Aw, come on. Decades of experience in adventure games, and you can’t even turn on a hidden light switch!
A working flashlight with good batteries is missing, too
Have a look in the fridge!
Like the previous re-release (Fenimore Fillmore: 3 Skulls of the Toltecs) it comes with GOG achievements.
P.S.: GOG also released some other (non-adventure) series which people with Steam aversion can finally enjoy. Although in the last mentioned series one game is missing which title I cannot remember anyway.
Unfortunately the previous one (3 skulls) was
an abomination not entirely satisfactory…
I mean, I tried several times to pick it up again but it’s unplayable…
And I now have all GOG Wolfenstein games… again.
First impressions are mildly negative.
- Weird controls: press E to pick up stuff like an annoying modern shooter, and Left Alt + S for some kind of bizarre extra far down crouch. This took me way too much effort to figure out. The game almost seems like it was made for a controller, which works a lot better, except then you suffer from using a controller. But since this doesn’t seem to be the kind of shooter where movement precision matters too much, this kind of thing may be the Steam controller’s time crowning achievement. Pity the Xbox One controller rumbles much better though.
- It seems surprisingly easy in Bring It On. That’s not really a negative, because you can change the difficulty up or down at any time. But I thought Half-Life on normal was plenty challenging pretty much from the get-go.
- Cutscene movies. No, you haven’t earned it. But at least there are no QTEs in 'em.
- Somewhat ugly game so far, in UHD with everything maxed out. Doesn’t really matter of course, but it’s not a visual feast like Remember Me or Tomb Raider.
- Health slowly regenerates like a modern shooter, but imo that’s a good thing. Otherwise you’re just going around with quick save/quick load until you don’t lose (too much) health in an encounter.
- You can sneak up on guards and silent kill them, like in the original games (and was that also in RtCW?)
- Metal Nazi guard dogs
Wait, does this mean they aren’t customisable?
Same here! Well, I haven’t played Miles Edgeworth Investigations 2 or either DGS game.
Hmm, mentioning Layton vs Phoenix Wright reminds me that I need to make progress in a project…
They are, but you can’t customize E to “just run over ammo & guns to pick it up.” It doesn’t seem to add anything to the game. If you were out of ammo it’d be ever so slightly more challenging to pick up more but basically you’re just pressing that button constantly for no apparent reason.
It’s somewhat similar to how you were kissing the walls in Wolfenstein 3D all the time while pressing use (space by default iirc), except there it was to find hidden rooms. There was a purpose to it. And it was an optional bonus.
It’s described as featuring “P&C Puzzles and classic adventure gameplay”, but from the trailer it looks more like an RPG. I think I’ll wait for some reviews, but it does look interesting.
I haven’t played any of the former games of the developer due to their horror theme, but this one looks a little less bleak.

Hi guys, I’m playing Void Breach https://store.steampowered.com/app/1204710/Void_Breach/
it feels like playing King’s Quest 1 or Space quest 1, but with fair puzzles. Not all puzzles are inspired, but better than most games. It’s point and click, no keyboard needed.
I know it’s not “just released”, in fact it’s totally not released yet, but cut me some slack, it’s my game
I’m proud to announce that Kill Yourself has passed the Steam review and will be available soon*!
@Ignacio looking forward to your updated store translation, sorry if I published a revised Google translation, but it was needed to have their approval I’ll change it as soon as I get yours.
*expected date: March 30th. Guess why.
I’ll get to it today or tomorrow!
