Apocalipsis is a point and click adventure game with a unique artstyle inspired by 15th century engravings. Harry, for whom the loss of his beloved was the end of his world, has to venture out into strange, unwelcoming lands to get her back. On his journey he will meet fantastical creatures, straight from the minds of medieval artists, and ultimately conquer his own personal demons.
“Apocalipsis takes its cues from an often neglected corner of Western cultural history, remaking fantastical woodcuts into a convincing, amusing and engaging world. Its puzzles, its art and its atmosphere feel authentically medieval, while its story splashes in the dark waters of stoicism.” – POLYGON
“A heady descent into the nightmares of Dürer & Holbein, Apocalipsis invokes 15th century mysticism like nobody's business.” – RAGEQUIT
“A breath of fresh air for a point and click adventure. Or rather, a fresh wave of plague ridden air.“ – The Digital Fix

Oddly charming - 4.75
Will update as I go in, but have been coming to terms with slower controls and falling in love with the brooding ambient music. I love the mechanic of temporarily highlighting points of interest without being too much of a spoiler. Maybe on a harder difficulty you could replace the highlighting objects with clouds in the general area. The one downside is that vexing but eventually amusing social media-inspired shrug when you’re just grasping at straws. But they’re medieval, recycling-friendly straws.
Update: fortunately the game gets very original quickly. I was a snob seeing the first puzzle’s look and simple setup, but if you are looking for a challenge, the puzzles get subtle fast without being annoying. Loved how the next few puzzles flowed together with less noticeable controls. By the time you get to the second ship puzzle it is beautiful and... just wow. I am getting close to solving that one thanks to some marvelous design but am just enjoying the atmosphere.
Unique but Dark
The animation and medieval background make this puzzle game unique. The puzzles are engaging if somewhat easy. I would have given it five stars but I really dislike all the tortured souls that populate the scenes. I also don’t like the mine field I need to escape at the end of the first section. I don’t like speed games and I’m not very good at them. I wish there were a skip button for this aspect.
I do like the theme. The medieval art + history combo is fun and macabre -- total success on that. Challenging, yes. Some sections took time to figure out and that's an A+ for me. However, I had problems with the controls and that was just frustrating. It's ok to have to think, is not ok to be thwarted by inconsistent response of a game to my instructions.
I like this game and to be fair, it could be my error.
*Here is my suggestion to the very creative developers: a bit more precision and faster response time. , I need to be able to flee!
