Montas Upgrade to Unreal Engine 4



Thank you for your continued support and patience, we want you to know that we are making incredible progress within the new engine. After the first release of Montas in Unreal Engine 3 on Early Access, we have been working on the final version of the game in Unreal Engine 4.

We want to release and test a full prequel to the final version of the game in Unreal Engine 4 while still in Early Access before advancing to a full release. This prequel content includes story and accurately reflects what we want the final game to be.

Release Date TBA with Screenshots coming soon of the new levels previewed in the above image.

Story of Montas


You wake up at the desk of Joseph Walker, an accountant working for a firm in the city of Montas.

Normal life for Joseph has become a distant memory, haunted by nightmares of events that didn't happen, and cursed with unsettling hallucinations wherever he goes. As a result of stress and anxiety, Joseph is now an alcoholic.

Paranoia is growing, and the situation worsens when police begin to question locals about recent murders in the area. What is happening to Joseph?... and what is Montas hiding?

Montas is a alright game, but needs to have much more content and more patches as it is quite buggy.

Montas is survival horror game that really focuses on immersing you with its atmosphere. As you explore the environments you can discover multiple paths that can lead you to hidden secrets and content. I was honestly paranoid and scared from the very start even when nothing had attacked me yet. Eventually you will come up against enemies that will chase you down Amnesia style and you must avoid them. This game is currently in early access so it's not a complete game and I did come across glitches and annoying level design flaws but that will be fixed during early access I'm sure. I really recommend trying Montas out for yourself if you enjoy horror games.

This is just an introduction to the world where the game takes place and if you want to see more you can watch the first 40 min of my playthrough here:

Montas has all the right ingredients to be a great horror game with a lot of exploration to do, platforming and puzzle solving.
As an early access game the developers did a very good job not to spoil the story much but it still gives you a lot to do in the game. The city is very much open with plenty of dark corners and secrets, you can go wherever you want, if you are not too afraid to go there...
The atmosphere is amazingly creepy, most of the time you have no idea of what's going on and what's real and what's not and if you are dreaming or awake and that makes you fear the game and trust nothing in the game.
Lighting is great, sound is also good, there are a few glitches some frame rate drops, some animations also need polishing but this is still a beta.

Have in mind that this is not the final product but if you are an horror fan you should at least try it.

Early Access Review
EDIT: I've changed this review because It lacks of detailss.
###########################################
First, THIS IS NOT A FINAL PRODUCT... IT'S A DEMO. A similar demo to Stanley Parable Demo which is totally different from full version. Demo may has barely connection to full version. Everything can get changed.

Second, game is full of bugs and glitches. If someone who wants to experience a rather normal gameplay I strongly suggest to wait. You can get stuck on the levels forcing you to restart whole game from zero.

They left a clear note about it: "WARNING: This version of Montas is unfinished. Only purchase if you are a fan of horror and wish to support the developers."

###BE AWARE OF GLITCHED GIANT COCKROACHES####

Third, game suffers from massive frame drop caused by poorly optimized map/engine. Not exactly sure where is fault.

Fourth, game promises are real, you can explore the map as you like and get hidden jumpscares but you can often get out of the map by "not properly" exploring it.



THIS IS NOT A FINAL PRODUCT, CONSIDER TWICE BEFORE BUYING!
(P.S| I may edit this review again If there will be big changes)

Early Access Review
EDIT: November 19

Though the game is early access, it's really worth buying.

PROS
-Dynamic atmosphere. Especially when you set the game to top notch settings. If you have Oculus Rift, terrifying terrific.
-Great ambience. Sometimes the music and the sounds get me instead. Imagine going down a corridor and constantly hearing "Someone's here. Leave." whispered to your ears. Get a good pair of headphones!
-Very immersive. There's a whole town waiting to be explored. I haven't mentioned the sewer system, have I?
-Scary. Yes, scary. About the game's horror-o-meter, besides only a few cheap scares, there are elevators, hallways, and illuminating corners. Plus, as I mentioned the sound effect is enough to bring you a good horrifying experience. There are enemies, too. The cool thing is that there's little time for you to react when seeing enemies, and they usually appear out of nowhere. Test your guts, and your mind.
CONS
-The game is still in the testing phase. That gives it bugs like frame drops. Frame drops are significantly reduced as of update #7.
-Light effects are not as good. Sometimes, as you go around corners, the lights go out. This is more of a minor annoyance, really.
-Enemies are not too smart. Just run like hell away from them and you'll be fine. I really expected something more challenging.
-The character moves at a snail pace.
-It's pretty difficult to move things around.
-Inventory system is still incomplete.
-Some market-sold computers might not be able to handle the graphics. I test the game on Intel HD Graphics 4000 and Intel Core i7 2.00GHz processor, which runs smoothly but gets choppy in certain highly-detailed and illuminated areas.

Overall: 8.5 out of 10. You'll just have to see for yourself.
