As a giant silly child who’s compelled to play horror video games I do know will freak my nut out, I’m grateful to see Frictional Video games add a less-spooky mode to a different of their video games. In the present day they blessed Amnesia: Rebirth with an ‘Journey Mode’, an non-obligatory problem degree which stops monsters murdering you whereas throwing in some additional puzzles for folk who simply wanna discover someplace unusual and terrible. That is good, that. The sport has a giant low cost to celebration the launch too.
Frictional clarify that Journey Mode “removes all life-threatening encounters with monsters, in addition to the harrowing sound and visible results that will have an effect on Tasi’s concern ranges.” Ranges are brighter too.
I used to be very grateful for Soma’s related Protected Mode, and this goes additional to push the sport in a barely totally different course to fill the hole left by monstermurder. They’ve put in some additional puzzles for Journey Mode, which is a intelligent concept.
“The sport nonetheless has its very critical theme and typically unnerving atmosphere, however the brand new mode feels much more like an Indiana Jones kind of journey in locations the place it could in any other case be extra of a horror expertise,” based on inventive lead Fredrik Olsson.
Journey Mode needs to be out there in a patch on PC proper now. It’s going to hit PlayStation “within the subsequent few weeks”. To mark the launch of Journey Mode, Frictional are providing a 40% low cost on the sport on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Video games Retailer.
Alice Bee fairly favored the sport, however mentioned in our Amnesia: Rebirth assessment that “although Rebirth takes a run at a bunch of cool and alarming ideas, it feels prefer it’s juggling too many to do any one among them full justice.”
