Reviews


Plenty of people have discussed your execution with you - some polite, some less so, so I'm going to avoid telling you what you already know, and instead focus on a critique of the story.

While your story drew influence from and retained much of the eerie atmosphere and tension present in movies such as Sunshine, it lacked much of the motivation. There's a line between something that's mysterious and something that is just plain unexplained, and unfortunately, this story fell on the latter side of said line. There were simply too many blanks for me to continue to take it entirely seriously. Instead of being engrossed an creeped out, I found myself continually asking 'wait, what?'

A mystery is a framework of facts creating the outline of one giant unknown. It's mysterious precisely because we know something about it, if not much. In this case, there was no such framework - merely a nebulous mass of disconnected facts and events. That sort of mass can work if, by the end, the reader (or player) has enough information to draw one of any number of conclusions, but in your story, there was simply not enough similar data. Let me show you what I mean.

At the start, John is lonely, but stable, but he suddenly begins to see this mysterious dead astronaut and a number of accompanying visions that are clearly hallucinatory. The first conclusion one might draw is that John was going mad from the isolation, but the sudden onset and severity of the hallucinations seems to disprove that. So, is it a disease? Is it some kind of outside force manipulating his mind? Is the reality around him actually breaking? You can see there are many possible conclusions here, but instead of providing facts that support one or more of them, the story simply stops providing new information and returns to what is already known: John is seeing things. And the moment that happens, the mystery is lost. The illusion of mystery is sustained by the game's masterful audioscape (bravo on that note) but the heart is gone.

This game exhibits a lot of merit and a lot of promise, hence the four out of five stars, but in future projects, I hope you heed the advice given to you by myself and others. You have the beginnings of something truly great here, and with a little work, you may be able to reach its full potential.


People find this review helpful!

was this in ANY way inspired by a game called Echo Night Beyond?
no the storyline is way different but it somewhat feels the same cuz its on the moon and there are ghosts there
anyway it was a nice story not trully a game for me but it was a good story with good sound effects and consistent linear playthrough anyway i found this one enjoyable when, to be really honest here, i only play your games for the medals cuz they are either too cheesy or too bad but this one was actually somewhat good it wasn't a great game but more enjoyable then pico musical experience or lonlyness even robotic heart i didn't enjoy that much but this one got me i don't know what
maybe the ghost that i see in the mirror liked it too...


EventHorizon responds:

I've never played the game Echo Night Beyond so I was not inspired by that game, however thanks for your great review! :)


Enticing plot, good graphics, great atmosphere, good music, overall a good game. My only complaint was the movement, it was too slow ( i know you're trying to make it more realistic but you forgot that astronauts hop or jump on the moon to move faster).

Spoiler:
Here are the codes to the secret room:
Life: 12cly90pov2
Moon: 274091
Eagle: 0
Rabbit: 8
Tictac 12 99 70 51 59 12 77 0a

Took me a while to figure them out.

I liked this game a lot. Spooky atmosphere, questions left unanswered in just the right way, and good sound design all helped. I got a bit of a chill playing this game.

However, I would suggest making it possible to move dialogue with the space bar. Switching between the mouse and the space bar was a little inefficient. Alternatively, you could rig it so that WASD keys would work as well as the directional pad, but I'm no programmer; I don't know which would be simpler.

Also, increasing the walk speed of the astronauts a little would be nice!


EventHorizon responds:

Thanks for your great review and for your advice, I appreciate it!


Creepy, fun and with a nice movie/story feel to it! I just don't like that movement is a bit slow... But I guess you are on the moon so it feels more believable :D


EventHorizon responds:

Exact, the slow movement is to make the game more realistic, it is difficult to walk on the moon ;)
