Reviews

“All in all, this is one of the best P&C adventure games I've ever played. Every aspect is impressive on its own and when all of its elements are combined, a truly worthy gaming experience is born. For fans of the genre or horror games in general, this game won't disappoint.”
9/10 – Game Walkers

“Every single piece of art is absolutely stunning and the gameplay complements it well. It has a perfect length for what it is and the world stays with you well after you’re finished. Tormentum is one of the most strikingly visual adventure games and the small team at OhNoo Studio should be proud of what they’ve made.”
9/10 – Pixel Related

“All clearly inspired by the nightmarish flesh-stretching surrealism of HR Giger with occasional hellscapes in the style of Hieronymus Bosch, Tormentumis never less than amazing to look at and the push to see the next piece of f***ed-up artwork is what drove me on through the game the most.”
7/10 – Game Watcher

About This Game

TORMENTUM is a dark Point & Click adventure game.



The dreamlike, nightmarish atmosphere of the game was inspired by works of painters H.R. Giger and Zdzislaw Beksinski. The game's final look and feel was also strongly influenced by the universes of games such as Demon's Souls or Dark Seed. This unique mixture gave life to a bleak and depressing world.



Those are however the least of his problems as the airship lowers its flight towards a huge gloomy castle which soon becomes his prison. Thus begins the surreal story bordering somewhere between dream and reality...

I'm not a fan of adventure games.
But I started to love this game at the first glance.
The art style and quality are just amazing.
The puzzles are not too difficult and keep you going on.
The story is never makes you feel boring before it ends.
I completed this game and decided to do it again for achivements.
I started collecting trading cards because of this game.
Wow I never thought it could be so great.

More than a game, this a piece of dark art.
Deep and full of symbols the solid story of the game led you to a mind puzzle, an oniric dreamlike encounter and in the end the game is only playing with your soul, judging your actions.

Totally recomended!

DISCLAIMER: This is a full review, and NOT a first impressions review like all my other reviews, if you want a better full review, then please read better reviews then mine

Tormentum - Dark Sorrow is a point and click adventure game developed by OhNoo! Studios. The game's visuals and music are absolutely stunning. The visuals and artwork are both disturbing yet oddly satisfying (to me anyway) and this type of art style that Tormentum has is the type of art I love (Yes, I know, I'm a sick b*stard)

The music as well is perfect and fits well into the themes that the game is trying to go for. The story although I won't mention anything here as I feel everyone should try out this game is very well written and takes the themes it is tyring to set for pretty well

The puzzles are not too hard but not too easy and play very well inbto the game. The only two things I would talk about are the length and the loss in framerate. The game clocks in at only 2-3 hours long which I felt this game should of had a longer story that would have clocked in at around 4-6 hours

The other thing I am complaining about is the framerate. Firstly, I would understand why the game is locked at 30FPS but what I cannot understand is why the game looses frames to around 15FPS or lower in some segments. I can sure as hell run this game (GeForce GTX 980Ti), then why did this game's framerate dip so much?

Tormentum - Dark Sorrow is a game everyone should try, even if people don't like the point and click aspect or don't like too many puzzles or don't like the art style, they should at least give it a try!

RECOMMENDED :)
THEPCGAMER'S BEST GAME IN STEAM LIBRARY! (What's this? :- Like some games get "Best Game of 2014" or "Best Indie Game", etc... So I have decided to make my own!)

Thanks to the developers/Publisher of Tormentum Dark Sorrow OhNoo Studios for a truly incredible game to enjoy and escape.

If i were to choose one adventure game to recommend to either veterns of the genre or someone who has never played an adventure game my answer will be(for now) Tormentum-Dark Sorrow. It doesnt stray to far from the adventure game blueprint(find items, puzzles, etc)but its other high quality details, art, story, music, that propells this game into another stratosphere. It took me 5 hrs to complete the game in one day and i never have done that before.

Positives

Art is absoluely amazing every scene could be hanging in an art show.
The story is a dark, choice driven experience that makes gray choices difficult. And all those choices have actual consequences to a suprising ending.
The music is a mixed bag from orchestral hall rendetions, choir vocalization, single gutar pick screams, to heavy metal. It fits the mood, scenery and puzzles excellant.

Negatives

With a lot of chocies you would expect a few endings, but alas there are only 2. So choose wisely.
Not a lot of menu options and not widescreen or 16:9 full screen support. Weird.

It's a good throwback to old point and click adventures, but the shining star of the game is the artwork. If you at all like this genre of artwork, the game is worth it just to see all the artwork in its full glory.

This game is one of the best adventure games that I have ever played. Tormentum has a very good storytelling and excited Art Style. You will be sucked into the illustrations. If you are interested in rich stories and Art especcially you won't be dissapointed.

PS : If you are going to play the game in Turkish, translation is really cool.

Enjoyed this one very much. If you're a fan of point-and-click adventure games or these kinds of visuals, you're in for a treat. Great sound, great visuals, incredible mood, and it strikes a good balance between choices and puzzles. so I'd recommend it to any fan of adventure games, whether their tastes were closer to the Sierra or Telltale ends of the spectrum.
