About

Hector Episode 1, subtitled We Negotiate With Terrorists, is the first chapter of a three-part episodic quest by Straandlooper. You play as Hector, a police officer, permanently drunk and doesn’t fit the description of a “good cop”. However, this time the police needs Hector’s help because only he can calm down a very nervous sniper.

The goal of the game is to hold a successful negotiation with a terrorist who keeps hostages and kills passers-by. The story is based on a series of quests. There aren’t many environmental puzzles while some decisions are not quite clear; instead, the game focuses on dialogues. Choosing the right lines can lead you to solving multiple issues and simplify your way to the goal.

The game is created in 2D cartoonish style but it’s restricted for kids. Hector is full of dirty humor and controversial situations. This tone is kept in other two episodes subtitled Senseless Acts of Justice and Beyond Reasonable Doom.

Hector: Episode 1 reviews and comments

Entirely in VO and using literary English only very rarely, I confess that I did not understand everything! Most of the dialogues being subtitled (in English) helps a little but frankly not always. If the "tongue" side does not stop you should know that it is not a game to let in all hands seen its side... trashy, it is moreover what participates very much in his interest. The fact of having to do with the English police is also a little more than I enjoyed. Here we have a classic adventure game with dialogues and objects to find and combine/use in the right way, situations being often very strange, some solutions will also be very... Special. I took 3-4 hours to do this episode by turning a little at a time. The graphics are pleasant, close to the BD (but much more fine than a puzzle Agent). To advise especially for this subversive side. I will test the other 2 episodes because only one is too short. To be taken at A low price. The "tell tale" bundle that understands it is often promoted during the sale.

Hector is a game that consists of a series of episodes about a fat detective, drunk, party, impolite, lazy and corrupt. With This base, we know that it is not going to be a most conventional graphic adventure. With a black humor, but not too upraised, Hector is a fun adventure and frustrating moments (like any graphic adventure). To Avoid such frustration, we have a support system built into the game that is very good: we can ask for clues on how to achieve the goals or directly ask for the solutions (although the latter takes away the grace of the adventure, right?). This is really useful when you get stuck in your progress and do not know what to do, you do not have to leave the game to read a guide. Going specifically to episode 1, which this note treats, we met Hector waking up from a party locked in the police cell and no Pants (posta). Our first goal will be to get out of the cell and that will force us to some nasty things (I don't want to spoilear). Once outside, they will call us for a case, but to attend we will have to get two things: that the police patrol starts (and is made ball) and get some trousers (again, Posta, or you can not go to a crime scene in underwear che!). To get over this first part we will need To use and combine items, and interact with various characters. Everything in the style of the classic graphic Adventures of the Nineties. Once we get to the scene of the crime, which is a hostage-taking, the kidnapper (we do not know who he is) asks us for a list of fairly absurd demands, among which is to bankrupt the local business of pornography (of which Hector is client , obviously). In Order To complete the demands we will be able to visit different places of the city where we find items and new characters with whom to interact. If We succeed (using the AIDS through, because some tasks get complicated) We will finish episode 1 and move on to Episode 2 (which will have its own review). Anyway, Hector is a funny and fun graphic adventure, which will definitely like every fan of the genre. That Yes, on Steam only gets in English, so you have to master the language.
