Event is a student project with far too little to offer for its price, and even what it does offer fails to live up to its promises.
It's not that it's a bad game, per se; it's very atmospheric, has a generally polished look, and features a couple of genuinely tense moments. It's that this is a completely linear "narrative exploration" game that only lasts 4 hours and only provides about 2 minutes of actual story in that time, most of which is delivered in an expository dump at the very end. It's that this game is only noteworthy for a "type anything to the interactive AI" gimmick that, in reality, seems to consist mostly of pre-determined statements that are made at certain points during gameplay regardless of what you type, and when it does try to actually respond to you it feels like a dialog tree, except that the options are hidden from you and you have to guess keywords until something triggers a useful response. And most of all, it's that the end credits reveal this is a student project
, yet it's currently being sold for the same price as professionally developed titles with ten times more content that is also ten times better.
Enough of what was here was enjoyable that I wish I could recommend it, but this is really a student project that should be pay-if-you-want on itch.io
, not sold alongside professionally produced games on the major online game stores. All that said, while I can't recommend it at full price, it might be worth adding to your Steam wish list. Sooner or later, it should go on sale for 90% off. That would be a fair price for what you get.
