Over dit spel

Vigil: Blood Bitterness stort je in het duistere en schokkende verhaal van een eeuwenoude beschaving waarin jij de geheimen van je verleden moet openbaren en wraak moet nemen op Het Kwaad wat jou universum probeert te verwoesten. Rituele moorden en bloeddorstigheid vervagen het onderscheid tussen jouw soort en Het Kwaad dat je tracht te vernietigen. Je uiteindelijke doel is jezelf bevrijden van dit kwellende oord, en de oorsprong en het doel van dit eindeloze Kwaad te doorgronden.

Vigil is een gestyleerd gotisch horror-avonturenspel dat gebruik maakt van zwart-witbeelden op een manier die vergelijkbaar is met Frank Miller's Sin City™, wat een unieke visuele stijl schept die je dieper het verhaal van de hoofdrolspeler Dehon in trekt. Ontwijk dodelijke valstrikken, los puzzels op om je verleden te ontrafelen, en verslind zelfs de gezichten van je slaven om jezelf de kracht te geven je ultieme doel van vrijheid te bereiken.

  • Makkelijke wijs-en-klikspeelstijl
  • Diep verhaal met zwaar gestoorde en complexe personages
  • 3D-beelden met revolutionaire zwart-witstijl en dynamische cameravoering
  • Uitdagende puzzels die de geheimen van je samenleving zullen vrijgeven
  • Spannende filmische cutscenes die het ijzingwekkende verhaal vorderen
  • Een galerij met aanwijzingen in tekst, afbeeldingen, videobeelden en geluid
  • Gebruik meerdere multiplayerprofielen

Don't waste you money on this. I really don't know if they game is incomplete or is mean to be like this... when i installed it it send me to the page of the game "RIP - Trilogy", i did have to clic on the download demo to be able to start the game.

A lot of black screens where you only hear weird sounds, poor graphics, my monitor was constantly attemping to adjust resolution. Could get to the first level trying to click some parts of the scenery, send me to a dark screen... go to the menu, click on clues, the game crashes.

I suppose my PC is not compatible with this game... i suppose it may work on olders machines.. i suposse the dark screen are the pre-render videos... do you want to try your luck?

Many years ago I got this game in some kind of bundle. The game looks weird which isn't a bad thing but I didn't know what to do. Now after all those years I wanted to try this game one more time to see if this was really that weird. Sadly, the game is no longer playable. When trying to open the game, you will get redirected to another Meridian4 (dev) game called "R.I.P.". Besides I'm pretty sure the game is not even being sold on Steam anymore, but that's no real loss.

P.S. I did not spend this many hours into this game, the game got stuck in the background.

Well what can I say about this game?

Lets start on how to run it:
Compatability to XP/2k, play now in steam, that will take you to "RIP-Trilogy" page. Hit the download demo button (even if like me you already own the full version). Don't download, just keep the pop-up up. Hit play now again and there you go. Hit ALT + Enter when it locks up. If you hit F12 for a printscreen it will lock up.

Now the good:
It's usually free in a bundle
It's weird and abstract looking
When it runs ... it runs.

The bad:
Hard to get to run
Crappy controls
Good concept, but the actual game sucks


How would I rate this?
Better than getting a prostate exam by freddie kruger.
About as useful as a penguin with explosive diarrhea on a school bus.
I now know to avoid anything by freegamer or meridian4

Don't waste your money on it. I only played this game because I got it in a pack, and when you try to open it it sends you to another page to buy another game. After working hard to fix it, its just aterrible game. The resolution is bad, the graphics are bad, and it seems its meant for a computer made in the prehistoric era. DONT GET IT!

This has got to be... The best game I've ever played!
How have I gone without playing this game before?
I am just speechless at how magnificent this game is.
Sometimes, this game haunts my dreams with its beauty.

Generally, I refrain from reviewing games.
As you may have noticed however, I MUST review this gem.
My life would be incomplete without the Vigil Experience(tm).
Every time I view the game in my library, I tear up a little.

So, for those of you wanting to buy this game, I leave you this:
Usually, take any review you read with a grain of salt.
Carefully read between the lines each for review, even this one.
Keep in mind, I'm not recommending this game.
Sorry reader, but read the first letter of every line.

This game definetly is.... Unique for sure. No other game quite has the gameplay or graphical stylings that this does. However it soon becomes apparent WHY no other game has these. The camera often hides vital gameplay elements or vital elements are obscured by other similar looking black and white pieces. The controls are confusing and just buggy, the story is... somewhere. No idea where but wherever it is, its consuming a large amount of LSD.

Just avoid.

MINUSES:
- When I click on "Play", it sends me to buy "RIP - Trilogy™". But I already payed for this game, why do I need to pay for another game???
- I can't even launch this game!!!

P.S: If you ask me how and why I got 5 minutes playing, then I answer you I click on "Play", then "Library" (I did it approximately 100-150 times). Because, to write a review you need minimum 5 minutes playnig.

You... probably don't want to buy this.

Crazy, upsetting, bemusing video "quirks" aside the game has a setting that is tedious within minutes, headache inducing cutscenes and nothing in particular to recommend it other than a unique art style that you can get perfectly well from the screenshots.

Stare, sigh, leave.

Awful game. Every in-game video tries to change the screen resolution, and due to a bug the subtitles are not displayed.

The gameplay is pretty bad, slow and boring. Every time you click on something you must wait for an animation to finish. I don't want to play this game again.

Avoid at all costs!

Avoid this game unless you're running an ancient computer with Windows XP. It does not work on modern operating systems, even in compatibility mode. I'd be upset if I paid for it, but since it came with a bundle of good games no harm done. I just wish we could purge garbage like this from our libraries.

Horribly made.
Cutscenes didn't work, subtitles didn't work, it lagged like a ♥♥♥♥♥, camera angles took up to 7 seconds to change perspective, clues didn't work and the controls were just so bad.
It's a shame really because I seriously dig the artstyle of this game.

I don't get this game in the end. It's too indy to understand but the art in game is good, combined of contrast and minimalist concepts resulting in beautiful graphic. This game requires a trick to play cutscenes which you had to put Alt + Enter in the game and then it will run perfectly.

This game has an interesting art style. That's honestly where anything good ends, from what I've heard the rest of the game is bad but I can't even progress furthur due to game breaking bugs and the "interesting" art style means you can't tell a wall from an open space (really). Just avoid this mess of a game.

This game is extremely buggy.
Which is a shame, really, because beside that it has nice puzzles, great atmosphere and its overall dark gothic presentation is very good.

Vigil: Blood Bitterness combines a unique art style for gaming with some interesting sounds and wraps it around a bizarre story. Although it is a simple point-and-click adventure at heart, it is far from being intuitive.

I ended up getting frustrated to the point where I just went to YouTube and watched the entire story instead of playing it myself. The whole game can be completed in about 30 minutes and I didn't feel like I missed out on anything by simply watching it unfold.

The most annoying thing is that there is a known issue on Windows Vista & 7 systems where you are only able to see the videos when the game is in windowed mode. This would be fine if the game didn't force fullscreen every time you exited to the menu or returned to the game.

It's weird, but there's nothing here that I can really recommend. As part of the Puzzle Indie Pack on Steam, it is a great "freebie" considering all the other games in the bundle are decent.

When run, it would open up the store page for some random game. Had to download a demo for that game just to get this to run. Where a normal game would put cutscenes, I get a black screen with a raspy voice speaking to me in Portuguese. Somewhere in the middle of act 2 (~10 minutes in) the game quit and took me back to the title screen and I had no further motivation to play it.

This game has several videos in it and they don't work unless you are in windowed mode but even then it likes to jump back to full screen when it fells like it. That alone should keep you from playing this game.

The game itself seems to be VERY artistic to the level of only the artist knows what is going on. Very dated indie game. Might have been interesting in it's day but it has not aged well.

I only got this game as it was part of a puzzle pack with 3 other games on sale for a buck. This is the type of game that makes me regret spending the 25 cents that went toward this game. As other reviewers have noted, frequent crashes, awful and jagged graphics, iffy controls, and a multitude of other problems plague this game.

Vigil: Blood Bitterness would have gotten a C+ as a college project. As a published game that someone is expected to pay money for? 0.5 out of 10. I give it that much for the interesting color pallete and I thought the blur in the menus were an interesting touch. Other than that, I've had better gaming experiences in the loading screens of other games.
