Anyone play The Sexy Brutale? Looks interesting just never heard of it.
I bought it during a previous sale, because the premise looked really unique and seemed like it had so much potential.
I had actually been waiting for it to go on sale; watching for it every single week, so I was pretty hyped.
Overall, I would say it was a decent game. Not nearly as creative as I expected. Without spoiling too much, you play as a dude who is trying to prevent murders. The entire game takes place in one in-game "day," and the day repeats over and over, Groundhog's Day style. You take what you've learned in previous days to make better decisions in future days.
The game had so much potential to be so creative. But, honestly, even though I played the game only a couple months ago, I am finding it hard to remember any of the "solutions." The groundhogs day style of gameplay is almost wasted considering how tame the puzzle-solving is. I wont spoil any unless you really want me to.
Couple things that need special mention:
1. Your character moves so slowly. There is no "run" button. You trot along at what I would describe as "old man speed." It is frustratingly slow.
2. Going from one room to the next brought the game to a screeching halt. Every time I switched rooms, it lagged for 5 or so seconds. This game is not what I would call a graphical powerhouse, so I have no idea how it performed so poorly. Couple that with the incredibly slow movement speed, and the task of moving from one side of the casino to the other often made me groan.
I dont regret the purchase; I like supporting indie games, and I got it on sale. But it is largely forgettable and I would grant it a 7 out of 10.
