Tietoja pelistä

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 give this one a rating of .25$ or less as of 2015/6/7, pick it up in a several games for a dollar bundle.
tldr: the game is under developed
the good:
+unique react to light enemies/environment
+potential for a good story
+depressive voiced ai narrator
+crew logs
+some of the larger rooms have good 3d atmosphere and detail

the neutal:
you act on a 2d plane in a 3d environment, there are several spots where it would have been good to include a shoot outside your plane rail shooter like dynamic to get background enemies
there are a few areas where some trivial stuff rolls out of your plane into the background where you cant get to it, slightly annoying, nothing important enough to be game breaking though, and otoh helps establish the environment as 3d.

the bad:
-the game was never truly completed, they patched in an end sequence on an incomplete game due to customer complaints about the game being incomplete
-abandoned by the dev, waited over a year before playing in hopes of more patches but it seems like this is it, this is also a good example of why not to support early access games, once they have the money there is no reason to further develop, instead let them take out a loan, bring a full product to the table, and have the quality of the product determine whether they profit.
-4 weapons one of which you barely have a chance to use
-the opening/ending cut scenes just don't tie into the game well, they are about energy based beings of light that you never run into in game, whereas the playable game is mainly about making it past various flesh and blood aliens to flip various switches.

note: I am an explorer type not a speed runner, I doubled back a lot during the game, also I leave games running while afk a lot so you are better off checking other reviews as far as game time

This game is incomplete. The store description gives absolutely no indication of this, but basically the developer ran out of money, and decided to publish a game that is only about one third done. Don't purchase this, at any price, unless the developer actually finishes it with the money he was able to trick out of people like me.

Developing and abrupt ending aside this game was a blast to play. Finished it in 8 hours (100 %) in one day, once i started it i couldnt let it go. For 1 E it was more than i could have asked for. Too bad that its not longer cause this game could have been something special. I recommend it at a discount.

Fun Little 3D sidescrolling shooter, with a couple hours of interesting story and gameplay. Worth a play if its on sale, though not worth the full price as the game is unfinished, has a couple of odd bugs and ends abruptly just as you are getting into the story.
