Относно тази игра

Dark Matter is a 2.5D side-scrolling survival horror game, set in a derelict spaceship besieged by a sinister alien presence, and infested with deadly parasites. As the Ensign, you must explore fetid hallways and abandoned facilities, scavenging for parts and blueprints, expanding your arsenal to up to four deadly weapons and freely customize each to fit your combat style against intelligent, reactive enemies. Dark Matter delivers a hard-hitting take on the survival horror genre in deep space, with a heavy emphasis on tactical combat and exploration.

Story


Out of breath, you run into the door, slamming against its cold metal surface. The clicking of scuttling claws recedes into the distance, swallowed by the pitch black oblivion behind you. You know better than to feel safe. There are too many infested at your back, and another blank metal door ahead. With a quick reflex you check your ammo supplies, and slot a fresh magazine into your shotgun. With a quicker prayer, you flick the switch and open the door. The metal jaws open on endless night you don’t dare pierce with your flashlight, not to disturb those things that live in shadow. By the pale bioluminescence that washes up from the floor grates, you piece together the picture of a corridor, and what could be a stretch of exploding pods. Just beyond, the silhouette of a fully grown crawler stirs.

Grinning in the dark, you turn on the weapon’s flashlight, and point it straight down the corridor. Predictably, the blisters swell up to full irritation, ready to explode at the slightest touch. The crawler turns to hiss at you, instantly aroused by the light, and your presence. In your mind’s eye, it dumbly rushes forward into the blister pods to kill itself, saving you precious ammo.

It takes a precious moment to adjust to reality when the sleek shape crouches and jumps towards you instead. There is time for just one panicked shot before the inevitable flight, as you run for your life, barely keeping ahead of the claws slashing for you. In a moment of adrenaline-fuelled inspiration, you slam the wall panel as you retreat past the chamber’s door. The heavy, powerful mechanism smoothly slices the crawler in half just before the critter can reach and disembowel you. There is no time to congratulate yourself, as you hear a familiar hissing from above...

I find it slightly offensive that this is being sold as a complete game. You get the gernade launcher and your on a mission to do something to proceed the story and the game suddenly ends when you enter a door out of no where. You don't even get to use the gernade launcher except to access the magic end game door. It is very obvious that the game is not intended to end here but for some reason they just end it and released the game.

This little gem had a lot of potential but it's not finished.

I normally don't like side scrollers much but this one appealed to one of the niche styles of 2d scrollers I can enjoy, and when I got it, it was pitched as a full game, but it is not. It is part one of a series of games that was abandonned before this one was even sold, meaning the full game being advertised was already canned before it went on sale.

It's still an interesting play and can have a little fun playing it, but it's short, and like I keep re-iterating, it's not finished.. From the very beginning it starts foreshadowing an ending you will never reach, a move up through the ship toward the command section that never gets completely out of engineering, so it's part 1 of a 4 or 5 part story that barely gets started.

They came around, due to the outrage on the forums and eventually put in a super-brief, cinematic excuse for an ending, but it's still not what was advertised and does nothing to bring a conclusion to the story that the game starts.

I want to like it, but all I can feel about this game is ripped off.

At less than $5, I'd say go ahead and give it a try if you can like this sort of game, but more than that is horribly over priced for this short teaser of a game that never will be.

I was looking for a cheap 2.5D side scroller that I could play using my gamepad just to unwind with.
Sadly I chose Dark Matter. It's gamepad controls are so clunky that I had to switch to Mouse & Keyboard.
Which defeats the purpose of why I purchased this in the first place.
Also you cannot play in windowed mode because it's a black screen. This game must be played in Fullscreen.
The resolution options are extreamly limited.

While its worth it alone to buy the game for cards and its badge craft rewards. Dark Matter is incomplete and buggy. I got glitched into no stamina and no jumping mode at a part that clearly required me to jump to proceed. This in turn forced me to reload my game to fix the issue. The game is short and it did keep my attention for a while then came the queen who glitched into the closest door to me as I easily killed her. The game did not end and from what im reading it continues as you proceed to the Biolabs. I couldn't find the patience to walk my way back so I simply concluded the game there.

If you can get the game on sale then i'd say for sure buy it otherwise stay away from this one guys.
