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 FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (6 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (7 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (8 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (8 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (8 Hours ago)
