Veritas is a game of mystery and discovery from Glitch Games, creators of the Forever Lost trilogy, that poses the question; what is truth, and does it even matter?
Having volunteered to take part in a study conducted by Veritas Industries, you now find yourself waking up in a small room with no memory of what happened the day before.
The last thing you remember is signing on the dotted line and following some nice people wearing white coats, but they couldn’t have been lying to you could they? They were doctors for goodness sake...
In this narrative puzzle game, you'll:
* Explore a dark and foreboding world full of lies and mysteries. You'll need to explore the entire facility to work out what happened and how you can escape.
* Take photos of everything you find using the Glitch Camera. Be they posters, clues, walls, or disturbing blood stains - and use them later to help solve puzzles and piece together the mystery.
* Solve lots of puzzles, ranging from inventory based item puzzles all the way to pun-based conundrums. All intricately designed to move the story along, you'll find no pointless filler here - just regular purpose made filler.
* Be entranced by the beautiful soundtrack composed by Richard J. Moir. It's so good you won't mind listening to it, on repeat, forever, while you're trapped.
Use the Glitch Camera to:
* Take photos of everything you find. Be they posters, clues, walls, or disturbing blood stains.
* Write notes on them like a real detective. Use less paper, kill fewer trees, save the planet!
* Use your notes to solve puzzles. Pop multiple photos out so that you can look at them at the same time.
* Misc fixes.

Best one yet?
I’ve been a fan of Glitch Games for years. This might be the best one yet, and that is saying something considering the Forever Lost series. The puzzles are sufficiently challenging without being totally obscure; there is a logic behind solutions, with only a few instances where you feel guessing is the only way. The hint system is nicely done. It doesn’t give away the game if you need just a little boost, and you can always delve deeper into the hint if you are completely lost.
The atmosphere is incredible. Immersive graphics, appropriately moody music, and a storyline that just won’t quit. I mean that literally; there are computer terminals that provide depth to the back story that is an easy rabbit hole to fall down if you aren’t careful.
I had to go back and replay the ending a couple of times to make sure the game didn’t “glitch” and skip to the ending. It was that abrupt an ending, which was disconcerting. My only other quibble is photos aren’t stored in the order you take them, so if you have lots of pics (which you will, guaranteed) you need to search through them to find what you are looking for. And if you take multiple pictures of a single view (which you will, guaranteed) they are dispersed throughout your collection and more difficult to find.
Minor complaints though, for a truly outstanding game. I am already impatiently awaiting the sequel.
I loved 98% of it
This is a super game and I recommend it with very minor quibbles.
The art and atmosphere are superb. It was not a short game which was great because I use them to lull myself to sleep. Visually it’s stunning and puzzle wise, it’s challenging.
The puzzles are inventive and wide ranging but solutions can occasionally be pretty obscure.
The polygraph results were barely visible on my retina screen and I would have never gotten that part of that puzzle.
The red screen monitor/robot gave me no indication I could interact with the screen at all. I found out by accident.
The X-ray didn’t appear to be interactive until at least the 10th time I placed it and accidentally dragged a finger across the image.
The transition time from screen to screen is looooong. Far too much time is spent transitioning from area to area or within a scene.
The electrical short sound and one or two other sounds sometimes persist after leaving the area and when using headphones, you will go completely mad hearing them.
The beginning of a chapter came out of nowhere and some chapters seem extremely short while others are long.
These are minor quibbles and I was amazed to hear back from the game maker when I had an issue. He literally emailed me 36 hours after I sent in my message. Considering it’s a two person office, that amazing.
All in all, I’ll definitely buy their next game. This one was great.
I have been pretty impatient with the offerings of so called 'adventure games' on the App Store these days. Once in a long while a really good one comes along and this is one of them. I have been playing for hours and I’m on chapter 4 (I don’t use hints so it sometimes takes awhile for me to figure something out). In no case so far has a challenge been unreasonable. Difficult maybe, but logical and reasonable. The graphics are simple while still offering a nice feel for atmosphere. There is a camera which I am using a lot of. I would deduct a quarter of a star because finding a camera shot in the album is cumbersome. Why don’t the photos stay in the order I take them? Even after I take a photo I have to rummage through the album to find out where it went. In the grand scheme, this is a minor annoyance. I am totally enjoying this one.
