Boardgames are fun!

The adventure game in the point-and-click genre from the German studio Daedalic Entertainment. It was highly appreciated by the players precisely because of the adventure games and quests. The game itself is a quest based on the very popular in Germany table game with the same name - The Dark Eye.

The story

In The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, player have to look at the world through the eyes of a young man named Geron. Geron is a hunter, and also a very unlucky young man. But this is not a natural evil rock, but someone carefully planned situation. Being the object of ridicule of the whole town, the boy does simply not despair, but, on the contrary, tries to overcome circumstances by the only possible weapon for this - smartness. And he unwittingly becomes part of a swirl of events.

Key features

In the classic for the genre manner (point the cursor, click on the button and something will happen or not) the player will have to plunge into the world that is perfectly worked, thanks to the extensive game universe. The plot is twisted so that you do not even need to be a quest lover in order to want to understand what will happen next - on the next screen. The game is designed in such a way that it will, on the one hand, win the confidence of newcomers, allowing them to retain them thanks to a system of tips, and on the other - not to frighten regulars of the genre with their simplicity. And of course - the balance between the comic and the seriousness of the events taking place will allow the player to go into the plot and feel the atmosphere.

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav reviews and comments

Translated by

Satinav'S Chains A dramatic Adventure with Fairies, Magic, Explorers and rough Mores, in which Geron From Andergast Nuri brings In from the Fairies Realm. With very pleasant Portions of: Dialogues and also funny Texts and Actions, without constant Running to create Tasks and solve Puzzles, Geron plays himself as he is. But luckily Geron doesn't play himself, like a blindfol-dete/r performer, where you have to constantly search for and read unimaginable Solutions, often gives Hints and comments and gets often enough help and Support from Nuri. Really beautifully drawn Environments, interesting Characters and moving Cutscenes, with logical and also a few very complicated Puzzles where more Possibilities, more Hints and more Comments Geron have lacked.

I've never played a Point & Click Game properly. Is Probably because I'm very bad at it. It took me just over 12 Hours with the Help of the Internet to solve the Puzzles. The Drawings are beautifully made and you act quite simply through the Game. As I said, the Puzzles were partly unsolvable for me without the Help of the Internet. Which made the Game quite difficult for me. I hope by playing the same Kind you get better and so you have more Head for some Ideas. You also like to forget (at least me) that the Characters could use Spells That you can use to get closer to the Solution. The Story behind it I thought was well implemented. By the Way, one was guided through the Game by a Speaker and small Film Sequences. But What only took place between the next Chapters. It is completely Subtitled And is therefore playable even for the endless. Even though I myself have had a very hard time getting it all through, I would still recommend this Game. I like that you have to make an effort at times and don't always get everything put in front of your Feet.

I've been hesitant for a long time to get back to grips with a Point ' n ' click adventure. As too tedious Were the classics from my Childhood like Day Of The Tentacles etc in my Memory. So I have to confess this time: At three (very short) I have been helped, since after a long click I had not found where it goes on. For me, the Game is characterized more by surprising combination/places to look for than by complex puzzles. But maybe that has to be the case with this Type of Game. Still, I had my Joy in the Game and the nicely told Story. In Summary: (+) Beautiful Look (+) good Dialogues (+) sensible action (The Game unfortunately uses and benefits little from the Black-eye world in my View. Except for the Naming of the Gods and occasional Phrases ("Black Furs" for Orcs), not much has unfortunately spilled over from the Role-playing games. On the other Hand, the Reference to The Role-playing World could deter potential Players without that Background. In retrospect, however, there is no Reason for This.) (-) short Game time (but fair again at the current Price) (-) From my Point of view Puzzles too simple, but search Game too much in the Foreground.
