Ratings and Reviews
The first and second stories were pretty good. They had some bizarre and dark elements that spice up the experience. They both have a very clear moral and keep you engaged. The third story – “The Lost”– was not very good in my opinion. There was nothing too mysterious about the plot, and spending the gems on the first stone door was a huge letdown, as it only unlocked a few more bits of (repetitive) dialogue and connected right back to were the free option was likely headed (with the bear). The characters were also dull, lacking flaw and, character development throughout the story. Watching the ads to get enough tickets to get the chapter over with began feeling like a chore, with each section feeling like an exact copy of the last. If what it takes to enjoy part 3 is the second occurrence of spending diamonds (the translation at the well), it is very discouraging to spend them after the disappointing stone door. Overall the storytelling, message and ending of part 3 felt weak. Part 4, The Triangle, picks up with the intrigue, as it starts off with something pretty inexplicable.
TLDR: Parts 1 and 2 good, part 3 bad, part 4 good.
Great Game, Awful Business Model
I really enjoyed the 20 minutes I was able to play this game. The art is great, the world is engaging, the gameplay is decent, and the dialogue is...ok. The thing is, you need to purchase “tickets” to be able to play, which are expensive and you need to do this every time you die, otherwise you get locked out for an hour before getting a single ticket after watching an ad. You will then immediately die and be right back where you were, not playing. I have never seen such an absurd model in any other game in my last decade of games. If each story were individually priced similar to Life is Strange, with bonus items or content available through micro transactions this would be a 4.5 star game easy. I understand games are expensive to make, and I gladly purchase micro transactions in games where you get additional value for your money such as ES:Blades, but when your business model directly discourages actually playing the game, I’m simply going to do that; not play. As others have mentioned, even if you get the $3.99/month subscription for unlimited tickets, you still need to purchase more expensive items to be able to actually make decisions and progress, again directly discouraging actually playing the game. I had very high hopes for this game, and for a gleaming moment it realized them, before slapping their anti-player business model in my face.
Neat idea...but really better off skipping
The first adventure is really really good if I were rating it off if just that it would be a four or five but the second adventure you lose a bit of immersion in the puzzles by essentially being handed a ‘skip puzzle’ button for puzzles that are probably the most enjoyable part. After the first time you then are asked to buy them. In the second adventure also you are allowed a companion at the beginning but then have to pay to keep them. The third adventure takes any illusion of choice away from you, you can either pay the in game currency for a logical decision or do increasingly stupid things offered for free. The fourth story follows this premise and this is as far as I go it feels like a cheap money grab every decision you make.
That being said the graphics are lovely and the sound effects aren’t half bad.
In as far as the plots go the first has a relatable protagonist struggling with something we all do. The second is a bit more niche but still overall good. The third honestly I think I hated possibly because this is where they lost the illusion of choice but I also found the protagonist rather annoying (you’d be better off skipping the third one entirely). I have not yet finished the fourth but as it stands it’s set up to follow the third.
The controls are a bit clunky but workable.
