评测

“A New Beginning gives an amazing impression. It's exciting, smart and persistent. The graphics are a genuine eye-catcher and both protagonists grow into complex personalities the player can easily relate to, even grow fond of.”
90/100 – http://www.adventurecorner.de/reviews/228/a-new-beginning

“The dialogues, carrying a serious yet sometimes witty tone are one of the game's major strong points. They give both likeable protagonists depth and personality. The writers have paid attention to even the most delicate details.”
84/100 – Gamestar

“Blending strongly-defined characters into a stunning and memorable backdrop, A New Beginning is an "eco-thriller" that is not to be missed.”
80/100 – Adventure Gamers

不错的科幻背景的解密游戏。
游戏内的谜题需要一定的逻辑思考(好难)。
多种语言和配音,很贴心(没有中文)。



玩完后决定修改一下评测。
这游戏不玩完根本不会知道有多棒,剧情真是绝了。大爱。
再次谴责解密的难度(虽然可以直接跳过)。
可以得一个8/10

A New Begining—Final Cut
《新的开始导演剪辑版》
所谓新的开始,指的是给人类一个新的开始。
故事讲述的是在某年开始,由于资源枯竭,人类开始广泛使用一种超高效的核能源,但好景不长,2050年位于南美热带雨林的电站发生了爆炸,爆炸的核云雾毁掉了雨林,造成了全球气候异常,随后环境开始了逐年恶化,到2500年,人类最后位于地下的避难所也即将失效,人类站在了灭绝的边缘。
此时,科学家提出了孤注一掷的办法,派遣一支队伍回到过去2050年,阻止核电站爆炸,并说服当时的人们,改造或放弃使用这种技术。然而到了目的地才发现科学家们提供的年份有误,2050年不是爆炸发生的年份,此时地球已经成了炼狱多时,突击队死伤惨重,任务失败,队员放弃任务自行逃生。仅存下来的无线电联络员也就是女主角Fay和队长Salvador找到了真正的事故日期,决定穿越时空去做最后一次努力。而Fay在2050年发现,他们所用的穿梭时空的能量来源的一种提供能量藻类是曾经一位叫Bent的科学家毕生研究的清洁能源,但由于投入研发成本太高又迟迟拿不出有效成果,这个项目被终止,世界政府采用了另一位科学家的核能源站方案,之后不久能源站就发生了爆炸。而Bent正活在他们要前往的年代。
于是Fay和Salvador产生了分歧,Fay认为去帮助Bent让世界承认他,全力投入开发能源藻类,就相当于阻止了核能源站上线,而Salvador认为风险太大,必须要去阻止核爆。
现代,Bent博士由于毕生精力投在藻类研究上,家庭关系支离破碎,老来身体极度糟糕,在医生的强制下,他退休了,准备在林中放下一切,安享晚年。此时,Fay找到了他,希望他能重新开始研究,赐予人类一个新的开始。而随着二人走到一起,逐渐揭开的是一个关于科学与环境、理想主义和实用主义、短期与长期道德的故事。
这个游戏虽然是Daedalic同一公司作品,画面同样是非常漂亮的手绘风格,并且叙事采用了漫画式分格,但整体色彩偏淡,不像《Deponia》系列那么华丽,也不像《Chain of Satinav》那样包含童话仙境色彩,那是因为这个游戏更偏向写实风格,所以色调没有那么艳丽,其中的人物都是标准身材比例,各个角色的容貌也极为普通,更像是寥寥凡人。另一方面,整个色调也更符合冷酷、真实世界的感觉,这也是作为一个科幻题材作品的需要。
正因为风格没有之前那么讨好(角色长得路人没吸引力也是原因之一),我很长时间都没有碰这个游戏,而且游戏的操作也有点不友好,进行操作要额外点一次鼠标右键,所以我曾经玩了序章就放弃了。
但第二次玩,发现这游戏果然和Daedalic的作品一个节奏:序章平淡,第二章开始忽然就抓紧了玩家。我就是这么被抓住的,觉得剧情节奏要比之前紧张,因为故事就是危急时刻么,所以从第二章开始,就没有什么轻松惬意的剧情,而是一直在紧张和危机感中度过,一直在应对危机,步步扣人心弦,通关下来觉得感觉很好。
在国外网站的评论中,我看很多人诟病配音,说英文配音极烂,所以建议有条件的朋友,可以考虑德语、俄语和波兰语配音。其实这个游戏倒是很像德国人的风格,大多数人都是在匆匆做事,没有什么言笑的场面,用心讲故事,不刷人物存在感。

A New Beginning tries to share a positive message about climate change, our future, and our resistance to change, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The game is not terrible: it has its good points, and if you've ever wanted to play a dimwitted token female with a seemingly quite severe case of scoliosis who wears a sweater that covers only her boobs, then this definitely is your game.

Pros:
+Good message
+The art is quite nice
+The ruined future setting that occurs near the start of the game is very compelling
+The support team answered my emails quickly and were very helpful when I encountered a game-breaking bug

Cons:
-The English voice acting is atrocious. If you want to play the game, set the sound the German with English subtitles - the German voice acting isn't too bad.
-The English translation is not very good. There are a lot of grammatical errors and problems with colloquialisms that really should have been caught by a native English speaking proofreader before the game was published.
-There are a lot of bugs. Mainly I encountered translation bugs: various items popping up in Russian or Spanish. I also found a game-breaking bug, however, which required a replacement save file from the support team to get past.
-Everyone moves so slowly that I found myself screaming at the monitor a few times. Quickly, we must hit that switch before the facility explodes! Now, let me just take a leisurely stroll across the room. Wouldn't want to work up a sweat.
-The game is extremely resource-heavy, and I can't figure out why. My computer heats up while running this game as much as it does while playing a modern shooter.
-Many of the puzzles are absurd. Several of them require knowledge that the average person just wouldn't have. I needed a walkthrough to get through most of it, and many times I realized I would never in a million years have thought to try the thing that ended up being necessary. There's also a fair amount of pixel-hunting for tiny items that blend in.
-Between the slow movement speed of the characters and the seemingly never-ending cutscenes and dialog, by the time I was 1/3 of the way through the game I just wanted it to end.
-The ending isn't nearly as clever as it's trying to be, and felt rather anti-climactic after all those hours of listening to people talk and watching them crawl across the screen to the sound of suspenseful music.

If you can get the game cheap, enjoy ridiculous puzzles, and have a lot of patience for slow movement and long cutscenes, then feel free to give this one a try. If you're used a faster pace or just want something you feel you can solve without a walkthrough, I'd pass this one over.

It's a neat game that I would say. The message that game tries to convey is pretty great and so far this is one of the point and click adventure with a different genre - "eco triller". Let's take a look at the pros and cons of the game and my verdict

Pros
1. I really love the comic book style , it reminds me of XIII . Superb , something which was not done in this genre
2. The game's humour is great as pointed out by someone in the review , you'll have some good laughs every now and then
3. The length of game is long , it took me about 12 hours to complete it. It's not short , there are lots of things to explore
4. The ending is superb
5. Good price point (buy it during sales as it is worth it)
6. The ability to skip puzzles

Now there are some serious flaws in this game as well which sort of ruins the whole gameplay experience

Cons
1. Could not understand some puzzles at all . Some of it I was totally lost. It was nice to have the skip button but I am a kind of person that wants to finish puzzle.

2. The whle 4:3 resolution , it is very bad if you have a huge screen , this makes it annoying finding things. I did not know about the space bar feature to reveal all the clickable items , I had a hard time finding some of the pixels. I am guessing this is because of the hand-drawn graphics and such

3. Spelling errors and gramamatical errors - There is a lot of the game. Some of the options are in another language such as in Russian or Greek. I do hope that the developers did put some effort at least in ensuring that these are ironed out. English is not my primary language but even I could see the errors that they make.

4. Subpar voice acting , I felt the voice actors lacked of emotion especially in certain parts/events of the game. They just sounded bland , lacked of soul and depth

Verdict
Just grab this game if it goes on sale , and if you are an adventure fan who is into a totally new genre of story (not the typical ones you woul expect !). Despite the drawbacks , it is still a good game to play. You'll have to give credits to the details esepcially the backdrops and sch

So....this is a game I really wish I could enjoy. Conceptually, it is worth consideration even though the story is fairly cliche (world is mostly destroyed by nuclear disaster and the remnants of humanity travel back in time to try and stop it from happening). Outside of the obvious issues that the topic of time travel always carry with it (poorly thought out ramifications to actions being foremost on that list), the real issue with this game is that, since the sotry is so cliche, it really needs strong gameplay and voice acting to make it worth slogging though. The puzzles are in fact decent. Nothing too mind bending, but on the low end of Daedalic par for the course. The voice acting, however, is simply atrocious. If you are going to spend 10 or so hours with an adventure game, and the story is sub par, the voice acting better be on point. It isnt in this game, and as much as the completionist in me wants to retire this game under the "finished games" folder in my library, I cant bring myself to listen to the actors anymore.
IDK if you will enjoy the game, but me personally, it goes into the never finish files.

第一次玩美系AVG游戏。结果把我吓得不轻。一个下午才从序章玩到了第三章,大概才到剧情的1/3。这还是在看攻略的情况下。

这游戏的剧情还算勉强。只不过那个解谜啊,太TM变态了。我只能感叹一句,我TM连技术宅的毛都不是。

这游戏不仅要求玩家具有明锐的观察力以及物理学、化学、工程学的相关知识(幸亏要求都比较“浅显”——相对而言的,主要是运用),还要求玩家把他们综合运用。相比较而言,“全英文”这点已经算不上什么了。

要不是网上有攻略,我都不知道能不能过序章。不过里面的每个谜题都设计的相当巧妙,我每次解完(虽然我是“攻略狗”,对不起大家了)都要称赞制作者一番。

而且这是一个独立游戏,能做到这样实属不易。
