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

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.

Hab ich noch gar nicht Betrayer gelobt? Muss daran liegen, dass ich seither auf der erfolglosen Suche nach ähnlich packenden Spielen bin. Dabei hat Betrayer keine Scriptsequenzen, keine vertonten Dialoge und - sofern man seine Griffel von der Sättigung lässt - nicht mal anständige Farben. Es gruselt, so wie es ist, ohne mich gleich wie Amnesia zu verschrecken. Und weil man sich die Handlung selber erarbeitet, ist sie weit eindringlicher als jede noch so pompöse Zwischensequenz. Kaum zu glauben, dass grad mal eine Handvoll Leute an Betrayer gearbeitet hat ...

Großartige atmosphäre und Grafikstiel. Auch die Geschichten, die man aufklärt sind recht spannend. Es ist wirklich interressant, zu erfahren, was die Geister erlebt haben. man sollte nur gute englischkenntnisse haben. Ein Minuspunkt ist die recht magere Aufgabenvielfalt. Ich geb trotzdem eine Kaufempfehlung.

Betrayer is quite extraordinary. Its atmosphere is amazing, with it's beautifully crafted black and white world. But it's an empty world, one that needed way, way more content than this, because the gameplay becomes quite repetitive after a few hours, even if the story is mysterious and intriguing.

You end up washed ashore and you have no idea how you got there or where you even are. Moving forward will act as a small tutorial and once you enter the next area the real game begins. Soon you'll find a deserted village, a village where you find a Maiden In Red (which the story is all about) and a bell. A bell that belongs to the village. Restore the bell and you can ring it, and it will instantly transfer you to an even darker world (please note that that's not quite true; the area remains the same, but the enemies and NPCs become different) where ghosts can be found. These ghosts tell a story and it's up to you to find more clues and solve the many mysteries this world has. You can switch between the light and dark world on the fly with the ring of the village bell and both of these worlds contain clues, found as letters or other objects. With the press of a button you will hear voices and sounds that will guide you in the right direction. Follow the sounds to find your next clue(s). An original concept that works very well, especially because it's an open world. I really liked it.

Of course, there are also enemies to be found and these are actually quite tough at times. But defeat them and they'll drop loot. Loot that you might desperately need later on, because the enemies become harder to defeat. Other ways to gather loot is by buying it from a digital salesman in the village or by find treasure chests scattered across the lands. However, if you get slain by an enemy you'll drop all of your loot and you have one try to get it all back. Die before getting it and you'll lose everything, with no chance of ever recovering it (Dark Souls anyone ?).

Enemies can be killed with stealth. Just use your bow to silently take care of them. Or you can kill them with help of the wind. It will mask your sound. Another original concept that works very well. Unfortunately, the AI disappoints from time to time so it's not always the way to kill off enemies. Enemies might never hear you even if you're only a few metres away from them, and other times they come running to you from miles away. It's all over the place and I was disappointed to see a polished game like this have such crappy AI.

There are several areas in the game and exploration is key for solving the stories. But like I said, it becomes repetitive after a few hours because all you do is look for clues, ghosts and treasure chests and kill enemies. There's not much else to do in this game. Now, I do have to say that it kept my interest all the way through (which lasts about 10 hours), mainly because there's no handholding. The lore and stories are yours to interpret. And this is exactly what also made Dark Souls so fun to play. You get small hints of what's happening or happened and it's up to you to think of what might have actually happened. Good stuff !

Betrayer is an excellent game and I'd love to see a sequel. But please, fix the AI and make the world itself a bit more interesting to explore. Recommended !

Betrayer is a very pretty game, and somewhat atmospheric, but the sense of isolation that contributes the initial atmosphere quickly turns to loneliness, and then boredom. The game is quite repetitive, and somewhat aimless.

The combat is fun enough, but ultimately I lost interest. If the game is amazing at the end, it's a shame, because there was not enough to draw me on. Loads of atmosphere, but not enough context or story to make me care.

Betrayer ist ein FPS mit guter, stimmungsvoller Grafik und ein paar netten Soundeffekten.
Das wars aber auch leider.
Denn sonst ist es eine Lektion in Frustration; viel zu starke Gegner (und viel zu schnelle) die einen mit 2-3 Fernangriffen killen die übrigens auch gerne rund um den Spieler spawnen, man ist dann meistens sofort tot, die nichtvorhandene KI tut ihr übriges, manchmal stehen Gegner einfach nur rum und warten auf den Tod, manchmal kommen 5+ Gegner aus dem Nichts und mähen einen einfach um, achja , die eigene Bewaffnung ist dermaßen lächerlich, dass man kaum 3 auf einmal vernichten kann,
keine Story ausser ein diffuses Roanoke-Gebrabbel über eine verlorene Kolonie wo allerhand Seltsames vorgeht (das ist ja Allerhand *gähn*) und großen Maps wo man nicht mal selber etwas einzeichnen oder notieren kann (und das wäre dringend notwendig, da jede Map eine "Tagseite" und eine "Nachtseite" hat, also doppeltes Absuchen jedes Quadratzentimeters). Dazu noch etliche Abstürze und fertig ist ein Spiel, dass man nach ein paar Stunden Spielzeit einfach weglegt und nie mehr anschaut. Perfekt für lange Winternächte und wenn man zu gut drauf ist.
