"It's odd, it's visually striking, and its one of those "janky but weirdly enjoyable" type of things!"

Spanish and Russian!

Took us a while, but we've added two more translations. We owe special thanks to Silvia, Jesus, Oscar, and Fernando for their efforts on the Spanish translation.

You also now have the option of showing the locations of chests, page scraps, spade mounds, and other useful information on the in-game map. Markers are categorized so that you can show only the specific information you want to see. Note that if you already have a game in progress, markers won't get cleared for items you've already collected, but should still help you track down any you might have missed.

このゲームについて

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.

文章量が多い上に、ローカライズも日本語化MODも無いため、幼稚園児並みの英語力しか無い私にはプレイが不可能ではないか?
初めはそう考えたが雰囲気が良さげだったので頭を切り替え、船が難破し岸にたどり着いたのは実は人間ではなく高度な知能を持ったチンパンジーだった!という独自設定によるロールプレイングを行うことにした。

開始当初はそこら中に散らばっているアイテムを回収しつつ、ややシビアな戦闘をこなして探索するのは結構楽しかった。敵の攻撃力が高めのため一度に複数を相手にするのは厳しく、スニークや狙撃により慎重に敵を排除していくのはなかなか楽しかった。リロードがアホほど長いマスケット銃で一撃必殺を狙ったり、接近してトマホークをぶつけてやるのも爽快だった。猿を舐めるなよ。

しかし楽しかったのはやはりここまで、チンパンジーは飽きやすいのだ。
会話や文章量が多すぎてなにを言ってるかわからないよりも、広くて変化に乏しくで洞窟の一つもないフィールドをしらみつぶしに探索し、アイテムを回収したりベヘリットを開放する、恐ろしく単調な作業がだんだんと苦痛になってきたからだ。ひとつのエリアに廃墟が幾つかあるものの家屋などには入れず、大抵のアイテムはそこら辺に投げやりな配置されており、探索がアホらしくなってくる。

そんな訳で私は4つ目のエリアの途中でベヘリットを開放し、大量の敵にリンチされたところでやめました。やはりチンパンジーには無理だったよ。

ロケーションがいまいちの為、お散歩ゲーとしては楽しくないです。ある程度の英語力だけではなく、アクションの腕と忍耐力がある人ならば冒険を楽しめるかもしれません。

ひたすら歩き続けるものさがしゲーム。FPSシューター要素もあるけど、それが面白いかっていわれると別におもしろくない。なんの手がかりもなしに広いマップを探索するのは苦痛でしかない。ひたすらマップをうろうろしつづけて、敵に見つかったら倒して、調べられるオブジェクトや落ちてるアイテムなどを探して、たまに人と会話する。そんだけ。つらい。

First thing after starting the game was setting up the saturation level to make the colors appear. Then, suddenly the game looks much better! The atmosphere in Betrayer is quite mysterious and induce you to explore the "New World". Environment looks good. Trees, leaves and grass moves with the wind naturally. One thing that I miss are the animals, you hear them but, do not see. The story is about helping the lost souls to find their peace. To navigate through the world you can use special ability to hear. Actually there are two dimensions, the light world and the dark one which you are switching by ringing the bell. Shooting is more about timing and accuracy. 17th century guns reload very slow so missing a shot is a mistake you will regret so badly that it will make you cry... just kidding. Betrayer is quite unique so it's worth a try!

I found Betrayer to be both unsettling and fun to play. Everything you encounter is shrouded in mystery, be it your marooned situation, the person that shoots an arrow in your path to pass along a message, or the "darkness" you enter upon ringing the settlements' bells. At first I found it to be a rather unforgiving game. There's not a whole lot of handholding that happens with this: Here is your bow. Be careful with your ammo. Try not to die to ravening conquistadors on your way in. Pick up some clues and try to piece together what the hell happened if you make it that far.

Visually, I really enjoyed the black and white color scheme with the splashes of red to indicate things of importance (like piles of dirt, pools of blood, and things that want to kill you). But if black and white isn't your thing, and you don't enjoy that creepy Blair Witch vibe, you can adjust the color to the saturation you're comfortable with.

There is no voice acting, which I find only contributes to the atmosphere of the game, lending itself to a rather solitary and unnerving experience. There is no musical score to speak of, but rather the things you would normally hear in my neck of the woods (the birds, the breeze, and your own footsteps). A lot of this game works on audio cues. You can hear the enemies if you care to listen for them. Stealth is the name of the game (not literally... but achievements! And... health!). So I highly reccommend it.

Overall I enjoyed learning the story of these colonists. Some things, like the explosives you pick up, I have never found a use for, other than getting myself mercilessly slaughtered by every conquistador in the surrounding area. The ending, if not completely satisfying, is nevertheless what I would expect from this sort of eerie game. Definitely worth a look.

Betrayer is not a bad game, but not as good as it could have been.

A visible effort into making a stand-out first person shooter-stealth horror game. Personally, I liked this game quite a bit. I'm fond of the design and setting and the gameplay wasn't bad, but there is plenty of room for improvement.
The first thing a player will notice is the color scheme, black and white with red filters to create a unique visual setting which perfectly complements the lonely and abandoned theme of the game. It creates an unsettling environment and is capable of leaving a memorable impact on a player. But I found that while it does look neat, the style lacks substance and eventually becomes a chore to look at for prolonged periods. Thankfully you have the option to adjust color and saturation on the main menu, so therefore only half of the game gets tiresome to look at.

Betrayer's gameplay can be considered as a FPS with stealth and horror implements. The player has an open world dotted with enemies to be looking out for, and three weapon slots to fill with your choice of weapons. While the gameplay wasn't atrociously bad, there are some loose screws that break a chunk of the experience off. The game takes place in the 1700's in the new world (AKA modern day America if you don't know history) and takes advantage of the technology of the time period: Bows and powder loaded single shot firearms comprise your selectable armory. One of the problems I have with Betrayer is the weapons itself, being a first person shooter weapons are a very important part of the gameplay, and the weapons available are of short variety and are slow and meticulous to use. To fill your three weapon slots is a selection of 5 weapons, 3 kinds of bows and 2 firearms. The bows are unreliable in combat because a heavy chunk of enemy distribution are covered in a kind of armor that has a chance to harmlessly deflect your arrows, and the guns, realistically but kind of frustratingly, take a long time to reload. This makes the combat either frustrating or uninteresting depending on the player's approach.

Stealth mechanics are also implemented, enemies start off unaware of you but can detect you if they see or hear you coming. To counteract this, you can stay crouched and in shaded, obsure areas and move when the wind blows to block out the sounds of your footsteps. Stealth is even encouraged in the prologue level as it explains that enemies become enraged when in combat making them stronger, and that attacks while undetected deal more damage. A problem with this is that the stealth mechanics aren't as polished as they should be in order to suggest such an approach for the whole game. Enemies will always know exactly where you are if you mess up, and you cannot escape and try again, making a stealthy capture of a fort or outpost a "do it right the first time or not at all" deal. Also, I find that using arrows is more difficult with the black and white color scheme since its harder to determine where your arrows are flying, so it takes longer to determine the arc and most often giving yourself away.

For the horror aspect of Betrayer's design: I think it's subjective. I didn't find anything scary but that doesn't mean others will too. I liked some of the enemy designs, the maddened beasts wearing spanish inquisitor armor and the burned men (who are IMPOSSIBLE to see with black and white settings) are some of the most unique and creative designs I've ever seen. But at the same time the enemies are also so uncreative and boring. Other types of enemies include giant spiders and skeletons, might as well go all the way and throw in Frankenstein's monster and dracula to get the real Disney's Haunted Mansion effect. I was really disappointed at this turn, since the other types of enemies are creative and fit perfectly with the game's setting only to erase them out entirely halfway through the game and rely on cliche monsters you'd find in a kids halloween drawing. On a side note here, one of the most memorable and fun parts of the game is where you come across a large fort that you'd expect to be infested with enemies, only to find it empty. You feel slight relief at the unexpected respite when you hear battle horns in the distance and then find yourself under seige from the spanish inquisitors. This part was so unexpected and fun, I really wished that more of Betrayer had moments like this. Nobody suspects the Spanish Inquisition!

Now to the final point: Betrayer is a semi-open world game with a sort of mystery setting for the story, setting out a bunch of clues in the map and letting the player explore to find them, no handholding. This leaves the entire experience of Betrayer to the player's whim, do you scour the map finding each and every bit or do you rush through to the end? While this is a good idea, the game's design is flawed and incapable of supporting it. Resulting in a lot of backtracking, boredom and searching. Being "alone and abandoned with no handholding" requires that the game fully captivates its player, getting them excited and invested in the experience making them want to discover everything and providing positive reinforcement with a sense of accomplishment. Betrayer has none of these, you find a clue, make a note of it and maybe a ghost will say something about it. This results in the exploration of Betrayer being uneventful and disappointing. Not to mention that in order to uncover a large majority of items hidden you need a shovel, which can be found roughly half way through the game, resulting in a LOT of backtracking.

While Betrayer missed the mark, the ideas are there. It could have been so much better, creating a unique open world mystery game in the 1700's with supernatural twists and heart pounding stealth combat. Instead Betrayer is flat, repetitive and lacking in a lot of substance. Despite my enjoyment with the basic idea of the game and all of it's potential, I can't help but feel disappointed with the direction the game took instead. The appeal is there but doesn't build up to anything worthwhile.
