    Tormentum: Dark Sorrow
    by OhNoo Studio - March, 2015

    Available at:
    VOTE to get it at GOG HERE
    Steam (has DEMO)

    TORMENTUM is a dark Point & Click adventure game.


    The dreamlike, nightmarish atmosphere of the game was inspired by works of painters H.R. Giger and Zdzislaw Beksinski. The game's final look and feel was also strongly influenced by the universes of games such as Demon's Souls or Dark Seed. This unique mixture gave life to a bleak and depressing world.


    Those are however the least of his problems as the airship lowers its flight towards a huge gloomy castle which soon becomes his prison. Thus begins the surreal story bordering somewhere between dream and reality...

    Key features:


    • THE GAME WORLD: 3 realms, differing in architecture and creatures inhabiting them. You'll meet characters with unique personalities who will help you - or try to prevent you from - reaching your goal.
    • ART: 75 hand-painted stages. The game also features over a hundred additional screens as well as dozens of paintings created by the mad painter residing in the cathedral.
    • PUZZLES: During your journey you will come against 24 varied logical puzzles and minigames.
    • STORY: A dark adventure between dream and reality.
    • MUSIC: Exceptional soundtrack with over 40 tracks.


    Moreover:


    • Moral choices which will affect the game's ending.
    • 34 achievements to complete.
    • 4-6 hours gameplay.
    • Languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Polish, Russian, Italian.

    Tormentum (Casual Adventure)

    Very simple options with this one:  Sliders for music and sound effects, and full-screen or not.  In addition, there are nine languages to choose from.

    If you play the demo, you'll find that the game seems to be more of a puzzle game than an adventure, with just a few screens and puzzles before moving on to the next area.  This does NOT hold true for the rest of the game.  You'll be locked out of some areas once you leave them, but there are plenty of locations to move about, puzzles to solve, and story to discover as you progress.

    There are no hints, no skips, and no map.  I did not have any trouble completing the game, nonetheless.  Nothing I came across was frustratingly hard, and the only real problem I had was missing obvious things on the screen, like something I needed to interact with or an exit I simply didn't see. Silly face

    Every screen scrolls left and right a bit, depending on where your cursor is.  Although it would have been nice to just see the full scenes, some of the puzzles involve this scrolling mechanism, so I can't complain.

    Speaking of the puzzles, be VERY CAREFUL when you are solving them, and really pay attention to what you're doing!  Sometimes there is more than one way to solve a puzzle, and your actions really matter in this game.  Your decisions count, so choose wisely.

    The art style is dark and disturbing, but also beautifully done and very evocative. Combine this with the well-chosen music tracks, and you have a deeply environmental experience that will question your morals and life choices.

    For the achievement hunters like myself, there are 34 achievements to obtain, which will require you to play through the game at least twice.  I'm pretty sure most people won't mind going through a second time, as there are two endings!

    There is a lot of bonus content to look at, which is not necessary to complete the game, but will enhance the experience.  Some of these things will earn your achievements (such as reading all of the books,) so be aware of that.

    While Tormentum: Dark Sorrow is on the short side (around four hours for my first play-through,) the multiple endings and fascinating world which the devs have created make it absolutely worth owning.  Definitely recommended, and I'm looking forward to OhNoo Studio's next game~! Sunny
