The Mooseman reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
I have been Lucky to have something recently on such "educational-ethnic" toys. First came across a charming "Never Alone", humour about the life of Eskimos Inuit, and now the domestic developers pleased with the game dedicated to the myths of our northern peoples who lived on the territory of the Perm region more than a thousand years ago. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1715005102 And I will say at once: the journey of the Man turned out... Memorable. Creative and Creative page of the Curator 👉🏼 YroMIR ReviewS 👈🏼 is waiting for you. Sign up! Support the quality of Steam. Have a Nice acquaintance! The Plot So, our journey begins a long time ago, at the gate of the Lower world, where the lone wanderer goes in search of the sun under the earth. The Path is difficult, the way uneasy-insidious spirits do not asleep, the gods do not sleep, and mask in the form of a moose head allows you to look beyond the edge of the world... But what's in the dark? So Get ready: You have to go down to the land of the dead and rise above the clouds, run from the zombies and deal with the evil Witch, hide from the giant pike and fly on the back of the giant Eagle (who said "Gandalf"?), in order to fulfill his duty to Gods and people... Or Maybe just pave the way for the next hero? Gameplay In fact, in front of us-a typical 2D-walker, with a minimum of active keys: Our protégé can only walk to the right-left, shoot and put on the mask, Kindle and extinguish the magic light. No weapons to him is not put (only passive protection, which appears closer to the middle of history), so the enemies will have to deal with the use of pressure plates, assistance from the side... Well, either a strategic retreat to the nearest ravine. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1715005170 during The passage to Kindle idols (it is also, in addition, local sein-points), revealing local myths, as well as collect collectible items-artifacts, painted with Real historical artifacts exhibited in perm museums (each of them is a short description). Unlike idols, artifacts have no role in the gameplay, besides-collecting-Manchkinskaya, do not play, but still recommend for a full immersion to collect them all: it is not so difficult. At the same time I would like to note that the game has a lot of "special points", which, unfortunately, are not always obvious. For example, soon after the beginning we are offered to make some sequence of motions, in order to get the next artifact: the directions in which look the masks of brothers of our protégé, but no little-malski obvious hint on it. No, so either the player gets Arhivnimatelnyj, or you have to ask for help to numerous reviews. Graphics, music and atmosphere But with the atmosphere in the game everything in full-in the fullest-order. The Developers have tried even in small things to convey the harsh northern nature and the way it was seen by people who once created all these idols, pendants and buckles with images of mythical creatures, animals and people. Graphics, of course, minimalist, but it has its own charm, but unusual folk music or literary inserts between the heads, read in the language of these people-above all praise. As you pass the game, you fully realize that for these people the forest was the only familiar world, where the Bears lived, guardians of the Underworld, where the Divine Moose wandered, descendants of the first god of the Earth, where the mighty Eagles-Riders of the Storm, passing souls in The Upper world. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1715005140 And Let us, modern people, all this seems strange or even wild-well, there are similar games to open the windows to the unknown worlds, to meet familiar strangers, with whom we live on the same land, but which have not yet learned to recognize in person. In Total, This is a very, very, very worthy game. It is, of course, not for everyone-someone will call it a "simulator walk", others bored by the slowness of the narrative, while others are more "action"-but personally, I felt a sincere pride for our patriots that have managed to expand in such an unusual way My horizons and acquaint with the wild charm of the Perm land, where the divine Duck Laid off the egg from which it was hatched-god-the father of spirits and people, who created all three worlds and the beginning of our Universe... Overall Rating: I Highly recommend "Humanear" to pass: This is one of the few games that allow you to get acquainted with the unknown, learn something new and get a sincere pleasure from it. Bravo, dear developers. From a pure Heart – Bravo!

Well, I want to believe that these are the real myths, but how can I know that as a central elegiac. The stencil-like graphics nothing new, I think only the black and white gray is always difficult to see. With time it gets boring, just so it does not really happen much, well. To pass the time, there are better games.

Potty and beautiful game both by the gameplay and graphics. Play from the beginning to the end without much difficulty, we let ourselves be carried away by the legend and the narrative voice by dreams. I despaired not to find a game as beautiful as Nishan of Next Studio, which puts in scene another tribal cosmogonic mythology but finally Mooseman has tench this lack. Thank you all team for the creation of this little gems.

I downloaded it without expectations, only because of its artistic style and I was very surprised at how little I played. The atmosphere, especially the music with the use of headphones is a joy, it really makes you immerse yourself in the story.   On the other hand, I also appreciate the option of multiple languages ​​when playing and the many real references of myths and legends. My most sincere congratulations to the creators of this wonder and I hope we see more games of this quality.

This exciting game is discovering a culture that few people know in France. Once we understand how the game works, the challenges follow each other without being alike, we do not feel weary. I love to unlock pages of myths and art reproductions as the game progresses. Another highlight is the scenario, which uses myths intelligently. Finally, the decorations details (especially when the character has his head dlan) and traditional music create a magical atmosphere. A perfect example of a game that allows you to learn while having fun.

Especially created and implemented with a lot of love !! However, I do not give the five stars for the wonderful graphics, the atmospheric music or the profound story, no, the 5 receives the game from me for MODELY BUSINESS MODEL! In my day we called that still shareware ... you tested a free audition / level etc. and if you liked the game you could buy it! I love this system !!! When I read the word pay-to-win or in-app purchases for other games / apps, I try to avoid them! Therefore this is an ABSOLUTE RECOMMENDATION !!!!! Please many more titles and especially developers / studios take this way !!!!!
