Damned: A Randomized Online Horror Game

- What is Damned?

Damned is a randomized online horror game for up to 5 players (4 survivors and 1 monster).
You’ll be able to play as one of four people trapped in different haunted places (hotels, hospitals, etc).
As a survivor your main objective will be finding your way out, as well as helping your friends get out too. You’ll often find yourself on the edge, hearing and seeing ghostly things, trying to find keys and items to help in your escape. And sometimes you’ll find yourself running desperately from a monster, who’s there only to find and kill you and your friends.
You’ll also be able to play as the monster. The game will feature different monsters, each one unique in its gameplay and hunting style.

- What kind of horror game is Damned?

Damned explores the sense of being defenseless against a powerful supernatural force. The survivors can’t directly affect the monster in any way. When it’s there to get you, your only chance is to run and hide.
This perception of being defenseless is very strong, primal and terrifying, it builds up anxiety and makes you really scared, fearing any unexplained noise or movement.
This is how Damned creates horror in a multiplayer game session, and we believe it to be super effective! (tested and approved!)

- Why is Damned a randomized game?

Every stage in Damned is randomized:
  • Almost all the objects in a stage may or may not appear;
  • The item system is fully random too, randomizing which item will appear in the game, and where it'll be;
  • The way to win a match as a survivor is also randomized;
  • Even the stage may trigger random events to scare the survivors inside.

- Why is Damned a competitive and cooperative game?

Because in a full game, with 4 survivors and 1 monster, there’ll be a survivor “team” cooperating to try and escape together, and at the same time they’ll be competing against a monster, trying to flee from him and deny each one of its attempt to hunt and kill a survivor.

- How to play as a survivor?

As a survivor you’ll be cooperating with your friends (up to 4 survivors in a single game session):
You and your friends will be searching the level for keys and items to help in your escape;
Each survivor will have a flashlight that can be turned on and off, helping you see your surroundings, but at the same time letting the monster know where you are;
The survivors will be able to manipulate objects throughout the hotel, like drawers, doors, safes, cabinets, wardrobes;
Challenge yourself to find the exit and get out alive.

- How to play as the monster?

As the monster, your game will be all about competing alone against the survivors team.
The game will feature different monsters, each one unique in its play style. It's up to you to play a few rounds with each monster and decide which one works best for you.
How are you going to hunt and kill the survivors?

- Why is Damned worth buying?

Because it’s fun!
It’s really scary, you’ll find yourself on the edge a lot of times, trying to evade the monster or trying to pay closer attention because you don’t know if the sound you just heard is some random noise or if it is the monster haunting you.
It’s a real horror game, it explores deeply the feeling of being completely defenseless against a powerful force that can finish you easily. Your only choice is to run and hide!
And also because it’s really fun to play as the monster as well. You’ll keep haunting and building up anxiety in people, making them terribly scared of you. We really put you in the skin of a terrifying monster.

Werde durch grausame dunkle Gestalten heimgesucht und gejagt während du versuchst, deinem sicheren Untergang zu entkommen. Oder werde selbst zum Jäger und lass die Herzen deiner Opfer aus Angst erstarren, bevor du sie mit deinen Klauen in tausend Stücke zerfetzt! Hast du das Zeug, in einem Stück zu entkommen? Finde es heraus in diesem wahrlich schaurigen Horror-Survival Spiel. Doch vergiss nicht: Lass es deine Schreie nicht hören...

--------------------------
Mehr Informationen...

-=Gameplay=-
F: Wie wird Damned gespielt?
A: In einer Damned-Runde spielt man entweder als normales, menschliches Wesen oder als übernatürliche Abscheulichkeit. Das Ziel als Überlebender ist einfach: dem Höllenloch, in dem man festsitzt, zu entkommen. Das Ziel des Monsters ist ebenfalls einfach. Sorge dafür, dass keiner es lebend herausschafft.

Es können maximal 5 Spieler pro Runde spielen, 4 Überlebende und ein Monster. Die Überlebenden müssen versuchen zum Ausgang zu gelangen, indem sie verschlossene Türen mit gefundenen Schlüsseln öffnen, wobei der Ausgang ein einfacher Raum ist, indem sich alle Überlebende versammeln müssen um zu gewinnen. Da der Ausgang mit Holzbarrikaden versehen ist und sich nur mit einem speziellen, silbernen Schlüsseln öffnen lässt, müssen die Überlebenden ausschwärmen und nach einem Gegenstand suchen, um die Barrikaden zu entfernen und natürlich nach dem silbernen Schlüssel selbst. Danach müssen nur noch alle Überlebende in den Raum gelangen. Während dieser Zeit muss das Monster die Überlebenden jagen und töten. Es gibt keine Waffen in diesem Spiel, die Überlebenden können nur fliehen oder sich verstecken. Um jedoch sicherzustellen, dass das Monster nicht jede Runde zu 100% gewinnt, haben sie einige Nachteile. So können sie beispielsweise nicht immer ihre Beute angreifen, selbst wenn sie wissen, dass die Überlebenden sehr nahe sind. Oder aber sie können zu jeder Zeit angreifen, sind jedoch komplett blind und müssen auf andere Sinne vertrauen. Trotzdem braucht ein Monster nur einen Schlag mit seinen Krallen, um einen Überlebenden sofort zu töten. Es gibt zwei Spielmodi: "Normal Mode" und "Lifes Mode". Im "Normal Mode" hat jeder Überlebende nur ein Leben, während im "Lifes Mode" sich das Team der Überlebenden eine Anzahl an Leben teilt. Die Anzahl wird durch den Host festgelegt. Sowohl Schlüssel als auch Batterien für die Taschenlampe oder Brecheisen/Hammer spawnen in jeder Runde an unterschiedlichen Stellen. Des weiteren braucht man verschiedene Schlüssel für verschiedene Türen, so dass ein Überlebender mit einem schlechteren Gedächtnis viel Zeit damit vergeudet, die eine Türe zu suchen, welche sich mit dem gefundenen Schlüssel öffnen lässt. Schlüssel verbleiben im Inventar, selbst wenn sie bereits benutzt wurden und man kann sie nicht fallenlassen. Wenn jedoch ein Spieler mit Schlüsseln im Inventar dem Monster zum Opfer fällt, können sowohl die anderen Überlebenden als auch er selbst seine Gegenstände bei seinem toten Körper zurückbekommen.


-=Grafik,Audio,Erfahrung=-
Die Grafik ist nicht atemberaubend was auch nicht essentiell bei diesem Spiel ist. Im Gegenteil: Sie verstärkt sogar noch die Atmosphäre! Dunkel, unscharf und grobkörniges Bild - solch ein Aussehen passt perfekt zu Spielen wie Damned. Bei der Geräuschkulisse haben die Entwickler einen ordentlichen Job getan. Soundeffekte und Musik verstärken die Spannung. Es gibt eine Tonspur welche immer kommt, wenn das Monster in der Nähe ist oder wenn es einen Überlebenden gesehen hat, verschiedene Gegenstände in der Umgebung machen Geräusche, wenn man an ihnen vorbeiläuft und verraten so seine Anwesenheit. Die Monstermusik KANN manchmal eine Fehlfunktion haben und aufhören zu spielen, selbst wenn das Monster noch in der Nähe ist. Andere Soundeffekte könnten ersetzt werden. So sind die Todesschreie der Überlebenden nicht nur laut, sonder eher schrill und daher nervtötend. Diese Töne können nicht in der selben Liga wie die anderen Soundeffekte oder die Musik mitspielen, welche ihre
Rolle sehr gut erfüllen.

-=Technik,Steuerung,etc.=-
Leider ist das Spiel geplagt von unterschiedlichen und häufig auftretenden Problemen, welche entweder den Spielspaß beeinträchtigen oder es gänzlich unmöglich machen zu spielen. Einfach von der aktuellen Spielsitzung getrennt zu werden (und das auch noch nicht einmal zu bemerken sollte jemand anderes dies nicht mitteilen) ist nur eines solcher Probleme. Die Punkteanzeige (wobei es überhaupt keine "Punkte" im Spiel zu sammeln gibt) ist auch häufig fehlerhaft und zeigt nicht immer genau an, wer wen spielt. Die Liste an Fehlern hört hier noch nicht auf, ist aber zu lange zum auflisten. Die Steuerung im Spiel ist simpel, es gibt auch nicht viel zu tun. Überlebende können nicht mehr tun als sich in der Welt zu bewegen, Türen zu öffnen oder Gegenstände aufheben. Die Möglichkeiten für Monster sind ebenfalls begrenzt. Da es ein Horror-Survival Spiel ist und kein Rätselspiel ist diese Tatsache jedoch als positiv zu bewerten. Man ist viel zu sehr damit beschäftigt, dem Monster zu entkommen oder Überlebende zu jagen als an der Steuerung des Spiels, dem Inventar oder anderen Kram herumzuarbeiten. Die First-Person Ansicht funktioniert auch außerordentlich gut mit der Point & Click Mechanik des Spiels.

Pro's:
- Das Spiel macht außerordentlich viel Spaß wenn man es privat mit vier anderen Freunden spielt
-Die Angst zu sterben lässt das Spiel gruselig bleiben, auch wenn man die Karten bereits häufiger gespielt hat
-Drei unterschiedlich arbeitende Monster bedeuten, dass man immer verschiedene Taktiken anwenden muss, um am Leben zu bleiben, selbst wenn man sich auf einer Karte gut auskennt
-Sollte der Spieler die Verbindung trennen, welcher das Monster gespielt hat, ist das Spiel noch nicht vorbei und ein neuer Spieler kann das Monster übernehmen (oder der gleiche Spieler falls er die Verbindung nur verloren hat)

Con's:
-Viele der Karten sehen gleich aus oder haben ein Layout, welches sich als Nachteil für Überlebende herausstellt
-Das Spiel ist gut ausgeglichen, die Schwierigkeit (gegen Monster) ist jedoch für die Gruppe der Überlebenden meist zu hoch
-Eine Vielzahl an Spielfehlern behindern die Überlebenden und machen es dem Monster leicht sie zu töten
-An seinem Spawn-Ort getöten zu werden ist möglich und auch ziemlich einfach (dies passiert jedoch häufig ungewollt)
-Sollte ein Überlebender die Verbindung trennen, stirbt sein Charakter
-Im jetzigen Spielzustand ist der angesetzte Preis viel zu hoch und selbst nicht gerechtfertigt, wenn alle Fehler behoben wurden
-Man muss einen Account erstellen, ohne das ein größerer Sinn dahinter erkennbar ist

8/10 Still this game has lots and lots of potential, hey! but it offers what you wanted from the game! it scares the ♥♥♥♥ out of you! would recommend.

-below are anti monster guides on how to not be detected by the player-controlled monsters/ghosts





Overall basics
Rule 1. Don't pick up the batteries just because they are there. The batteries you pick up replace your previous battery. Meaning that if you pick up 2 you waste 1. Wait for your battery to be low before picking another up. This will save you in the late-game.

Rule 2. Voice chat is C, stop asking

Rule 3. When a monster is chasing you, DO NOT RUN TOWARDS TEAMMATES. All monsters are good at killing clustered survivors. Run in the opposite direction and let the others survive.

Rule 4. Help any new players with the basics. The more you help, the more chance this game has of seeing a real release.

Rule 5. Be aware of your surroundings. Know where you could go in case of emergency (this will depend on the monster you fight).

Rule 6. Sometimes things bug, get used to it.

Rule 7. I decide what qualifies as a "rule", get used to it
Anti-Lurker
The lurker is the OG monster. So if you be creepin' up on his turf, gonna get a beat down!

But, if you can't help it here are some tips.

Lurker fact: The lurker has a "ghost" form and a physical form. He can HEAR you in ghost form (like, the gamer has to use his actual ears (unlike the phantom)), but he can only KILL you in human form.

Lurker Fact: IF THE MUSIC CHANGES THAT MEANS HE'S NEAR! GET TO COVER!

Lurker Fact: The lurker sets traps by clicking on items in the environment. When YOU set off a trap (e.g. you set off a grandfather clock), be careful. He might have heard you.

Lurker Fact: The lurker CANNOT stay in his physical form for long. He has about 30-40 seconds in his physical form to kill you. If he stays in physical form for the whole time, he will be unable to use physical form for a while (2 minutes?). The shorter he stays in physical form, the less his cooldown will be (down to 13 seconds from a <2 second physical form)

Rule 1: Avoid traps! If you are playing against a monster who's main way of tracking you down is traps... AVOID THEM! Stay away from clocks, radiators, boards, light fixtures, toilets (these are the worst), ladders, wiji boards, and jack-o-lanterns if possible.

Rule 2: In the beginning of the match you have about 45 seconds of free time before the lurker CAN appear. Use it wisely and progress as much as you can in this time. Remember to stop running at least 20-seconds before you think that he'll appear (to charge sprint to maximum).

Rule 3: Doors! On maps with lots of small rooms, you can just go in a room, shut the door, and block it with your body. He can't get in... so.... it's good!

Rule 4: Tables! On maps that have wide open rooms, your best bet is to sprint away from him or to put a table between you and him. Then, just keep moving away from the side he moves to.

Rule 5: Flashlight! If the lurker didn't see you when he spawned, TURN IT OFF. He has bad eyesight and hiding is possible.

Rule 6: Don't look at him when running away. You'll slow down and die. A quick glance will suffice.
Anti-Phantom
The phantom is the least fun monster to play as, and the most fun monster to play against. He is hard to learn how to play against, but once you get the hang of it, it's really quite fun!

Phantom Fact: THE PHANTOM CAN'T SEE YOU. STOP RUNNING AWAY ALL THE TIME!

Phantom Fact: READ THE ONE ABOVE AGAIN!

Phantom Fact: The phantom can HEAR what you do. When you do something loud, the player that is playing the phantom will have you appear as bright white that can shine through obstacles and walls on his screen. Avoid: clicking the flashlight, overly clicking on doors and safes, RUNNING, walking very near the phantom, RUNNING, walking on top of the phantom, setting off traps, RUNNING

Rule 1: STOP CROUCH WALKING, IT DOESN'T HELP, AND IT MAKES YOU LOOK STUPID.

Rule 2: DON'T RUN TOWARDS TEAMMATES WHEN HE'S CHASING YOU!

Rule 3: NO RUNNING

Rule 4: If the phantom does "see" you, run as far away as you can. After about 5 seconds, the music will become more peaceful. When this happens, IMMEDIATELY CHANGE DIRECTIONS. This will send the phantom looking for you in a part of the map that is empty.

Rule 5: Leave all doors wide open, he can't see them. Closing them will just get in YOUR way.

Rule 6: STOP RUNNING, I'M SERIOUS! YOU JUST KEEP DYING!
Anti-Mary
Mary is scary!

Mary fact: Mary gains energy over time. She uses this for her 2 main abilities, Teleport and Frenzy.

Mary Fact: Mary gains energy if you are near her. This does not include when there is a CLOSED door inbetween you and her.

Mary Fact: She's really slow most of the time, but when she frenzies, you CANNOT outrun her.

Mary Fact: You can look to the left, you can look to the right, you can look behind you, you can look under your bed, you can look under your dresser, but don't look up... she doesn't like to be seen.

Rule 1: don't get near her

Rule 2: don't get near her

Rule 3: don't get near her

Rule 4: all of the above

Rule 5: So... you got near her... idiot! Well if she frenzies you still have a chance. Start sprinting in RANDOM DIRECTIONS. Mary is super fast, so it's really easy for her to overshoot you. Doing a random pattern of sprint can save your life. You only need to survive for 8 seconds anyway.

Rule 6: DON'T GET NEAR HER
Conclusion
Don't die

I'm writing this now, still a little stressed and in the throws of an adrenaline high caused by my friends. First and foremost, play this game with a group of friends who are bad at the game along side you and can get better with you. Playing with randoms online will not help you learn in this HIGH stress environment and the current how-to guides online are only so helpful.

Here's what you get:
You're one of the survivors in the haunted hotel/asylum/hospital, and your on a scavenger hunt for keys to open the various locked doors on the map. As you creep around, you deal with randomly generated hauntings that do aweful things like make the dark screen darker, mysterious spooky noises play in your ear, or keyboard keys can even be disabled. All temporary.
And thats all before your friend takes control of one of three monsters and attempts to murder you before you get the silver key and escape.

The keys and tools are all hidden in obscure places, anything from in drawers of desks to the garbage can in the woods. But never somewhere completly random like the middle of the floor of a ball room. They are hidden well, but not unfairly at all. The rest of the challenge is finding what doors they unlock. Eventually leading out.

The Three Monsters:
As of now there are only three creatures to threaten you and they all garner a different approach to avoid. Here's the long/short;
Lurker sets traps to try to pinpoint your location and materializes in a blink for a few seconds at a time. You pretty much just run from him like an old monster movie. Bracing doors and sobbing until he's gone.

The phantom is 'blind' and only sees players who make a lot of noise. People complain about him being Overpowered but thats mostly because they run around and get slapped instantly. You need to be sneaking when this ghoul roams the halls.

Then there's mary. She randomly teleports around the map, and if she fills up her spooky-meter she frenzies and can run at you rather than her usual trundle. Think the Witch from Left 4 Dead, popping and locking through the dining room looking for victims.

The Good:
-Very different kind of game play. If you have a group of friends you dont mind never wanting to talk to again, team up and go scavenger hunting.
-This is a HORROR game, not an FPS. When you see the monster you run. There are no guns, just a flashlight. This might sound like a negative, but it really helps amp up the FEAR
-Atmosphere. This might be a little generic, but they really do try to use your less obvious senses to pick up on the creepy factor. You get trained to listen for traps and musical queues, little details, that when you finally do see something. It hits hard and helps you scare.

The Bad
-Crashes. There seems to be a lot of crashes between my friends and I. Hardware capability dont seem to be the issue, and if someone drops midgame, they wont be able to get back in. They'll only be able to spectate.
-Genuine stress level. It might not be a problem to everyone, but I get genuinly stressed out. Legs tight. Hands sweating. Worrying about ever little step. This is why you play with friends. Let the strange monster creeping on you be your pal. Not some mook on teh interwebs.

Final Verdict:
Love it. Go in on a 4 pack with your friends. Maybe hope it winds up on a sale. Hopefully the crashes get patched out and new features like new monsters and different playable characters get added. But this is not a game I can compare to any other experience very well.

If players could jump back in if they were kicked and the crashes were resolved I would say full price is worth it. As it stands now, $19.99 is a little steep for what feels like early access material. However I still love the experience. And few things are as satisfying as hearing your friends fill their diapers over skype as you pop out around the corner.

I should start by saying that the game did provide a few sessions of fun. That being said, there are a number of problems with the game:

1. The premise is very narrow and wears thin quickly. At first it is scary and you die all the time. Then you realise that you cannot possibly complete this game (see point 2) without studying the particulars of the monster you are facing. The minute you do that, the scary aspect pretty much disappears, or in the very least much of it is lost.

2. The game is extremely hard for the survivors. The only way to beat it is to treat it like any other computer game and learn specific strategies... but in a game so dependent on atmosphere and fright, this ruins things.

3. Once you have your strategy in place, studied the monster to the point where there is nothing scary about it, and are ready to play, you will soon find the game becoming very repetitive and tedious. You will essentially wander around in the dark trying to find that one damn key that no one could find to the door that is still locked. After 20 minutes of going around in the same circle doing nothing but trying to imagine where on earth you forgot to look and you will be ready to pull your hair clean off your head.

4. The door opening and closing mechanism is moronic. You will not believe how moronic it is if you did not try it.

All in all, not a game I would recommend. Interesting idea, but not very well executed and also lacking in content to make it interesting in the long run.

DAMNED

is basicly Amensia: The Dark Decent
+ Coop/Versus
-Gameplay.

So much fear, so much fun, so much potential for improvements.

Unfortunately: Still many bugs! From the weird server browser to random crashes.
If you're into horror games and if you want an unusual Coop/Versus game I still suggest you to get this game, especially when you can get it on a sale

7/10

I recommend any day for its brilliant idea and the fact that the developers seem to care and expand their game. When I started playing, the game had 1 monster and about 4 maps. Now it has 3 monsters and 12 maps.

I can understand the positive reviews. There is the promise of a good game here, which promises to be a lot of fun with friends. It's just not that playable at the moment. The game should not have been released in its current state, since it is glitchy to the point of being impossible to play. Your game will crash, your voice chat will not work, you will be unable to connect, you won't be able to perform certain actions, etc. (At one point, I asked if it was still in beta, because it's absolutely unacceptable as a final version.) Even if those glitches were fixed, there are some serious design flaws. The stages are extremely dark and murky, which may create an atmosphere but makes it hard to see the tiny items that the survivors need. This decision might be okay if the game wasn't already so imbalanced. The survivors don't have enough options to get away from or defend themselves from the ghost, who has a one-hit kill. They also aren't given any indications about what keys open what doors, so it becomes an exercise in trying every key in every door. Worst of all, the ghost and the survivors are in the same voice chat, which makes it impossible to coordinate with the other survivors without the ghost hearing all your plans and knowing where you will be. So, in its current form, I cannot recommend it to others.

REALLY fun and addicting. Friend told me about this game and I picked it up on sale. First session was 5 hours straight, (other than the game crashes). It is crazy buggy, though. Feels less stable than most Early Access games I've played, but still, even with the bugs and crashes, this game is worth playing.

Very fun, scary, and hilarious laughing at eachother after a good jump.

Damned is a 3D horror co-op multiplayer game.

After many normal horror games I have encountered a multiplayer version !!
To begin with, you do need a separate account in order to play online. (I hate that)
Personally, I would only want to play this game with friends.
Playing with unknown people sometimes ruins the horror experience.

It is a game where a few sessions are fun.
Unfortunately, you run into problems quickly.

Game looks pretty good.
Control are fine and you get used to it after a short time.
Unfortunately, the game has many errors / bugs.
And it sometimes ruins the game a little bit.
AI does not function properly and that is a shame.

Game is already very extensive.
Various monsters and some maps, but.... I want more !!!
Unfortunately I don't think there is enough considering the normal price.

This is not an FPS so no weapons and only a flashlight.
Understand also that horror game as it should be and therefore this is not a game for me.

The price is very high for this game and I'll hope it will drop in price or get frequent sales.
And especially for a 4 pack would be important since this is a multiplayer game so that you immediately can play with your friends.

Hope that the makers fix all bugs so the game is a fun experience for everyone.

I give it a 7/10 and fairly high because it is quite original concepts is that you do not see much.
I think this game can be very good.

But I stopped playing after a few hours.
I wanted to to shoot some freaking zombies / monsters..... !!

Let me at least kick someone their ♥♥♥??? with a flashlight !!!
