Críticas

“NaissanceE’s world is an interactive Carceri, powerful beyond description.”
8/10 – GameSpot

“It’s an unusual, singular game that uses the normal tools of first-person shooter design (UDK) to make something plainly weird. I’d give it some kind of gold star for just being different.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Limasse Five’s creation, NaissanceE, is loneliness. It’s an exploration of the self. It’s a test of will. It’s discovering your personal solace.”
Indie Statik

Acerca de este juego

NaissanceE is a first person exploration PC game developed on UDK by Limasse Five with the participation of Pauline Oliveros, Patricia Dallio and Thierry Zaboitzeff.

The adventure takes place in a primitive mysterious structure and the game mainly consists to explore and feel the deep and strong ambiance of this atemporal world but platforming and puzzles areas will also enrich the experience.



NaissanceE is a game, a philosophical trip and an artistic experience.

The game is constructed along a linear path punctuated by more open areas to freely explore, some puzzles to solves and some more experimental sequences.

Going deeper and deeper in a primitive zone from “Naissance” world, the player will meet entities or mechanical systems. Whether those entities are life forms or pure machines, they react to player presence, to light and shadow and they may open access to the following.

If most parts of the journey will require only curiosity and logic, a good control and coordination on running, breathing and jumping actions will help to go through rare but exigent sequences, as an homage to old school die an retry games.

The main idea behind the game is to make the player appreciate the loneliness, the feeling to be lost in a gigantic unknown universe and to be marvelled by the beauty of this world. A world which seems to be alive, leading the player, manipulating him and playing with him for any reason.

Imagination is an important key to enjoy and understand NaissanceE. Walking in an undiscovered abstract structure brings questions about the nature of this world, about the meaning of this trip. Evocating and symbolic, the architecture and events will lead player’s imagination to find an answer, if it only matters.

Warning! This game is not recommended for people with epilepsy.

I feel like I haven't played enough of this game to review it, and that's just the problem, I can't pull myself any more. The game felt like a chore even after only 30 minutes. There were a lot of missing elements from it. To begin, the game almost sets up a horror vibe, which is never accomplished, and that is the biggest issue I have here. Second, the puzzles are really strange, and not in a good way, and tend to be either based in speed or platforming. Other than that, there aren't any obvious flaws other than how utterly boring it is.

Ended too soon/10

It's not really a puzzle game, there's only maybe 3 puzzles. Most of the difficulty is from platforming sections that took me hours but would take a mildly competent chimpanzee only one or two tries, or walking around sections that are too surreal to tell where to go. And it's a bit too linear to be called exploration. But the vistas are magnificent and the music fits them perfectly, so I definitely recommend this for that alone. Just make sure you buy it on sale, the game is really, really short.

This isn't a game. This is an interactive art. In NaissanceE, you will explore haunting but beautiful world which lacks a sign of life. Sanity even. At first time I played this, I was chilled and amazed its beauty. If you love surreal paintings such as Giorgio de Chirico, this one is for you.

NaissanceE is a game where you enjoy the sights along your journey more than anything else. It's certainly an immersive exploration game first and foremost, and it does not force its own explanations on you - it's open to interpretation.

Its distinct aesthetics of a seemingly sterile, "underdeveloped" world are very well realized. When you find pockets of high detain in the world they look bizzare and unnerving, even though they are closer to "reality" than low detail shapes of most of the world.

What the developers absolutely nailed is a sheer sense of scale of the environments. Without resorting to VR, you feel small and lost in its fractal-like vast environments. It's probably the only non-VR game that triggered my fear of heights - so tangible the scale is. It's a world where you are just a speck, passing through.

Oh, I wish I could take a look at this in VR. Sadly, and not developers' fault, the framework they build the game on is something Oculus only supported with DK1.

Pacing in the game differs wildly. One moment you are slowly traversing its terrain, taking it all in; the next moment you're running for your life from an environment threat with the soundtrack pounding the rhythm in your ears. By the way, soundtrack deserves a mention - it's eerie and fitting.

If I were to criticize the game, I would say that the difficulty spike in its last segment is unwarranted and was a source of immersion-breaking frustration. Also, don't expect the game to be very long - one can finish it in one long sitting.

It's linear, but I expect to return to it now and then. Only to see the sights again. They're worth it.

Superb atmosphere build by scale, lighting and music. There are some annoying platforming sequences i can look over because i had to actually use my brain to solve some puzzles. By that i don't mean the usual 3d puzzling like in portal where you learn mechanics and rules and how to apply those. There is some out of the box thinking involved. Played it at a friends, had to buy it aswell. Like a weird french movie but a game!

SPOILER ALERT
I don't know if the spoilers will be major, but read on at your own risk.

Now, this game is really not for everybody, despite the largely positive reaction from the playerbase. I'll outline some for and against points with this game to start with:

Pros:
  • The world is breathtakingly large, a marvel in its own creation.
  • Again, the world is incredibly beautiful and mysterious, in its werid monochromatic way.
  • Interesting mechanic with managing your breathing as you run, and creating a sense of freedom in your movement.
  • Puzzles are largely based around your ability to move and position yourself and other objects.
  • Incredible ambience, makes you feel like you are isolated, but almost as if this massive structure is watching you, or some primal emptiness is observing your every move.

Cons:
  • Puzzles are generally simple and can be boring at times.
  • The monochrome palette of the game sometimes leads to great difficulty in finding your way forward, especially when lighting is either very low or very high, which is more common than one might think.
  • With the breathing mechanic, it occasionally becomes tedious to continually click, especially in large open areas which you want to traverse as fast as you can. Don't get me wrong, it's an impressively original mechanic, and I love its execution, but there are some parts which could become boring when incorporating it, if you don't want to take it slow and admire the scenery.

I know that it seems like I don't have a lot to say about this game, but that's because so much of it is just so evocative and so enigmatic, that it's impossible to put into words. The nature of the environment is uncannily familiar, yet weirdly alien and distant, and just creates that feeling of uncanniness that stirs such emotion in the player. The emotional response to this beautiful world is almost like that feeling deep in your chest when you watch a TV show that focuses on something a little too close to home to be comfortable watching; like it's almost invasive and weird to see an outsider's view into your world? That's that same feeling in NaissanceE; you see this world which bears these uncanny resemblences to our own, but the sheer scale of the loneliness just greys out all your thoughts and fears about what could be around the corner, like a normal atmospheric semi-horror game could do. You feel a certain pale lamentation for the emptiness of this world. It's so hard to find the proper way to speak of the emotional response I have had to this game so far. It's like trying to grab a moray eel with chopsticks and push it through a pasta strainer. It's like... what!??

THIS GAME REQUIRES IMAGINATION AND INVESTMENT IF YOU WANT TO FEEL WHAT I FELT
I don't think that the developers have concrete lore for this story. I don't think they will ever implement it or ever should. I think that the true value in NaissanceE is what the player does with what they feel from this game. How YOU rationalise (or don't!) this crazy world that you find yourself exploring. I love to create lore for this, but I don't think any of it is more correct than any other. This is not a game about a backstory creating a storyline. This game is about a storyline creating a backstory, or artistic impression.

TRUELY AN AWESOME "GAME", but not for the unimaginative,...apperently.
Generally it can be said that the people casting negative reviews here, seem to lack the creative mental facilties to appreciate the absolute existential genius ideas that this "game" emcompass. Simply put, NaissanceE is one of the most moving experiences I've ever had in a virtual space and the reason being is the games hauntingly chilling embodiment of the human experience and its mezmerizingly beautiful and awe inspiring visual representation. The staircase scene in particular gave me chills, its dark, Sisyphus-like personification of our own humanly grind, the questioning of one's choices, "am i going the right way?" or "did i make the right choice?" feeling of being trapped in your own thought patterns, I think it draws a unique and interesting parallel between some of the real life choices we make; our doubts, our fears, our second guesses, that voice thats tells us: "you ♥♥♥♥ed up, turn around and start over." but you learn, you perserve, and you stumble through the dark, not knowing if the path your taking is the right one, but you stay the course and realize that with patience and willpower you can sumount any obsacle. However if you dont understand this basic but very powerful symbolism at work here, then I feel you, as a reviewer, you are sorely lacking the intellectual knowledge to put forth any meaningful critque of this "game." Its like saying "I don't get it, so its dumb." which yes, IS a hilarious paradox, i know. And generally speaking, most people dont read anymore, (outside maybe comercialized fiction) cannot understand simple rudimentary philosophy, and cant deconstruct simple abstract concepts, so its of little surpise to me that the sheer depth of the ideas were not ABLE to be fully appeciated by some, who, mistook it for what it is not....a puzzle "game."
The entire nature of my apprecaition for NaissanceE is its embodiment (at least to me) of philosophy, specifically existentalism. Its colors (the white and black has a Cartesian Dualism thing going on), its themes, the relation of spaces to one another, the themes of light and dark, the feelings of "deja vu" or of feeling like your doing the same thing over and over (Again as I was saying, this is done on purpose to illustrate some of the pointless things we do in our own lives, our routines, our rituals, our habits.), the vast universal emptiness, the feeling that your creation was pointless, that your are all alone and all that matters is the choices you make.
NaissanceE's art style is a conglomerate of Platonic solids, Surrealist dreamscapes, Escher-like reflections and continuems, and vistas taken seemingly from a dream of H.R. Giger, its sets a chilling, foriegn and otherwordly atmoshpere. You can almost sense that it wants to reveal its purpose to you and NaissanceE does that, as you wonder the creeking echoe-y corridors, running through monochromatic tunnels that bend and twist, you begin to discover the silent "story" deep inside this quiet structure. NaissanceE is able to conjure an extraordinary amount of reason and feeling using basic shades of grey and simple blocks, stirring deep, complex human emotions seemingly out of the benign. Which is what makes NaissanceE a truely unique and different experience. NaissanceE is test, an allogory to the testament of human will, and finding internal truth.

There were parts of this game that I genuinely enjoyed. The visuals and the atmosphere are amazing, the environments vast and breathtaking and the lighting made it look great even without textures on anything. However, too much of this game has you stumbling around in the pitch dark or falling to your death because it's impossible to tell what the intended path is supposed to be.

I realize that exploration is part of the game, but when part of that exploration involves walking across a vast desert for several minutes and then figuring out that I'm /supposed/ to fling myself off of a deadly-looking cliff no different than countless others in the game, that's poor design. Or when you're running up a staircase into blackness for literally 3 minutes and you can't tell if the game is progressing or is pulling some Mario 64 Bowser stairs shenanigans (no shenanigans, btw, the staircase is literally 3 minutes of running long).

There were some decent puzzles along the way, but the vast majority of the game is running across huge expanses of grey nothing or wandering down samey-looking corridors and trying to find which pitch dark little alclove has a staircase hidden in it. Several times I found myself stuck and unable to proceed, only to find out that the solution was to stand around for 30 seconds or so until blocks appeared as platforms or a door opened to let me proceed.

I finished the game just because I wanted to know if there was more to the story, only to find that the game pretty much just ends. This game wants to be Antichamber, but lacks anything to keep me invested.

The good:

Nice visuals, great lighting engine
Controls are good.

The bad:

Dull, grey, featureless environments copy-pasted onto each other. There are huge environments, but they are completely empty and you will find yourself walking down the same identical staircase 8 times for no reason.

Aside from a handful of puzzles, most of the game is very boring and uneventful.

One chapter is literally running across a vast bridge for 2 minutes followed by running up a staircase for 3 minutes.

The level design is like an Escher painting sometimes, but the path forward is hidden in pitch blackness or drowned out in white bloom.

The breathing mechanic when running, while interesting, is completely unneeded in a game like this.

Summary:
I would not recommend this even on sale. There is nothing to drive you forward. The exploration is boring and unrewarding. The levels are huge but contain nothing and if you reach the end hoping to find some idea of what the whole game has been about, you will be immensly let down.

I loved this game. It was fun, creepy, gave a good feeling of isolation and an alien environment.
Exploration was fun, the inane jumping tasks weren't *too* inane - I got past them in a reasonable amount of time.

Last level sucked about as many balls as it could. It was really cool to look at, fun idea, but it was a complete change from the rest of the game. It was running and dying and stupidly timed jumps. I didn't finish it. I watched a video about it and the ending. It was awful. I have no idea why the devs would screw up the entire feel of the game for the last level.

I still recommend it, as it was super fun until it was super stupid, and the dumb part was only the last ten minutes of the game, so I can mentally throw that in the trash and remember the fun part.


tl;dr: Great, minus the last ten minutes

NaissanceE has, in my opinion, a quality of level design rarely seen in any indie game. The parts of platform, puzzles and exploration come together to perfection all along and at no time I felt bored: most of times I felt intrigued by what would come next, and some other times totally marveled by the gigantic architecture of levels, all these moments served by its proper sound ambiance matching perfectly. Each checkpoint brings new environments and experiences all along.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=654423247
About the difficulty, it was for me perfectly balanced, I've never been stuck on any puzzle, nor any platform stage. All the progression was just tough enough to get the satisfaction all along and to make me want to continue the adventure even further and deeper. I just would like to warn the players with epileptic disorders, because some parts can be quite violent to the retina, and this is also what makes the power of NaissanceE.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=655102691
The duration of the game is quite good: it takes between 4 and 6 hours to see its end, depending on whether you choose to spend time exploring the nooks (like me), or complete the game in speed run mode, however because of the wide variety of environments, the playing duration "felt" is much more important (the entire game is divided into more than 40 levels actually). I only regretted the lack of replayability, since there are no hidden objects or success.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=658319078
Technically, the game uses the Unreal Engine 3, which is quite old, but satisfying and enough optimized here for the type of rendering chosen by the artistic direction. I did not encoured any bug.

I just would like to add that if this game becomes VR compatible, I think that some parts (a minority, but memorable ones) could provoke some serious disturbances because of their visual aggressiveness, but I highly recommend NaissanceE for those who like these kind of puzzle/exploration games and who have no fear of being surprised. 8.5 / 10

This game is just beautiful. I was simply wowed by the artistic beauty and simplistic commplexity of the game's aesthetics. The controls were a bit cumbersome, although manageable and the game is incredibly short. Takes about four hours tops to finish, uness you sight see.

NaissanceE is an experience quite unlike any other I've had in gaming. It feels like you're journeying directly into the minds of the creators - it's an interactive artwork, and it is hauntingly beautiful at every turn. Literally every corner of the strange, surreal worlds you'll travel to is captivating and aesthetically incredible, to the point that my finger was practically glued to the screenshot button throughout my playthrough.

Don't go into this game expecting there to be story, or even for puzzles to be a major part of the game. This isn't like the similar-looking Kairo, which IS a puzzle game at its heart. NaissanceE is all about the atmosphere, and has a spectacular soundtrack to back it up. From Blade Runner-esque synthesisers to strange organic grumbles, the soundtrack matches the visuals perfectly.

The gameplay, I must say, doesn't quite live up to the game's visuals. Sometimes it's really not clear at all where you need to go, and more in-game hints would be appreciated. Also, the platforming can be unintuitive and frustrating at times, and while the mechanic of controlling the character's breathing while running is innovative, it's more of an annoyance than adding to the experience. I've heard some criticism about the game's checkpoints being harsh and complaints about frequent deaths. I personally think the hazards the game throws at you justify the number of times you'll fall to your doom, and the anxiety you'll feel works well to complement your isolation in this bleak, hostile world. I do, however, think the ending was underdeveloped, and could have possibly done with a cutscene of some kind to wrap things up.

All in all, though, NaissanceE was an experience I won't soon forget. It's possibly not a game for everyone, due to the lack of story, but if you know what you're getting into and enjoy atmospheric games like I do, you're in for a mind-expanding treat.

Before all, a little warning : DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME IF YOU'RE EPILEPTIC

This being said, funerals of my brain will be held on next Monday. Considering their significant involvment during the last and painful moments of life of the few remaining cells i had, devs of this game are invited to attend the ceremony and, if they want to, say a few words about their bravery.

I don't know if i like this game or not. I played it, i finished it (somehow) and i'm very confused about what i saw and experienced.

It takes about 2 hours to finish the game, and although that can seem short, let me assure you it's in fact just enough. This was an intriguing, a bit exhausting, and yet intersting experience.

Description says "The main idea behind the game is to make the player appreciate the loneliness, the feeling to be lost in a gigantic unknown universe and to be marvelled by the beauty of this world.", and i think this goal is fully achieved. Level design is really impressive and you often stop running just to admire.

However, i think the game is a bit overpriced. I'd say it's worth 6 to 10€, depending on your taste for weird games :D

I'm not really sure how to summarize this game. A metaphor for life? A dark, existential funhouse? This game kept me the most tense I've ever been in a game since I first played Resident Evil 4 years back. It's creative, beautiful, and the sound design is a contender for the best I have ever experienced in a piece of media, and that's very important to me.

It's more adventure, less game if that influences any decisions, but there's jumping and thinking to be had. More than that, though, there's plenty of looking and hearing, and oh what plentiful sights and sounds there are.

There were parts of this game that I genuinely enjoyed. The visuals and the atmosphere are amazing, the environments vast and breathtaking and the lighting made it look great even without textures on anything. However, too much of this game has you stumbling around in the pitch dark or falling to your death because it's impossible to tell what the intended path is supposed to be.

I realize that exploration is part of the game, but when part of that exploration involves walking across a vast desert for several minutes and then figuring out that I'm /supposed/ to fling myself off of a deadly-looking cliff no different than countless others in the game, that's poor design. Or when you're running up a staircase into blackness for literally 3 minutes and you can't tell if the game is progressing or is pulling some Mario 64 Bowser stairs shenanigans (no shenanigans, btw, the staircase is literally 3 minutes of running long).

There were some decent puzzles along the way, but the vast majority of the game is running across huge expanses of grey nothing or wandering down samey-looking corridors and trying to find which pitch dark little alclove has a staircase hidden in it. Several times I found myself stuck and unable to proceed, only to find out that the solution was to stand around for 30 seconds or so until blocks appeared as platforms or a door opened to let me proceed.

I finished the game just because I wanted to know if there was more to the story, only to find that the game pretty much just ends. This game wants to be Antichamber, but lacks anything to keep me invested.

The good:

Nice visuals, great lighting engine
Controls are good.

The bad:

Dull, grey, featureless environments copy-pasted onto each other. There are huge environments, but they are completely empty and you will find yourself walking down the same identical staircase 8 times for no reason.

Aside from a handful of puzzles, most of the game is very boring and uneventful.

One chapter is literally running across a vast bridge for 2 minutes followed by running up a staircase for 3 minutes.

The level design is like an Escher painting sometimes, but the path forward is hidden in pitch blackness or drowned out in white bloom.

The breathing mechanic when running, while interesting, is completely unneeded in a game like this.

Summary:
I would not recommend this even on sale. There is nothing to drive you forward. The exploration is boring and unrewarding. The levels are huge but contain nothing and if you reach the end hoping to find some idea of what the whole game has been about, you will be immensly let down.

I really wanted to like this, but if I’m entirely honest with you, I’m not all that impressed.

I love first person puzzle games, and I love the abstract and the surreal. From the reviews I read, it seemed like it had enough to fit that bill. But in honesty it felt lacking to me.

It’s labelled quite clearly an “exploration” game, which that within itself is probably where my fault lies. You do explore surreal and abstract settings, but bar a very few odd bits and puzzles here and there, that is about it. The label “walking simulator” has been a tad bit controversial but if I had to label this game anything, it’d be that.

As far as I am aware, there is no story. It clues you in at the start that you’re a little girl and you’re lost. But if I’m remembering correctly that is pretty much it in terms of anything being handed to you. You can make of it what you will, and at times I love that kind of thing, but I don’t think they built much of a foundation for you to go off of.

The world in itself is massive. Or at least, it feels that way. Which, props to them, that’s what you want in an exploration game! But here is the catch: the world is pretty minimal and barren. This probably doesn’t apply to the people with more than four brain cells to rub together to create an attention span, but for me I was in awe with my surroundings for 5-10 minutes or so before I got bored of the emptiness and wanted to move on to the next setting.

It almost feels as if you spend half of the game within tight corridors and small spaces and the other half in massive open spaces. The changing between the two is quite nice as it switches things up a little, but for me both still had that empty, minimal and barren feeling to it.

Traversing the very big and barren surroundings you found yourself in was made more difficult by the fact you have to control your characters breathing whilst running.
Don’t get me wrong, I was and still am quite impressed by the originality of that feature and how they incorporated it into the more lively bits of the game. But taking 5 minutes to get up a staircase or being dumped into a massive desert and having to turtle your way around a massive world looking for what the hell to do next, wasn’t made any more fun with your character constantly needing you to click the mouse so she’d remember to breathe.

With all that said, I think the thing I was disappointed most about was the lack of puzzles. Again, it’s not labelled a puzzle game so I can’t moan too much. But I think some more puzzles in this game would have given it a lot more substance and made it a lot more enjoyable as well as bringing out its full potential as a game. “Kairo” for one being an example of that. It too is an abstract and surreal first person game with little direction or story. But in Kairo the puzzles are challenging and impressive enough to redeem the game. Or at least that was my opinion.

But alas! I feel like I’m moaning a lot here, so how about some positivity?

The graphics in this game are wonderful, it really is a beautiful game to look at and I was quite impressed with the art style. If this game has any redeeming qualities, the graphics are definitely it.

As I mentioned before, despite the breathing being a little tedious at times, it was impressive. Certain chapters of the game were very reliant on you being able to control your breathing to get by and the concept being used in that way was great. It bought out the games potential a little bit and made moments that were supposed to induce fear actually make you worry. I must have gotten through 90% of the game cool as a cucumber. Then the very last chapter had me genuinely scared and my heart going ten to the dozen. Which I can’t lie, I loved!

All in all this game is a nice experience, but I don’t feel like it has much to it. You can think of it what you will, but when I weigh up the pros and cons for myself, if I were to ask myself if it was worth sinking 6 hours into I’d have to reluctantly say no.
None the less, feel free to experience it for yourself! This isn’t a resounding “NO”. It’s not like I feel obliged to warn you about the forthcoming horror that awaits before you if you buy this game. If anything this is a just-teetering-over-the-line-towards-a-no kind of no.


TL;DR : This game is a walking simulator if anything, with no apparent story, minimal and barren surroundings and not much in terms of puzzle or challenge. Redeeming features if any being the graphics, which are beautiful and a unique feature, which includes you needing to control your breathing, which could have been used to bring out the games full potential. That being said, it’s a nice experience but in my opinion not one worth £10 and 6 hours playtime.

Ok.. When i randomed this little indie game to play i didn't expect much at all..

Seems just like a basic survival exploration/horror game but boy was i wrong...

You are a little girl that running in a mysterious building and falling a huge black/white world...
This is a game with very few colors and you have to help guide this little girl to her final destination...

Sound is wonderful, control is quite responsive... no bug that i can tell and fun light and darkness manipulation puzzles...
Nothing is very hard to solve but does take quite a bit to get use to.

As you play on.. strange emotion will begin to surface... emptyness.. darkness..,. despire... loneliness... terror of light.. terror of dark.. Lost..

I lost quite a few points of Sanity scores for myself by playing this game. And this game is not for the weak minded and weak souled...

Visual, sound and game play matched up quite perfectly to create this unique and awesome experience....

The end is just the beginning!!!

8.5/10.. wonderful indie game... not for everyone and really don't have any replay value.

NaissanceE is reminiscent of a dream, always seeming slightly intangible or abstract and never content with exploring one idea for too long. It feels as though you're journeying through some kind of limbo, with levels, designs, and ideas pulled out of the ether rather than being something consciously created. Environmental puzzles punctuate the experience, involving primarily working out how to get from point A to point B and some light platforming. If you're inclined towards more unique, thoughtful and solitary experiences I highly recommended it.

NaissanceE is a flawed game, but very much worth trying for the things it gets right.

Let's get the main problem out of the way first: the game consists almost exclusively of first-person platforming and the checkpoint placement could be better. Getting lost in its labyrinthine structures is not uncommon and some levels, particularly towards the end, can be only described as trolling the player, which is sometimes amusing, but sometimes not. It can get rather infuriating at times, and I leave it up to you whether you are willing to excuse that.

But you should. Because the game's levels, or rather the spaces that you get to explore, are phenomenal. Ranging from minimalist claustrophobic structures to vast city-sized complexes, at the same time alien and familiar, they are surprising, majestic and beautiful in their own stark monochromatic way. The stellar sound design also deserves a special mention, and so does the exquisite soundtrack, complementing the game's spaces in a harmony that's often unexpected, but always inspired. (The levels were built to accompany the already existing music rather than vice versa, and it really shows.) If you ever wanted to feel like a lone explorer of an abandoned titanic complex, built by unknown architects for a mysterious purpose, then look no further: this is a game for you.

Or let me put it this way: NaissanceE is the closest thing I've ever seen to the Rendezvous with Rama game that I've been dreaming about for years.

- Let's make this game unique and modern and arty!
- Great idea! Let's do something that nobody does!
- We will use no textures!
- Yes, without textures, player will see true nature of naked polygons!
- Modern!
- Arty!

This game has three components with varying quality.

Music is beautiful.
Visuals are arty.
Puzzles and game design are meh.

Goal of the game is to find a way out. It requires coordination when you have to run and jump, no brain power needed.

Some locations are poorly designed. If you miss correct turn first time you pass it - second time this place might be in complete darkness, making navigation difficult. And when I say "complete darkness" - I mean only black pixels on your screen.

Buy it at sale, or if you are big fan of exploration genre.

I would give it thumbs up only for the music, but there are better way to listen music.
Search for Thierry Zaboïtzeff on the net. His work is fantastic.

Si estas leyendo esto, puede que sea porque probablemente estes pensando en comprarte este juego, asi que dejame que intente guiarte por el buen camino.
NaissanceE es una de esas joyitas las cuales te encuentras por Steam, le echas un ojo, miras videos, buscas analisis, etc... y aun asi no sabes que hacer. Compralo.
NaissanceE es un juego que te hace sentir un monton de cosas a la vez, juega muy bien contigo, haciendo que a cada paso que des, te sientas completamente observado, haciendote creer que al doblar esa esquina, un screamer o alguna otra cosa te saltara encima y acabara contigo, pero esa ocasión nunca llega, lo unico que perdura es esa sensación, durante toooodo el recorrido.
En algunas ocasiones puede que pienses que te vas a volver loco, o que te va a dar un maldito ataque epileptico, asi es como el juego te dice que sigas adelante.
Recomiendo este juego? Completamente, pero solo a esa gente paciente, con la capacidad de pasarse horas caminando, intentando descubrir que pasa a su alrededor, durante todo el recorrido.
Saludos y que el Raptor os bendiga a todos

NaissanceE es un juego distinto a cualquier otro y que con un poco de habilidad puede terminarse en menos de 1 hora. Claro, a mi me llevo 3 porque soy de esas personas que exploran hasta el ultimo rincón del juego.
Nos ponemos en el papel de una chica que logra escapar de una especie de "energía" y para avanzar (que es nuestro único objetivo en el juego) deberemos superar distintos puzzles sencillos mediante las luces y sombras que el juego nos interpone.

Cabe destacar que las dimensiones y las estructuras de este juego son colosales y si bien no posee texturas, compensa esto con los sonidos y la ambientación que sin lugar a dudas son maravillosas.
Naissancee es de esos juegos que hay que experimentar por uno mismo, donde nos perderemos en un gigantesco universo y sentiremos totalmente solos y diminutos, mientras tratamos de encontrar muchas respuestas.

Al juego lo recomiendo, pero no creo que valga la pena pagar 15 dolares por el. Yo diría que lo compren si lo ven en una rebaja al 75%.

Gracias a Gamer2012 que fue quien me regalo el juego!

Nota final: 8/10

NaissanceE desde la intro del propio juego hasta el final nos propone un mundo del que no nos van a explicar absolutamente nada. Es lo más parecido a enfrentarse a una consola de Linux sin tener ni ♥♥♥♥ idea de nada nunca. Naissancee es un juego duro, y no tanto por su dificultad en las plataformas, sino porque enfrentarse al sentimiento de soledad, indefensión, y desorientación, sumido en un WTF constante, no es ni mucho menos sencillo. NaissanceE consigue que tu cabeza funcione en modo supervivencia, es decir, es necesario agudizar todos los sentidos, tanto los ojos como los oidos… pero Naissancee te tratará muy mal, y te hará sentir imbécil todo el rato, y eso está muy bien, porque hará que cuando os enfrentéis a cualquier otro juego os parezca un paseo.

En la pantalla no vayáis a esperar algún medidor de salud, botón, energía de algún tipo o alguna explicación de porque sucede lo que sucede, si esto mata o no mata, si tengo que ir por ahí o no. La respuesta de Naissancee a todo esto es, “BUSCATE LA VIDA CHAVAL, ESTO ES ASI, ACOSTUMBRATE”, esto es lo que me decían a mi el año que estuve viviendo en Inglaterra cuando me quejaba de la lluvia interminable y de las pocas horas de sol en invierno. Una frase que me ha acompañado durante el resto de mi vida.

Volviendo a NaissanceE, concretamente sobre el punto “si tengo que ir por ahí o no”, a NaissanceE le va a dar tanto igual lo que hagas con tu vida que podrás perderte como un perro por cualquier sitio que veas con una luz, incluso te indicará que hay que ir por lugares por los que no hay que ir, y por los que te costará mucho volver a donde estabas. La sensación constante de que te has perdido resulta agobiante, y si consigues saber por donde tienes que ir, te encontraras con unos muros que se llaman DISEÑO DE NIVELES confeccionados con mucho mimo y muy mala leche. Nada es lo que parece, y nada suele ser evidente… Hasta que empiezas a entender la lógica dentro del caos.

SIGUE LA LUZ… O NO

El idioma de NaissanceE son las luces y las sombras. Utilizando la luz y las sombras NaissanceE te habla como si fuera una persona muda que tiene que entenderse a través de gestos. La gran parte de las mecánicas del juego se basan en luces y sombras: luces para decirte por donde es seguro ir, en teoría, y sombras para ocultar o mostrar elementos. Además de la capacidad narrativa de estos elementos, también se utilizan para confeccionar puzzles que pueden hacer que os caigáis de ♥♥♥♥ y tengáis que ir a llorar a youtube como auténticas colegialas cagadas de miedo. En ocasiones os encontraréis puntos de luz que tendréis que perseguir si queréis continuar jugando, pero tendréis que ir corriendo, y regular la respiración para no parar de golpe y perder la luz que os lleva a la salida… o a otro lugar al menos.

En este sentido, el diseño de niveles del juego hace que parezca normal mirar hacia arriba y hacia abajo mientras babeas, y te planteas seriamente empapelar tu casa con pantallazos del juego. Además no te preocupes, que después de un rato lograrás ver por donde quiere NaissanceE que vayas, y una vez más te sentirás como un ratoncito de laboratorio, sin quesito… A veces todo es oscuridad y no ves nada, a veces todo es luz y tampoco ves nada. Todo el entorno es precioso, y aún así estas jodido, porque tienes la sensación de que te están ocultando información, y que no sabes nada de nada de donde estás, que no hay reglas establecidas para que las plataformas se muevan, que no hay patrones de diseño, que te caes y mueres. Todo esto lo convierte en un ejemplo a seguir y una referencia.

ESCUCHA

Cuando el juego no puede hablar con luces y sombras, lo hace con el sonido. Para los amantes del sonido como es mi caso, el juego es una orgía. El sonido entra como un personaje que va contigo de la mano, cuando todo se apaga el sonido te lleva de la mano a donde debes, cuando algo te amenaza, sabes que te amenaza, y sabes por donde, sin necesidad de recurrir a clichés de músicas. El diseño de sonido consiste en crear sonidos que no existen y aplicarlos donde corresponda, parece una tarea sencilla, pero en Naissancee es muy importante jugar con cascos con la mayor calidad posible, porque será la forma en la que el juego nos va a hablar literalmente y mostrarnos de qué son capaces. Igual que las las luces y las sombras hablan, el sonido y el silencio también hablan. Los silencios te dejarán desconcertado, tanto que a veces pensarás que has encontrado un bug en el juego.

VIVO

He hablado todo el rato de NaissanceE como si fuera una persona y no un juego. El motivo es que igual que en Dead Space o en Alien el octavo pasajero la nave es un personaje más, un ente vivo que interactúa, en Naissancee es el propio juego el que actúa como un ser vivo que quiere contar una historia, y que igual que hay personas que no pueden hacerlo porque no tienen voz, NaissanceE nos cuenta LA NADA, y para ello nos sitúa en su mismo corazón, para que experimentemos la soledad, la sensación de estar perdido, pero ni siquiera nos da una golosina para seguir adelante, así que nos hace plantearnos una y otra vez, ¿quieres seguir sufriendo? ¿quieres seguir aguantando? ¿llegarás hasta el final?, ¿Y SI AL FINAL NO HAY NADA DE NADA VALDRÁ LA PENA EL CAMINO?.

No te deja igual...Un viaje extraño y filosófico entre luces y sombras. No es un juego al uso. Poco recomendado para la gente de acción. Una experiencia artística que nos adentra en una estructura ancenstral y mistica en un viaje de exploración a través de ella...Espero encontrar la salida.

¿Como definir NaissanceE?
Se podria definir como una especie de mezcla entre "Inception", "Echochrome" y el plataformeo de Portal. Estas atrapado en lo que pareces ser una especie de nave nodriza y huyendo de algo, o al menos es lo que aparenta la banda sonora ya que esta formada por una musica estridente que te pondrá de los nervios mas de una vez.
¿Merece la pena?
De rebajas o en un Bundle, si. A precio normal, no.
El juego se completa en 3 horas y curiosamente deja un sabor de boca que hace que quieras mas juegos como este en tu biblioteca, ademas que es un soplo de aire fresco respecto a los actuales lanzamientos. Si te gusta la exploracion y los "mind♥♥♥♥s", no te arrepentirás.
