A cinematic point and click thriller.

Derived from latin "The pit/abyss" Vorago takes place in a small town off the interstate stumbled upon by a couple under most unfortunate circumstances. After the tragic loss of their daughter, Ira and Jonathan find themselves in a car accident with no direction. When the couple reach the nearest town, a loud warning siren sounds off as a mysterious fog covers the atmosphere.

Yes I love Stephen King's "the Mist". A lot of inspiration from that movie came about the development of the game. And the background artist inspired by "silent hill". So please try to enjoy the game. The bible is a reference to tell this story, and by no means to pose a "hidden" message or threat to the individual player.

Controls:

Lol, is this like the remake of Silent Hill?

Anyway, this game seems great. :D

Good but nothing great

This was really well animated, well structured, the voice acting was spot on, but I had three problems with this game. First, it just seemed like everything that you needed to find was a needle in a haystack type of search. I didn't use the walkthrough but I just felt that things were almost too obscure. I did like that you added a few red herring items to throw us off, though.

The second and most important problem was the plot. I understand the similarities to the mist but I almost felt that you could have left out certain characters and still had a good game. I think that you could have left out the husband and still had the emotional impact that you were looking for. Also, most of the characters fit into the stereotypical sci-fi horror movie tropes. The religious nut, the scientist that goes against the natural order (off screen but still significant), the loner (Rick), and the character that suddenly gets brave with no real provocation (Tark). The great horror movies take these stereotypes and go beyond them instead of embracing them. Simple things do this like having characters talk about their lives or doubts, almost anything. I understand that this is a game and that most people don't have the attention spans for games that challenge our morals and perceptions of various issues, but if you tried opening up the characters, you never know what you might come up with.

The third and final problem is somewhat related to the plot, it had to do with the dialogue between the characters. Despite the voice acting being very well done, the characters sounded like they were always proclaiming something rather than actually talking with another person. You want to have fully fleshed out characters, not talking heads. I really cringed at the dialogue in the latter part of the game because everything everyone said was just so over the top, it took away from the creepy feel of the game.

All that said, you have a pretty good grasp of a suspense/horror game. If you revise this game, you might lose some players because it might be too long/plot heavy, but you may gain even more players who see how much more complex your game has become.

I liked it!

While I'm not a big fan of these games (I can never even get that far in the first place), but I believe this was pretty well done. It was very nice to see that atmosphere being used not to mention the animation and that great voice work.

AWESOME

The best point and click game ever.
I just loved.
Looks like a tribute to a movie called "The Mist" of Stephen King.
Congratulations man this game is the best.

Awful puzzles and a ripoff to boot

*MAJOR SPOILERS*

A bunch of people trapped in a gas station, surrounded by mist and being attacked by flying monsters. A religious zealot that torments and murders one of the survivors? An extremely dark ending? This isn't inspired by The Mist; it is The Mist, albeit with a smaller cast and a slightly different location.

The puzzles were dreadful. Take a pixel-sized can of deodorant from a girl's back pocket (why does a little girl have deodorant?), make a mini-flamethrower and then light some flies on fire, so those flies will attack a cat... and then light the cat on fire so it jumps at a mirror and explodes? If you wanted me to take the game seriously you lost me there. It's okay to have levity in a serious game but don't build a major puzzle around it.

One more thing: the ending. It's okay for movies to have dark endings, and games can have them to if they're clever, but this games ending is neither clever nor satisfying. It's downright emotionally exploitative. Not only that, but you have a block of text at the end that basically tells the player that all of their actions were COMPLETELY POINTLESS, because Jesus is the only one who can come and fix everything. That's just insulting: its like being told that we wasted our time.

I'm usually not this harsh on flash games, but I can't help it because this game just had so much potential. The art style and design is great, and the voice actors are clearly very talented... but a weak story and bad puzzles wreck the game.

I liked your previous games- please stick to making original stuff.

I came across quite a similar review... I guess it just had to be the way it was...

The block of text at the end is somehow a way to wrap up the story because to be frank... it could go on and on and on. Maybe a sequel would defeat the pointless hardships and efforts in the hope that the main character may gain her salvation if that's what you're talking about.

thanks for the honest review dude.
