Acerca de este juego

Face your Destiny!

In Andergast, whose inhabitants are considered to be notoriously superstitious, King Efferdan awaits a state visit from high-ranking dignitaries. For centuries the kingdom has been at odds with neighboring Nostria, but now first steps are being undertaken toward a lasting peace. But a plague of crows troubles the king, for the birds are acting with unusual aggressiveness, even attacking humans. Moreover, there are those among the citizens of Andergast who swear that the crows are bringing them dark nightmares. As the belligerent creatures infiltrate even the castle itself, the king seeks a skilled bird catcher - an opportunity for young Geron to prove that the reputation for ill luck that has followed him since childhood is undeserved. Following an audience with the king, the prestigious task is assigned to him. However, not only does his task prove unexpectedly difficult, but it also turns out to be the first step of the greatest adventure of his life, which will lead him to the borders of the charted lands of Aventuria and beyond.

Una aventura gráfica como las antiguas.
Basada en el mundo de Dark Eye, el juego de rol de mesa aleman competidor directo durante muchos años del D&D americano, es un juego que no te puedes perder si te gustan las aventuras gráficas.

Como puntos fuertes del juego caben destacar, sobre todo, su soberbia calidad grafica ya que todo el juego son dibujos perfectamente realizados, la banda sonora encaja perfectamente, la voz de los actores (al menos en la versión en inglés) es muy buena, la historia esta muy elaborada (para entenderla perfectamente puedes llegar a necesitar rejugar el juego), una duración bastante larga para ser una aventura gráfica, varios modos de dificultad, sistema de ayuda con pistas, posee cromos de steam, y nada mas y nada menos que 36 logros, muchos de los cuales implican rejugar el juego y usar la astucia.

Sin embargo, también posee algunos puntos negativos, como la poca optimización del motor de juego, pese a que no da problemas ni apenas cuelgues, puede ocurrir el caso de al tener una tarjeta gráfica potente y ponerle máxima calidad gráfica el juego descienda a unos 2/3 fps, aparte de eso a veces le cuesta cargar entre transicion de pantalla a pantalla sobre todo si usamos doble click para ir mas rápido.

Afortunadamente el juego tiene configuración desde fuera de el.

En resumidas cuentas, es un juego a tener, con ganas me quede de jugar a su continuación, Memoria.

Most of my "play time" with this game was spent alt-tabbed out of it, which is pretty telling in itself.

The primary problem was that the story simply didn't grab me and thus I had nothing pushing me forward other than my completionism. Nothing much actually happens aside from the events right at the start that set things in motion and a sudden "turn of events" some two thirds of the way through the game, nor do you learn much of interest about the plot after the start of the game.

The protagonist is relatively uninteresting to start with and he doesn't develop or "grow" during the course of the adventure. Same thing with the relationship between the protagonist and his protegé - it doesn't develop meaningfully and nothing really happens, with one noteworthy exception; by the end they still haven't really said anything to eachother that couldn't have been said within the first five minutes.

When it comes to the puzzles I thought they required too much lateral thinking and occasionally simply trial and error - as opposed to logic - to solve. Too often it wasn't quite clear what the purpose of doing certain allowed actions was, and I used items on other items or hotspots "because I could", and was left wondering why until a contrived reason materialized itself after having done some other things.

The voice acting was pretty good. The graphics, well you can check those in the screenshots yourself. I thought they looked good to begin with, but by the end I had kind of stopped noticing the backgrounds and just looked around for the hotspots in order to get it over with.

As all Daedalic adventures I liked this very much. Music, Sounds, Voices, Graphics - all fits nicely together. None of the riddles felt like "try to combine everything with everything", but were mostly logical.
I disliked that after playing it longer it started to hang, repeating part of a spoken sentence 5-6 times and then working again.

Very cool. Excellent story, fun characters, very pretty graphics. I'll admit to having been truly stumped by several of the puzzles. It was usually because I had missed a clickable in another room; the handpainted graphics mean that clickables are really easy to miss against the background without using the highlight button, which of course feels like a cheat to experienced point-&-click adventurers like myself. The puzzles all had an internal logic to them. There were almost no occassions where I had to use a random thing that makes no sense like in some point-&-clicks. (Another thing that always throws me off in this type of game is when to use that one item that the character never drops (Indy's whip, Geron's knife in this case, etc.). It's a personal blind spot that I always forget I have it. Fair warning: Geron uses his knife a lot, specifically to acquire other items (pieces of rope, cloth, etc.)) Overall, very fun.

Also, I'm an old D&Der, and this kind of makes me want to drop it altogether in favor of the Dark Eye system/setting from Germany.

Probably the only complaint I have is the English voice actors. Both Geron's and Nuri's voice actors were very stilted and kind of felt like they phoned it in. Their writing was decent, but they didn't convey emotion very well.

Good point-and-click adventure. What I love about it is that most of the puzzles make sense.

Great story, puzzles are a little strange and sometimes counter-intuitive, but the story makes this one of the best P&C adventure games that I've played.

4/5

I definitely recommend this game. To whom? To anyone who appreciates art. This is several paintings in interactive form. Not for those who just want to shoot stuff.

Why should you buy it?
-As an introduction to Memoria, the sequel. You'll get to know the characters, and get the references in Memoria.
-Clever puzzles. Some are perfectly logical and relatively easy, while others defy logic (faerie realm) or are just too convoluted. Walkthrough will be needed. Sometimes its just a tiny little detail that eludes you (a thing that had to be broken). They are, however, still worthwhile and enjoyable.
-Good story! Its a nice adventure to have, meeting colorful characters, discovering many things, traveling to strange places and ultimately saving your hometown. Reminds me of the Chronicles of Narnia.
-Unique. Like its sequel, there is no other game quite like this out there.
-The visuals. The artists did an amazing job. While the puzzles in the faerie world are impossible to understand, the surreal art is wonderful.

Is anything bad?
-The lipsynching is broken. They fixed this in the sequel.
-The music is lacking or non-existant in many locations. They also fixed this in the sequel I believe.
-Some puzzles defy logic and may require a walkthrough for most to solve. They are not kidding when they give you ''impossible'' challenges. A hint system, such as in Machinarium, would of been appreciated.
-Animations are crude, often making the game stall for a moment, disrupting the immersion.
-Severak voice actors can be pretty annoying, especially the talking crow. Also, get used to almost every character hating your guts (its linked to the story though). The main town, Andergast, is pretty depressing (its pretty small too).
-Pretty short, especially if you use a walkthrough. It might take you a while to figure out the puzzles though. I personnaly gave up on that to breeze through and see the artwork!

Can't really give this a rating. Its a matter of taste.

Hope this review helped you out!

Buena aventura gráfica de corte clásico ambientada en el universo de The Dark Eye, un juego de rol de mesa alemán que goza de gran popularidad por aquellas tierras.

Chains of Satinav es una aventura que se hace muy amena por su sencilla interfaz "point and click" y su historia clásica con personajes entrañables. Los rompecabezas están muy bien resueltos ya que, pese a no tener una dificultad muy elevada, tampoco resultan demasiado obvios (hay que estar atento a las descripciones o emprender varios viajes de ida y vuelta en las zonas más abiertas para encontrar la solución de determinados puzles, pero no llegan a ser exasperantes por lo intuitivos que resultan gracias a la coherencia con los escenarios y situaciones). Por otra parte, los objetos que recogemos en ningún momento saturan el inventario y de vez en cuando se pueden combinar de forma muy básica.

Dicho esto, tengo que mencionar un detalle que me ha gustado mucho y que resultará esencial para resolver algunos rompecabezas: nuestro personaje posee un limitado poder mágico que le permite destruir ciertos objetos; pero eso no es todo, puesto que más adelante estará a nuestra disposición la magia que nos permitirá el efecto contrario (también con sus limitaciones, sólo podremos reconstruir los objetos si contamos con todas sus partes) y que nos llevará a alguna que otra resolución original mediante la combinación de estas facultades.

Por otro lado, historia típica de fantasía que entretiene sin más. Aquí es donde entran en juego el joven protagonista portador de infortunios Geron y su "despistada" compañera Nuri, la pareja en torno a la cual gira un cuento mágico que sabe sacar provecho de una duración ajustada y unos diálogos que no caen en la verborrea. Eso sí, el desarrollo del juego no está exento de algunos altibajos ya que, a pesar del emotivo desenlace, la última zona peca de ser muy fácil y precipitada. Por cierto, una historia que transcurre dentro de una buena ambientación propia del universo de The Dark Eye; no ofrece en todo momento paisajes bucólicos, sino que es más bien una representación "sucia" y pesimista del mundo, incluso con alguna escena sangrienta. Un mundo que contrasta con la actitud inocente de Nuri y que le planteará difíciles dilemas a Geron.

El apartado visual es Daedalic en estado puro, incluso me atrevería a decir que se superaron a sí mismos con esta aventura. Cada nueva pantalla es un auténtico lienzo en movimiento con preciosos dibujos creados a mano.

Afortunadamente, Chains of Satinav cuenta con subtítulos en español gracias a una muy buena traducción no oficial disponible para las versiones de GOG y Steam. Basta con descargar el parche (se puede encontrar sin ningún problema en páginas como Clan DLAN) y seguir unos sencillos pasos para tenerlo todo a punto. Por otro lado, el doblaje inglés resulta irregular, con voces muy buenas como la del narrador y otras un tanto más forzadas.

En definitiva, juego recomendable si estás buscando una aventura como las de antaño y sin demasiadas complicaciones.

Aventura gráfica clásica muy recomendable, con un apartado artístico y una banda sonora excelente. Todos los diálogos están muy bien doblados al inglés.

Para los amantes de las aventuras point & click clásicas, no puede faltar.

Como puntos negativos, destacar pequeños bugs, la mayoría se han solucionado al ejecutar el juego en compatibilidad con Windows XP y modo administrador.

At first, I wasn't really convinced, but I kept playing and quickly fell in love with this incredible point and click adventure. The story is captivating, the characters are endearing and the background drawings are beautiful. This is probably one of my favourite Daedalic's game. Recommended, without hesitation.

This is a game that I started probably a year ago, then got distracted by other games, and finally came back to a few days ago and finished. What does that say about this game? Not too much....I started this on the heels of playing a couple other point and clicks such as Primordia and realized that I wasnt ready to commit the time to it at that point. Recently, I started really craving a good point and click tough, so I came back to the game, and I am glad I did.

Set in the Dark Eye universe (which many other games such as the Drakensangs, Blackguards also hail), gives it a sort of muted, middle ages with mysticism feel to it, which held true in this game. It's a really interesting setting in my opinion. You play as Geron, a bird catchers apprentice whose master is slain for his participation in the burning of an evil prophet 13 years prior to the events of the game, and his knowledge of the presumed dead prophets plans to destroy the world as we (they) know it. This is actually not dissimilar to the Blackguards story line actually. Anyway, you end up meeting and falling in love with a beautiful faerie and embark on an adventure to save the world, even though you really dont know how. The story finishes with room for a sequel, but with enough resolution to not require it, which was a nice way to handle it.

So, this is a point and click adventure. How does it stack up? I felt it was pretty good overall. There were a couple frustratingly difficult puzzles (most notably in the faerie realm, for me at least) and a few super simple puzzles, but most were just right: they required some thought and trial and error, but not to the point of frustration or leaving you feeling bored. I thought it did what it intended overall, and was pretty well par for the Daedalic course. It didnt really stray from their adventure formula, but managed to stay interesting the whole way through.

All told, I would give it 7 out of 10. Nothing too extraordinary, but a pretty good game overall.

After playing some of the other games available these days and seeing the prices they are charging I have to change my initial recommendation for this game. There is a lot of content hear for you to explore and the story is a little weak at times, but overall it has a solid amount of challenging puzzles and interesting environments for you to interact with.

The reason I rated it down at first and my continuing problems with it are that the puzzles often have an element to them that requires you to pixel hunt the screens for quite some time to find them or use the hint feature (essentially cheating for a player who plays these kinds of games a lot). One or two is fine, but the consistency of the issue left a bad taste in my mouth. The other issue I had was that the main characters were very unlikable to me. Especially the protagonist. While a bit of negativity and "anti-hero" character can lend some authenticity to an otherwise cardboard cutout, he was downright miserable and his choices that I could not control left me with little sympathy for him or connection to him.

The reason I have redone this review is that, fundamentally, this was a good game marred with exactly the kind of things that can ruin a game for me. However, they are MY buttons and after stepping back a bit it is clear that they were really not enough for a bad recommendation.

This adventure game has reminded me with nice Point and Click adventure games I used to play 15 years back in time, It has beautiful art work, great voice acting and great atmosphere, however story is not that exciting (starts with a boring 1-2 hours) but it generally OK specially at the end, Puzzles are OK for me at least (ran into 2-3 puzzles which required me to look for a walkthrough and I find them non-sense in a way)

I recommend it for all adventure Point and Click gamers specially with this great price tag, it is a great value for money
