Informazioni sul gioco

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.

Excellent. Just excellent. If you want a FPS with loads of hand holding look elsewhere. If you want a tricky, stealth(ish), thoughtful story driven game then you should play this.

There are LOADS of good points (story, setting, style etc), with very few negatives. In fact I'm struggling to think of any negatives.

Take your time and enjoy the setting and enviroment. It's worth it.

Pretty fun game. Color scheme was cool, but made some enemies (flaming natives) nearly impossible to see. Thankfully you can adjust it on the fly.

The animal sounds for enemies has had lasting effects. I played and finished this game about a month ago. Lately I've been watching True Blood and those bird call in the background of the show are idential to a certain enemy type in the game. When I hear that in the show my ears perk up a bit since I'm used to thinking there is an enemy near.

Would somone please tell me the ♥♥♥♥ is the point of this game ? it's aimless and dull, why do I want to explore all these empty places, why do I want to collect all the ♥♥♥♥ that in this game, there nothing that makes want to continue playing, no story that's interesting and no combat system that's enjoyable and certainly no visual scenery that's worth seeing.

it's a checklist of a game that's leaves you wondering " Why am I playing this " halfway through it, Buy it on sale or spare yourself the waste of time and don't buy it at all.

Betrayer è di base un gioco di esplorazione ambientato in un momento non ben precisato del '600, in cui hai un ristretto arsenale (tra cui un Tomahawk!) per abbattere gli sporadici nemici. Tuttavia, ha diverse componenti, tra cui ambientazione, trama e colonna sonora, che lo rendono anche un gioco di natura horror-psicologico.

Grafica (85/100)
Personalmente ho trovato la grafica molto gradevole. Di certo non ha un livello di definizione pari a quello di molti altri giochi, ma d'altra parte la casa di produzione è piccola ed il gioco, in sé per sé, lo si può quasi definire ‘indie’. Tuttavia è molto ben curata e ha la particolarità di essere, di default, in scala di grigi, a parte i dettagli in rosso (stile ‘Sin City’). Ad ogni modo, si ha la possibilità di modificare questa impostazione, ottenendo tutta la gamma di colori. Io ho apprezzato entrambe le modalità, ma la visualizzazione voluta dagli sviluppatori coinvolge sicuramente di più il giocatore. Il punteggio molto alto che gli attribuisco è dovuto a questa sua particolarità di integrare il reparto grafico al gameplay, e quindi alla fruibilità della trama.

Colonna sonora (90/100)
In questo gioco dominano il silenzio, i rumori della natura ed il clangore delle armi sull'armatura dei nemici (o, se sei sfortunato, della tua). Ancora una volta, tutto va ad integrarsi completamente con l'ambientazione e la trama. Penso che pochi giochi mi abbiano fatto sobbalzare come questo (io, d'altra parte, me lo son goduto tutto, dall'inizio alla fine, di sera, nel buio più totale della mia stanza, per amplificare fino all'esasperazione il clima di tensione: consiglio a tutti di farlo, tra le altre cose).

Giocabilità (60/100)
Unico punto debole del gioco - o forse no, va a gusti - è la giocabilità. In Betrayer, quando sei in vista di un nemico, non devi sbagliare! Siamo, in questo caso, più sullo stile del film ‘Il patriota’: in certe situazioni, avevo quasi la sensazione che Mel Gibson mi dicesse <<Mira bene, sbaglia poco.>> e in caso d'emergenza usa il Tomahawk! Troppi comandi indipendenti, troppi tasti da gestire. Senza un mouse attrezzato, i comandi risultano un po' legnosi e l'errore è facile da commettere.
Un altro punto critico, è la quasi totale assenza di riferimenti. Ci sono stati più di una volta situazioni in cui non capivo esattamente cosa dovevo fare. Mi limitavo ad andare in giro per la mappa a trovare tutti gli indizi/pergamene/tombe del caso segnati sul diario. In altre parole, a quanto pare, la Blackpowder Games si è così concentrata sulla perfetta integrazione dei reparti grafici e sonori con la trama, che poi si sono dimenticati completamente di sviluppare una buona sequenzialità degli eventi in grado di guidare il giocatore nell'avventura. D'altra parte, l'alone di mistero che ammanta la trama ed i personaggi (od i nemici) che la popolano è assoluto con questa strategia. Di conseguenza, potrebbe anche essere una precisa scelta stilistica, nel mio caso opinabile.

Trama e dialoghi (95/100)
E si giunge finalmente all'ultimo e più affascinante aspetto di Betrayer: la trama. Da quanto letto in rete, la Blackpowder Games si è ispirata agli eventi reali avvenuti all'inizio del 1600 nella colonia di Roanoke, la quale fu teatro della scomparsa dell'intera popolazione: circa novanta anime svanite nel nulla. Il protagonista del nostro gioco è un naufrago, apparente unico sopravvissuto al disastro, che si ritrova quindi inizialmente ad esplorare la costa nel quale è approdato e a scoprire l'esistenza di questa colonia assolutamente deserta.
La bellezza ed il fascino di questa avventura è scoprire, grazie agli oggetti, agli epitaffi delle tombe e agli scritti lasciati dai precedenti abitanti scomparsi, le storie dietro al ‘trucco da Houdini’ compiuto da questa colonia inglese. Inoltre, qualsiasi apparizione, anche lontanamente umana, fa trasalire, porta a chiedersi <<ma quello chi è?>> e, successivamente, <<c'è da fidarsi? Sarà amico o nemico?>>. Infatti, la terra in cui siamo approdati è teatro del conflitto fra ben tre popolazioni diverse: indiani, spagnoli e inglesi. E tu sei un inglese (apparentemente).
Si tenga conto che, vista l'ambientazione, i dialoghi sono logicamente molto sporadici. Grande pecca, sotto questo aspetto, da rimarcare è l'assenza di doppiaggio. Ciò mi ha fatto molto dispiacere e la prima volta ci sono rimasto un po' male: è un grande peccato e, in caso contrario, sarebbe stato perfetto. Su questa ‘buccia di banana’, la Blackpowder Games si è giocata il mio voto massimo in termini di ‘Trama e dialoghi’.

Conclusioni
In sintesi, a mio avviso è un gioco assolutamente da provare, con uno stile tutto suo, sicuramente difficile, ma anche totalmente innovativo per certi aspetti, che può piacere o non piacere, soprattutto all'inizio, in cui sono numerosi i tempi morti (ma io sono rimasto affascinato dall'ambientazione, quindi poco male). Sicuramente a me è piaciuto. Trama coinvolgente ed ambientazione fantastica, con pennellate ben dosate di horror e giallo d'investigazione.

One of the strangest, jankiest, and somehow most rewarding games I've played. Makes me think what of the STALKER series. Its slow pace can be a little offputting, but I'd really reccomend sticking with it to see if it can get underneath your skin the way it did mine.

This game is like spending 8 hours running in circles on the first map of Silent Hill, then giving up and reading the summary of the plot on Wikipedia.

Starts well with great creepy atmosphere and sound, and ends up having a pretty good story and ending. The problem is that this game is fun for about an hour at the start, and about an hour at the end, but the 5 or 6 hours in between are incredibly tedious, repetitive, and pointless. You will run in circles for hours covering identical areas to find clues that tell you nothing and fighting the same enemies over and over, until any sense of fear or curiosity is burned out of you by sheer over exposure. Even accidentally skipping over some minor and insignificant clue will force you to go back and search for it, only to learn that it "reveals" some uninteresting fact you had already guessed hours ago.

The sidequests are what ruin this game. Even the sidequests that have a plot and point to them, you'll either figure out what happened or stop caring long before you finish the breadcrumb trail. And the game forces you to do every single time sink of a sidequest to progress to the main story, requiring a huge amount of backtracking and busywork in a game that was already painfully repetetive.

I would mark it as neutral, just for the visuals and sound, which are excellent, but that isn't an option. I can't really reccomend it unless you enjoy very slow, meticulous, and repetetive games.

When you first enter Betrayer, you're struck by the awesome monochromatic art design, the atmosphere of foreboding, and you get filled with a great sense of adventure.

It doesn't last long however, each area being much the same as the last, with the same enemies, same mechanics, same scenery. Things that were once fun to run around and collect become a chore. Enemy types are very few, and do not scale well with the ever-increasing power of your arsenal. Monsters that were scary once soon become little more than roadbumps (unless playing on the highest difficulty). There is some decent flavor text scattered about in the side-quests, except the final story quest requires you to backtrack over every single area and solve every single mystery before you can beat the game, which once again turns something that could have been an interesting side-quest into a tedious chore.

I recommend only buying on a steep sale, or not at all.

A descent game about helping ghosts find peace.
It is presented in a black and white forest landscape with the color red used for enemies or points of interest.
(You can change it to color if you want.)
The weapons are divided in bows(x2), crossbows and flint lock(x2), the bows are fast, the rest have to be reloaded after every shot, there is also a melee attack as a last resort, but you will need charms to improve it.
The first map (not the tutorial one), is the only one that has to be done in stealth, because you only have the worst weapons in the game and until you get the charm for melee damage you have less options. The second map starts spawning enemies that know where you are making stealth very difficult, but you should have better weapons and be far more active and aggressive, the hardest sections are the totem cleansing ones, because you run out of combat space fast, if you don't start prepared.
The game is divided in two worlds the overworld with conquistadors and burned indians, and the world of the dead with skeletons and banshees. Sometimes spiders and spore traps in later levels. All enemies are competent and will provide a challenge, depending on who sees the other first.
The story is based on early colonial times, you go around and find clues, then you ask the ghosts about the items and puzzle together what happened, in the end freeing their souls.

If you enjoy a good short horror story with a twist or two, then this is the game for you! "Investigations" are essentially that. A means of unvieling a series of (pretty damn good) short stories to the player mixed in with some combat and exploration.

The art design and sound are well done, and generate an appropriately spooky and haunting atmosphere. Being able to tune the amount of stylization was a good choice by the developer. I'll admit I was initially interested in the game because of the stark black, white, and red color scheme, but as I played I turned it to the more realistic color scheme. This only affects the daylight sections of the game. The night time is trichrome no matter the settings, balancing out the day sections.

The combat is surprisingly ok, but a little more feedback on your health would have been nice, as I died often without really realizing how injured I was.

I would have appreciated if the stories were tied to the enviroment a little more. Enviromental story telling is what videogames can really excell at, and while I can tell the developer made an effort to do that, I can only wish they had more time and a bigger budget to really flush out the world and details.

I seldom write reviews, but this is a game that deserves to be heard of, played, and enjoyed. If anyone reads this, and wants to know anything about this game, just know that the trailer video is all you need to tell you if this game is for you. This isn't a AAA 60$ game by any means, but I would have happily dropped 15$+ for such a gem.

Great experience, especially for an Indie game at $5. It isn't perfect, but I would say it is better than some AAA titles I've played. Only real problem I had was enemies seeing me through hills/trees sometimes. Nice graphics, nice soundscape. Overall thumbs up!

DISCLAIMER: This is a full review, and NOT a first impressions review like all my other reviews, if you want a better full review, then please read better reviews then mine

Betrayer is a game developed by Blackpowder Games and uses the Unreal Engine 3. You play a character who has washed up on the shores on a mysterious land, you meet a woman in a red hood, and over the course of the game you need to find out what happened and where the heck everyone is, the game, as far as I heard is inspired by a true story

The game is a first person shooter type game with rogue-lite elements in it. If you die, you lose all your stuff and you have to go and find the stuff you lost, however you can turn off this mechanic in the settings menu. You have basic old weapons, such as a bow and arrows, a common pistol and a musket. All with their real reloading and such, and this gives the game a unique feel to it, but can be frustrating at times when hordes of enemies come after you

The game does introduce stealth into it however the stealth mechanics aren't the greatest and easily avoidable. The enemies in the game are terrifying, from the red eyed Spaniards roaming the land to the undead, all with their terrifying sound effects. The game as whole is scary and unsettling at times, but I wouldn't call this a flat out horror game

The game also introduces a mechanic where you can travel between the living world to the other world, an even more unsettling part of the game. In this section of the game you have to find graves, clues and souls whereas in the living world, you have to find locations, letters and evidence. Over the course of the game, you will meet the only living person besides you, which is the red hooded woman

The game as a whole is beautiful, although nothing eye popping, the game does manage to deliver in the environments and atmosphere, the game is mainly in black and white with red colouring pin pointing the Spainiards and the red hooded woman as well as clues and evidence. In the other world, the world is much darker. Thankfully, you do not have to play the whole 5 hours all in black and white and you can change the colour saturation to make the game more colourful, however, this cannot be changed in the other world

Now, to my main complaint. The overall length and repition. I have to say the story wise, the game is fantastic and really had me hooked in its 5 hour or so campaign, however, the constant running in the woods, shooting some enemies, finding letters and clues and graves and travelling to the other world and seeing some dialogue whilst shooting another set of enemies in a whole of 5 hours is boring and unnecessary. Honestly, the beginning of the game was really interesting, as well as the ending and nearing the final bit of the game, but the middle part of the game was so boring that I did not even want to finish the game

Betrayer tries to hook you in with its atmosphere and environments but fails on diversity in other stuff. The story was very interesting, but killed by constant chores in every single map that the game offered

Betrayer is one of those types of games that only a few people would enjoy, if you look games with a good story, fantastic atmosphere and environments, whilst running on your own with no help from the game but doesn't mind the long repition the give it a try, if one of the above doesn't strike your fancy, then I'd said, leave this game aside

RECOMMENDED :)

This was such a refreshing title when I picked it up and started playing it. Creepy autmosphere with black and white landscape. It's almost straight out of a horror movie with shooter elements implemented into it. Although the story of the whole game is a little confusing and the character you play just seems thrown into the middle of it all it's still nice to make progress through it and see what might happen next. If you plan on 100% completing this game you'll be doing A LOT of saving and loading in order to get all the kills you need, but if you enjoyed the shooting as much as I did you almost feel like there isn't enough enemies in the whole game entirely.

This game is perfect in creating a specific atmosphere, especially when played in black and white, as intended. Graphic is astonishing and the light/dark (day/night) gameplays are a great idea, which fits perfectly into the game's mood.
The story is all right. Not great, not bad neither. Average. Intriguing at first, a little borring in the middle, with quite interesting ending which seems to depend a little bit on players choice.
It's definitly not an AAA game, but in my opinion a perfect first game of a new studio. Gameplay takes around 7-10 hours, which for $5 is worth a try. At least I am glad I played it. It was something new.

Im saying this without sugarcoating my words, this game is one of the best 5$ games ive ever played. The world in the game is exceptionally beautiful. Its kind of a creepy game which anyone can play unlike games like outlast, etc. There are no jumpscares. Weapons are very well optimized(you dont suddenly become a god jsut because you have the best weapon in the game).

This game is like a tiny bottle of expensive wine you buy seldom, you really enjoy it with one sip and its awesome. The other AAA games are big tons of content like a 6pack which pretty much does the same thing as a wine but doesnt give you that special feeling/taste.

Betrayer is a nice game really. It can be pretty scary alot of the time, with these loud sounds and screams. The enemies are well balanced to each new settlement. But maybe the game can get boring a little after some hours, but you should just really get going, only because of the story. The story is put together well, and it has a nice map. But overall I rate this game 7/10.

I love this game. It could easily cost 20e and still be worth every cent. High production value, excellent atmosphere and very refreshing gameplay. Got me hooked instantly.

Betrayer ci porta in una colonia americana del XVII secolo, nei panni di un avventuriero appena naufragato. Sicuramente il gioco non è adatto a tutti, ma a mio avviso merita di essere provato. è il classico gioco dove puoi apprezzarne i lati positivi o può darti a noia dopo poco.

Si può giocare in un originale grafica bianco nero e rosso(nemici, armi, oggetti in rosso), io ho preferito saturare i colori, ma in ogni caso ci sono varie parti di gioco in cui useremo la grafica originale. Infatti, tramite una particolare azione in ogni mappa, entreremo in una sorta di oscurità magica, dove fantasmi, scheletri e altri simpatici personaggi, abiteranno le mappe che sono le medesime del mondo normale, ma molto più… horror :D

Con una visuale in prima persona, dovremmo farci largo in un mondo creato da un susseguirsi di mappe, che devono essere giocate per forza una dopo l’altra, ma avremo anche la possibilità/necessità di tornare anche nelle zone precedenti. Le mappe sono in libera esplorazione sostanzialmente boschive, prati, colline, foreste e qualche raro insediamento umano sotto forma di fortini. Troveremo sparsi forzieri, oggetti da dissotterrare, note, altri elementi riguardanti le varie investigazioni da risolvere nella nostra avventura.

Le armi non sono molte, presenti in diverse qualità, si va da un classico arco, passando poi per la balestra e per pistole e moschetti del periodo, con tempi di ricarica biblici. Completano il quadro un paio di armi da lancio. Aggiungendo il fatto che con 3 / 4 colpi siamo morti, sottolineiamo l’esperienza hardcore che offre il gioco, infatti il tasso di difficoltà è parecchio elevato.

Il personaggio non è personalizzabile con propri attributi, solo qualche amuleto indossabile che migliora velocità, ricarica armi o cose simili

La trama, avvolta nel mistero di cosa succede in quelle terre è particolare, può sicuramente attrarre gli amanti del genere. I dialoghi sono solo in formato testo cosa coerente con la narrazione e il senso di essere soli.

Negli scontri, sostanzialmente, o cerchi di colpire senza farti vedere. nel caso di nemici singoli/poco numerosi, oppure quando sono in gruppo i nemici corrono verso di te e l’unico modo affrontabile è un ripetersi di fuggi e colpisci.

In sintesi l’atmosfera, l’ambientazione, l’originalità offriranno al giocatore amante ad esempio di rpg e simili, sicuramente un impatto molto positivo. Qualche difetto viene infatti accentuato alla lunga, dove le cose iniziano a diventare ripetitive, specie se non si hanno i riflessi pronti e si incappa in morti a raffica.

Scrivere una recensione su Betrayer non è semplice.
Il gioco possiede alcuni indubbi pregi, quali:
- Ambientazione desueta, nell'america del 1600 delle prime colonie;
- Grafica particolarissima con l'uso dei soli coloei bianco, nero e rosso, ben curata per l'anno di edizione;
- Due tempi di gioco, il giorno ed un'oscurità magica cui si accede con l'uso di un particolare oggetto;
- Si basa su di una indagine con sotto indagini molto ben articolate;
- Gira in modo fluido e privo di difetti.
Purtropppo i limiti del gioco sono altrettanto evidenti:
- Non è consentita la libera esplorazione, le mappe su cui si gioca sono consecutive;
- Cinque sole armi primarie di cui solo tre utilizzabili direttamente senza l'uso del menù;
- Nessuna armatura indossabile;
- Oggetti limitati a pochi ciondoli;
- Ami da lancio limitate a bombe e tomahawk;
- Nessuna interazione con l'ambiente:
- Pochi tipi di nemici diversi, in tredici ore di gioco ne ho visti 8 (tre tipi spagnoli, vespe, ragni, indiani, scheletri e spettri).
Detto questo il gioco viene a noia perchè l'ambientazione non ha caverne ne interni di edifici, solo foreste dell'america coloniale con forti in legno e piccoli insediamenti; gli scontri si traducono in un colpisci, fuggi ed elimina chi ti insegue.
Detto questo il voto è insufficiente ma consiglio lo stesso a tutti di acquistarlo perchè il prezzo dell'acquisto a saldo è commisurato al gioco che comunque merita di essere provato.

ATTENTION: AMD USERS

DO NOT BUY!!!!

Read the steam forum thread: https://steamcommunity.com/app/243120/discussions/1/558752451333082368/

It has been 2 years, and this has never been resolved. Both the devs and AMD have abandoned all efforts to solve this bug.

I believe the solution lies more with AMD, since this issue is very specific to their GPUs and their GPUs ONLY.

This game is all about atmosphere. Before I got my AMD R7 360, this game was immersive, despite being black and white (with some red, sometimes) only. I played it with a pair of 7.1 surround gaming headset and the audio was fantastic. But these two bugs (and there are more), really ruins it.

So, if you want to play this game and you happen to be an AMD user, don't. I for one will switch to Nvidia first before I play this again..

Am I the only one who gets chills or goosebumps with the sound effects in this game?

To anyone wondering if you can change the contrast of color in the game to make it colorful : YES : you can change it in the settings you don't have to play it in black and white.

Betrayer is a very unique indie game.

It's fps in a sense where you have a variety of weapons in your arsenal including bows, short bows, muskets, pistols, grenades, and even a tomahawk slashy thing.

It has several large maps filled with clues, secrets, enemies, and weapons. My favorite weapon in this game are definitely the bows because it's so fun to use.

It's not really a scary game I think it's just the sound effects that give me goosebumps when wearing headphones.

Overall it's a great indie game.

For whom the bell tolls

Blackpowder Games deserve praise for attempting something a little different with BETRAYER, and although it remains, at heart, an action RPG, they have succeeded in taking the genre in an unusual and interesting direction. This is a game that’s big on atmosphere, even if it is a tad light on content. Visually the game is quite unique, and the small indie studio have managed to create a world that’s far more eery and mysterious than can be found in most AAA horror titles. And this creepy atmosphere is further enhanced by excellent audio design. The combat is fun and reasonably challenging, and it does stealth pretty well too. It would, perhaps, gain something from a wider variety of environments and maybe from some voice acting, but on the whole this is an excellent little game. And it’s also great value for money. Some have criticised BETRAYER for being repetitive but personally I found my 26 hours within the game thoroughly enjoyable, and it never felt like a grind. And I managed to get all the achievements – huzzah! Sequel please.
4/5

Short, immersive game. Beautifully detailed graphics, especially for dx9. Simple gameplay, no nonsensical puzzles or long quests. Well-rounded overall, an excellent purchase even at full price.

Betrayer acts like the name states, builds up your trust then stabs you in the back at the end and proceeds to mock you while doing so. While I thought this would be a fun game it was far from it for me and felt more like a chore. The main character is a blank slate who gets practically no development throughout the entire game whatsoever. The black and white and red color scheme is nice for about five minutes then it gets annoying, luckily you can change the color settings in one of the menus. The game for me ran at a solid 15 frames per second the entire playthrough, im not sure if its the game or my machine so i will give it the benefit of the doubt. The main characters task is to go around as mundane exorcist Sherlock Homes who help wraiths come to terms with the horrible murder/♥♥♥♥/suicide they or a loved one committed. excluding the wraiths the only other interactable npc is little red riding hood who appartently has amnesia and a twin sister. The interactions with her are very bare bones and seem absolutely pointless as the game seems more focused on her than you. There is no music or dialogue/speech sounds in the entire game making things feel unfinished, it does add to the creepy factor though. I will admit the game did catch me off gaurd with a few creepy/scary moments. One thing i did enjoy was the introduction of new enemies for the first three stages which helped spice things up, but then things became stale again. There is major repitition in each level involving finding ghosts and objects then using said objects to trigger the memories of the ghosts so that they can forgive themsevles for murdering their friends/loved ones. You do this for every area over and over again, rinse and repeat. By the time you get to the last stage it was my wits end over the difficulty and frustration in the last fight. To top it all off the ending leaves you feeling betrayed and almost robbed of your time playing through this game. I wasnt able to see how great of a game this is but if you are still dead set on buying it I would recommend buying it during a steam sale or humble bundle as I do not think it is worth the full price.
