Over dit spel

(This game was already launched last year on Desura and Gamersgate with the name "Dungeon Gate".)

There is no better disguise than to look exactly like your enemies! Dysan: The Shapeshifter is a RPG that gives the opportunity to the player to assume the form and abilities of all creatures he encounters along his journey. This in order to have clear advantages in battles and ultimately complete the game successfully.

Imagine approaching a horde of mummies, giant scarabs, slimes or any opponents of the game then shapeshifting, put yourself directly in the center of the group and passes unnoticed as one of thereof. As your energy allows you, you can use their special abilities, powers and weapons. This unique way of playing will delight the whole gamer’s community.

The game Dysan: The Shapeshifter does not offer the player to select a class, but instead to train the abilities of enemies he takes form from. This game mechanic offers a huge deal of skills, weapons and special powers.

In addition, Dysan: The Shapeshifter offers the player an “old school vibe” experience. It is reflected in the way the map is built and how the player interacts with it; on how the fight mechanic is designed and how the art direction has been thought.

• RPG / Adventure game
• Huge open world to explore and a variety of dungeons with traps, puzzles and exciting fighting challenges
• More than 30 characters to drain and to make evolve
• Ability to make evolve each character to 30th level.
• Over 25 hours of gameplay

20 years later, a horrible tyrant took over the destiny of Barrilian, forcing its population to slavery by using his influence over dragons to establish his terrible kingdom. Excavating mines to extract precious magic stones in favor of their tormentor, Barrilian inhabitants helplessly witnessing the dictator getting more and more powerful. However, a young man named Dysan could help change everything...

When you launch the game there's a window to choose the resolution, no matter what you choose the game will overide your selection (1600x900 windowed in my case) and go by the defaults (1920x1080 full screen).

Once inside the game you will notice there's no Options menu at all (just "New game", "Continue", "Credits" and "Quit"*).

When you choose "New game" and the intro starts, there is no way to skip it, so you will have plenty of time to see the poor models and awful textures.

Once you finally get control of your character and try to move, you will think the game is running at something around 15 frames per second, but it's actually the jerky movement animations of your character. Even games from the mid 90s had better model animations, back when the whole 3D thing was new.

Once you try to get out of your house (starting point) you'll notice loading times are higher than most AAA games. Skyrim with a bunch of mods loaded faster for me.

Can't talk a lot about the actual mechanics of the game or the story, but the little I saw was not promising.

Devs should provide a minimum quality before selling their (finished) game.

As I was going to post the review I saw the game is from the same devs as "Day One: Garry's Incident", one of the most infamous games on Steam. !! DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME !!.

Dysan the Shapeshifter (aka Dungeon Gate) is an open-world RPG set in a dull fantasy world with dull characters and a dull story. It fails in almost every regard except that it has a great soundtrack and great ideas behind shapeshifting.

Graphically, the game looks like ♥♥♥♥. There is nothing good about it. Horrible character models roam around horribly textured environments with a bland art style, giving out unoriginal side quests.

Gameplay is a mixed bag of RPG elements and clunky hack & slash combat. Interaction with characters are limited to a wall of text. The RPG elements are very unoriginal and executed quite poorly. The combat is slow, clunky, and a tedious waste of time.

Sound design is dreadful. The game makes no effort to make the player feel immersed in this world. The sound of a woman in need of help or the gentle pitter patter of your feet hitting the dirt walkway is done in a very amateur way.

The story is dull. The opening cutscene takes about 10 minutes and it is about an old man, with poor animation quality, that walks very slowly to do something that isn't explained. Other than that, the protagonist pops up in some random ♥♥♥ town. (I cant comment on the rest of the story because this game is too bad to finish).

Finally to the good stuff. The soundtrack is surprisingly great. It features many upbeat, melancholy, and emotional songs that is masterfully woven into the game. And the gameplay (and story) ideas about shapeshifting are integrated well.

Additional Thoughts: This game is poorly optimized. I have surpassed the recommended system specs and still get 20 fps on Low settings.

Final Thoughts: Broken piece of trash that has abysmal graphics, sound, pacing, story, characters, world design, optimization, clunky and reptitive combat, and horrible presentation. The only good thing this game has is a great soundtrack and an okay idea behind shapeshifting. AVOID THIS GAME LIKE THE PLAGUE EVEN IF YOU GOT IT FOR FREE!!!!

To hell with being polite:
If Satan himself was asked to create a game - this would be it.

It's horrible in every conceivable way. Please for the love of your particular deity *do not* spend money on this trash.

I got this for free, and now I wish there was a way to remove it permanently from my steam library, hiding it isn't enough.

- Its broken combat is torture to watch
- Its 'save' system is infuriating.
- Shapeshifting? Pointless when basic combat mechanics inspire nausea.
- Artstyle is inconsistant and just plain ugly. Graphics isn't everything, but basic artistic cohesion is mandatory in any game.
- Quest tracking doesn't help at all - it's just an arrow above your minimap, could just as well be removed altogether. If this is what they mean by “old school vibe”, then they're better off sticking with the "newer school" conventions.
- Story? Doesn't make a drop of sense, like LSD-induced psychosis - it makes perfect sense to the addict, but to no one else.
- Sound assets? Turned it off 1 hour into the game.
- The description on the store page is *hilarious* - the same salespitch you'd get from a sleezy second-hand car salesman

As with Wild Games Studio's other masterpiece (Garry's Incident), this game had an interesting idea (shape-shifting into enemies) and executed it so badly that I would have to be paid a large amount of money to suffer through it again.

To quote AngryJoe's description used for Ride to Hell:
"It's functional garbage"
"Gameplay functions, but its only function is to hurt your soul"

The above two statements summarizes accurately this horrible piece of software, one of the worst ever coded.

Avoid it like the plague.

Avoid this game at all costs. The gameplay is terrible. Fighting mechanics are lost in the great void of nothingness. The story does little to no sense at all, just as does the first quest the game throws at you: "Find a rabbit. To do that speak to a scientist, find a dying chicken and bring it back to the forementioned scientist. Then pull the rabbit out of a cage that is next to the scientist and bring it back to a peasant". Seems legit. The only thing I liked about this game was the "skill tree" potential that got killed by the entire game. Also, the after-death-save-loading-thingy was neat. A nice reference to some of the older games, like Fable (if I am not wrong). 2/10

A generic,bland,uninspired,clunky and technically subpar RPG game from the *gasp* makers of Day One: Garry's Incident.
You are Dysan,a shapeshifter who can do this cause,well it's not really explained...you embark on a quest because,not really explained either.

PROS:

-the DNA/shapeshifting idea isn't bad,on paper.

-the soundtrack overall isn't TOO horrible.

CONS:

-the shapeshifting idea is neat,but ultimately useless apart from the rat (to solve quests) and horse (cause it's bugged I guess? so every enemy ignores you,even if you shift in front of their eyes). I basically played the whole game without using any shapeshifting.

-graphics are bland,blurry,the LOD is seriously awful,models are bad.

-combat sounds are meh,music isn't too bad but there's little variation,also the combat music starts even if you take damage by falling.

-animations are awful,clunky,some skip altogether,jumping is BAD,it'll make jumping puzzles frustrating as hell.

-controls are awful,totally awful,clunky,unresponsive,have fun hammering that spell key 5 times before it finally decides to cast.

-combat is boring when it works (face enemy,smash keyboard hoping it registers),frustrating when it doesn't work. A little elevation will prevent you from hitting enemies,they also get stuck often.

-game balance is pretty bad,most fights are a breeze,a few enemies are too strong overall,stun abilities have a long duration,boss fights are best faced by running around,dodge their attack,cast a spell and then run around some more (waiting for mana) until you can cast again,boring.

-what little story is there makes little to no sense,most stuff isn't really explained,the characters are very vague,their actions make no sense at all.

-woeful game design,unfinished menu,little in the way of tutorials,the load menu doesnt exist,it's an ingame area where you choose a portal bearing the savegame date/time (WHY? WHO thought this was a good idea?). Also,date/time are often hard to read,so good luck loading the right save.

Stay away from this,it has no redeeming qualities.

Dysan the Shapeshifter is a good candidate for worst western RPG of all time. Its combat mechanics are weak, its shapeshifting gimmick is barely used, there's no discernable story, and the quests are boring "kill X of this enemy" tasks. The best I can say about it is that some of the graphical glitches are kinda funny. Yep, the best part of the game is not even supposed to happen.

The good: The player character looks kinda like Tomoko Kuroki.
The bad: There's no fame mechanic, so you can't become popular.

I'll start by saying, do not buy this game at is current state, 9,99€ is way overpriced at least at the moment.

The game is really pretty taking out some design flaws, the main reason i do not recommend this game at the current state is really simple: The controls are not fastly responsive.

So if you hit the ''A'' key to go left, the delay is quite big, if a patch is launched to fix the delay issues this really might be a good game, but like this it turns out really hard to play.

Promised hundreds, if not thousands of free keys if we supported the game. WHen the game was launched, nothing. Also, the game is medicore, but the fact that the devs lied to us make me a give a game that i would usually give a positive rating a negative one.

I really liked the concept of Dungeon Gate when I first seen it in Greenlight. I'm embarrassed to say that I was one of the idiots that upvoted this abysmal excuse of a game. I didn't buy it outright, it was in a bundle. I had tried Dysan the Shapeshifter around a year ago, seen it in my games library and decided to see if anything had been improved. It still has the same ugly graphics, creepy looking characters, bad animations, horrible controls, pathetic AI, and terrible sound quality, nothing has changed. The game is just a broken, worthless POS that shouldn't be sold. When I was a kid, I made people out of clay(my mother called them dead people) and thats what the characters in this game look like, walking dead people. This "game" is from the same devs as "Day One: Garry's Incident", one of the most infamous games on Steam. AVOID!! DO NOT BUY!!! You have been warned!

This game has major performance problems and seems to have bugs as well. It belongs in the "Early Access" category, except that I doubt that any improvements will be made to it. To test subjective game performance I normaly set games to full native screen resolution and set the graphics quality to "medium". This game is very very sluggish to respond even under these modest settings, to the point where the game is unplayable. To make things worse the graphics are bad (many of the character models are exact clones of each other) and the game seems to have bugs plus poor user experience design. Luckily I got this one as part of a large bundle for almost nothing.

Stay away from this one! It's not even worth downloading for free.

A dull fantasy world with dull characthers. Although, I must admit, a cool idea behind the shapeshifting. However, all the rest is quite poor. Poor camera control and poor cinematics.
Only the upbeat soundtrack is worth your money.

i don't recomand this game
bad control

each time you save the game you never restart at the same place.Its like we lose some minutes we payed and go back into the past,didnt understand this?
i am block because the map is not clear,we can follow the quest with an arrow on a small map but it dont work properly and its too tricky because it only show the dirrection,not where to go
i die all the time because of the bad control,press to attack 20 times but you are lucky if it work one time....
the quest are boring,go there and come back,why? we dont know,for fun but its not fun lol

good music and good concept but just dont work well,like the game is not complete....
i purchased for 0,82$ and i am very sad,i would not recomand it for 0,50$ :(
-----------------
je ne recomande pas ce jeux

a chaque foi que nous sauvegardon et que l'on rejou,on ne commence jamais a l'endoit ou on a sauvegarder! c'est comme si nous perdon quelque minute de jeux et revenon dans le passé,je n'ai pas trop compri?
je suis bloquer dans le jeux car la carte n'est vraiment pas clair,mal expliquer et impossible de se retrouver,il y y a un moyen de suivre les quetes mais cela ne fonctione pas simplement.Cela montre la direction de la quete mais ne dit pas nécéssairement la direction a marcher pour se rendre
je meurs tout le temps a cause des mauvais controles,je pese pour attaqué 20 fois mais si cela fonctione une foi vous etes tres chanceux!

I never write reviews, but this time I have no choice. Okay, I played this game for about 40min, and all I can say is that it's really ♥♥♥♥ing bad. No seriously, I had to make a new category in my library called crap, and then I uninstalled it.

You start the game, and then you get the cinematic intro, which is the worst intro I've ever seen. I think they had like 4-5 lines. They mention a child, who survived inside a magical field, and is saved by a mage, then out of nowhere they mention another in one sentence, "The other where taken by dragons". Wow.. just.. wow..

Well, then I think about how much I paid, and I'm like, "Well, I didn't pay much, it might still have potential".
Well, I was wrong. The modeling is pretty bad, the animation, also pretty bad. The quest text tops it all though, it's terrible.

But I held through, until the fighting really started.
The skills do not work, you can collect enemy's DNA, but I found no way of using it.
If you get more than one enemy on you, and trust me you will, you have no way of surviving, except maybe if you use pots. Which you only find a couple of in the beginning, and I think you have to go to the inventory to use them.
Enemies never stops following you, when they starts attacking you, they'll never stop, unless you kill them.

Oh yeah, also the map and the minimap is two different maps, also the maps shows houses where there are none, and no houses where there are some.
All in all, I found only disappointment in this game..

3rd person adventure/RPG. Graphics are PS1 alike, not intentional I guess. The main char looks ugly as helll. Controls feel awkward and buggy you can jump up 85° cliffs and exploit everything. Did not enjoy at all
