Informace o hře


Bedlam is a unique FPS game based on a novel of the same name by cult Scottish author Christopher Brookmyre.

Pitched as a shooter for those who survived online gaming in the 80s and 90s, Bedlam takes a look through an iconic time in online gaming and serves up some authentic gaming nostalgia with up-to-date graphics and gaming features. Bedlam is set entirely in the first-person but will explore other game genres from a first-person perspective.

In the game you play Heather Quinn (aka Athena) a colleague of Ross Baker (aka Bedlam). Heather is an overworked and underpaid scientist developing medical technology for corporate giant Neurosphere. One rainy Monday morning Heather volunteers as a test candidate for the new Neurosphere brain scanning tech - anything to get out of the office for a few hours.

But when she gets out of the scanner she discovers she's not only escaped the office, but possibly escaped real life for good! Heather finds herself trapped in Starfire - the violent sci-fi game she spent her teenage years playing - with no explanation, no backup and, most terrifyingly, no way out!

Join us in Early Access and get ready to unleash BEDLAM.

The description below was written by Christopher Brookmyre for the release of the novel in 2013

Heaven is a prison. Hell is a playground.

Would it be your ultimate fantasy to enter the world of a video game?

A realm where you don’t have to go to work or worry about your health; where you can look like a hero or a goddess; where you can fly space-ships, slay dragons, visit any period in history, any realm in fiction, yet all of it feels completely real. A realm where there are no consequences and no responsibilities, to the extent that even if you die, you can just respawn and start again.

Or would it be your worst nightmare?

Trapped in a place where every demon ever conjured by the human mind can be made flesh. Cut off from the real world, unable to see your family or friends ever again. Stuck in an endless state of war and chaos where the pain and fear feels real and from which not even death can offer an escape.

Prison or playground. Heaven or hell.

This is where you find out

4/5 for Indie - Good game and quite creative! A wee bit uneven on the difficulty curve and can be a bit tedious, but worth finishing. I'd probably be a little ticked about value for money if I'd paid full price, so definitely recommend this at the $10 or less price point.

I found this via a twitter post from the author whos books I enjoy very much and the book bedlam was a very enjoyable romp through a gaming universe.

The game. Not so much.

It starts well as a generic sci-fi shooter but then it never really develops as it crosses the genres with the slightly floaty handling and high speed movement. It works well as an old-school shooter but as the selling point is cross genres it doesn't really deliver as all we really get is a re-skin of the first level.

It was a bit buggy as well. I got trapped in a few places and saw some considerable clipping and was fired in the air a few times as well. The level design was ok but the voice acting and script was excellent with well portrayed characters. The difficulty was a little random going from stupidly easy to frustratingly hard often within a single level. You will value the quick save key.

For a cheap price and if you are fan of Mr Brookmyre it's worth a look.

I never laughed so much while playing a video game. Here in this little piece of art you'll find so many references to other games and game modes, I haven't expected this at all when I first saw the screenshots. Don't let the graphics scare yourself off, they are part of the game at the beginning and might let you feel like you're back in the nineties.

The concept is very unique; a bit RPG here, some retro arcade games there, all the references and that filled with funny dialogues and from time to time good music. While you're hooping from one gameworld to another the graphic improves while everything else will stay the same: Shooting and smashing yourself through a horde of different enemies with all the weapons you're able to find in the previous worlds and try to find a way out of the missery your character is in.

The ending though really strained my nerves. The game begun to stutter caused from many enemies that spawned, often resulted in a gamecrash. It's still in the early access so I hope this will get some improvements.

I really enjoyed the game and felt often reminded to the games I played back in the days. It took me around 5.6 hours to beat the game 100% but it was absolutly worth my time.

Get it while it's in a sale or in a bundle and you won't regret anything!

The short: While the core ideas are great, the uninteresting and uninspired environments, terrible gunplay which never improves, ridiculously accurate and frustrating omniscient AI, and lousy jumping puzzles in a game that is incompetent at platforming, all add up to a tedious and frustrating game experience.

The long:

I really, really wanted to like this game. The idea of going on a journey through the history of gaming within a game is great and one of the reasons I loved the first 3/4 of Evoland, before it became victim itself to the genre characteristics it strove to make fun of (RPGs). This romp-through-gaming-history is what also drew me to Bedlam. Here however, the genres being mocked are early FPS games, which I thought for certain had to be less tedious than the latter parts of Evoland when it reduced down to a grindy RPG. However, the great premise, witty humor and writing in the early parts of the game, and even the Scottish female protagonist could not save Bedlam devolving into yet another exercise in tedium.

The graphics and gunplay in the early part of the game is very basic, but the humor of the situation and the voice exchanges between the protagonist and other game characters were enough to keep me amused and interested to see where things would go. However, after trudging through the levels of this first 'FPS universe', it quickly became apparent that I would have to struggle through the tedious combat and uninspired game environments for longer than I would have liked.

The second game world that is explored in Bedlam seems even less interesting than the first. Lots of buildings and streets full of nothing but empty cloned rooms and textures. The only thing really occupying this world is the AI opponents - which themselves are also boring and repetitive.

Speaking of AI, let me just say this. At all times, as long as you are within a certain radius of the enemies, they will know exactly where you are, even if that happens to be up 3 flights of stairs or behind cover. They are also incredible marksmen and will never miss a target if it stands still for even a split second. This grew annoying very quickly, and while I kept hope that this game logic was just a way to mock early AI systems, nothing in Bedlam's core game behavior ever changed. Things actually get progressively worse as the enemies gain access to better weapons.

Oh and about those weapons! Alright, don't let anyone tell you there is no such thing as having too many weapons. This game proves that, beyond a doubt, you should not have access to every weapon you've come across at any point in time. Not only is it terribly difficult to choose a weapon in later stages of Bedlam due to the overwhelming number you have (especially using a mouse wheel), it is also terribly confusing as to which weapons are more or less powerful than one another. The developers could have easily remedied this situation by restricting access to weapons that are available on any given game 'universe', or at least removing ones that are similar in power to one another.

And now back to the game universes.. I wish I could say that the game worlds that Bedlam visits improve in design, or that the FPS gameplay itself improves, but that would be a lie. Okay, the one 'low gravity' Unreal-Tournament-inspired level was a bit of fun to play, and actually quite hilarious as the voices of angry teens mocked or reacted to my actions. I'd also give props to the 3D PacMan-inspired level if it was actually any fun to play, but it and the Space Invaders level just feel like early unfinished prototypes that were shoehorned in and wind up feeling just like filler. Luckily those two non-canon (FPS-wise) levels are over rather quickly.

The game world that annoyed me the most would probably have to be the 'void' that lay outside of all the game universes you visit. Its this weird fractured landscape that introduces platform jumping puzzles, and really shines a light on just how bad such a thing is inside an FPS game. Sure, there are probably one or two first person games that do this relatively well, but they are the exceptions to a rule. However, Bedlam goes one step further here by introducing a delay between the button-press and the actual jump. Yes, the character actually takes one extra step before jumping, which meant a lot of falling off obstacles to my death. It wouldn't be so bad if this was done only once or twice in the game, or it didn't reset to the beginning of the level, but unfortunately this mechanic is used and reused and becomes a major problem especially on the final levels. Learn to save often if you find yourself braving these areas of the game!

Alas, there's not much saving grace for Bedlam. It has a fun concept. It has good writing and humor in early parts of the game. It has a fairly decent voice actress. And it has one fun level. That's it. Terrible gunplay, AI, level design, and yes jumping puzzles all hamper the experience and make it an overly tedious and frustrating game to play. I'd suggest saving your money or buying this at a discount.
