Stained takes the player (who looks much like Death) through a seemingly abandoned castle and kingdom. As you work through the levels, the story unfolds, and you learn more about what brought ruin to the once-thriving fortress.

About This Game

Stained is a side-scrolling, platforming and combat action game set in an ancient, mysterious castle featuring detailed 3D environments with a continually changing game world. Events in Stained are triggered by breaking objects placed in and around the castle, and outcomes are determined by the combination of glass pieces that litter the ground, leading to a variety of experiences. Novel ways to break objects have to be thought of at times, which will keep the player guessing what the next puzzle will be. In any fight in the game victory is usually temporary, as defeated foes may form again, or reassemble to form entirely new ones. The gameplay is fully interactive and physics based – each character’s uncanny abilities have to be kept in mind to think of innovative ways to proceed through the game!

Although I do recommend this title for those who are into action platformers, there are a few things that bug me. The Control scheme for Keyboard is wonky, and I feel that shatter would be better placed on either Z or C by deafault. However, the soundtrack for the demo is nice, and the environments are gorgeous.

First of all, I have respect for indie games as I have tried myself to make games and it is very difficult. That being said, I enjoyed the atmosphere of the game and I liked the integration of the puzzles to help you get abilities. I feel a quick tutorial or display of controls on the first level would have been helpful as well as maybe telling the player how to use the chandeliers. The combat system needs a bit of work as it feels like all you do is just hit things until they die but maybe in a full game the enemies would be more difficult and you actually have to be creative to defeat them. Overall, the game needs a bit of work but this is a good start I feel.

I can't get past the first puzzle on the demo, as the pieces are all missing! It's difficult to recommend something that only lasts 20 seconds before breaking. :(

Like others I can't get past the first puzzle as there doesn't seem like there is enough information in order to complete. Maybe the game is over my head.
