Do you often think of what is there, beneath the towns and the cities we live in? Sewer systems, bombshelters, scientific objects...
Are you ready to find yourself in a place on the edge of the reality plane you are used to?

That day promised nothing bad. But a usual walk with a girlfriend ended up in runnung for ones lives from bandits, which lead the main characters into strange catacombs, where the usual laws of the universe fail. You will have to pass tough tests and to overcome yourself.

The Agony is a visual novel from the authors of "Sixtieth Kilometer".

The plot movement depends on the player's decisions, each leading to its own consequences.
There are four different endings, based on the choices you make in the first part of the game.

The novelet genre gravitates toward pseudo-scifi rather than unexplicable misticism.

The Agony reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
"The Agony" is a visual novella from domestic razslaves. Passes with all endings in about an hour with small (if during repeated passes not to read a text, and to skip it). After passing as much pride has experienced for our Igroelov-well, who else smokes such a fence grass and zapazit infusion of boiled fly-in? The Plot of Two young people, Oleg and Olga, walking in the evening city, witnesses a gangster showdown. The guys don't find anything smarter than getting into the sewers. But is it a sewer? More like a catacombs under the city. Wandering begins... In One fine (or not very) moment young people find heaps of mutilated corpses, and Olga kidnaps some incomprehensible chmo. Oleg begins to search for his beloved. And then the same grass with the infusion of Muhomin is started. Settlement of people who fell under the ground years ago as a result of explosion on the Supersecret complex for mining of mega-secret mineral, chests with notes, keys to unclear where the door, monsters-eyes, monsters-butchers, green incomprehensible Gas... In General, the classic symptoms of delirium tremens, in the common-"squirrel". Graphics and soundtrack Pictures are quite pleasing to the eye, although I do not pay special attention to them, the main thing-the drug text. Music... Hmm... Was there music? In dangerous or disturbing moments sounds something similar to rock, also we hear different sounds-steps, squashing, crashing. In a couple of moments I repent, shuddered. It's nothing special. The Gameplay is all standard-mouse, mouse and once again mouse. Click on the text, periodically make a choice. From time to time will have to press buttons-Q and E, or W A S D. The Result is a Regular visual novel, not a masterpiece, but not a candid but * but with a pretty nice picture and a completely addict story =). There are 4 endings-good, neutral, bad and true, and all our actions directly affect which of the endings we get in the end. Price without discount-27 rubles, for this money we get a hour's worth of tea with cookies and cards. No Achievements (and sorry). Recommended for fans with delusional plots, as well as Cartocollectors =).

The agony is Visual story that I found very interesting despite the strongly negative ratings I could read on the steam store page. Before I started in history, I had some apprehensions because of the origin of this game... offered in 2 languages only: Russian and an English translation, I had two big fears: Google incomprehensible translation and sented history resembling the title "Spakoyno: back to the USSR 2.0", this was not the case at all and I was pleasantly surprise by this story with choices influencing its progression with several possible endings, this atmosphere that emerges and its endeating characters. I think the majority of negative opinions come from the fact that one can die-and not just a little-in a Visual history and that there are in places a gameplay akin to quick time events. I'm not at all a fan of quick time events, this has been a torment for me in Farheneit Indigo Prophecy.... Here they are much simpler and not bugged Phew, plus their number remains reasonable, I think even though this was poorly seen by some, it was a clumsy way-or not-to add some gameplay to satisfy and involve the "player" so that it does not remain passive by only looking at the story scroll on the screen. We like it or not, it did not bother me, just a little surprise the first time I died because of a bad choice, I even found that it brought a little PEP's. I will not spoiler you all the scenario, but in summary you play Oleg a young student of 21-or 22 years I do not know anymore lol-whose day starts badly, he is late to an appointment with his girlfriend Olga for some reasons and during a ballad in am followed by a little furtive getaway... they will end up at a bad time in the wrong place, from there will flow a strange scenario, supernatural and creepy in the sewers of the city, where one flirts with madness, the ireal and the nightmare... For my part, the story and the realization of this game are rather a success because I stayed immersed in it throughout my progress, the pictures and music of the atmosphere perfectly stick to the theme, and the English was easy to understand (no Google that translated from Word to Word, and an Englishman understandable by all). I liked this little scenario in which I let myself be transported or rather left slipping into hell...
