Our videos of Event[0]

If you've always wondered what you would do if you were stranded in space with a buggy AI for sole companion, Event[0] is probably the game you've been waiting for. This first person puzzle/narrative game is a lot more original than it looks as the player himself is in charge of all the typing. You alone must decide what to ask Kaizen, you alone must type the answers you think are appropriate. The computer's reactions aren't always logical, but it's all justified by the fact that it is buggy after years spent alone without any maintenance. It's an odd and intriguing title forcing you to build a relationship with an AI, and it actually works! However, you should be aware that the experience is rather short, about 3 to 4 hours, so you'll have to ask yourself if you think Event[0] is worth your money. Much like in the game itself, only you can find the proper answer.

Note: The game was updated after we captured the videos, fixing the mouse smoothness issue. When moving the character, the frame-rate still doesn't feel as smooth as it should though, despite what the Steam FPS counter says.

I am running this on a gtx980ti OC'd to 1.5ghz on the core, a 4790k @ 4.7ghz and 16gb ddr3 ram (at 1440p resolution), and I found that it was using 100% GPU and 70% CPU. how did you find the load on your setup?

I am enjoying the game though - something completely different and refreshing.

edit: typo spotted: "and it actuzally works" should be "and it actually works" :)

I didn't check actually so I don't know.

Thanks for the typo, it's been a crazy week so far. :)

No problem, I can imagine you guys are busy :)

It seems to be quite a hog on resources but I am enjoying the game nonetheless!

    GriftGFX @Megido: Well I'm not about bowling and shit.. but there's quite a bit of good content. More than most linear games. (1 minute ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: Id on't know. I didn't finish GTA5 but i felt like a LOT of the missions were complete throwaway garbage. The main story was mostly decent, but the rest? (12 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And right now there's a bit of a backlash against sandbox games in general. (26 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are plenty of examples of poor open world games, but there's also stuff like GTA5. I think it's a bit more nuanced than open world = bad is all. (28 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: I think you nailed it there though. "The best bits". Most open world sandbox games are filled with mediocrity and some good bits. (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yes.. that "build a world" part is where they design it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: except not many are. they build a world, and stick quests in it. that's why open world RPG's quests are typically so shallow. (1 Hour ago)
