These Story-driven Games Can Be Played Offline
• Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons | @异议あり
● The first videogame of Josef Fares, the director of It Takes Two.
● An exquisitely told story set and epic fairy tale journey.
When It Takes Two got The Game Award for Game of the Year of 2021, I'm not surprised at all. I always knew Josef Fares was a talented game designer and film director. In Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, he is already exhibiting an unusual talent for making an excellent co-op experience.
The gameplay of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is quite unique, you can experience co-op play in single-player mode. Control the elder brother with the left hand and the little brother with the right hand. But my favorite part is not the gameplay but the story of the game. It's the story of the brotherhood, it’s sad and touching.
• A Life in Music | @Jenn
A Life in Music somehow reminds me of La La Land. The two passionate music lovers fall for each other. Then, there come the conflicts, and they fall apart. It’s a story about dreamers, music, and life.
The things I love about this game:
The soundtrack. If you love classic music or Maestro Giuseppe Verdi, then this is the game for you. If you love rock bands, you will also find some easter eggs in the game.
The narrative. Although I don’t know much about game design, I do think this game did a great job in the storytelling with its interactive gameplay. Especially the rhythm game, which serves as an amazing interlude between chapters.
A Life in Music is completely free, and there aren’t any annoying pop-up ads. You can even play it without the internet.160434
• The Walking Dead: Season One | @WittyChico
The Walking Dead is a story-driven adventure game.
The game is more of an interactive story and it drew me in from the first minute. I talked to other people and was often required to make choices within a time limit.
Incredible and well-written story
Beautiful comic art style
A lot of tough choices
Some choices don’t affect the story much
Checkpoints are scarce
Final score: 9/1010489
• BestLuck | @wt.series
"BestLuck" is a game with a strange atmosphere. A boy who goes on an adventure into the forest of dreams after an unknown girl who comes to his dreams every night must solve a riddle by opening and closing an endless door. Who is the girl and where is this place? As you open and close the door and solve the puzzle, your curiosity grows.🕰
To avoid spoilers, the story is a hidden story that follows a girl who comes to her dreams every night and goes on an adventure in her dreams. (It's not a horror game, but the background of the game is similar to that of a horror game.)
In terms of genre, it is a puzzle adventure. When the user enters the world for the first time, there are a few trees and some stones, and an unknown girl without a word points in a certain direction. The user goes in the direction the girl is pointing and performs a specific action necessary to progress the game.
If you go in the direction the girl is leading, a door will appear constantly. Sometimes you have to open doors to solve puzzles, and sometimes you get hints by looking at the world beyond the door. The bond you create with a strange girl in an unfamiliar place is the theme and almost everything of the game.
1. "Best Truck"does not say anything 🙊
The game has no clues or hints. Enough users can get angry at the unfriendly tutorial while playing the game.
I think that users who just started the game will wander around the room unconditionally for about 5 minutes. Of course, the story also cannot get hints from the game.
But as soon as you pass through the episodes, you will be immersed in boundless emotions.
2.Another avenue for imagination to create 🤔
One of the things that struck me a lot while playing BestLuck was that it sparked a lot of curiosity about the game. It is also the realization you feel when you solve it.
It's like an empty space game. But the biggest attraction of the game is that it fills this empty space with the user's imagination and makes you feel the joy of witnessing this story being beautifully filled.
Of course, the beautiful BGM of the game also shows good harmony with the story.
The game can be played offline, and it is a game with a short but powerful and beautiful story.
This game has already received a lot of praise as it has already been awarded in the App Store and various indie game festivals. If you are looking for a high-quality story game, I would recommend this game.143314
• Old Man's Journey Demo | @#NumbX
Honestly, I felt more like I was reading an album of stories when I played this game for the first time.
So, everybody gets old at some point, but I can't help being envious of this old man. He lived among beautiful and picturesque fields in the countryside. Enjoy embarking on his journey, seeing small peaceful villages, crossing waterfalls, and paddling on a sunset-lit lake. The young ones are in full bloom in his memory, and they're bursting with youthful vigor. Everything about this game is fascinating and desirable.
I can't stop imagining the pleasant scenes within the atmosphere, though it's a puzzle game. I really hope one day I'll be able to hike and make my own memories when I'm old.
I would like to recommend this game to everyone, and my family. Playing a game like this is undoubtedly a spiritual experience that we all need in a fast-paced life.164457
