Recensioner

“A New Beginning ger ett fantastiskt intryck. Det är spännande, smart och envist. Grafiken är en sann fröjd för ögat och båda protagonisterna växer till komplexa personligheter som spelaren kan relatera till, till och med börja gilla.”
90/100 – http://www.adventurecorner.de/reviews/228/a-new-beginning

“Dialogerna, som har en seriös men samtidigt kvick ton, är en av spelets allra starkaste sidor. De ger de båda sympatiska protagonisterna djup och personlighet. Spelförfattarna har varit uppmärksamma på minsta lilla detalj.”
84/100 – Gamestar

“A New Beginning blandar in starkt definierade karaktärer i en fantastisk och minnesvärd bakgrund, sannerligen en ”ekothriller” som inte får missas.”
80/100 – Adventure Gamers

Om detta spel

A New Beginning är en filmisk äventyrsthriller som gjorts i serieromanstil. I detta charmiga och kvicka äventyr står jorden på undergångens brant, inför en klimatkatastrof. Det är livsviktigt att resa runt världen för att rädda mänskligheten och jorden från detta fruktansvärda öde.


Bioingenjören Bent Svensson var tvungen att avgå från sitt forskningsarbete om alternativa sätt att generera energi. Nu lever den tidigare arbetsnarkomanen ett isolerat liv i Norges avlägsna skogar. Hans tidiga och fridfulla pension invaderas av Fay, en ung kvinna som uppger sig för att vara en tidsresenär från framtiden.
Hon försöker övertyga honom om att hon är här för att förhindra klimatkatastrofen från att inträffa, och enligt henne är Bents forskning det sista hoppet för att kunna uppnå just detta.
Dock är hans resultat på väg att falla i händerna på en hänsynslös oljemagnat som inte bryr sig om något annat än sin egen vinst.
Tillsammans måste nu Bent och Fay sätta stopp för den hotande globala katastrofen.

Adding together all the elements, playful and creative, A New Beginning is not hard to be recommended as a purchase more than recommended to lovers of adventure games as well as the best the genre has been able to express, looking at the outputs in the shops and the main ones in digital delivery, in 2011. the sci-environmental theme is treated in a serious and interesting, used as background for telling stories and characters that accompany the player in the completion of a good number of puzzles, designed for variety and challenge. Too bad for some high and low and smudging techniques that are repeated in the products signed Daedalic Entertainment, otherwise fantastic in terms of design and artistic qualities.

So, i read the reviews on here. Everyone is going on about bad voice acting. Blah, blah. Really ? Ok, so let me help you if you are interested in this. Buy it. Play and finish it. This game is worth your money and your time. That is the bottom line. I loved the subject matter, and the game made me feel a sense of loss when i finished playing it as i grew close to the characters. Thus, it has a great story and great characters. Could the voice acting have been better ? Sure. But i played this for the adventure. There is a message here in this game, and i feel it is a good and honest message. Look after our planet and our children will have a place to live. It creates a sense of loss and longing as it shows you what could happen if we dont change our ways. It was a really great thought provoking graphic novel. And it will stick in my head for a long time to come. The puzzles are good, i could solve some of them quite easy. They are challenging, but not impossible at all. This game has a lot of emotion in it, It made me think back to old adventure games in the 80s. It has some great level design and locations.I love the art style and the color palette because it fits the game perfectly, creating the right mood. Helping to create a world that pulls you in and keeps you there. Everything compliments each other well, and creates the Ambience tied together with a great musical score. I really would like a sequel to the game, and would buy it for sure.

★★★☆☆

A New Beginning - Final Cut is a Point & Click adventure game. At the turn of the 26th century, mankind is about to be extinct as the last few hundred left won't survive the next solar flare. Sent back in time to prevent a climate catastrophy, Radio-operator Fay approaches Bent Svensson, a retired physicist, in hopes that his work an algae-based power source could save the world.

Pros: The story is interesting, having a slightly dark tone to it. You alternate between characters, viewing the story through their eyes, or through the way they tell their story. All cut-scenes are comicbook-styled boxes and text bubbles, while the gameplay scenes all appears hand-drawn in the most classical fashion of Point & Click games, topped with often dramatic tone-setting music. You must regularly interact with the environment and/or your inventory to solve puzzles, while standalone single-screen puzzles may be skipped after a few attempts, for those who want to.

Cons: The immersion is totally broken by the bad voice acting. The voices themselves would portray the characters fine for the most part while other times it's just silly, but the lack of any conviction in the way the dialog is so blantantly read directly off the script is what kills it. There are sync problems with the cutscenes, with reading pauses when the text changes line, sometimes even in mid sentence! There are a few translation glitches in some subtitles or interactions, and in a variety of languages, too (I saw some French and I believe some Russian, while playing the English version). The sprite animation is very frame-by-frame and not very smooth.

Verdict: I may have been harsh on the game's technical and audio flaws, but I nevertheless enjoyed my ride through the story. Sometimes optimistic, sometimes bitter, the game really made me wonder whether it would have a happy ending or not. In the end, I do recommand this game to anyone who wants to find out for themselves.

Very decent point&click adventure with a message and morale.

You control Fay, a woman from the future on a quest back in time to save the planet as its dying in her world, and the man she meets, Bent Svensson, a scientist, whom Fay believes can save the world.

The sound and music is decent there is definitely some flaws in the voice acting, particularly with main character Fay. Others also seem to 'overact'. Fays posture is also terrible, nobody can stand like that with a normally shaped spine.

Anyways; the rest of the game is decent, but you will probably need a guide at some of the puzzles. There is normally a reset button, on only one puzzles (water pumps) it's possible to ♥♥♥♥up so you need to reload. Note that the game does not autosave outside of remembering where you are, so you must save in order to get around this one puzzle if you want the achievement for playing all minigames. I also had Fay get stuck at one point, forcing be to reload from a save.

It also has some weird bugs; for example a rock/plank puzzle I was obviously supposed to walk over the plank, then pick it up and put it towards the next rock, but when I clicked to pick up the plank, Fay would walk over to the rock I was on before, then pick it up. She did this three times before she finally decided to pick it up on the rock she was supposed to be on. Had it not been such an obvious solution I would have thought I did something wrong and backtracked/messed about other things for a long time. I assume the puzzle requires perfect positioning or something.
Also 2 times in the game were the 'use item' options in Russian and near the end at an important scene the subtitles is in German with no English voiceacting. Very annoying.

Some of the achievements are also mutually exclusive, so a save must be made before some puzzles/encounters to make life easier.

The story is about saving the world from environmental disaster, so yes, there is quite a lot of talk about saving the environment and all life is precious etc. It did not bother me much as it was part of the story.
The story is long, 12 hours+ without skipping anything and the ending was imo very interesting.

Recommended; but be aware of possible bugs, lacking voice acting, and environmental talks. Save often in many slots, and keep a guide at hand for the most complicated puzzles.

PROS :
1- Cool comic-book style drawn characters and animation.
2- Pretty backgrounds in the couple areas you visit
3- Decent voice acting...
4- Interesting commentary on ecological themes
5- Interesting and intelligent, if not captivating nor exciting story

CONS :
1- Puzzles are contrived, over-complicated and a general nuisance. Thankfully, some can be skipped. Some people may like these puzzles, but I derive more pleasure from exploration and character interaction, and these silly puzzles just get in the way.
2- Constant Missing key syndrome. Sometimes its just a tiny little detail that eludes you, and you hit a brick wall. I hate this. I rather disinstall then have to deal with these bad design choices.
3- Melodramatic. Oh noooo its the end of the world! Everyone is dying! Oh nooooo! Your friend died too! Oh noooo...
4- Unoriginal. Doesn't do nor improve on anything that other Point n' Click adventure do.

Honestly, I didn't really enjoy this one... But I suppose it has its merits. It has smart themes, its just not very fun.

Recommend to anyone who enjoys complicated puzzles.
