Stories Untold - Teaser Trailer
Mar 8, 2017It’s a fantastic, fascinating example of interactive visual storytelling. It would absolutely only work in the form that the developers have created, and it’s a game I’ll no doubt be permanently using as an example in future when I want to illustrate just what can be done in the genre. It’s also an excellent, creepy story which is deftly told, and a game I can recommend without reservation.
Mar 15, 2017In this innovative title from No Code, players can relive classic horror movies and late-night television, enjoy simple, light, but intuitive gameplay, and discover a spine-tingling story that’s guaranteed to keep them on edge long after they’ve finished playing.

Word of initial advice: This is not a horror / survival-type game, it barely even has what most people expect from a 'game'. It'sLoved it.
Word of initial advice: This is not a horror / survival-type game, it barely even has what most people expect from a 'game'. It's little stylized riddles with an overlying story that unfolds the more you progress. Someone here complained that the story was done before, sure, ALL stories have been told already (-maybe he/she expected something else because of the games title, which has to do with something in the story itself). It's the first thing you learn when you write stories. They have all been done. The question is HOW will you tell yours? And this is where this game gets really rewarding. I'm not that much of a fan of text adventures, but these bits are short and fun and only make up a fourth of the game. The atmosphere is fantastic, I really liked the presentation and the way the stories were connected. It has a great amount of abstract thinking behind it, parabels. They all make sense in the end. When you're done with it you'll know you've got served a variation of a known plot, but you won't have gotten it served this way. I think this is a little masterpiece.… Expand
May 28, 2019I personally LOVE this Game. I had the luck to NOT know, what will happen in the Game, so I was completley blasted from the Twists this GameI personally LOVE this Game. I had the luck to NOT know, what will happen in the Game, so I was completley blasted from the Twists this Game gave me.
I don't wanna spolier to much, but you have to think a bit and to solve some riddles, which all were in the end not really hard, and when you manage the Game feels very rewarding.
And the Storytelling is GREAT of this Game. If u are a NERD - Give it a Shoot !!!!… Expand

It's definitely not without flaws, but story-wise is was a very good experience. Very short and to the point but still very well done in my opinion.
It also gives you a taste of text-based adventure games, which is quite antique by nowadays and barely done anywhere, with not much gamers left with the patience to go through it.
In Stories Untold though, it is done just fine.
I'd say it's a fine integration of text-based and point n' click, although, eventually - the "gameplay" itself is quite light and limited.
Which bring me to the probably only downside in here - the gameplay is indeed very limited. There's not much of a "game" here, actually. And in what there IS, no spoiling anything, but you usually should do some VERY SPECIFIC actions, usually it would be obvious WHAT, but not always.
At times it's not too clear what to do next, the game can be slightly frustrating.
Although, I guess that in a way this is also a taste of classic adventure games.
Still, being very linear and with thin gameplay, Stories Untold ends with a very low replayability value. It's a great one-timer, the story and tension is very well built. I may come around to play this again someday, when I get nostalgic. Besides that, not anytime soon.… Expand

Mar 2, 2017Should have called it "Stories Told". Or maybe "Stories Old"
Excellent execution marred by a horribly cliched story that we've all heardShould have called it "Stories Told". Or maybe "Stories Old"
Excellent execution marred by a horribly cliched story that we've all heard before, and some technical issues.
I suppose it fits with the retro aesthetic, but it's not original, nor particularly interesting. Nice gimmicks coating a fairly mundane experience.… Expand
Jun 29, 2019This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The first few chapters were quite interesting, and I rather enjoyed them. However the last one felt too much like a bait & switch. Also the lack of choice in the final chapter made the whole thing feel like I'd wasted my time.… Expand
