Description: Imagine waking up in an unknown environment. It’s dark. You have no idea where and who you are. Only a small alarm light flashes somewhere in the room. Something seems off. The room is filled with a strange soundscape. Start your adventure now and bring light into the unknown darkness.
Review: ‘despatch: Entity Astray’ is a Russin puzzle/adventure game that does tend to chuck you into the deep end from the word go. Its often not so much the case that the puzzles themselves are hard, it is more the lack of storyline and guidance in any way. Often you are dumped into a room and that is it. Nothing visible, seemingly nothing to do at all. The good news is the game looks pretty good and the controls are simple to get used to, but maybe a little overcomplicated. I do recommend this game quite easily, but I do wish it was about 50% cheaper than the current £11.39 asking price. While this game does lack a lot of polish it also has a lot of effort put into it, just maybe in the wrong areas.
