Description: Torn is a dark science-fiction mystery. Seep in a forgotten forest, video blogger Katherine Patterson discovers an abandoned mansion, filled with strange machines and disturbing experiments. This is the home of Dr Lawrence Talbot, who was reported missing more than 64 years ago. Patterson realizes this could be worth millions, the story of her career. But when she meets Dr Talbot in person — alive, trapped in a strange new dimension, and missing his body — Patterson realizes she was wrong. This is the story of a lifetime.
Torn opens as a narrative puzzle game, then evolves into a dark, character-driven story as you slowly uncover the truth about Talbot, and the new dimension he calls “The Parallel.” Remember everything you see, for, in Talbot’s world, truth is nothing more than the invention of the mind.
Review: It’s hard not to love Torn. With its AA soundtrack, pretty great graphics and even a semi-interesting storyline, this is a game you can easily get into and enjoy. Sadly that enjoyment doesn’t last long, but not because of the lack of content, more the lack of imagination implemented into that content! The puzzles are all so boring and seem to be the same thing over and over again. Then these niggles all accumulate into an ending leaving you wondering what on earth you spent the last few hours doing, its as if it trips over its own feet on the way to greatness. But still, this might be one to get in a sale but do make sure it is a good sale before you buy it.
