Having as its focal point a topic that will never cease to preoccupy humanity, boasting ideal scaling of the plot and being equipped with one of the best characters' roster that a representative of adventure games can present, it makes us already expect the first announcement regarding the beginning of its sequel's production.
Just like if someone had tried to mix the future after the pulse in James Cameron's Dark Angel with the ghettos and refugee camps of a war conflict, the visuals, the atmosphere and the misery surround us every second in this game, a great old-school graphic adventure made in Spain by four people. Good puzzles, curious OST and a great story make Dead Synchronicity one of those games that fans of the genre should try.
This game is one of the best adventures I have ever played - and I played a lot, let me tell you that. Normally adventure games are kind of funny and suited with a huge amount of humor, but this one really gets into your bones - the music, the art style, the story. Everything makes perfectly sense and you feel like you're a part of this post apocalyptical atmosphere.
Dead Synchonicity shows a hard and brutal truth, a possibility, how the world could be if everyone's looking out for himself. There are many games with similar topics in games, but Dead Synchro somehow manages it to get the player's attention immediately and conveys a exciting and fascinating plot which will make your pulse go faster! Fictiorama succeeded in making a super classic point and click adventure.
Are you serious? Really? I just open game and at the main menu i have goosebumps immediately! What a soundtrack..I just remember good oldschool adventures :)
Congrats! I'm glad & proud to backed this amazing game :)
A good story, interesting and engaging characters and an immersive world - those are the highlights of this game.
Abysmal voice acting, lazy animations are among the low points though. Puzzles are a bit above casual level but well integrated into the world for the most part and do not take you out of the context of the story (as happens with surprisingly many puzzle elements in good stories)
All in all - i like that game ... had it been given a visual overhaul and especially better voice acting - it could have made it to my top choices for classic adventures. Since the primary concern **** adventure is the story and the immersion of the player into the story - it is still clearly a good choice though.
I am aware that much of the visual design is just that - a design choice. but i found the very nice backgrounds contrasting with the paper-cut-out design of the characters. Personally, i would have rather gone with a design similar to that of Flashback/Another World (flatshade vector models) - with fluid but low detail animation - instead of the more detailed and barely animated design adopted - but that is a matter of taste i think.
This game is gloomy and provides the player with quite a few bitter pills to swallow. It's a postapokalyptic, dystopian, punk and nihilistic ride of what may or maybe not our future one day. The most intriguing thing about the setting is the people, their relations, their societies, their bussinesses. Bizzare as it maybe it also makes quite a lot of sense and that makes it even scarier. Anyway, well written and spoken dialogues, very good comic graphics, quite a few bright ideas and superb storytelling that makes you discover the story the same way you rebuild a **** mosaic. I like that a lot. Can't think of any downsides apart from the ending. Me and my partner had really great time playing this.
Great game. The story and the soundtrack are really the two points that stand out from the very beginning. The graphics are hand drawn and the animations are limited. I'm personally a fan of more realistic graphics (like those in Dracula:Path of the Dragon for example) but some people prefer a more simplistic approach. I think the former would suit this game very well though. It's not a lengthy game by any means. I managed to finish it in about 5 hours while checking every area thoroughly. It is however very atmospheric. Overall, a great experience I would say !
SummaryA dying reality, a universe that is fading into the background. A merciless world that gets sick and vanishes. No past, no present, no future; only the impending moment of “dead synchronicity” ahead. Will you be able to stop it? Because, otherwise... what will you do when Time dissolves itself?
