Description: Set off on an amazing journey through Unknown Fate, a strongly story-driven first-person adventure with many puzzles to solve and enemies to beat. Become Richard, who suddenly passes seamlessly from the real world into a surreal universe. You’ll encounter strange characters, unfamiliar artefacts and scenes resembling Richard’s former life, of which he has lost all memory. Yet, he knows that this is not where he is supposed to be. The world he has come to inhabit is strange and distant. He feels the urge to find out more about this surreal universe and the creatures inhabiting it, in order to find a way out – out and back to his real self, his real-life that he knows he has yet to fully recall.
Engulfed in mystery, you take cautious steps deep into the unknown, only to have your mind swept away by yet more questions, nibbling at your grasp of what you think is real and true – your certainties will start to crumble. With no way back and a strong urge for answers beating in your temples, you push on, striving to get a grip on the odd difficulties surrounding you, eagerly awaiting the moment your mind will become untangled when the thread of your journey finally unravels all the way. But there is some way yet to go…
Review: While ‘Unknown Fate’ doesn’t have the best storyline nor the best graphics there are times when it is truly enjoyable. This is a classic style adventure game and there are some interesting puzzles to solve and some good old fashioned action to take out some scary monsters. With just over 5 hours of gameplay here this game does allow you to feel immersed, but there are times when it falls short and will leave you very much like myself having mixed feelings about it. But I still recommend it and think it is worth a look, but maybe consider waiting for a sale to make sure you get the best value for money.
