    The name of the game is survival, and the goal is to escape containment and leave no prisoners. It's easy to cast victims aside in the chase for more power and expanding influence. The true horror of the mission in Carrion only sets in as the credits roll.

    Games can have messages, but they can also be a venue in which we act out our most twisted fantasies free of judgment and consequence.

    Other than a few finicky control issues with grabbing the wrong object in a cluttered room or getting momentarily caught up in tight passages when playing as the beast's largest form, I had a breezy time. If you're looking for a cathartic pick-up-and-play game with little to no fat that you can slip in between this summer's massive story-driven titles, that's Carrion all the way. It's a devilish snack.

    If you love movies like The Thing and have enjoyed the games of Devolver Digital before then you should definitely give this a go. Carrion may not have the good looks of a Nathan Drake or a Lara Croft, but it has the kind of gooey, tentacle-y charm that you just can't find anywhere else.

    In spite of being quite short, and having an over-complicated system to switch between powers, Carrion is a very good game that offers something different from the mainstay. We specially like the animations of the monster and the fact that we play as a huge beast.

    Carrion is like a totally decompensated beat 'em up. Not because of its metroidvania-like level design, but because we advance destroying everything and everyone in this game. It is a power fantasy full of gore in which the protagonist can become a giant eater of men or a small and elusive mass. Simple and direct; the perfect entertainment for an afternoon.

    There just isn’t a reason to play Carrion. There is little narrative, repetitive combat, limited puzzles, and almost zero horror elements. The atmosphere is okay and it reminds me of Alien but that’s about as far as it goes with horror. Just leave this monster stuck in the vent.

    the soundtrack is amazing and it feels like an actual si-fi horror movie,and the game play dose too.
    over all this game is really unique and fun.

Pero como les comente más arriba, carecer de historia enriquece su gameplay, que si bien utilizamos 3/4 de la botonera de un joystick actual, CARRION nos regala elementos que evolucionan al personaje (estampida, electricidad, telaraña corrosiva, entre otras) para que su jugabilidad no se torne repetitiva al corto plazo. Un gameplay sumamente aprovechado, sin preámbulos ni tutoriales invasivos que apuesta a la intuición y triunfa totalmente. Otro de sus mayores logros es el sonido, sumergiendonos en una ambientación silenciosa en la que mayormente solo escuchamos los sollozos de nuestras víctimas y los pasos de la masa biomutante; acompañado de unos escenarios similares a Alien³ (1992) de Sega Genesis. En cuanto a su durabilidad no hay mucho que decir, se limita de 3 a 5 horas de juego y es perfecto para pasártelo en una tarde.

    En resumen, CARRION es un tremendo indie con una carga impresionante de gore, tumores, pixels y escenarios claustrofobicos que a pesar de su nula historia y corta duración nos mantiene entretenido cada minuto.

    It's good but short, you will get about 5 hours out of it. Majority of the game is a series of puzzles so it's not as fast paced as it could be.
