AGS Panel Review
"Another great one by Ben304. There's an intriguing story here, but not a whole lot in the way of puzzles or gameplay to back it up. More of an "experience," and a charming one at that."
While the few puzzles in the game don't really feature until the second half, you quickly realise at the end that this is a feature of the story as you are guided in the beginning to your ultimate destiny.
But I must confess I didn't like the game much in whole. Puzzles are... well, too easy. I played your "Shifter's Box" earlier and loved it, so I expected something better here. I had a slight feeling of being tricked when game ended.
Nevertheless, the story was intruguing, and has some interesting philosophy behind. I'd really wish I had more immersion into this, maybe if game was longer, or had more characters, or events... difficult to say.
However the game is also extremely linear. Not so much a "game" as an "experience" as they say. Basically you are dropped into location A, where you proceed to complete objective A, and then the story obligingly moves you along to location B where the process is repeated. What I really wanted to do was explore the good-looking world and dig into the intriguing background story, but instead I was trapped in a one-way tunnel watching the story go by. I felt more like the game was playing me and also that I was back in Soviet Russia, not in the game world, which was where I really wanted to be.
So in conclusion, awesome, but meh. Does that make sense?
The various aspect of the game (backgrounds, dialogues, music, scripting) come seamlessly together in 'Heed'.
A touching interactive fiction you should play right now!
Heed is more of a story than a game. Although it doesn't really to build up momentum, it will keep you glued to the screen with its charming graphics, melancholy music and interesting story telling.
