Эта игра сделана по новелле и является самой мрачной игрой, из тех, что я прошел в последнее время. Но смысл, заложенный в нее стоит того, чтобы "впасть в депрессию". Кстати не советую читать книгу, потому что игра намного лучше нее.

Из минусов тут только возможность попасть в тупик, из которого нет выхода и вам приходится проходить историю заново.. знаете, это напрягает. советую всем любителям квестов, знающим английский

Я просто не умею делать обзоры на квесты, позор мне!

Плюсы:

· Пиксельная графика. Но здесь, в отличие от Resonance, она оправдана временем, когда игра вышла, поэтому на большее нельзя надеяться.
· Механика игры напоминает LIVE A LIVE. Несколько несвязанных между собой персонажей, и за каждого нужно пройти его небольшой сюжет.
· Игра весьма неприятна для типичного геймера. Общий уровень кровавости и жестокости выше среднего. Вырезать сердца, калечить детей, жрать всякую гадость и тому подобное.
· Музыка местами просто отличная. Более мрачных и безысходных композиций нельзя и желать. Особенно музыка Горристера — это вершина.
· Прохождение историй порой на удивление нелинейно. Не так сильно, как хотелось бы, но это же квест!
· Озвучка АМ. Не всем она нравится, мол, актёр переигрывает, но для меня она идеальна.

Минусы:

· Нелинейность прохождений может привести игрока в тупик. И понять, что это тупик — нереально. Вы так и будете бродить по уровню до тех пор, пока нервы не сдадут, и Вы не убьёте героя обо что-нибудь.
· На фоне оригинального рассказа игра не такая уж и мрачная. Такое чувство, что разработчики сами убоялись своего детища и понизили планку жестокости. Поэтому игра теперь тянет больше на обычную сказку, только мрачную. А хотелось бы, чтоб игра была таким инфернальным кошмаром, который заткнул бы за пояс даже оригинальный рассказ.
· Снова психоанализ. Дедушка Фрейд, тошнит от тебя уже!

Harlan Ellison's "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream"(1995) is an excellent example of how, when turning a story into a video game, you don't have to sacrifice anything. Ellison's direct involvement in the game definitely shows and his voice as AM, the machine God, is brilliant.

The storytelling in the game creates a very immersive experience, drawing you into each character's mind and torment. You learn the deepest secrets and darkest fears, even the outrageous desires of these character's and the realistic reactions really put you in the character's shoes.

The premise of the game alone brings intrigue but the unfolding of this story in such a mysterious way is really what drew me in, I wanted to learn as much as I could about the post-apocalyptic world that was presented to me. The idea of a super AI turning itself into a type of God is interesting indeed.


The story is so excellently encapsulated, the imagery is macabre and barren, and it's all brought together here marvellously. Nothing is left out, in fact, in the gaming format you have an opportunity to explore beyond the main narrative.

Point and click at its finest.

I can also say, having played this back in the 90s, that this Steam version works really well and I believe the game has aged nicely.

This is a game I bought a minute after I saw a 9 second review clip. I have just rushed to the end of this game, and now I'll be rushing a review. I'll be spending the next few hours bumrushing plot summaries or looking at additional content, endings, and at some point I'd like to read the original short story pdf included in the game files. Okay this is stressful because I feel there's a lot to talk about. Holy ♥♥♥♥. More recently, I've become a big fan of point-and-click games and I've never touched anything like this. This game is GRIM, I could go on and on about how I've never encountered anything like this in any capacity (this includes all media, I'm willing to say that now). The story is insane, comprehensive, believable, well-researched, and covers a lot of controversial material. This game doesn't ♥♥♥♥ around. Here's where it's going to get a little spoiler-heavy. In this game, there is a ♥♥♥♥ scene, and it is story-serving. I know the area is gray but I would be shocked to learn if anyone was under the impression that such a scene was included to pander to deviant males or something along those lines (I'm talking now about criticism for Hotline Miami). This is by far the most mature game I've ever played. The villain, a supercomputer named AM, is almost comically evil in that he tortures five people profoundly for 109 years, keeping them artificially alive. While we're on the subject of AM, I want to get this out of the way because it's still fresh in my mind: the final level is by far the best in terms of story and visuals, the entire thing comes full circle without any enormous monologue or contrived adlib about the relationship between man and machine. It will not pull that ♥♥♥♥. I LOVE that the Russian and Chinese counterparts of AM and AM himself appear physically as god figures. I am fascinated in all things "ultimate" especially those types of metaphors which appear in very immaculate or, at least not in this case, formless designs. Let the pacing of this review so far be a reflection of how the game has impacted my mind in the time to follow. I'm this far in the review and I'm sensing the package is wrapping up nicely. How much more can I say? Do you need me to address every theme in this game at once, to put into poor grammar the peace I am at? I wouldn't be able to do it justice. I can't review the game properly. I have no mouth and I must scream, so to speak. 10/10 game, VERY annoying programming errors set me back a few hours. The story managed to trounce these negatives, it's that good. You'll sleep on this one for years.

Warning wall of text ahead:

This review will be based on the game only as I haven't read the short story the game is based of.
It kind of makes me sad that I have to give this game a negative review. But there are some things in this game that just didn't cut it for me, seeing how hyped this game has been over the years, always being mentioned in "best point and click/adventure games of all time" threads all over the internet, I don't really see why. Sure the story is very unique (and the short story is probably 10 times better) but I really couldn't feel that dark and twisted feeling that most people did.

Ok on to the parts that made me give this game a thumbs down. Oh and like many others who have played this game, I live and breathe point and click/adventure games. I grew up during the 80's with the big 3 on the NES (Deja Vu, Shadowgate, Uninvited) and I played my fair share of the Sierra/Lucas arts games during the years. So no "trolling" here. This review will probably get down rated anyway :)

The first big turnoff in the game is "trial and error" part, don't get me wrong I love a hard adventure game (took me months to beat Myst without a walkthrough). But this game forces you to either pick up a walkthrough (which I dislike) or save your game every time you interact with something. Why? Because if you screw up even the slightest you can't complete the game. And the worst part is that the game doesn't even tell you that you screwed up. So either spam that save/load button or stick to your walkthrough as soon as you pick it up, because you will need it more than once if you don't want to go mad. In the end I think I were suffering more than the characters in the game due to this mechanic.

The second thing that really killed it for me was the overall atmosphere over the characters. I saw some other comments like this under the reviews and it feels good that I'm not the only one noticing this. But these characters (without spoiling too much) have been tortured for over 100 years, and they just seem so... full of spirit.. At least some of them, some characters even joke around when your play them (Ellen). This is why I didn't feel the "horror" and darkness in the game. I really didn't feel like these characters were suffering or anything. You might think that these people were walking disasters after 100 years of mental and physical torture, but nope! I didn't care for any of the characters, I just wanted to skip to the next one all the time and sadly it never got better, only worse. And the ending was a HUGE meh, giving me a feeling like I have been doing everything for nothing (yes I got the best endings).

One other small problem I had with the game is the amount of bugs, stuff disappearing and multiplying (you pick up a key only for it to reappear when you reenter the room). Doors you can walk through sometimes and sometimes not because you have to "use" the door. But hey it's an old game, I can let that one slide.

TL;DR There are plenty of other horror adventure games out there with a more twisted and darker story (yes I said it) than this one. So save your money or buy a game like The Cat Lady instead and watch a complete walkthrough of this game on youtube.
