PlayDead’s Inside Makes Us Feel Weird

Firstly this game kind of just crept up on us. Our Inside imminent release senses didn’t tingle until we bumped into reviews of game. It is receiving many positive reviews and some even calling it a master piece. So we decided to buy the game and play it for ourselves.

The game doesn’t take any time to introduce the characters or what is going on in its world. Instead it asks the player to find out for themselves. You take control of a nimble pre-teen boy running from unknown forces that seem to want to kill us (we think). They are not afraid to shoot you or send their dogs on you. At this point we know that something is very very wrong in this world. The queue of what we think are humans being hurried into trucks to be taken somewhere is another reminder to the player to just keep running.

You do eventually escape your pursuers and are met with some quite nice puzzles that tickle your brain. Regardless though many questions arise. Why are we (humans) being shipped of somewhere. Who are these oppressors, why did they kill all our live stock ( well most ), who is this boy we are controlling, why is he on the run, why was he not captured like everyone else. There is also the matter of why all the other captured humans walk around like a bunch of zombies. We at one point actually control a few with a weird head device (shiver). Kind of reminds us of the parasite bugs from limbo. We are going to do posts on each episode we play through on our YouTube channel. Please do join us on this journey on what we think is going to one of the best games of this year. Here is part 1:

Quantum Break is AWESOME (opinion)

Yeah, yeah the game got mixed reviews. Some liked it, some disliked it and apparently not many loved it. I think a review said it perfectly by saying “There is nothing like it and there probably won’t be again”. Here is why:

Art direction

quantum pic 1

The art direction is great but not because the characters and environments look detailed. It’s because of the effects that are applied to them. For example when a fracture happens (time literally breaks ) everything becomes well… broken. Lets just say the pictures do it no justice. In motion everything looks pretty crazy. We really wonder how Remedy managed to create this effect.

Sound design

Now we think the sound design of this game greatly complements the art direction. The way the sound clipped and cracks when you use your dash power. The bass drops that accompany your time freeze bubble. There is this crazy scene where a massive broken ship comes down on the main character. A time fracture happens which creates a volatile environment of breaking metal that reverses back and forth on your path. The sounds you hear in this scene are just ear melting. Watch the scene here

TV Show

Now leading up to the release we were confused on how they were going to tie a game and a tv show together. The show itself is actually pretty interesting. The style we feel has this modern feel like what you would expect from shows like person of interest. If you take it as seriously as it asks you to, we feel you would enjoy it.

These are just a few points we feel makes this game worth while to check out. You can find our playthrough here. Thanks for reading and keep being awesome

Everyone Deals With Depression Differently | Prisoned

Welcome to a new playthrough. LittleRocket has been playing a lot of short stories as of late and here is another one. This one is a little different though.

The story follows a lady called Judy. Judy is telling us a story about her journey with depression.

It is an interesting story because she found comfort and support from her dog. Something we feel is not done a lot in games. Everyone goes through depression differently. Each with their own story to tell. This is one of those stories.

A story told exquisitely with amazing music and a perfect tone. Last Case is a short story about Jack as he tries to find Amanda Kane. His last job. Is he a detective, or a mercenary.

I AM YOU | Being Her Darkest Friend : Part 1

After a short hiatus we are back to playing video games. This is the sequel to A Fragment Of Her. This game is much darker and deeper. As always you can watch the playthrough at the bottom of this post.

1 2

The last game ended with us smacking Mr Seligmann with our painting after he tried to force us into his office. Selina seems to now be stuck in a state of confusion and finds herself in a dark world. The first person we meet is Tomoko who if anyone else hadn’t realized, is actually a girl not a boy. Tomoko gives us the camera we had before, and we are tasked with going back to the university to get a picture of her favorite sitting spot. When we finish that Tomoko points to the right. We walk that way and find Mr Seligmann.

3 45

After Tomoko, it is time to face Mr Seligmann himself.The encounter we had with him is what LittleRocket believes sent Selina into this dark world of uncertainty. He gives us a paint brush. When we arrive at the university we find a group of students who admire Mr Seligmann. Our job is to show them his true colors. After showing all the students and getting back to the dark world, Mr Seligmann points to the left and some large eyes appear in the middle.

56

The picture you see above is what those eyes were attached to. Both Mr Seligmann and Tomoko are pointing at the monster as if to say watch out or behold. The monster tells us that they are our conscience but it on the other hand is us. This the Selina’s darkest friend. The dark side of her that she spoke of in the first game. We are apparently one in the same. This is where the episode ends.

Creepy Cat | Hard Feelings

1

2

Welcome to a new short playthrough of a free game called Hard Feelings. You can get the game here. All the events in this game happen in a single house with a creepy cat that seems to want to get you through a basement door. When we finally get into the basement room there is a man with a bag on his head. There are some missing posters in the room and oh forgot to mention we shoot him. Don’t really know if he kidnapped the missing people or we are the kidnapper ourselves. As always the video is at the bottom of this post.
