Mu Complex reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Note: this game was offered to me by its developer, without any special expectation or compensation. This recommendation is a personal initiative INBAR with total freedom in my writings and my feelings. If I were to position you the kind of Mu complex using a talking reference for all, I would be well embarrassed... because Mu complex is one of those games with an astonishing and unique concept that cannot find any approximation in its mechanics with another existing video game. Which has further stirred my curiosity. You start the game with a Linux command console, with the following text: "Mu complex is a governmental company. You have to connect on your Mu account, please login to proceed. " Then.... That's all. You are now facing this command console, alone, without any additional help. So you have to use the various Linux commands (which actually correspond to the commands of the famous operating system) to get you out of this first obstacle. So your reflex is to type "help" to access the commands you can use, as well as their function. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=560300179 for this first challenge (which you can rather consider as a tutorial), you will find that the commands are basically all primary. After a quick glance at the controls allowed at this stage, the solution emerges from itself. But once this first step is over, no more laughs, the game can finally start. The it Assistant lets you know that you have not logged in for decades... bizarre for a government agency and to awaken our curiosity and attention. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=560300234 this time, the solution seems no longer so apparent and therefore asks to fumble with the commands granted to clear a track start... I stop there regarding the photos and the progress of the game. My goal is not all you spoiler and spoil you the guiding thread of history:)! Let's talk about this famous guiding thread... as you progress, you will learn more and more about the mysterious history of the Agency Mu complex and its secrets with the help of multiple documents (mails, photos...). It will be very difficult to pick up this narration and you will surely try to finish the story of a milking. The orders, meanwhile, diversify and complement each other, opening wider possibilities and a growing difficulty, which will be felt at each level in order to offer you an increasingly full-bodied challenge and a greater satisfaction to each success, which will make you grow your hacker soul. The challenges evolve themselves-also and do not look alike, asking you, for example, to take control of other computers on the network or even to hack a security camera, allowing to see something other than this unique control console austere. The game is separated into 3 episodes, two of which are already available. The third one will arrive a little later in a form still unknown (DLC? Free update?). Episode 1 will take you about 1h30 to finish and episode 2, meanwhile, would require 3-4H (it all depends on your difficulties facing some puzzles). No, decidedly, I look good, I do not see any games comparable to MU complex, which offers an experience so far unique, immersive and enjoyable that I advise very strongly.
