I was happy enough with the gaming mechanics throughout what is a fascinating story. That said, for me the best aspect of this game is the atmosphere and mood they have captured/created. Definitely not a complete picture but does pique ones interest to find out more.

To be honest there is only a little replay value, but saying that I did play through the game three times. The problem is that your choices have a very small impact in how the other characters treat you. The third time I played I saw almost exactly the same things as the first two, (except for some failure moments) and the story goes on whether you choose option 1 or 4.

Despite some gameplay woes listed above I would like to point out that I enjoyed learning about some history and especialy liked how we are taken along for the journy in a front seat view. The first run was the best for even though I found myself having a little trouble manuvering the character I learned a lot and had fun doing so. I would recomend playing through the game at least twice.

I did have 1 performance issue, but the devs were quick in helping me fix it when I brought it to the forums.

This is something of a Telltale-style edutainment game. Meaning you click your way through dialogues and quick-time events, while being guided through something more of a film than a classical adventure game. If you have never bothered to learn about the 1979 Iranian Revolution before, but are generally interested in history and politics, you will definetly enjoy this one.

Just be warned that the game is exceptionally short (less than three hours), so you might want to wait for a sale. It's also rather sad this is not in episodic format, as a lot of interesting characters are introduced and choices are being made, so you'd like to follow up on their future outcome.

A clear labor of love, and a historically rich experience. Didn't realize until the very end that it was co-written by Brian Wood, but it makes sense in retrospect.

On a gameplay level, this is kind of the King's Quest to Telltale's Monkey Island (wait, didn't Telltale actually make some not-great Monkey Island games? Forget that. This metaphor takes place in the 90s). It's less forgiving. It's more frustrating. It's less robust and less entertaining. The whole thing is about as long as a single Telltale episode. But if you're interested in the history, or you generally like the (modern) Telltale approach to games, it's worth checking out, especially if you can get it on sale.

1979 Revolution: Black Friday is an adventure point and click game developed and published by iNKstories, releasing on PC, PS3, 360 and iOS in April 2016. The game focuses on the Iranian Revolution, from 1979 that led to the overthrow of the dictatorial regime of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in Iran.

The game play is your run of the mill point and click adventure game, but resembles more of a Telltale style environment, where timed dialog choices are prominent throughout the story, as well as quick time events. Thankfully the QTEs are few and far between, allowing you chance to sit back and relax the main element of this game, the gripping story.

The most important feature of a point and click game is obviously going to be the plot, 1979 Revolution ticks all of the right boxes there. Following a historical timeline of events with slight blurred lines between reality and what you see in the game, we follow Reza and his good friend Babek as they look to exploit the terrorist regime in Iran to start a revolution. You meet important characters along the way and you will develop relationships with them depending on actions and dialog choices throughout. The story takes you through dips, turns and dramatic outcomes, and potentially leaves the plot open for a sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed the story of this game, not only is it an interesting plot, but it teaches you something, which is always an added bonus when it comes to video games.

Graphically this game looks decent, nothing spectacular, but there are hundreds of worse looking titles out there. It looks like an early GTA title in terms of textures, animations and work environments. Still pleasant to look at, but don’t expect state of the art graphics and clean cut visuals here. The voice acting on the other hand is brilliant, all characters are well voiced and fit their character’s perfectly. This game would not be what it is today without this top notch voice acting. I can’t imagine I would of enjoyed it nearly as much if it was text based.

There isn’t any difficulty to 1979, The only time you will fail at any point is if you miss a QTE, and then you can simply replay it and pay more attention! While the game does have different choices to take throughout the plot, the ultimate ending will near enough be the same regardless, which is a bit of a shame as I always like it when games clearly make your choices matter.

It is also worth noting that this game is very short. The story is spread out across 18 chapters, but this still only took me under an hour to complete. You will find a bit of replayability though due to the different paths you may follow, as well as tons of collectibles and achievements to hunt for as well. For me though, I’m only going to want to play through it once.

Overall, 1979 is a really good adventure game, but the only thing that lets it down is the lack of content that gives this game any longevity. If the story could be expanded or lead onto maybe an Episode 2, then it would be well worth the £8.99 but purely because it is so short, I can only recommend 1979 Revolution: Black Friday when it is on sale.

This game was a real disappointment to me. The things I tend to value in a game are storytelling, immersion, and innovation. 1979 seemed like a good candidate to provide all of these elements, and the game was very well hyped throughout the lead-up to its release by press and critics. The topic seemed rich. I want more games that thematically confront a wider range of experiences, that engage difficult and complex human topics, and that push the genre of a "game" forward. 1979 did none of this.

While the game did provide a wealth of information to the player, it failed to leverage the mechanics of the medium to expand it beyond what you would be better served acquiring through Wikipedia or web searches.

There are few mechanics to playing 1979. one is making decisions, which seem to have little to no bearing on the plot, and which are not framed in a manner that induces tension like the better Telltale Games of this ilk. In addition the countdown timer during which time the player must make a choice is too quick. As a result there is little time in which to weigh choices. Instead of this element adding tension, or forcing a "gut reaction", it strips the decisions of all emotional weight.

Another aspect of the game involves collecting photos and items which the game labels collectively as "stories". There is no challenge to this collection aspect. As a result the mechanic is delivered as something of a cross between a chore and an afterthought, tacked on to make this seem like a game rather than to develop it as one.

Lastly, there are a few button-pressing sequences that are so infrequent they are almost surprising when they occur, and certainly of no interest.

Others have touched on the brevity of the game and it's disappointing and unresolved ending. And while both of these are true, I could forgive them if the rest of the experience wasn't so fundamentally flawed.

There was tremendous potential here. A rich subject, a worthy conversation to be had, that does not deliver in really any way. It could have been salvaged by good writing or mechanics, but neither exists here. I do not recommend this at all.

Very short(I finished it in 2 hours) but well worth the purchase as it was very well done, although the ending was rather abrupt and unexpected and didn't tie up any loose ends. I learnt quite a lot about the circumstances surrounding the Iranian revolution and the background behind the present day situation. It maintained a fairly objective stance about the revolution, even though it was told from the point of view of the revolutionaries. I also learnt quite a bit about Iranian culture and traditions. Very similar to Telltale games in structure and style, and also less buggy. I hope I see some more similar historical games from these devs as it was very enjoyable.

Good Story,Good Gameplay,Emotional Story,Short Story

Really good game.ıt has an emotianal story.But story is too short ı have finished the game near 2 hours.But the game is choice based so you can finish it more than 20 times ı think.

Story is this:You are Reza Shirazi which camed from a rich family.There starts a Iranıan Revolution againsts Shah Pehlevi.On First Communists,Nationalists,Shariat Supporters all of them revolt againsts Shah but after ı guess they divided and Shariat Supporters have arrested you and your police brother.then they killed your brother.and Shah have already killed your cousin that you are best friends with.

I'dlike to see some more games based on 20th Century historical events like this but ı hope ıt will be longer.

Score:100/90

I’m very torn with this game. On the one hand it is reasonably well told and has a unique setting that makes the game appealing. On the other it left me disappointed due to it’s fairly short length. When I reached the end I was just thinking, “That can’t be it, is this just Episode 1 or something and it does credits at the end of each like Telltale games???” But … no … that was it, it just ends very abruptly. The length clearly affected other things as well. None of the characters (except the main character) get much screen time so there isn’t much character development. Also there just isn’t time for your choices to feel like they had any far-reaching affects. The visuals are nice to look at, though there are some mistakes (such as when I saw a man walk through a newspaper machine). As for gameplay, don’t expect anything more than what you normally get in games like these (think the amount of gameplay in a Telltale game i.e. minimal). So I guess my recommendation is a very shaky yes, but only if the devs plan on continuing the story.

It is quite difficult to fairly judge a piece of work when its qualities and failures are exceptionally conflicting. 1979 Revolution: Black Friday proposes a fresh and intimate look at a very critical moment in history, mostly unexplored in today's media, and becomes a very important creation deployed over a rich, unique background. However, it completely fails as a game on so many basic levels that it renders the experience partially unpalatable.

I plunged into the game fully expecting immersion into a totally foreign piece of history and on that front the game delivers well. This story is favorably about people and politics, not religious extremism. I was, however, expecting some level of familiarity in how an adventure game plays but met instead uniformly unpolished mechanics.

The game starts by teaching you the basics under the pressure of a timer. You are rapidly force-fed an array of disparate mechanics that are rarely properly exploited even later on, almost always accompanied by needlessly wordy instructions.

There is some merit in the way conversational scenes play out though, showcasing a pleasantly simple art direction, good camera work, professionally voiced conversations and a very balanced soundtrack. Anatomically challenged character animations and low resolution textures don't detract too much but are nonetheless very obvious.

The more intimate segments of the game were especially well presented, whether a touching father and son talk or some moving last words, and a variety of archive footage that actually made me feel very sad about the way things have turned out for an entire generation that only demanded to live freely in the face of tyranny...

The game does have an incredibly compelling story to tell, with sympathetic characters evolving in a critical moment of history. However, the dialogue choices are often coupled with short timers so limited that you barely have time to read all options before having to pick one. This results in taking a direction you did not necessarily intend nor fully understand, and leads to a frequently frustrating experience.

The most troublesome part of the gameplay takes the shape of horrendously executed action sequences that don't positively add to the urgency of situations, and instead simply feel clumsy and out of place.

Uneven UI quality marks points for a clean menu, but the game itself is peppered with odd or unconventional design choices. For instance, your character often stands in the way of interactive icons, effectively blocking them from view, and the icons themselves generally look weak.

Another example is you don't just click on an item to pick it up; you click on it and then click on the unattractive "Add to Inventory" button that shows up at the bottom of the screen. Not that you really have an inventory in the game world anyway since you can't access, inspect or use any of the items you pick up. Everything simply gets logged into the bland Stories menu, which acts as your collectibles encyclopedia.

Also, there is no actual puzzle to solve. 1979 Revolution is resolutely more of a docudrama or an interactive museum tour than an adventure game.

Unimaginative and unrealistic camera shutter and focus controls consist of a cursor mindlessly running left and right, endlessly, until you click when it hits dead center (or approximately close enough). There is no challenge in taking pictures, except to spot the places where the scripted camera icon shows up, which essentially translates to walking over every inch of the game world with your best friend following you every single step of the way (literally).

Each virtual picture you take is interestingly accompanied by an actual corresponding period photograph and brief historical facts. This incursion into a world and time that seems nearly forgotten to the western culture is a positively informative touch and one of the game's main strengths.

In most chapters you spend the majority of your time hunting for pics and short optional interactions, which equates to an impressively huge collectible run, supported by corresponding achievements. There is regrettably nothing natural about the way you discover the world or interact with it. The game's source material is remarkable and it is very unfortunate that the developer could not deliver it in a more organic way.

Nearly all interactions are fairly linear and most have no consequence. In one part you will be taken to a man who prepares a fake ID for you. You get to pick your new name, a date and place of birth, in a dramatic manner that confers an upcoming importance – and it is never used. Ever. Not even mentioned once.

Elsewhere you must make a serious accusation out of very little actual evidence, if any, and that lead never gets resolved. It looks like a tight budget forced considerable cuts from the developer's original vision, resulting in a parceled experience, not to mention a very abrupt ending.

The game is structured in 19 micro chapters that are really more like 19 short scenes, totaling just under 3 hours of gameplay. Unsurprisingly, the story and events all make a lot more sense during a second playthrough, where I now feel better informed and equipped to understand what is going on.

I cannot honestly recommend this game in good faith to anyone unless they are specifically interested in learning more about this precise moment of history. Those purely looking for an entertaining gaming experience will be disappointed, but otherwise the game's historical significance and narrative are compelling enough to discover if you can forgive its glaring weaknesses. If it were possible to recommend games somewhere in between "Yes" and "No" I would pick this middle option.

It's somewhat interesting in a Telltales sort of way but the illusion of choice is just that. Whatever choices you make seem inconsequential for the most part and there's no real gameplay outside of taking pictures of events. For what's found here, it feels like the game is really overpriced so it's hard to recommend.

I Have done one ending on this, and really enjoyed it, if your a fan of the Middle east history then buy it, I hope more games like this will come to steam, also the people complaning at the length if you check have mostly only played through it once... there are a (couple?) of endings you can get so you can get about 10 hours with the whole game totallly worth the asking price.

An amazing game.
Great historical insight into Iranian revolution.
I like the fact that it is not biased towards the historical events.
