    Breathedge is an ironic outer space survival adventure game. Take on the role of a simple guy called the Man who is just carrying his grandpa's ashes to a galactic funeral and suddenly finds himself in the middle of a universal conspiracy.

    A massive space hearse suffers a wreck in the deep space, leaving the area filled with debris, coffins, dead passengers and yourself. Survive in this interstellar dump, uncover a global conspiracy, save the princess and don't break your fingers while tapping the keyboard as you travel around the world (keeping your display on for full immersion is advised).

    It took a long time for our ancestors to develop because they had no electrical tape. You have it and you know how to use it. With this magical artifact, you can create a vast variety of useless objects and throw them out of the airlock! There are also many useful items to be created, but be careful as this may result in completing the game.

    When all your neighbors just hover around in vacuum doing nothing but playing dead, various tools and gears will help you become the worst noisy neighbor ever. Create a unique space station, provide it with oxygen and electricity, install all kinds of equipment from solar panels to a hamster farm, and turn it into a real bachelor pad by stuffing it with furniture mixed with all kinds of junk.

    Yes, you heard that right, it's your own private car horn! Besides that, you can assemble a small rocket, ride the dead or build a large space shuttle. Transportation helps you move faster, evade obstacles and see the death screen after a head-on collision.

    Surviving in space is fun, and surviving with a story is even more fun because you can just skip it all to annoy the scriptwriters! Breathedge offers you an intriguing plot with lots of dark jokes, cynical dialogues, an immortal chicken, a mad enemy, as well as badly animated cutscenes and other features that make an excellent game an excellent game.

    Despite some performance problems, it is a great survival with history. His own style and cliché satire is very good, and has a lot of extras to collect. Recommended for those looking for a more calm and frightless survival.

    Breathedge ultimately remains fairly classic in its survival mechanics and does not succeed in everything it undertakes in this area. It turns out to be rather repetitive and unfortunately quite timid in its call for exploration, a shame, given the beauty and originality of its yet attractive universe. In addition, the game also sins with some unfortunate choices regarding inventory management, the resource collection loop or the durability of equipment, too ephemeral. With a shift in tone at the midpoint, which relegates survival to the closet, the Breathedge experience is not always balanced, despite some real good ideas and a story that follows without displeasure, for a little one. about twenty hours.

    Breathedge doesn’t quite hit that Galaxy Quest level of parody that is on par with its subject, but it is still reasonably entertaining. Unfortunately the gameplay itself suffers from a few serious pacing and mechanical issues, but the story may be funny enough to push you through. Ultimately Breathedge is, at best, a mediocre survival game with a pretty good story. While I wouldn’t suggest this as your first survival game, if you’re a fan of the genre, specifically Subnautica, you’ll likely find some things to enjoy here.

    The game features some very well implemented gameplay mechanics, as well as a huge variety of elements, but its experience also finds itself harmed by a rather repetitive and monotonous action, long loading times, and a change near its end that makes the game too linear.

    That’s not to say Breathedge doesn’t have its moments. It can be genuinely funny when it lets itself, and once you reach the point where the survival aspects start to open up and oxygen management becomes less of a pain, it even starts to get a little fun. But the journey to that point is too long and too laborious, and as soon as Breathedge finds its groove, it cuts away to a particularly unsatisfying end.

    Breathedge is a game at odds with itself. It tries to tell a compelling story, but the core narrator drones wearisome and unfunny dialogue; the world is beautiful and begging to be explored, but only ever an inch at a time; environments are curated with dark humour, but the gameplay loop doesn't allow time to take it in; and, worst of all, it undercuts players that commit hours to these systems by replacing them with a grim excuse for a walking simulator. For a title set in the vast expanse of space where anything is possible, it just isn't worth the time.

    This is the best loot game in space. An excellent storyline and tons of sparkling humor from the developers add a lot of fun to the gameplay. For the irony of the developers, a separate respect!

    A good game that has only gotten better over time. If the team had been bigger, as well as the budget of the game, it would have been even cooler.

It's still playable as long as you remember to save often. There is some sketchy behavior depending on your save point (for instance getting killed while the game is loading, or sinking in a zero gravity area after loading).

    I finished the game, but trying to warp back to the Shepherd site after completing all chapters causes the game to crash every time.

    Lot's of things to like about this game (background music, humor, varied play mechanics).

    The resource gathering early on is more chore than fun.

    It's a shame that a resource gathering robot isn't implemented into the available technologies - similar to peons in Warcraft with a Russian flavor - instead of "Okay" and "Yes, my liege", the robots would acknowledge with a "Dah, Comrade Captain" or "K Vashim Uslugam" (At your service in Russian).

    Alguna vez te imaginaste como un astronauta que queda varado en el espacio y debe buscar la forma de sobrevivir en el espacio, eso es lo queAlguna vez te imaginaste como un astronauta que queda varado en el espacio y debe buscar la forma de sobrevivir en el espacio, eso es lo que ofrece breathedge con un poco más de comedia y unos cuantos problemas técnicos muy molestos.

    Las comparaciones entre este juego y subnautica se hacen obvias, aunque este viene siendo una experiencia mucho más humorística y con un enfoque un tanto distinto, la historia en si está contada mucho más directamente, con una curva de dificultad un tanto más estricta.

    En este juego estaremos encarnando a un superviviente de un accidente espacial, tu misión es el buscar una manera de sobrevivir teniendo cuidado de mantenerte a salvo, vigilando el oxígeno y los alimentos para no morir de hambre, también existen diversos enemigos los cuales pueden ponerte en problemas.
    A nivel narrativo el juego está bien, no es realmente algo muy innovador y sin duda hay muchos más títulos que lo llevan de mejor forma, la curva de dificultad de las primeras horas es, a mi parecer, muy alta llegando a ser de algún modo frustrante, esto principalmente a las mecánicas del mismo, en subnautica por ejemplo la mecánica del oxígeno puede causar problemas pero es fácil recuperar el oxígeno en cambio en breathedge esto es un poco más complejo debido a que para poder recuperar el oxígeno hay muy pocos puntos en los que esto se pueda lo que puede hacer que toda la exploración que realizamos se acabe en solo cosa de segundos, otra mecánica importante es la de las herramientas las cuales tienen usos limitados y hace que al terminarse estas simplemente se rompan y tengas que volver a buscar los recursos para volver a hacerlas lo que hace que el gameplay se vuelva lento, estás mecánicas hacen que el juego sea un poco irritante en algunos puntos aunque también hay puntos a favor como la construcción de bases (la cual siempre encuentro muy interesante) y los vehículos y el entorno lo cual te hace sentirme como lo que eres, un pasajero de una nave estación que quedó en la nada y trata de sobrevivir.

    Un punto muy importante del título es el humor o comedia del mismo el cual está muy presente en todo momento, desde la inteligencia artificial que te hace bromas y te entrega consejos y uno que otro chiste, los personajes secundarios que no te toman en serio o tratan de meterte en un lío pensando que no se nota o los objetivos PRINCIPALES absurdos como mandar mayonesa a un reactor nuclear para disminuir la radiación y el mismo juego en sí que en diversos puntos me ha hecho meterme a las configuraciones del mismo para cumplir uno o varios objetivos.
    El título en si está bien, tiene una buena idea y una ejecución buena con algunos problemas en sus mecánicas, pero sin duda lo que más lo afecta es la mala optimización del mismo, a veces se queda pegado por minutos, texturas que no cargan del todo, coliders impresos, y lo peor de todo los crasheos del mismo que a veces simplemente se cierra perdiendo todo tu progreso, borrando elementos del juego como bases o vehículos en incluso borrando tus partidas guardadas, hace que sea muy frustrante si esto se arreglará sin duda tendría una mejor nota
