Acerca do Jogo

A unique adventure, a stunning scenario to discover in one season!
Winter Voices is a narrative-driven, episodic, role-playing game set in an imaginary and timeless world at the start of the Industrial Revolution. Players control a 24 year-old heroine as she deals with the death of her father. She must journey through the heart of Winter and battle her worst enemies – her own personal demons.
The first season of the Winter Voices series is comprised of seven downloadable episodes, each unraveling new elements of the character’s tale.
Winter Voices combines “point and click” real-time gaming with strictly defensive turn-based combat. As the game alternates real-time dialog and world exploration with combat, players will experience turn-based psychic warfare.

Key Features:

  • mature and creative narrative, exploring human consciousness and immersing in an evocative and chilling role-playing experience
  • sophisticated and thought provoking gameplay: the player engages in “defense of the mind” mechanics, as the character is overwhelmed by memories and fights against her own inner demons, fears, voices of illusion, guilt, madness...
  • tactical... with a twist: strictly defensive turn-based combat
  • wondrous and unusual world: an imaginary and timeless world at the start of the Industrial Revolution
  • dynamic soundtrack: keeping to the theme of self-discovery, haunting melodies guide the player, setting a dark, intriguing mood to match the character’s cold journey and mysterious past

Winter Voices Prologue: Avalanche

A drama is unfolding in a tiny village buried in snow, lost in the depths of a Three-River Principality valley. A sudden death, a now-hostile home, new sensory capacities rising like a storm and the departure towards the unknown, the only means to escape besides death, has become inevitable...The newly-orphaned heroine is pushed to leave her father’s village by the voices of her unconscious mind. The long journey to find answers will lead you through many events to overcome anger, sadness, pain and fear and finally unveil what is whispered by the voices of Winter.

This is a game worth at least trying out, as it shows you an entirely different way of thinking of the whole notion of the RPG as more of a physics puzzle game based upon a skill tree than any standard dungeon grind.Many people criticise this game for its slowness and they certainly have a point, and most of it seems to be flaws with Adobe AIR, the game's poorly-chosen engine.However, part of the slowness is also deliberate. It's a deeply psychological game, built around a core of the sense of loneliness and isolation, even from those who should be friends or even family.Winter Voices is also buggy especially because of Adobe AIR and some levels can seriously take minutes to even start the mission just because the engine is so inefficient, it can't even load the map. The game has an unforgiving side, as well. Skills bought on the skill tree are permanent, and the game likes to spring surprises on you where suddenly, some skills are disabled, and a build that was powerful before suddenly fails.The strong points of this game are story and gameplay. The story is amazing. The protagonist is one of the most relatable characters in recent memory and the dialogue is very well written.The gameplay is very original, I can honestly say I've never played an RPG quite like this. Pretty much every aspect, from the battles to the stats and abilities are a means to drive the story forward. This is definitely not a game for everyone. However I would strongly suggest it to RPG fans and people looking for something new and unique. Overall 8/10.

What to say?

"Your Mileage May Vary" seems appropriate.

I got this game in a bundle, they put the episodes beyond what was in the bundle on special. I thought I should buy the episodes, but decided to try the prologue before investing any cash into the episodes.

I'm thankful I did. The game and story seem very interesting. The world that the developers created IS great looking, and I do want to see more of it, but I've given up having any fun playing this game.

The game kinda makes me feel like it's ME who's being tortured in "playing" the game rather then the main character. Most of my complaints seem to echo others who would not recommend this game (and even some that do). Moving around is too slow, the puzzles/combat seems to vary from easy to "this is making me hate my life", I also seem to think that perhaps the learning curve is at least a little bit steep, I don't seem to understand effectively what attracts/detracts/masks you from the enemy memories (something I didn't realize was happening until I got tired of the game) or how that fits into the universe (how does one hide behind a rock from a bad memory?).

Another thing that also puts me way off with this game is the lack of ability to do any kind of actual fighting. I'm all for the game not being violent, but I finally stopped playing when I felt hopeless that all I can do is push these "memories" around, and reduce their damage, while they slowly hunt me down, pushing me, reducing my movement, surrounding me, and finally killing me. If I could lock some of the enemies down by trapping them somehow, or maybe push them so far they stop being a threat. I do wonder if some of those things are options that I just don't understand.

I feel like I've given the developers a few hours of my life, and despite their valiant attempts, all they accomplished is having tortured me.

Having said all that, it might just be something I'm missing, or just not my cup of tea. The developers do seem to be competent, and able, to create something that could be intresting AND fun, they've just created something I hate.

Winter Voices is an ambitious game that has some unique and interesting ideas but its utterly mired by terrible game design and pretty pretentious writing for the most part. When it comes to the good, the game used to be buggy as hell from what I hear, but it’s fairly stable now. The idea that you run away from enemies is a neat one, but it’s way too easy to utterly gimp yourself build-wise and the later game encounters are horribly designed to point that it can make the game unwinnable, even if you’ve been using a really good build up till that point. The atmosphere is really good and the soundtrack complements it well; there's a real bleak and lonely tone that permeates the game. It also has an interesting world inspired by Norse mythology that maintains ambiguity whether or not there is anything supernatural going on. The writing when it comes to characters is alright too, it’s just the narration and the dream world that are bad. Though it also really does fall into some bad clichés (Let’s have our female protagonist get almost r*ped twice guys!) . Overall there is some quality stuff here that I liked that kept me playing until towards the end of Episode 4 but the negatives eventually dragged the game down. They really should have just made it an adventure game.

This wind...
it will remain memorable on your lips,
in your eyes will be dead this trail winds...
The game is simply a masterpiece.
When I bought it back in 2010, I thought it was a normal quest.
When you experience all that the main character feels, the tears flow.
Dramatic and juicy.

The game is broken! The game randomly turns black and you can't exit out of certain doors.

Fiquei um bom tempo em dúvida se recomendava ou não este jogo.

A história é muito boa e bastante criativa. Enquanto a maioria dos RPGs funciona, genericamente, como uma saga de um grupo de heróis para salvar o mundo ou o Universo, este jogo é a saga de uma única mulher para salvar a si mesma, à sua própria sanidade e ao seu coração. Existem outros personagens que a acompanham na jornada, mas não se enganem: trata-se de uma história introspectiva, não é sobre o que acontece FORA, é sobre o que acontece DENTRO da protagonista. Os diálogos estão ali apenas para provocá-la nessa busca por autoconhecimento. Todo o combate do jogo é dela contra seus próprios fantasmas.

O combate, aliás, é o primeiro ponto fraco do jogo. Lento, pouco inspirado, tedioso, chato mesmo no sentido mais vasto da palavra. O ritmo narrativo da história é e PRECISA ser lento, eu entendo, mas não há porque o combate se arrastar também.

Visualmente o jogo é bastante simples, mas não chega a ser feio - é o que se espera de um jogo barato. A trilha sonora é um dos pontos altos; melancólica, ajuda a compor o clima certo para o turbilhão emocional, o desespero da protagonista.

Ou seja, até aqui, enumerei mais coisas positivas que negativas. Deveria ser o suficiente para uma positivação, não?

NÃO.

O jogo é repleto de bugs. Eu não posso recomendar um jogo que tive de parar a cada 10 minutos para verificar na Internet por que fiquei presa numa porta, por que a tela ficou preta do nada, por que eu não posso matar dois inimigos ao mesmo tempo senão o jogo dá "tilt" (!!!), achar "jeitinhos" pra mudar de área, pra clicar em objetos... E pra piorar nem está detectando meus achievements.

Resumindo, o fator "entretenimento" de um jogo bugado a esse ponto é zero. Não adianta uma história interessante e inovadora se o jogo simplesmente não FLUIR.

A trama promete, mas isso tem de ser verificado.
