Precipice of Darkness, Episode One
Precipice of Darkness, Episode One is an action-adventure game series which mostly consists of seek-and-find puzzles.
Precipice of Darkness obtains in a 3D universe, with 2D interstitials and cinematics. The player finds himself in the 1920s suburban neighborhood.
He then designs a character of their choosing. The protagonist's house is destroyed by a giant robot; alongside the smaller robot version attacks. After the tutorial, the player teams up with Tycho Brahe, a scholar of Apocalyptic Studies who also happens to be a detective, and his violent partner Johnathan Gabriel. They are all searching for information about the robot, also known as Fruit Fucker Prime. Battles consist of a real-time combat system with a context-sensitive button which is pressed to lessen injuries or carry out individual attacks.
The player aims to complete small tasks and investigate the neighborhood, gather the required items, collect spare robot parts to transform the weapons and defeat the Silent One - the owner of the Fruit Fuckers.
The game universe is created with accuracy and humor: there is a place called the Shithole, an ancient book that has no text but can be interpreted by a mime, different dialogues, and actions that let the player relax and have fun while completing the tasks.
