    Tormentum - Dark Sorrow is a light in the darkness - or is that the other way around? You'll be hard pressed to find a game as stunningly dark as this. If you think you can deal with the incredibly dark themes and art style, you'll be well rewarded with an intriguing story set in a surreal word even H.R. Giger would be proud to call his own.

    This is a great graphic adventure that works pretty well, but really shines because of its art direction.

    A gloomy and fascinating take on the point-and-click adventure game. While it’s not perfect—the puzzles could be a little more inventive, and the writing sometimes feels a little like angsty high school poetry, the breathtaking artwork, and well-developed world more than make up for it.

    Tormentum is a surprisingly addictive adventure game, despite being seemingly so basic.

    Tormentum: Dark Sorrow keeping its promises. It's not a perfect game, but one that the point and click lover have to try.

    A unique travel trough your worst nightmares on a classic point'n click style. It's art it's just amazing, but fails on offering a real challenge that last long enough to become a classic.

    In the end, I was allowed to play Tormentum like I play all games that ask you to make moral choices. I skated through the game unlocking cages, freeing prisoners, and forgiving murderers with impunity. And I wasn’t punished for it even once.

    The dark surreal artwork is the real star of the show in Tormentum.
    The sense of "other worldliness" is a treat, and scrolling from one screen to another as you progress uncovers wonderful new landscapes and characters.
    The game itself is pretty mediocre. Puzzles are repetitive and easy, and the moral choices that determine the ending are pointless in that there is no background information from which to make any "meaningful" choice.
    Weirdly, it is the games brevity that makes playing it enjoyable

    I actually liked the game - but if it were longer it would start to bore me.

I was familiar with Beksinskis paintings before and could absolutely find references to his paintings.

    The end game quality and design surprised me in a very positive way, it is encouraging you to replay the game in the opposite manner / paying more attention to your decisions / preventing yourself from accidentally killing folks and to rethink your everyday choices you make in real life.

    Bottom line: refreshing experience, linear, foreseeable outcomes and a 100% point and click title, love to detail, ideal length, nice puzzles.

    If Tormentum is a point and click game, well... every powerpoint presentation, with a good soundtrack, it's a point and click game. It'sIf Tormentum is a point and click game, well... every powerpoint presentation, with a good soundtrack, it's a point and click game. It's simply too short (2-3 hours), lacking in animations and amount/quality of dialogues. Really: don't expect anything profound from this game or you will be disappointed, like me Expand
