Cloud Chamber reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Cloud Chamber is an Alternate reality Game (ARG) where Players on a social Network, called Crowdspace, have to educate together what a mysterious Signal from space and the Death of one of the Protagonists is all about. The Main Gameplay here is the Discussion with other Players after Viewing different Snippets of film and Documents draped within the Network in different 3D rooms. So you float from one Hub of each landscape to the next, enjoying the atmospheric Electric Music, watching the Clip or document and Capturing its Theories in Posts attached to the Hub. The Clips range from Videos of the main Story around the fictional Petersen Institute, to actual European Space Agency Recordings, E-Mails, diary entries, blog entries, To Blueprints and Drawings. The acting Performance within the Videos of the Main Story goes perfectly fine and comes from some notable Players such as Gethin Anthony aka Renly Baratheon from Game of Thrones and the Dane Known From Casino Royale and Melancholia Jesper Christensen. The Story told by Cloud Chamber is attributable to the hard Sci-fi and thus requires the Player To Read into actual physical Topics. The Fact that not all Questions are answered at the End of the action is due to the nature of the Matter, but also because this is only The first Season and is supposed to leave room for your own Thoughts. In any Case, however, the End is satisfactory, as far as one has managed to unlock the closed Hubs. This happens because reddical-style Posts can be up-or downvoted. So What next comes just who is really Worrying and not posting the Obvious. The such system, of course, is only as good as its Players is is clear. So you wait a few Days until likes have been distributed again and have to endure one or the other Chatter. However, The Community always remains exemplary friendly and well interested. Just like the Developers who make an effort here on Steam to answer any Questions and accept suggestions For improvement with a Smile. There are still some Little Things to improve, especially Comfort functions, but nothing that would be detrimental To the Experience. So I can recommend Cloud Chamber as one of the most intense Experiences of recent Years, but only for Players who are willing to discuss and can contribute to serious Interest. Casual Players, Mouth Laves or People who can't do anything with Hard-Sci-Fi dilute the Life of the Player only for others and probably don't have Fun themselves either. A Note at the End: Cloud Chamber is purely in English. German Subtitles are still missing, Subposts in something other than English do not exist. In addition, it is in the Nature Of a "Forum game" that you can hardly play on the Living Room TV. Texts are simply too small and a Keyboard is absolutely needed.
