AGONY

Recommended Posts

Agony. A survival / Horror / Stealth game set in a ....bizarre world. Its currently under development, release date right now is 2nd Q 2017 and only 9 people work on it (Madmind studio), apparently some of the developers were involved in the The Witcher games. 
 
Anyway, enough talk, here is a game play video, the game is still in a very unfinished, glitchy larva state.  
(Be advised - this is a horror game, it features horror-ish stuff, naturally)

The game apparently still needs a lot of work but I really like what I have seen so far. There seems to be stealth mechanics like light/shadows (the first demon in the video appears to have no eyes but good hearing), heavy focus on sounds as the protagonist can hold his breath and there are dangerous, living environments.

I have not seen nearly enough gameplay to really say that I'm super excited about it, but I love the general direction the game is taking. I love the setting, I like how uncensored and gritty everything is.

I have always been a fan of survival horror and stealth games and this seems to finally be the one that goes the  ''whole way'',. I'll definitely keep an eye on this one and I hope it will turn out really nice.

I saw this earlier. I'm interested. The bizarre world it's set in is:

 

 

Hell.

 

 

And it looks like they are doing it justice.

Rather Lovecraftian what? I have to say that I was impressed, though i'd like to know why they used my mother in law to model the Goddess statue?

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Long time no see mate. Was afraid you'd dropped something on your head while overhead pressing or something. Good to see you.

 

I saw the trailer on YT. For some reason that kind of "horror" does nothing for me. In fact the only horror game I've enjoyed is Alien Isolation, and that was more about tension than horror, per se...

Hey man how are you doing? 

I can totally understand if this horror does nothing for you, tastes in the scare genre vary wildly. Have you ever played FEAR? Did you like it?

Personally I like the horror in Agony so far........ though, if I like the horror does that mean it does not work for me?  :blink:

 

Anyway, I also really like that art style, especially the hellish  ''forest'' at the very end of the trailer. The concept of a game like this has been haunting my brain for many many years, its great to see it finally being created.

I'll keep my eye on this.  I've got a thing for damnation and hell  :dancing:

 

I want to learn as much as possible about my future destination. This is a learning game for me.  :devil:

As for the game, at that level of graphical quality it looks more like a proof of concept than anything else. To maintain that quality all around it would either have to be a very short game or a very expensive large scale project.


И погибе Српски кнез Лазаре,
И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

Not sure, I can think of a few visually impressive games that did not sacrifice gameplay for looks with pretty normal development times from relatively conservatively-sized studios. But IMO Agonoy is probably going to be that kind of game that does not benefit from length anyway, I would prefer it to be a short but intense ride. A lot of games nowadays feel so stretched because they fail to show new interesting stuff not even halfway in.

I say, go absolutely nuts on animation, graphics, intensity and horror and make just long enough that it does not wear out before the end.

I'd be happy with ~ 8 non-rushed hours, 8 hours I'll remember fondly for a long time. 

 

Anyway, I watched a couple more gameplay trailers, we will be able to possess demons or even turn into ones -I think- by killing lost souls / killing and eating people.  :blink:

As demons speed, power and strength is vastly enhanced and I saw some magical abilities as well. Sounds like a cool feature, I already thought that just walking around as a naked human in such a hostile environment all the time would be veeery frustrating.

One of my favorite cards ever. I just wish they were a tiny little more powerful so they would find a spot in one of my competitive decks.  :)

Really? I found it rather tame considering the setting.

I find it as artistic presentation but I can't play it by myself due to gore and ooze. It feels unpleasant.

I find the setting unique, I wonder how exactly will they handle it. It's almost a simulation of Hell. More than anything else, I disagree with the comment that says that the game looks lovecraftian, it looks full on demonic as it should.

 

The problem is that there's so much horror games coming ou this year and next that it might get buried and go by un-noticed. We shall see. I'm definitely interested, though it isn't high on my priority list.


Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

I'm not big on most horror. Especially jump scare or torture porn.

 

But for whatever reason, I'm fascinated with hellfire and depictions of hell. Maybe I'm just into "metal" depictions. You know the type, Diablo, Doom, God of War, Dante's Inferno. Maybe because it's about man's struggle against the demonic rather than man committing the horrors. But just fighting against this unbearable bleak and almost over the top depiction of hell is always really gripping to me. So this game certainly as my interest piqued, and instead of being all bad ass now it's a more vulnerable struggle. Which is also appealing in it's own way.

The Dantes Inferno (the book not the game.. i dont know the game) and Diablo and the hell from this one Robin Williams movie are the best depictions to me. The game should build up on that.

The Evil Within 2 looks better and better. If Survival Horror fan, check it out ^_^
