N.E.R.O.: Nothing Ever Remains Obscure reviews and comments

The Game tells a sad and touching Story. It is very beautifully designed and you are literally whisked away to another World. I really liked the Look, the many Details to discover and follow the Story. The Puzzles are sometimes quite simple, but a few are there, which give a real Headache. Especially the Picture Puzzles are very tricky. All in all, I can recommend the Game to anyone who wants to be whisckled away to another World for an afternoon or evening and want to crack a few more Puzzles. Because one thing has to be taken into account, the Main Story is played through in about 2 to 3 Hours.

Beautiful Walking Simulator with Puzzles and a nice Atmosphere + great Design + class Soundtrack + Story (takes place almost only in the Form of Lyrics. Not everyone likes, but I already) The Atmosphere remains included. + Puzzles are easily doable + collectable (P.S after finishing the Story, you can also go back to the individual Chapters and make the remaining puzzles and search for Collectable pieces. So don't make everything from the front, it was all saved!) + Playing Time just right, took about 3 Hours, but also collected everything. By running and making only the main Puzzles, can last even 1 Hour + I had no technical Problems-Full Price of €14.99. I bought it on Offer for £1.49 and am fully satisfied

First Of all: The Game gets from me 6/10-for me (still) a positive Review. A great Game, a beautiful Story and a great Environment. The Puzzles are always quite fixed, but cute Tasks that have been beautifully introduced. The small "Picture parts" that you can collect are well distributed, so that you can also explore everything and be "rewarded" with such a Part. However, the "Light" (rather a luminous Mass) that is broadcast by about everything in this Game is really grotty. It is sometimes very exhausting to recognize something. :/ I only played the Game in the Evening, which was much better and more bearable. My Conclusion: If you want to play the Game, your Claim to the Graphics shouldn't be too high, you should definitely play it in darker rooms (or really evening) and best Buy it in the Sale!

This Game captivates not only with its incredible and captivating Visual Power, reminiscent of the Planet Pandora from Avatar, but also with its very own atmospheric Gameplay. The Soundtrack harmoniously and fittingly underscores the Scenario. I cannot confirm the often cited negative Reviews about the "Simplicity" of the Puzzles. -Of course, the Puzzles are not the Most Challengers, as it is not demanding to Solve Puzzles. It is a "Visual Novel" that means playing a Story and should be guided by this Without being negatively held up by failure at Puzzles. The Focus is on Experiencing a wonderful Story and The Feelings and Impressions that accompany you during it. I hope that many more of this Type Of game will appear on the Market and I am already looking forward to the next Work of these game developers!
