Description: In Trajectory, the player assumes the role of an inmate of undisclosed background who is completing the last few days of their sentence aboard a prison vessel that is owned by a clandestine, quasi-governmental agency called Orbitek.
During each playthrough, the player experiences the last few days of the prisoner’s sentence in orbit. The prisoner performs his daily routines onboard the vessel and follows the orders of an Orbitek warden given through an intercom. That is of course, if you choose to follow them. The missions vary greatly from general maintenance tasks to daring and valorous exploits! In between them, the player can explore the inmate module he is trapped in. The game has many varying endings and with each playthrough, the experience differs.
Review: Trajectory is an odd VR game for sure. It is not one genre of game, but many all wrapped in a sci-fi puzzle game of sorts. First of all, it has to be said that it does look good. Not amazing, but more than good enough to be immersive. Then you play various “missions” that consist of random things. The good news here is no two games are ever the same making it more than payable. There are also multi endings to be found as well. The only main problem with this game is that there are many “mini-games” or puzzles that are not easy and you need to take a long time to work out what to do before you can even start the puzzle.
This is just my own opinion of course, but I feel £6.19 is asking a little too much for this game and I would wait for it to be at least half of that before making a purchase. But it is worth a look for sure, especially if you enjoy your puzzle games.
