FATALE 1.1, and Linux too!

2 март 2014

FATALE has been updated to version 1.1 which includes bug fixes and graphical updates to make the game more gorgeous than ever. Now the etherial whispers are subtitled to help you enjoy Oscar Wilde's text. We've launched a new website for the game at http://tale-of-tales.com/Fatale.

If you run Linux we have ported the game to your platform. We've tested it in Ubuntu, but if you have any problems please let us know.

The amazing Cara Ellision has recently written an editorial about the game on Rock Paper Shotgun that is well worth a read too: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2014/02/28/s-exe-tale-of-tales-fatale-nsfw/

Enjoy!
Tale of Tales

Относно играта

Explore a living tableau filled with references to the legendary tale and enjoy the moonlit serenity of a fatal night in the orient. Fatale offers an experimental play experience that stimulates the imagination and encourages multiple interpretations and personal associations.

Fatale is played through first person 3D navigation but its controls were designed to minimize the risk of motion sickness. As a result, it may appear somewhat unconventional to the seasoned gamer. ASWD + mouselook navigation can be enabled in the Options menu.

Salome is a first century Judean princess mentioned in the Christian Bible by Matthew and by Mark. But it is Oscar Wilde's 19th century play Salome that really inspired Fatale. In the Bible, Salome is a child who dances for King Herod and asks the head of John the Baptist as a reward. In Wilde's version, Salome falls in love with the prophet. He rejects her and she has him executed. The play ends with her kissing the lips of his decapitated head.

Most of Fatale takes place in the aftermath of this event, when all has turned quiet and the moon brings comfort to troubled hearts.

How to play Fatale:

  • The Cistern: Think of Fatale as a role playing game. We will leave it to your imagination who you are playing. You find yourself in a prison. And the distant sound of music plays overhead.
  • The Terrace: On the terrace your experience is disembodied.
  • FLY: Clicking with the LEFT MOUSE BUTTON you can move forward.
  • RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON: Lets you travel backwards. You will see things differently if you hold either of the mouse buttons down.
  • FLOAT: Use the MIDDLE MOUSE BUTTON you float freely forward.
  • CONTROL: Hold down the SPACEBAR to bring up the aureola. This is your inventory of scenes you can revisit and interact with. Click the letters to return to a still scene. If a space is blank, clicking on it becomes a hint to where you should travel next.
  • EXAMINE: The lights on the terrace invite you to block them out. From scene to scene, you have various options for interaction. Your cursor keys pan the view, click & drag allows for camera rotation, and sometimes rolling over or clicking items in these scenes can lead to surprising results.
  • EXPLORE: Above all, since this experience makes few demands, take your time. Notice the small details. Listen to the whispers and echoes. Therein, lies the joy. Allow yourself to fall in love with Salome, now you have all the time in the world.
  • The Dance: An epilogue which appears on restart after each complete playthrough.
  • ESC: If you need help, the ESC key leads you to a summary of context and controls.

Genre: Interactive Fiction

Summary: Explore a 3D diorama of the tale of Salome from the New Testament.

Pros:
- The scene in the cistern is oozing with atmosphere.

Cons:
- There is little instruction regarding the mechanic (orb gathering) that advances the plot, which itself is obtrusive and unintuitive.
- The 3D models are average.

Neutral Points:
- As the summary suggests, you do little but manipulate the camera to look at stuff. This isn't a game, so make sure you're informed before buying it.
- Biblical quotes that pop-up are less meaningful unless you are familiar with the tale of Salome (or religious).
- The motion-captured dance in the epilogue is rather generic. Some people may like it but I've seen too many similar high school performances to be impressed.

I saw a link that said, "None of your friends have played this game. Tell them why they should". My answer to that is they shouldn't. I can think of better wastes of money, and seriously, if you wanna see the boobs in this game that badly, you can look at them for free on the FATALE Steam forum homepage because, ironically enough, every person who has played this game and claims it's "SOOO DEEP OMG YOU C4n'T UNDERsTAnD" have considerately taken it upon themselves to post pictures of said deep boobs from every single angle imaginable within the game.

I am a fan of Tale of Tales games, and also a fan of strange games in general, especially admirable looking ones. I liked the game very much, especially the second chapter, but, really, it's a very special genre, and it can't just be taken by everyone. Salome, by herself, was a horrible person, irrational one, partially mad and erratic. This line feels really good in this game. You watch the story of her madcap deed, while Salome stays romantic and proudful, and that is amazing and shivering. I recommend this game as an interactive painting of the story, with which you should be familiar. Than you will find it perfect.

If you like story games, this has some interesting stuff to it. I tried to pick up all the games (on Steam) by this company. I leave and come back. I really don't know what I am doing, but exploring is the point.

Buggy, pretentious, non-game that gets lost in whatever message it's trying to convey. Why did I ever buy this?
