Those who have followed the terrible release of Inner Chains know that great graphics and art style aren't enough to make a good title. Despite a pretty solid atmosphere, this first game by Telepaths' Tree is plagued with problems, one of them being its very poor optimization. GTX 1080 or not, expect some noticeable frame drops every time too many effects kick in, which we could not even try to reduce by lowering the game's resolution as it would not propose anything below 2048*1536 on our 4K TV. Character and camera movement is also very clunky, not to mention how slow and uninteresting gameplay is. Even though we like the visual style a lot, we couldn't play more than an hour. A real shame.

@Driftwood:

"GTX 1080"

You keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

A single GTX 1080 is very low-end. If you want high-end, you need 4 GTX Titan 1080 Ti or at the bare minimum, 4 GTX Titan X (Pascal). It's not the game, it's your PC. You need to upgrade hard, man. :P

This game and Agony are kinda hard to distinguish.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And they have their own stories to tell, their own games to design. If they're making a new film in a franchise you enjoy, do you also not care who makes it? (22 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, I wouldn't want Naughty Dog anywhere near Half Life. They'd turn it into a generic and linear run of the mill action shooter that looks good, but overrated. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not like those people working on this imaginary game aren't working on other real games instead anyway. Nothing is lost. (34 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I don't prefer to have "nothing" because I bother to recognize Valve's actual game development. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX "I don't care who develops it" is a really weird thing for a person who cares about games to say. (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But I understand that thought process in today's highly branded market. Gotta have that franchise name attached to a product to care about it. (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: No, I prefer creators keep their content to themselves instead of farming it out to third parties because it's a terrible way to make video games. (37 minutes ago)
