“And most importantly, if you like a good mystery with awesome monsters that will have you jumping out of your seat, play this game.”
Biasbear

“That said, the game is damned creepy pretty much from the get-go, and while it may not make you scream, it’s got some of the most creative and memorable monsters I’ve ever faced in a horror game. They’re beautiful, in a nightmarish sort of way, and you’ll be seeing them in your head long after you stop playing.”
Games in Asia

“You may be surprised (and more than a little pleased) to learn that there’s not a single mention of the zombie apocalypse. The dead remain inanimate, safely ensconced six feet under. Motte Island has chosen a far great adversary for you to contend with, one we’re sure will strike fear into your hearts.”

Another greenlighter, but it looks very promising. It has nice hand-drawn graphics and beautifull music.
Storiline is designing from the very start. Controls are strange but at least you should give it a try.

Motte Island is a top down survival horror game that took some inspiration from the classic Resident Evil/Silent Hill. Since there aren't many top-down horror games I can think of (or any at all, really), it's hard to compare it to any specific game. My playtime was about 5 hours, but on average it'd probably take around 3-5 hours to complete.

The story, atmosphere, and music are actually pretty decent for a $5 retail priced game (which you can get even cheaper during a sale). The script has a lot of broken english in it, it can mostly be understood but all of it could have been easily fixed before release if they had anyone with a decent understanding of english on the dev team. The broken english can cause some of the objectives to be a tad bit confusing, because they aren't explained fully.

Most of the enemies have some fairly unique designs to them. If you're terrified of bugs.. then you probably shouldn't play this game as a great deal of the monsters are designed based on them. This actually made the game creepier to me, since I'm not a fan of insects lol.

The combat could use a lot of work. You can only equip one weapon at a time, and there's no option to store them, so if you want a new weapon, you have to drop your old one. This can be frustrating when you want to use a gun. There are 3 guns (pistol, shotgun, rifle), and all 3 have very limited ammo. 2 of the guns aren't that easy to find, and I couldn't find the pistol in my playthrough. I don't think there's more than 30 rounds for each gun in the game, and the guns seemed pretty useless against normal enemies (they're alright for boss fights.. but there aren't many situations you'd use them in). There are 2 FPS sequences that seem really forced, so the game isn't entirely top-down.

Game is very dependent on stealth. If you sneak up on an enemy from behind and melee them, it's a one hit kill. This is the best way to play the game as it takes much longer to kill an enemy if you're spotted. I personally stuck with the machette and samurai sword for most of the game.. There is a decent variety of melee weapons in the game, but I found that quick charge attack + fast normal attack is the best combination (for me at least), so most of the other weapons weren't as useful.

Navigation can be somewhat frustrating, as there's no map of the island in the game. This is silly, because some of the buildings have maps for them, which have a much simpler layout, but the maps that you do find can't be saved to your inventory.. so you basically have to memorize them. At one point in the game, I got stuck for a while because I couldn't find the cemetery. If I had a map, that wouldn't have been an issue. Another feature that wasn't polished is the health bar, it covers the entire bottom of the screen. Surely they could have made it noticeable enough while taking up less screen space.

Overall, if you love survival horror I'd recommend giving the game a shot, just set your expectations low. I probably would have paid a dollar for it if I hadn't gotten it for free.

EDIT: This review is based on the first build of the game, any future updates aren't represented in my review.

Okay, I'm gonna do something I don't normally do, and write a review before playing this game to its conclusion. I just can't help myself, I feel inspired. Or, In Motte-speak: "Help myself I can't, I feel inspire."

The first problem with this game is the apparent lack of anyone on the design team who can speak English. This I don't mind, but surely someone in their broader social circle could have offered to do a quick proof-read of the game before releasing it commercially to the world at large? Hell, they could've asked the average six year-old on the internet...pretty sure they've worked out by now that "Maids are fight each other but suddenly stopped and tremble in the presence of Sarah" isn't a proper sentence. You do get used to it, though...we've all seen the Star Wars films, after all. It's just a shame that Yoda-speak isn't exactly conducive to maintaining a mood of spooky unease. But this is hardly the game's biggest impediment to greatness.

The 2D, top-down perspective in a horror game is a brilliant idea. And when this game gets dark, and the flashlight comes out, it's definitely some eerie ♥♥♥♥. But in broad daylight the character animations look, well, about as good as those in Hotline Miami. The only thing is, Hotline Miami was an incredibly fast-paced, splatter-happy ode to visual crudeness and uber-difficulty which seemed to know precisely what it was trying to achieve. Which WASN'T "scaring" you...which, granted, this game still does surprisingly well at times, mostly on account of the aforementioned flashlight effect and the frankly awesome soundtrack. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that the super-disturbing soundtrack pretty much SAVES this game.

What about the gameplay, you ask? Well, it's nice enough, especially if you're a fan of action-adventure orientated "survival horror" games of the Silent Hill / Resident Evil ilk, as I surely am. But there's a LOT of back-tracking, and after a while you get good enough at simply AVOIDING the endlessly-respawning nasties, and the combat is mostly a case of finding one good, accurate spot to stand and mashing the mouse buttons. I even managed to kill the first Boss with a baseball bat, 'cause I haven't yet managed to pick up a gun despite all the bullets I'm now carrying...I mean, I keep killing bad guys carrying guns which they shoot at me, but for some reason my character seems uninterested in picking any of these pistols up. I assume I haven't missed an all-important gun placement elsewhere, but I'm not even sure it matters if I have, since I can apparently kick Boss butt well enough with a melee weapon.

Just in case it's sounding like I'm not digging this game, let me assure you I actually am. And I'm assuming it's not gonna be the longest game in history, so I probably WILL see it through to its conclusion. What am I gonna find there? Well, probably nothing too great story-wise, 'cause despite some early promise the story seems to be getting sillier by the hour. But it's got mood aplenty, despite the aforementioned problems, and the moth-y motifs and mysterious island setting certainly make for good horror thematics. I think it might be overly generous to say that this gets three-quarters of the way to its potential, but let's be nice and say it gets two-thirds of the way. Hence the number below, slightly rounded up in the interests of encouraging future product from these admittedly promising designers. Happy bug-swatting.

Verdict: 7/10.

A Great Top-Down 2D Horror

Imagine F.E.A.R. with the graphic and gameplay of Hotline Miami, and you would not be far off about this game. The story is quite nice, although a bit generic. I only play a bit so far, however, so my opinion may change. The game mechanic is simple, so it would not be daunting to casual gamers. The game art is nice. Soundtracks are excellent, but the game lacks voice over. All in all, quite a nice game for $5.

There's a pretty big asterix behind my recommendation for this game. It is fun. It has some memoriable moments. It has a pretty good atmosphere. But I don't think I'm going to finish this game. There are two peevs that I've come across in my hour of playing. 1: Enemies respawn when you leave the screen, but weapons don't. 2: There seem to be some bugs going around. No, not the monsters. I stopped playing because my instruction was to find a phone in the police station and I checked every phone but no further instrunction ever came up. I get it, they don't work. I knew that before I checked them, but what am I supposed to do now? I don't want to wander aimlessely around infinity monsters when my machette was taken away.

Besides that, I'm still recommending this game because it was cheap, indie, and I honestly enjoyed the playtime I had. If I feel like bothering to check the forums for direction, I may even try playing again.

Scale: 1=despised 2=negative 3=could go either way 4=positive 5=loved
Game design: 4/5 I haven't played a top down game in forever, but I like the idea of a top down survival horror. Very interesting and it seems to work well. Too bad there seems to be some potentially game breaking bugs. Maybe? I honestly didn't try very hard to see if it was a bug or if I'm just missing something.

Tone: 3/5 I get scared easily, and I do find the game creepy. The dark scares me, because I'm a pansy, and there are jump scares, but they don't feel cheap. It's like, "ah, there's a monster- oh ♥♥♥♥, they're overe here now!". I saw it coming, and I still was surprised. Unfortunately, the story isn't really giving me any inspiration, and the engrish descriptions aren't helping things.

Personal skew: 3/5 I don't think I can speak for a lot of people about this game. Not really my genre, but I think the game is pretty transparent in it's advertising. You probably knew if you were going to enjoy it or not before you played it.

Top-down horror/survival game. It starts out vague and boring, but as it progresses there's some pick-up to the plot. It's interesting that they added a variety of enemies to the game. I played it through during the 'key error' phase where you couldn't access it through steam, so my time playing it wasn't recorded. It's about 3-5 hours, give or take. A map would've been a nice addition because Motte Island is fairly large, and can be fairly confusing if you can't recall where to go or if you have a hard time finding your way around in games. One of the things that really got to me was dialogue, the game caught my eye because of it's artistic detail, I expected it to be well-rounded, but the dialogue didn't provide that. A game like this should be rich in dialogue I believe, it shouldn't solely depend on it's other elements. I'm not saying it's a bad game, but the dialogue really didn't make me enjoy the entire experience the game had to offer. I enjoyed some of the other elements brought into it though, they could prove to be really fun at times. I'd recommend it if it were on sale.

Its as if someone had tried to make a decent enough xbox live indie game, it almost takes the piss out of modern horror games for their ungratified long, boring stealth sections and braindead enemies (resident evil 6), though i'm not sure whether thats in porpose, and it does get very repetitive throughout, though then again that could be another piss take. Good enough for £3.99, even though i've only played through a bit of the game.

A 2-D top down view game that has its moments that will surely remind you of FEAR, while at other times will make you question common game logic, its worth $1, not $5, so it it comes on sale, buy it, but if not, just wait.

The beginning is really boring and confusing, but as you progress through the story, you may, not will, may start to understand that something has gone terribly wrong and you have to fix it.

-Will update review as I continue to progress through the game

Hotline Miami with new graphics and a horrific storyline. The game isn't that much scary but fun. It's fast paced, hard, and awesome. I love the storyline. I guess it's worth 5$! Buy it when you want, and play it.

It's a good Survival Horror game. You have to survive on multiple grounds as you encounter Zombies, Cannibles, Psycopathic Murderers', Moths', And don't forget the Moths.. They are important in this game. OKAY so It has ups and downs. But overall it does have mini-games to offer. Like a shoot 'em up Zombie game and some other aswell. Motte Island has its charm and is F-U-N TOO :D::D:D:DD:D:D:D:D:D:D:"D:D:D::D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:DD::D:D:D:D:D:D:D: AHHH!

Motte Island does enough to warrant a purchase from serious horror fans, but it has far too many problems for anybody on the fence or who isn’t a big fan of the genre.

On one hand it’s atmospheric, creative, has some intelligent but simple (you choose if that last part is bad or not) game design, and did I mention the atmosphere? Seriously, there aren’t many 2-D games out there that can envelop you this well in a sense of actually existing within the game world.

But on the other hand there are some incredibly amateurish or downright broken parts as well. The enemy AI is faulty sometimes failing to recognize you OR alternatively being Elder Scrolls levels of telepathic, the combat while really unforgiving at first becomes really simple once you figure out the trick, and perhaps the biggest issue I hold with the game is a terrible translation. I can get over the other two as the games sense of immersion wins out, but this last one flies in the face of that immersion and is by far the biggest flaw. Much of the smaller bits of text are bearable having minor grammatical issues, but when you come across a large document or something trying to convey deeper meaning it’s quite blatant the developer either used a half-working translator, or only have the passing minimum of English experience required for the project.

They manage to get the point across but it detracts terribly from your suspension of disbelief. If the game was cheaper or even free I’d be willing to overlook this but at the price they’re asking at current ($5) it seems like they should have sprung for someone to translate it properly. Considering the game had many fans waiting for it that would have happily applied, or the prevalence of relatively cheap translation services available online I can’t really forgive this massive failing.

Still the game manages to do more right than it does wrong, and if you’re a serious horror fan then the depth of the games atmosphere will likely win you over. But for everyone else you should definitely wait till it’s on sale.
