end is fast, may not be sloppy but bizarre, I did not expect this submersion there and I hope there will really be a sequel because if it stops here the end would be rather disappointing for me... This is a promising start, business to follow hoping for a sequel... If you enjoyed this review and would like to discover other games come and follow my page of curation.
