Our videos of Song of Horror

We've already told you about Song of Horror but it's back on Gamersyde since Spanish developer Protocol Games launched a second Kickstarter campaign in order to finance their project. So far, they have only gathered €20,000 out of the €50,000 they need for the development, but there are still 25 days left. Until then, take a look at these two videos captured from the press demo. As it is now, the game seems to be needlessly unforgiving, sending the main character to a certain death a little too often. It wouldn't bother us that much if it didn't seem so unfair most of the time, but either there is something we don't get or Gabriel can only count on sheer luck to stay alive. Random attacks are meant to put the player under constant stress, but we've been more frustrated than scared for the moment. It's a shame as we rather like the atmosphere they have managed to convey.

It looks like people have really good ideas of horror games, but lacking the team and skills to turn it into reality.

I like it, it feels like the classic silent hill games, plus it has demons. (saw trying harder video.) wonder if you get weapons. I hope the developers go deep with this, it's got the right mechanics.

    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? (11 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And right now there's a bit of a backlash against sandbox games in general. (25 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. (27 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. (34 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)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's no reason an open world can't be curated and designed. The best bits of every good sandbox are. (1 Hour ago)
