Bien trop court, Spate nous vend un ticket pour le délire psychédélique imaginé par l'artiste graphique Eric Provan. L'ambiance y est particulièrement bien réalisée, aussi bien du point de vue visuel que de la musique, et elle est couplée avec un scénario simple qui fait presque son boulot et qui se paie le luxe d'une narration de qualité. Le jeu aurait mérité une ou deux mécaniques de gameplay vraiment originales pour transcender l'expérience, déjà esthétiquement singulière.

Jeu de plates-formes insatisfaisant pour ma part.

L'atmosphère, l'OST et le visuel du titre sont réussis mais malheureusement, le gameplay inexistant gâche le plaisir de jeu. On ne fait que courir 80% du temps avec quelques acrobaties ou actions pas vraiment transcendantes de ci de là.

Dommage !

As someone who helped kickstart this game I have to say I am pretty disappointed in it. While the art is beautiful and the story is alright, the gameplay is virtually non-existant. The movement is too slow and of the 84 minutes it took me to complete the game, probably half it was spent just pressing right and literally nothing else. Some of that was to allow you to hear the exposition without distraction, but far too much didn't even have that.

This really should have been a short film rather than a game.

The game is actually an art experience. The gameplay is casual but carefull because you get easily distracted by the amazing graphics. The music fit perfectly the atmosheres.

This little journey is worth each penny of it.

I played it on gnu/linux, the only little thing I did not like: the game did not run with the radeon open source drivers.

Before I start this game review I will tell you a little bit of info about the game creator Eric Provan.

Mr. Provan has a lot of experience in animation since he worked at Walt Disney Studios, Jim Henson's Creature Shop & Sony Animation so artistically he knows what he is doing but anyways I'll try my best to explain the highs & lows on this little game.

Spate is a steampunk themed run & jump platformer that surprisingly tells a good story (It also has a badass narrator) about alcohol addiction or the fact that any drug can make you see crazy ♥♥♥♥ but be aware the game does more storytelling than actual gameplay so I'm just telling you now in case you are thinking of buying it (Think of it like Dear Esther meets a platformer). Mike Raznik's haunting/lonely orchestra soundtrack is one of the best videogame soundtracks I have ever listened too in a while with steady perfection with the violin, cello, bassoon & the oboe with a sprinkle of some vocals added in the mix (Give a look at his music it's ♥♥♥♥ing awesome http://mikeraznick.bandcamp.com/ you won't regret it). Artistically it's like being in a horror museum with weird content like a green vulture head with orange stripes for example so if you like weird art Eric Provan is your guy (I have no words to say how amazing the artstyle is).

I'm not going to explain the story much because I suck at explaining stories but I will say that it involves a depressed dad (Detective Bluth) who lost his wife through his absinthe addiction & his daughter is dead so it's just an idea of what some of the story is. The biggest con I can give this game is the option menu because it really doesn't offer much besides rebinding your controls for example & the gameplay might be a turn off for most people because of how simple it is. (I finished the game in 1 hour & the game tries to be more interesting with the use of side effects from drinking absinthe, using a cannon or driving a submarine but the gameplay feels boring/bland to be honest)

Overall this little game delivered amazing music, a good story & some kickass art so I hope you can support Mr. Provan's 1st game.

Additional Notes:

I'm going to promote some of Eric's inspirations for making this game so make sure to check them out. (Here is his IMDB profile if you don't believe he worked in the film business http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2846786/ & honestly anyone who has a history of working with films automatically gets money from me)
