I Love This Game!!!
That being said, the dark mechanics need an overhaul. If you go deep enough even when you create a shaft for light to filter in with generous openings in the walls, torches, glowsticks, and even running powered lights all one gets is black.
The dark/light mechanic seems very broken. But otherwise a fun game. Just don't travel to deep underground without saving and then reloading. All one can see is their character, and lava. The lights simply dont put out enough light. And somewhere on the way down there's a line where the characters light mechanics just do not work.
If a player can't see their enviornment at all beyond just the glowing of a torch and the fact that one has been placed at a distance. Not fun beyond that strange line where the light mechanics become broken.
I know the games called Darkout....but if a Sci Fi civilization can build ships that span the stars, surely, they could figure out how to make high gain Night vision or light amplification devices..... Just sayin'. :)
This game has some awesome potential for gamers whom are fans of adventure, crafting, base building, and exploration. And once (or if) the light/ dark mechanics are re balanced and reworked to make the game more playable at depths far below the surface. This game won't be just a gem of gaming curiosity, it will be a must have for 2D action adventure affectionatos.
All the above being said, Darkout is worth a $5 or less price tag when its on sale.
