Betrayer is a first-person horror game developed by Blackpowder Games.


The game is set in the 17th-century state of Virginia. The protagonist awakes on a shore with no memory of the events leading him here. He goes to Fort Henry which appears to be completely abandoned. The whole colony is actually abandoned, yet there are hostile beings whose bodies consist of burning embers. The protagonist goes on to seek answers about what actually happened in the colony.


Betrayer heavily relies on stealth in its gameplay. There are no clear paths or objective for the players to follow. This was made specifically to deprive the players of any sense of direction and encourage exploration of a monochrome game world. It is essential to listen to specific sounds in the game, as some of them will guide the players towards a clue or an important item. The clues are documented and put in your inventory upon picking them up.

Upon encountering the enemies, the best strategy for the player is to hide in the high grass, spectate the enemy movement and pick the right moment to execute a stealth kill. Sound plays an important role here too, as any sound the players make in the grass will attract some unwanted attention, so it is essential to time your movement with the wind gusts. The players have access to a wide variety of weapons, such as pistols, muskets, tomahawks, and bows. Upon death, the players leave all their items at the place of death and can retrieve them.

Betrayer reviews and comments

German, English below Unglaublich, UNGLAUBLICH ! Die Spannung die dieses Spiel aufbaut hatte ich das letzte mal bei der ersten Demo von Penumbra und später nurnoch bei Slender The 8 Pages. Die Grafik sollte auf jeden Fall auf Schwarz Weiss stehenbleiben. Die Gegner und bestimmte Sachen zum interagieren werden rot angezeigt. Die Umgebungsgeräusche, Wind, alles das macht das Spiel unglaublich spannend. Dazu gibts Shops, Waffen (vorsicht und nicht rumballern) und ein wenig Mystery. Eines meiner Spielehighlights 2014 ! English Unbelievable.... UNBELIEVABLE! The tension builds up the game, I had the last time in the first demo of Penumbra and later only with Slender The 8 pages. The graphics should be definitely stay on black and white. Opponents and certain things to interact are shown in red. The ambient noise, wind, everything makes the game incredibly exciting. Includes shops, weapons (careful and not shooting around) and a little bit mystery. One of my highlights of 2014 games!

Betrayer is an FPS with good, atmospheric Graphics and a few nice Sound effects. Unfortunately, that was also the case. Because otherwise it's a Lesson in Frustration; Far too strong Opponents (and far too fast) who kill you with 2-3 Remote Attacks, which by the way also likes to spawn around the Player, you are usually dead immediately, the non-existent AI does its rest, Sometimes opponents just stand around and wait for Death , sometimes 5 + Enemies come out of Nowhere and mow one around, achja, your own Armament is so ridiculous that you can hardly destroy 3 at a time, no Story except a diffuse Roanoke rabble about a lost Colony where all sorts of strange Things happen (this After all, The Allerhand * yawn *) and large Maps where you can't even draw or write something yourself (and that would be urgently necessary, since each Map has a "Day side" and a "Night Side," i.e. double Searching of each Square Centimeter). On top of that, several crashes and finished is a Game that you just put away after a few Hours of Play and never look at again. Perfect for long winter Nights And if you're too good at it.

Class game By small Price That's a really short Review since I played the Game last Time a few Months ago. Therefore, I can no longer go into Details, but I will change it later. I bought the Game in a Bundle, and therefore cost me about 50 Cents: That was almost theft. The Game has some Weaknesses, but it's easy to see off. In total, even in the Sale €5€ or even €10wouldn't be too much for the Game-It costs exactly €5per without a Discount! If you rusht, you can completely manage the Game in about 10 Hours, Nevertheless: It is worth delaying it to 20 hours, because the Story often offers the Same thing anyway that you are literally forced to chase a Thief or Nonsense with the Bell or the Tomahawk s to make. :) If you can get hold of the Game for under 1 Euro, as I said, that's a Cheekiness. Buy it if you are hoping for a Role-playing Game without a varied Story, but with cool Setting and acceptable Gameplay. It's worth £55! Thank You for Reading and having a nice Session, Mike, a.k.a.
