    《角落里的亚当之眼》

  

  早有黑岛游戏《异域镇魂曲》探索人性之深,主角乃一无名氏,无名无姓,不知其身世来历。游戏过程便是寻求那近在咫尺却遥不可及的真相,而其内涵深度则是围绕一个问题展开——“什么可以改变一个人的本质?”

  前年我接触到了一款名为《猫夫人》的游戏,在它制作期间我便有所耳闻,隐约记得还出过一个试玩版本。此游戏被归类为冒险解谜,但就我个人而言,它更像是一款文字冒险游戏,如果日本的文字游戏有另一种形式,那便是这样了。它的解谜成分很少,谜题简单易懂。乍听之下,此游戏似乎毫无可玩性,和日本文字游戏相比,它既不“萌”,也没有任何养成元素,和其他解谜游戏相比,它又毫无挑战性。它画面复古,表现形式简陋,有几位角色的配音甚至还有喷麦及杂音现象,那么我因何爱它?

  《猫夫人》的剧情是章节式的,虽不像《Alan Wake》那样将剧情分集,还带前情提要,却也是做到每章剧情分明,几乎可以借此拍摄迷你剧的地步。有那么一类游戏,是以剧本为主的,也就是常说的注重剧情,大多数文字游戏和冒险游戏都有一个功底深厚的剧本做支撑,《Alan Wake》也正是一个好例子。山姆.雷克功底深厚,吸取了电视剧《双峰》的灵感,创造出了这么一个精彩的史蒂芬金式的惊悚悬疑故事。而相比起山姆.雷克,《猫夫人》的创作者则默默无闻,这位名叫Remigiusz的主创独自撑起了一个工作室,为我们带来了一个精彩的悬疑故事,其编剧能力毫不输于著名剧作家。在现今愈发流水线化的游戏业中,这些不为人所知的独立游戏创作者依旧坚守着属于他们的一个小角落,如果你对这个游戏感兴趣,就掏出钱包花个三四十块吧。

  《猫夫人》的主角是一名中年女人,这在现今游戏界是不常见的,因为你总没法让一个患有抑郁症的、身体虚弱的老女人扛着火箭炮上战场吧。她只是一名生活在都市角落的、离过婚的孤独女人,唯有野猫与她相伴。在游戏开头,她便自杀了,故事也由此拉开序幕—— 一块金色的田野,风吹草动,苏珊的头发也随其摆动。她心想,我身处何处,这莫不是死后的世界?她继续前行,经过一片小树林,锯齿状的剪影在令人压抑的背景前摇曳。她走,经过田野和树林,踏过废墟,见过自己吊在树上的尸体,最终抵达死亡女士的住所。(这名女士的本名并不好听,曾在在同工作室的前作Downfall中出场)她困惑万分,却也别无选择,女士在她面前揭露许多事情的真相,揭露丑恶之人的内心所想。原野中狂风大作,诸多幻影闪现而过。在游戏复古的2D画面下,这些场面都被最大限度地表现了出来,气氛十分到位。而在接下来的旅途中,苏珊将手伸入了一个机器,手臂被齐肩切断,游戏开场曲也适时地插入,强劲的鼓点伴随飞溅的鲜血一同给玩家带来了极强的感官冲击。同时地,它又一次地提醒了玩家,此作品有些桥段或许会引人不适,请自行斟酌后再继续往下玩,接下来的剧情将会涉及到变态杀人狂、鲜血、以及许多黑暗的故事。

  苏珊在医院醒来,发现自己依然活着,并完好无损,护士说是一名自称她女儿的女孩将她送来的,那女孩已经离开了。死亡女士让苏珊重返人间,让她成为其使者,除去这世界的几位罪恶之徒。好的,若是RPG,这下可有戏了,主角会一路过关斩将,斩除罪恶之余还不忘给隔壁王大妈送送鸡汤,给村口张伯伯买帖药,最后一举成为大英雄;若是FPS,则是直升机直达任务地点,风骚地潜入,给几位BOSS吃枪子;若是ACT,若是ACT,我是个手残,恐怕BOSS都见不到,就被群殴至死了。

  但这既不是RPG也不是FPS也不是ACT,主角也只是个手无缚鸡之力的弱者,而她毫无线索。然而这些事终究会找她的,她会历经绑架、杀戮,她会目睹许多可怕之事,但总有一个人会陪伴在她身边,那个自称她女儿的陌生女孩。那是个打扮古怪,行事也古怪的女孩,她和苏珊之间发展出了一种友情,这种友情是不掺杂任何利益的,因为其一为濒死之人,其一为已死之人,身份的特殊让她们格外珍惜彼此。

  秉着不剧透的原则,许多精彩剧情我无法讲明,只能说这是一个掺杂着许多黑暗与丑陋、绝望与悲伤的故事,其中却又有着伟大的友情,像盏明灯点亮了黑暗。有个场景我印象深刻,城中下着绵绵细雨,灰暗的天空衬得一切都是黯淡的,蜜兹坐在阳台上,苏珊倚靠在一旁,听蜜兹将她的故事缓缓道来。那是一个悲伤的、充满遗憾的故事,那个故事让蜜兹来到此处,和苏珊之间建立了某种联系,她们都是社会边缘之人,在彼此身上找到不曾有过的关怀。这个游戏很黑暗,主旨却是积极光明的,我清楚地记着,在结局之一(游戏不只一个结局),苏珊说了一段话,大意为:或许你的生活很糟,充满了谎言与悲伤,压抑和绝望,或许你觉得天空一片灰暗,看不到阳光,但总有一个像蜜兹那样的人会出现在你的生活中……

  结局的这段话令我大受鼓舞,因我本人在那段时间也颇为消沉。在经历了一整个惊心动魄的故事后,这样的结局着实令人感动,这是一个充满了勇气和希望的游戏,你永远也不知道下一秒会发生什么转折,苏珊也是,但她总是勇敢面对。一次死亡让她脱胎换骨,友情给予她希望。整部游戏打下来,有如读完一本精彩万分的小说,读完后却又百般惆怅,半天缓不过神来,仿佛亲身经历过那些事似的。

  故事最终在一曲名为Forever的歌中落幕,我强烈推荐大家听听它,Siah的Forever。许多对上述介绍提不起兴趣的人,可能会被这首歌忽悠去玩游戏(不)。标题中的“亚当之眼”是我设置的一个小小的悬念,打完游戏之后,你就永远都忘不了这个名字了。

  在最后,当你细细品味完这个游戏,再次面对“什么可以改变一个人的本质”这个问题时,想必你的心中已有了答案。

Every once in a while you come across a game that strikes a chord unlike most others. A game that touches something profoundly deep in you and perhaps parallels your own life in many ways. I haven't found a lot of these games. In fact they can be counted on one hand, but The Cat Lady is among those few.

What I am about to write will be a somewhat biased review of this magnificent work of art. Biased because the game touches upon emotions and experiences all too real and haunting to me personally. But I will try to maintain some objectivity towards the game from a more general gameplay perspective as well. So a quick warning to you, dear reader, I may get quite sentimental and soppy writing this.

The Cat Lady is a 2D story driven psuedo-psychological horror adventure puzzle rooted in borderline depression, chronic loneliness and suicide. It puts you in control of Susan Ashworth, a 30-something year old woman who has taken her own life to end her emotional suffering. But instead of death's cold embrace she so longs for, a twisted fate has her waking up in a windswept corn field in Limbo, where she is forced into a mysterious pact with the Queen of Maggots; Susan must return to life and kill five evil psychopaths before she herself is allowed to finally die. Until then, she is gifted with immortality - much to her distress - for that is the last thing a suicidee could have wished for.

The bleak noir graphics and bone-chilling eerie music will plunge you into a dark and foreboding atmosphere with grotesque and nauseating visuals at every corner. Much of the game is portrayed in a borderline black-and-white style, and there is an everpresent gloom shrouding nearly every aspect of the game. It is unnerving and bizarre from start to finish. The bulk of the gameplay is done through ”find X and use on Y” type puzzles, most of which aren't too difficult to figure out.

The controls are a bit clunky and odd, and the volume on voiced dialogue and effects suffer from poor balancing. Although there are a few game-altering choices along the way, most of the story is very liniar and easy to complete. The real staying power of the game is its dialogues, character development and the exciting way the story unfolds. It draws you in and makes you want to continue onwards. The game dazzles you with its intense atmosphere, engaging social interactions and excellent writing. It is never boring; an interactive and gripping tale of fear, angst and a fair share of violence and gore with even some humor and laughs in the mix.

What strikes me the deepest about The Cat Lady is the gradual development of Susan's struggle against her depressive life. As the story progresses, she grows and develops so profoundly. More and more you begin to realize that beneath the haunting artstyle and horror, this is not just a story about monsters and murder; it is a story about conquering fear and negativity, a tale about heartfelt friendship and love. It is inspiring. It is empowering. And it is so vivid and genuine. Even if you have not been through the dark recesses of suicide and depression yourself, Susan's journey will still be a tear-wrenching tale of victory and self-enlightenment.

The Cat Lady is a hauntingly beautiful game that can be very scary to play. Not just because of its creepy visuals, atmosphere and effects - but moreso due to its brutal and genuine delving into the sickness of a broken human psyche. It is real. It is profound. I almost could not get past the first two chapters of the game for these reasons. But I am ecstatic that I pressed past my angst and stuck with it, because Susan's story unfolds into just a mindblowingly amazing telling of loneliness and tragedy turned to life and strength, love and friendship. She becomes an angel of vengeance, sent to kill demons in human disguise, but ultimately conquers her own demons as well.

Thank you, Harvester Games. You are gaming angels in disguise <3

This is one sick twisted game. It's a noir adventure game, something that is pretty innovative I think-- At least I haven't played anything quite like this before. It is an interesting blend of genres and themes that makes for a novel and stimulating gaming experience that doesn't feel played out.

It really pushes the envelope with some twisted, demented scenes that are hard to not enjoy, and become immersed in... even if you aren't really a fan of adventure games, if you want something creepy, thrilling, and with good writing and immersion: then I think you will like this game.

The writing is amazing in my opinion... and voice acting is extremely solid for the most part -- it has some of the deepest, trippiest, creepiest stuff going on I have seen in a game. The noir art style works, even though the graphics are simple it just somehow fits well with the tone of the game. The truth is, all the pieces of the puzzle just work together perfectly to create an enjoyable experience.

It takes really good writing and solid acting to be able to create an immersive atmosphere in a simple side scrolling adventure game, but this game delivers and then some. I'll admit, the story gets a little ridiculous and/or confusing at moments but that is part of the atmopshere.

As far as the actual puzzle solving goes, its a pretty simple game. Theres really more of a focus on the story and just creating an eerie atmosphere then there is on solving puzzles... but there is some thinking to be done-- just the right amount for the tone of the game in my opinion.

"The Cat Lady" will hurt you. The story of Susan Ashworth, a failed suicide forced to take a different path, will cause you pain and a degree of mental anguish - and that's okay, because there are some things that *should* hurt when you experience them, even through the proxy of a video game.

The game can be thought of as having two halves that intertwine with each other throughout. One half deals with Susan Ashworth's confrontation with five "parasites" - serial killers whose exploits are depicted with unsparing detail. This portion of the game is suspenseful, gory, horrifying, and ultimately not all that interesting; the shocks and surprises are so over-the-top that they're easily dismissable as something that only happens in the world of make-believe.

The power of "The Cat Lady" comes from its other half. This part of the story is far more personal, dealing with the past trauma that led to Susan's suicide attempt; her growing friendship with a young boarder named Mitzi with a haunted past of her own; and their efforts to save each other from the inner darkness that threatens to consume them. Their stories are dark, but the game wisely introduces a lot of humor in their relationship as well ("think of a vegetable") that occasionally descends into outright farce (the babysitter scene comes to mind). This balance, along with the excellent dialogue and voice acting, make Susan and Mitzi seem very real, and that makes it impossible not to emphasize with them both.

And that makes the game's soul crushing scenes all the more devastating. The one that hit me the hardest involves an argument between a husband and wife, one that begins with petty accusations and descends into shouted accusations that visibly bludgeon the characters. There's no physical violence or over-dramatized threats, and the scene is all the more terrifying because of it. The situation is understated and real, as are the tragic consequences, and I was unable to shake the uneasy feeling that I was watching the lives of two real people fall apart.

"The Cat Lady" allows the players to make choices along the way that decide Susan and Mitzi's ultimate fate: whether they conquer their pain or fall prey to it. I'm oddly proud that I managed to achieve a measure of peace for them both. When I was done, I briefly thought about playing through the game again to view the other endings - but I quickly decided not to. It is wrong to play with human lives and cause idle grief, and by the time the credits for "The Cat Lady" rolled I was unable to think of Susan and Mitzi as anything other than real.

Loved it! At times a bit slow maybe, specially at the start. But...

1. Awesome atmosphere
2. Interesting storyline
3. Sick and gruwesome
4. Did I mention sick?
5. Great voiceovers
6. In depth characters
7. Did i mention sick?
8. Low budget , but made in a way that it is just very artistic. Really well done.

Felt more like an interactive story for most parts as a game. ( like a story told with a picture book, not a movie.) But the game part was pretty decent too. Some nice puzzles. Not too easy, not too hard. Finished the game in one breath.

9/10

Now this is what i would call a game aimed at and for adults,and i say that because this story deals with some very heavy and serious issues (suicide,serial killers and all sorts of other things that are really aimed at adults and not for the ears and eyes of the younger generation).
Now i must admit i havent played as much as i would have like'd to yet (due to many other games getting in the way) but this has been one of the best adult experiences i have had with a game in a long time,excellent story (will not say to much as that would only spoil your enjoyment of what is a very well written and played out story)-the graphics really do suit this sort of game-and the soundtrack and spoken dialouge are all top notch.
Now you start the game and you die straight away,this is a problem in most games but not here as its all part and parcel of the storline,you then meet the "QUEEN OF MAGGOTS" and she then preceeds to send you back to the world of the living with a purpose,and says you must stop the 5 parasites before you are allowed past the pearly gates for peace and eternal rest.
So of you go back to the real world and thats when it gets more interesting,i wont say to much as you need to discover this for yourself but believe me thats the best way forward so no spoilers.Just to say that SUSAN then becomes one tough lady to kill,and i do mean TOUGH (some scenes are quite harrowing and i havent forgot some of them yet,thats why i said earlier in the review that this is not a game for children).
I hope that this game does well as to be honest i would like to see more games of this ilk that are actually aimed at adults released on STEAM or in any other medium for that matter,as there arent enough and we as aldults should have this choice as i for one will play many more games of its like if they were just out there.
So in closing if you like a good adult story that deals with grown up and mature issues and are looking for something with a more adult flavour then look no further than the CAT LADY.

Персональный рейтинг - 8 из 10

Сьюзан Эшворт была странным человеком. Друзей у нее не было... Если не считать трех усатых котов, которые, кажется были единственными кто был способен понимать ее без слов. С другой стороны, Сьюзан сама не горела желанием завести новые знакомства. Наоборот, она избегала людей. Те, впрочем, отвечали ей взаимностью. Должно быть, им было очень трудно пробиться сквозь пелену ее зеленых глаз и узнать что творится у нее внутри. Возможно, они просто были очень воспитанны и не хотели лезть ей в душу и досаждать ненужными распросами. А, может, они просто боялись ее, ведь то, что не вписывается в рамки нашего понимания и восприятия пугает нас. А, может, они просто боролись со своими демонами, ведь Сьюзан была не единственной в этом городе N кто хотел вырваться из замкнутого круга проблем и обрести покой.

...Проснуться... Долго лежать в кровати, уткнувшись в потолок, думать, чем бы занять себя так, чтобы грядущий день не был похож на предыдущий. За окном всегда был дождь... Капли с шумом врезаются в стекло, одинаковые как дни и недели, проживаемые в маленькой, но уютной квартире на окраине города. Она по привычке курила сигарету и молчаливо смотрела на унылый пейзаж. Ржавые крыши горбатых зданий, заводские трубы, неустанно коптящие воздух, наполняя улицы ядом и смогом. Казалось, выхода нет, и вся жизнь пройдет в этих четырех стенах, словно в тюрьме строгого режима, где вместо клетчатого неба - дырявый навес на балконе, вместо сурового вида охранников - постные рожи соседей, а вместо дурно пахнущей баланды - позавчерашний чизбургер.

Серость и уныние правили этим городом, огромными невидимыми глазами заглядывая в каждый дом, словно проверяя, осталось ли там еще частичка света, которую можно похитить и спрятать. Горечь от пережитого прошлого, бесцельное настоящее и отсутствие веры в будущее разъедали Сьюзан изнутри. И, казалось, будто все время не хватает воздуха. Пока она не решилась на роковой шаг... Казалось бы, надежды нет и все кончено, кувшин разбился и вода разлилась по земле. Но кошка всегда приземляется на лапы и, как знать, быть может, лишь потеряв все и дойдя до края черты, Сьюзан получит второй шанс. Шанс найти друга, вновь поверить в себя и обрести свои собственные 9 жизней.
__________

Personal rating - 8 out of 10

Susan Ashworth has always been a strange and odd person. She had no friends and no loved ones either... Not counting three kitties who seem like to be the only ones who could understand her without any words. On the other hand, Susan enjoyed her privacy and sought for no companionship. She tried to avoid people. People tend to do the same... Perhaps, they had a hard time trying to see through her green eyes and figure her out. Or didn't like poking their noses into other people's humble lives. Or were afraid of her, since we all know that things we can neither explain nor understand usually frighten us. Or maybe they were too busy fighting their own demons, since Susan wasn't the only one in this city who tried to escape from the vicious circle of problems.

...Waking up... Lying in bed, staring into the ceiling, thinking on how to live the day so it might feel different than the previous one. There is always rain behind the window... Drops hit the glass from the opposite side like a millions of twins, being the same like those days and nights Susan relives over and over again in her humble abode on the outskirts of the city. She smokes her cigarette and watches the grim-looking scenery that her city poses. Rusty house-tops, huge factory pipes polluting the air, filling streets with poison and smog. Seems like there's no exit out of this mess and your entire life is destined to be spent in that prison that is your own home, trapped in these four walls... Where you got perforated awning over your balcony serving as bars, crooked and worn-out faces of your neighbours as guards and stale cheeseburger as skilly.

Gloom and mediocrity rule this city now, peeking with their bright eyes into every window seeking for even a tiny shard of light to grab and hide it. Bad past, bad present and even worse future is upon her, at least that's what she thinks. And Susan feels she's suffocating. Until she decided to make her suffering stop. No hope? Everything's lost you say? Maybe. But cat always lands on her paws and who knows... maybe by reaching the end of the line, losing everything Susan would get a second chance. A chance to find a friend, to believe in herself again and to be granted with her own personal 9 lives.

The Cat Lady is a point-and-click horror adventure game. You are Susan Ashworth, a depressed woman without friends. Her only companions are cats. She is known in her neighborhood as the cat lady. The game begins with the suicide of the protagonist. In death Susan encounter the Queen of Maggots, who makes her immortal and gives her the mission to kill five psychopaths referred to as the "parasites." Susan then returns to the world of the living to wake up in a hospital bed and is soon forced to carry out her mission.
The Cat Lady is extremely narrative-driven, like a sort of horror visual novel. The puzzles are pretty easy. There are several endings and your choices throughout the game determine which you will get.
The graphics are well-chosen for this indie game. The colours are mainly black, white and greys but with a bit of colour in every scene. The game uses colour to help the player find the relevant objects.
The music is great, it really adds to the experience. The voice acting is good, nothing really big to complain about.
If you like horror games and point-and-click adventures then you will like The Cat Lady.

The Cat Lady is simply one of the most beautiful horror adventure out there, something that goes beyond a videogame and yet a work of art that only a videogame could have delivered.As long as you're not totally put off by the art design, there's no reason to not play The Cat Lady.A rare creation, a unique study on human behavior that exposes instincts, fears, desires that most of us would not even care to admit to ourselves.It's rare to find a game that deals with topics like depression in such a mature way. If you want to experience an experimental artistic adventure, you're in for a journey you won't easily forget.The Cat Lady offers a unique and deviated world and a setting full of horror and despair, although the keyboard controls and an excessive backtracking remain flaws to be reckoned with.A deep, scary, fascinating adventure with a mind-blowing story, a great acting and a positive utilization of soundtrack; still, there are some little flaws in the plot, and the gameplay is quite classic. Anyway, long story short: this is a hell of a game.

The cat lady is a point and click adventure game, but describing it only so would be an understatement. The puzzles are easy and solving them mainly gives way to an emotionally invested story. You are Susan Ashworth, - the cat lady- and you have just done what you wanted to do for a long time: committed suicide. You soon realize though that this is not the end, as you get sent back to life with the mission to kill some so called "human parasites", people who have done even more unthinkable things than yourself. Be prepared, this is indeed a horror game with a few disturbing scenes that mainly uses its bleak atmosphere and despair as its tools instead of jump scares.

Pain, depression, fear, hope, love, are twisted in a dream-like fashion in the form of a game. Its charm lies In that essentially, it embodies everything that makes us human. If you are drawn to things that will stir you up inside, this game is for you. The story of the Cat Lady will haunt your mind long after you have finished playing it.

I don't know why I gravitate towards games that deal with mental disorders, particularly depression and anxiety, but The Cat Lady is one that captivated me from the start. The game starts out with you committing suicide and ending up in what I can best describe as a purgatory of sorts. In order to save your soul you're tasked with taking those of deranged and depraved lunatics in trade. Each and every chapter is somber and more than just a little depressing. For anyone who knows what it's like to suffer such things it really hits the mark. The endings (for there are about three or so of them) really make an impact when you take the game as a whole into account. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to play a dark and somewhat twisted game. Just a word of warning, though. Don't play if you're already feeling down.

This is a masterpiece.
I have depression and have attempted suicide twice since losing someone loved. When I played The Cat Lady, it was expected to be an experience to make me a better horror writer, but it was far deeper in the end.

This is a game focused on its storytelling. Susan Ashworth is a deep and troubled character, and Mitzi is a character that brings life to the whole setting. It was an unforgettable trip through not only the struggle for life (or death?) but also of how deeply someone full of life can make you change your view about the world. It is a game about redemption and starting a new life, about facing the ghosts of the past and managing to let the sadness go and let the sun shine in your face once again.

One of the best audiovisual experiences I've ever had, under one of my favorite soundtracks ever. Easily one of my favorite games ever played. Thanks, Harvester Games. Thank you very much.

In all honesty it's hard to truly recommend this game because it's so depressing. Still, I'd like to say it's one of the most original games I've played and really quite thought provoking.

It's a pretty simple point and click style game that's heavily dialogue based. The main appeal from it is the unique focus and subject matter. Middle aged depressed women are hardly prominent in gaming and the focus on death, what hapiness means, what the afterlife is and how people interact with each other is highly original.

It has a very downbeat tone and art style. The game is in black and white for the most part and the music is oppressive, which helps forment the depressing tone of the game. The game makes you feel down, yet I still feel the need to play it. Which is an impressive accomplishment I think.

The visual style is a real treat. It's hard to describe but it's very morbid and macabre, with a surreal atmosphere. It's rather unsettling and dramatic but also uses subtle effects like lighting to set the scence.

If I have any complaint, it's that I feel some of the puzzles are far too obtuse. In a story focused game, it's annoying to have these overly complicated puzzles that due to the surreal nature of the game, tend to defy all logic. It breaks the pace of the game a fair bit at times, which is annoying.

Reading this back, it all seems very pretentious. It's well worth a buy when it goes on sale though, for the unique exeperience if anything. It's amazing to see a horror game that doesn't rely on cheap jump scares to be truly scary, but moreso a sense of foreboding, tension and things that are actually scary: the thought of what happens when we die and if reality is really what we think it is.
