Über dieses Spiel

Betrayer is a first person action adventure game that takes you to the New World at the turn of the 17th century.

The year is 1604. You sailed from England expecting to join a struggling colony on the coast of Virginia. Instead, you find only ghosts and mysteries. What catastrophe blighted the land and drained it of color and life? Where are the settlers and tribes who lived here?

Clue by clue, you must piece together the story of what befell this doomed settlement and find a way to set things right. You will be hunted by corrupted Conquistadors and ravening shadows as you explore an expansive wilderness in order to trace the brief, tragic history of the colony and search for survivors.

Key Features

  • Explore large, open environments teeming with danger and discovery. Chart your own course in search of clues and treasures.
  • Switch between two distinct worlds featuring different enemies, obstacles, and threats.
  • Wield early 17th century weaponry including muskets, bows, crossbows, and tomahawks. Upgrade your arsenal by purchasing or finding faster, deadlier, longer-ranged weapons.
  • Charge headlong into battle with guns blazing or pick enemies off quietly. A novel, movement-based stealth system lets you hide in plain sight or use the wind to mask your footsteps.
  • Equip ability-enhancing Charms to complement your play style, granting anything from extra health to faster movement to improved stealth.
  • Play with the default visual style for maximum eeriness and tension or customize the color and contrast settings to suit your tastes.

This had potential to be good, but the bland enviornments (nice art style, but all 7 maps look the same), lackluster story, and backtracking make this game too much of a chore. I wasn't sure what to do to finish the game (I probably have to talk to more ghosts), but I didn't care enough about the story or gameplay to finish it. I did look at the ending on YouTube though, and it ends very abruptly without much of a resolution. The combat is fine, but it's a slow trudge with too much backtracking with little explanation of what I'm supposed to do next. Anytime I play a game where I need to use a guide, it becomes less fun and more of a hassle.

TL:DR Betrayer tries so hard to be unique that it forgets about gameplay along the way.


The game tries to be unique by coloring everything black white and occasionally red and replacing the common mini maps arrows with a "play-button" and moaning sounds.

The idea is solid, but the story is lackluster and combat is VERY repetitive since there are not many different enemy types and all of them do the same in combination with glitched hitboxes. On a positive side: Salvaging your amo is a cool concept.

The constant ringing sound makes you feel like you have a tinitus and rappidly shifts from "unique" to "incredibly annoying".

Overall it is a very lackluster game that hides its gameplay issues behind the "art"-tag. People who've played Mad World have seen that this artstyle can be implemented for much more than "being a special snowflake".

Overall it could be fun experience despite it's flaws, but sadly combat and questing are EXTREMELY repetitive.
There are worse ways to spent your time, but also better ways to spent your money.

This game is literally one objective stretched over the course of six hours. The enemies are all re-skinned for each area. There's no music, the combat is stiff and boring. The open-world is mostly empty and there's no reward for exploration.

1. Find ghost
2. Talk to ghost
3. Fight generic enemies
4. Find another ghost
5. Beat the game

I literally crouched and meleed every single enemy I could and got the ♥♥♥♥ beat out of me by everyone else. Never really got into the game, but it was pretty good. 7/10

P.S. Do not use preset B&W graphics, change it to color.

Pros:
  • Good atmosphere
  • Two different dimensions and many lost soulds with mysteries to solve about their past
  • Decent combat
  • Good graphics for an indie game

Cons
  • While the combat was decent generally, at times it can be a pain in the bun (I'm talking about those savages)
  • Gets repetitive
  • Horrible stealth mechanics (Sort of forgivable because this isn't a stealth-centered game)

My score: 6/10

A really unique game; I've never played any game like it.

Pros:
The enviornment is BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, I love the wind effects.
Weapons feel really satisfying.
Story is interesting only if you pay attention to it.
Good fast travel system.
The darkworld is really neat.
Great value (Full price is $5 now, and it's $2.49 on sale).
The whole map in unlocked from the start (except for the very last area).

Neutral:
Not voiced.
It's hard to follow the story later in the game. The journal helps you organize what's going on, but I stopped caring towards the 3 hour mark.
Short. About 6 hours to do every side objective, loot every chest, and explore every corner of the map. I think this is a good thing though. If it were any longer, it would get boring and repetitive.


Cons:
While the wind effects are nice, the map lacks a lot of things you'd see in the woods. I do a lot of hiking, so it bothered me that there were no little streams, animals (besides crows), and density of flora/trees. I've actually gone hiking in Virginia (where the game takes place) and it looks much different. A lot of the map feels copy/pasted and is a little sparse.
Some of the enemies are just plain annoying.

Overall:
I'd say this is a solid indie game; you can tell the devs put their heart and soul into it. The value is good and there's enough to do to keep you entertained for 5+ hours, although, honestly, I probably won't replay it for a few years. I'm feeling a 7/10 for this game. Just be sure to buy it on sale (buy ALL your games on sale).

This is not your usual bad steam artsy "experience", this is a proper game with actual gameplay.

If you like exploration games with an ambiguous narrative, jump right ahead. If you arm yourself with a good pair of headphones and turn off the lights, you will have an incredible, immersive experience.

If you're still not sure if the game is for you or not; check out Sexbad's excellent review about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1Wvfn-rprQ

Betrayer does many things well. Great combat, graphics and a good concept. The combat flows well, the weapon types are different from each other and they all feel like how they should. The graphics (I played black and white because I'm a hipster) were actually my favourite part about the game. It's very neat, the models look fine and the whole black and white with the red to bring some contrast is just good to look at. The concept of being in the 17th century and ♥♥♥♥ is whatever, it could've been something great at least.

But the thing is that Betrayer failed to keep me engaged with it's story for long. There are multiple reasons for this. First, the story... I couldn't tell you in detail what it is. You see ghosts and help them or something, then theres this red dressed girl who you interact with. Your interactions basically have nothing to do with anything, she just says some cliché ♥♥♥♥ about everything, and there's no consequences of what you say to her. Random ghost stories, that could be the name of the game, too bad it's boring after the 2nd one. It could've been actually interesting but the delivery is so poor that I couldn't bother. I just went on fighting monsters, at least that's fun... for a while. Unfortunately there is nothing new after the 2nd area. It becomes stale very quickly. I just ran to the treasures, killed any enemies I saw and that's it. Not very exciting. And that's basically the whole problem with the game. It's fun for 1 hour and then it just repeats itself. When you get to the "climax" you just don't care anymore. The ending just he like the whole story, is an undeveloped joke. It's the pseudo ghost mystery ♥♥♥♥. I mean, it makes sense the girl doesnt want to let her sister go, but it could've been delivered somehow emotionally? But no, it's as bland as anything in this game. You can't even care about the girl because she acts like a robot the whole game.

So yeah, good combat and graphic design, but basically no variety and story delivery/flow. It's 5 euros if not on sale.. but it's not a good game nonetheless.

This is one of the most highly atmospheric, and unique FPS games I've ever played. The use of color, and the lack there of, is excellent. The minimalist sound is incredible; having the wind be the dominant effect is uncommon and a real delight. Unraveling the mystery and gameplay was frustrating at first, but well worth the experience. The action and difficulty were great, and the level of spooky was just high enough that my girlfriend couldn't handle playing it after the first few minutes, but the design and effects were good enough to have her just hover over my shoulder and watch.

I have never really played a game like this one very cool and had unique mechanics. You're shipwrecked on an island and need to find out what happened
Also remember that you can change the Visual settings so the day isnt so bright and you can also give the day time Colour I do still prefer the white Day colour

Pros
The environment is BEAUTIFUL and I love the way Night Time is done in this game (although I wished there was a lot more horror in this game
There are lots of collectibles to get and you will be able to boost your playstyle with some of the items
Weapons feel solid
Story is acceptable and you can choose to skip it if you want
I liked the combat to some degree and AI is done well

Cons
No voice acting in the game
Some of the story about the colonists are Cliché's (but not unbelievable)
Personally I don't like the ending

Overall
I love this game and it has cool feeling to it, it is a bit short but well worth the small price tag and would recommend this to anyone who wants to play a great game with a nice story ,combat ,exploration and some horror

I've played through the first map (excluding the "tutorial" map) and this game is both a fun and a very difficult FPS! When I say difficult, I mean once an enemy notices you, I often find it almost impossible to hit it! After doing something (no spoilers, so I'll be vague) you're still in the same map, but the game completely changes. One of my favorite games in my library 9.5/10
