    The Hex is a brilliant game that mixes six different genres: it is a shooter, a walking simulator, a fighting game, a classic JRPG, a platform, a tactical RPG and a surreal game that you have to play.

    It’s six hours of a diversified gameplay with loads of secrets and good music in the background. And the finale is so delightful I wanted to clap during the credits. [13/2018, p.72]

    An eclectic and unconventional videogame, which combines a rather original game structure to a salacious and sarcastic self-mockery.

    The Hex is a really solid game that does a lot of very creative things. It’s definitely worth the asking price. However, it certainly won’t set your loins on fire and leave you dry humping the air for more. It’s an enjoyable jaunt with some cool ideas. Nothing more, nothing less.

  1. It’s very funny, so busy with good ideas, and really damned strange.

    Combining multiple genres and examining the relationship between game and audience, The Hex is a poignant, witty, cleverly written adventure spanning six protagonists and six very different – but smartly cohesive – stories.

    Great follow up to Pony Island. Everything you'd expect from the creator of that game with the storytelling and atmosphere brilliant. TheGreat follow up to Pony Island.

    The Hex mixes and matches some cool ideas and the final two chapters are particularly well crafted and emotionally raw but the overall storyThe Hex mixes and matches some cool ideas and the final two chapters are particularly well crafted and emotionally raw but the overall story is not entirely coherent and, even around six hours in terms of playtime, some of the mechanics are rather limited. Daniel Mullins has great ideas and delivers something unique with his games but a little more care when it comes to the execution would really elevate his releases. Expand

    Oynadığım indie oyunlar arasında kalitesini gerçekten hissetiren bir oyun oldu. Oyun bir barda balıyor ve barmen bize bir cinayet işlendiğiniOynadığım indie oyunlar arasında kalitesini gerçekten hissetiren bir oyun oldu. Oyun bir barda balıyor ve barmen bize bir cinayet işlendiğini ve bunu çözmemiz gerektiğini söylüyor. 6 karakter ve 6 sekansdan oluşuyor. Her karakter farklı oyun tarzında karşımıza çıkıyor. Ana hikaye ise; bir oyun yapımcısının geçmişinde yaptığı oyunların ana karakterlerinin, farklı nedenlerle oyunlarının iptal edildikten sonra oyun stüdyolarına karşı başlattıkları isyan. Oyunda adventure, fighting, mmo, rpg, fps, hotline miami tarzı ve what remains of Edith Finch tarzında farklı karakterlerin senaryolarını oynuyoruz. Oyunun hikayesi ve oynayan oyuncuyu da bu hikayeye dahil etmesi güzel. Gizlenmiş detayları ve bize daha oyun yapımı göstermesi muhteşem. Grafikleri de güzel. Eksi sayabileceğim bir yanı yok. İndie oyunlar arasında şimdiden benim için yeri ayrı olan bir oyun oldu. Aynı yapımcının bir önceki oyunu "Pony Island" da çok beğenilmiş. Vakit bulunca onu da oynayacağım. 8.5/10 Expand
