Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones review
by remitoid

I really wanted to like this game, but it just became too frustrating to play. I managed to progress through around 4/5 of the main quest, while completing some of the side quests.

The current state is very buggy and there are some design choices that I do not understand. The main thing for this game is the art, music, dialogue and some interesting side quests. When the game gets things right, it feels like an interesting lovecraftian adventure. When it doesn't, it feels like a chore to play. Mostly this is due to the lack of a manual or a tutorial, or simply repetitive combat.

If the game is updated in the future, I might still revisit it at some point. Currently I cannot really give a recommendation.
