FATALE 1.1, and Linux too!

2 марта 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!

Об игре

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.

Fatale это жаркий микс из Библии, Уайльда и Поп-культуры.
Вы примерите на себя роль Иоана Крестителя.До его трагической кончины(ожидая казни в мрачной темнице) и после, в состоянии эфимерном(наблюдая за красавицей Саломеей)
Интересная особенность игры в том, что здесь присутствуют элементы современного быта(вроде плееров, спичек или летних теннисных туфель)Можно догадаться, что авторы таким образом частично переносят историю мужчины, опьяненного любовью, и алчной, жестокой женщины в наше время, рассказывая историю удивительной человеческой природы.

Не назову это даже игрой.Вы должны увидеть это сами, чтобы понять, о чем я говорю.

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.

Not a game.

This isn't a game. This is some kind of pretentious interactive experience with obtuse narrative and no goal at all. It's just about 30 minutes of roaming around two places, reading a few texts and completing one minigame. It tries to tell a story, yes, but it's terrible at it.

Technically is also quite terrible, but that doesn''t even matter. It could have Crysis 3 graphics, and still would be terribly annoying.

If you wanna try it, bear in mind that this is not a game, and wait until it's on sale. Then it will still be a pretentious waste, but a cheap pretentious waste.

Really just the kind of wannabe arthouse game with no substance. If you're into this sort of thing, there are better options. Definitely one to pass by.

I got this exploration game because of "The Path" being an awesome game and the screenshots look gorgeous in "Fatale". Apparently, my high expectations for this was shut down with wonky controls and nothing much to explore within the landscape. Yes, the scenery was beautiful, yet that's just about it. This could have had more potential...but apparently this potential wasn't what this was going for. If you miss picking up this game on Steam, then don't worry about it. It's one of those games that would go in the garbage bin and no one would care for it.
