このゲームについて

"Salomé, Salomé, dance for me. I pray thee dance for me. I am sad to-night. Yes, I am passing sad to-night. When I came hither I slipped in blood, which is an evil omen; and I heard, I am sure I heard in the air a beating of wings, a beating of giant wings. I cannot tell what they mean .... I am sad to-night. Therefore dance for me. Dance for me, Salomé, I beseech you. If you dance for me you may ask of me what you will, and I will give it you, even unto the half of my kingdom."​

Salome was 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.

Explore a living tableau filled with references to the legendary tale of Salome 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.​

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 hover over them 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.

Fatale is played through first person 3D navigation but its controls may appear somewhat unconventional to the seasoned gamer. ASWD + mouselook navigation can be enabled in the Options menu.

FPS視点よくわからないゲーです

完全に雰囲気ゲーでゲーム内容があまりにも薄すぎて、
内容を説明するだけでネタバレになってしまいますが

説明すると、
最初は牢屋で文字を読む、次に飛び回って火を消す、最後に踊っている人を見るゲームです。
それだけです

雰囲気はというと、なんか中世の不思議な幻想的な世界観で
まあなかなか悪くはないかなーと思って飛び回っていたら
王女が腰にipodをつけていたのでおすすめしません。

This game is like a vision, a dream. It is quite short, and confusing, and technically limited, but is intriguing, and beautiful.

Point & click exploration, with a pinch of Oscar Wilde.

The controls are odd (even frustrating), but this somehow lends to the style. And if I understand the story correctly, you have died, so it works that you can't control your new form very well.

Not a must-see, but I found it a tasty little treat.

Man... This game is one of the most pretentious games ever made. Extremely pretentious. Which is not surprising because this is developed by Tale of Tales team who is known for being extremely pretentious.

Anyway, the controls are a huge steaming pile of ♥♥♥♥. They are so broken that they nearly made the game very unplayable.

Also, what is the point? What is the story? What was I doing in this game? What... Right, it's "art" and "emotional"? Get your hipster and emasculated ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t outta here.

Overall, this game is utter trash.

This was definitely more engaging than I expected it to be! And I actually came out of out knowing more about the story of Salome than I went in with. It was still kind of dull overall though so I can't recommend it to others.

I'm recommedning the game, but don't even consider buying it unless you understand what it is. Putting that into words is a bit of a challenge though. As concisely as possible, I might describe it as: "A single, one-hour, self-guided exhibit in the local museum of contemporary art." As you might expect from that summary, I'm not trying to claim that it's for everyone. But an unusual way to relax in a single-sitting.

10 minutes of stuck in a room with poor controls, 20 minutes floating around clicking on lights while listening to whispering before the screen goes white, giving you only one option: quit. Start the game again, watch a dance for 5 minutes, then the options present themselves to restart or quit.

Do I recommend it? The visuals are odd, very much an "art project" in an artsy-fartsy kind of way. In that sense, I give it a "sure, why not."

Games as an art form!

I'm going to say this again, in case anyone hasn't read my reviews before - I friggin' love art games. This one may be the arty-est. Well, actually, I'm not going to say that. The difference between the arty-est and farty-est of games and this is that this has some elements that can actually cause you to see it as a game. Tale of Tales isn't known for being the most accessible of game developers, at least where this sort of thing is concerned.

What's good about it?

The graphics are gorgeous in a primitive way, and I would compare them to The Path (another ToT title) in terms of actual quality. As always, the soundtrack is superb in getting across what it wants to, but I can't help but be upset that this isn't a DLC - because I would probably pay a dollar for it.

The soundtrack is the best part of it, and it bears mentioning because it carries a strange post-Swans Jarboe/Tom Waits in an ashram feel to it oddly plopped into some nameless middle-Eastern country and peppered with some modern instruments to make your liver quiver. I half expected a duet between the indie art goddess and the god of Bruce Springsteen's career to come leaping out of my speakers at the same time, causing a bizarre existential crisis that would coexist with my current one, and ultimately lead to me going crazy.

Things I didn't like...

The fact that I do not need Tom Waits and Jarboe to sing a duet and drive me to the point of an existential crisis, because if I had to light one more friggin' candle, I was going to light my own hair on fire and scream for someone to hold the nameless unexplaind darkness over it to put it out. Then, I would dance traditionally without a shirt on so I could lead the non-Oscar Wilde reading bible crowd to describe it as, "erotic," and attempt to censor it.

Final Verdict:

Look, this game is worth your time and your buy, especially if you want to be in awe for an hour or so of your life, but if you're not into art games and weird clanky noises laid underneath of some of the oddest non-standard chord progressions, you're not going to like it. For me this is a solid 7.5/10, and as an art piece I'll probably revisit it later, but it's not something I'm going to sit in front of my computer and think, "Oh, I have an extra few hours to kill, maybe I'll just open Fatale and put out some stupid candles."

This isn't a game, nor is it some cool piece of work. It's very boring, just move around and bad graphics.

This is the first "game" that I wanted to truly delete from my steam account.

Fatale is an extremely short and boring work, I won't say "game", because it basically lacks any gameplay. No story, no gameplay, no nothing, but some graphics and clicking. Very disappointing experience and a waste of money. It's nothing in comparison to The Path, which made me buy this game as I expected something similar. Do not buy.

A poetic experience that isn't a game. Even if it was free, you would be disappointed, unless you like walking around and discovering text floating in the air.

オスカー・ワイルドの代表作サロメを音と映像で楽しめる作品
ある程度原作に忠実なのだが
基本的にTale of Talesの芸術性が爆発している
そのため真のToTファン向けとなっており、逆に初心者がプレイすると頭がおかしくなって顔がToTになる

サロメ体感ゲーム!
原作を把握してないと困惑することばかりかと思われます
そして、ところどころにあるサロメらしからぬものに想像力を掻き立てられます

This is not a game. It doesn't play like a game. Do not buy this expecting a "progression", or puzzles, or a clear and obvious story. If you're wanting a vide-game, I don't recommend that you buy this at all.

This more like a small art exhibit. Like the description states, it is intended as a "living tableau". If you're willing to pay $7.00 to see an interactive art exhibit inspired by the story of John the Baptist, Salome and the Dance of the Seven Veils, then buy this and enjoy. If you're looking for a video game to play and win, I don't recommend purchasing this.

While turning Wilde's "Salome" into a short art video game might seem like a strange undertaking, I think the play's thematic content could provide enough material to merit worthwhile exploration via the language of game mechanics. However, FATALE's message is ultimately muddled. Rather than grabbing onto the play's theme most suited to exploration in video game form (e.g. its obsession with the danger of "looking" and its positioning of the aesthetic gaze as, paradoxically, both creative/reverent and destructive/dehumanizing), FATALE instead spends most of its 20 minute running time on plot and a conceptually murky sequence where the player extinguishes candles on a static 3D tableau.

Thus, ultimately the game plays like a hollow bit of 3D diorama--with the candles just being an excuse to get the player to look at different parts of the scene. An interesting and often pretty experiment, but ultimately vague and underwhelming, both as a game and as a commentary on Wilde's play.

It's "art."

I have no problems, nay, I *love* artistic games.

Except this isn't a game. It's hardly even interactive art.

It's just..."art". The kind of art that needs quotations around it.

Just don't bother.

(I played in off-line mode, so the play time should be 3hrs)
To the haters: Does it make you feel better if you don't consider it as a video game?

Fatale is still my favorite, because I think it's the best example of interpretation and it shows new possibilities of art pieces in multimedia, I'd like to see more this kind but not labeled as games. I said it’s a powerful poem when I first played it years ago, Fatale is belongs to those “serious, deep and sad things” I always like. It’s perfect in its own, but yes it’s horrible.

And they updated it this year make it has another feeling, more emphasis on the text by Oscar Wilde, more understanding the story. I appreciate they updated those old artworks, it made me think they still keep their early ideas of making digital artworks, though I know they’re going to change under the big pressure of contemporary game circles, obviously people have strong opinion about what is a game and what is not, then refuse to accept new possibilities, it's just a wrong place for non-games. Even I feel the pressure writing this review, too many people rate down and give negative comments.

I love all of ToT's artworks. Steam is a place for mainstream gamers not a place for serious conversations, but I have to say a few words in the end, peoples who describe them as "pretentious" please read more information before judging. They're never pretentious because they know what they are doing, their works are true and explicable, no one "trying to seem more intellectuall" than they really are.
