Developed with discretion by Mad Mind Studios on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Agony download is a brand new survival-horror from the sick brain of Polish developers. Financed via Kickstarter, the game allows its generous donors to have access to a short demo that we have been able to go through to experience the trauma of a soul traveling from body to body through the depths of hell. An enticing pitch, reinforced by a few trailers where one could discover a committed artistic direction with levels consisting of organs and bloody members. Is Agony looking like a future reference to the horror game? Our impressions.
Welcome to Agony, an FPS in which you embody a tormented soul devoid of memory that begins its journey in the depths of hell. Sexy is not it? And again, you have not seen anything. From the first moment, we discover that our soul is endowed with super powers. Attention, I’m talking about powers with great potential, nothing to do with the superheroes of Marvel. Your little soul can indeed borrow different bodies that are on your way, whether they are demons or simple damned. We begin with these latter, since their weakness makes them bodies much easier to incarnate than the demons. To take possession, nothing is simpler, we direct our ectoplasm way FPS above our target, we select it by clicking, then we spread the brain with Q and D before slipping with Z. Therefore, l the objective assigned to us is to go to the bottom of a well where a big demon is attached, in order to hack the brain. First impression, the places are very hospitable, in the APHP sense of the term. Everything is torn limbs and bloody organs, from floor to ceiling. The walls are lined with muscular fibers, spleens and other livers, while the door frames are made of molars (yes, the teeth at the bottom).
Level gameplay, simplicity is wise, mainly because we could not see a real combat system. The essence is in Lactel, and in the image of milk, you will have to be liquid, marry the shape of the walls and make you tiny if you want to survive. A key to bend down (and thus switch to “Stealth” mode), another to stop breathing and your faith to pray that the demon of the corner does not decide to zigouiller you. The first tool on which we fall is a torch – probably a tibia – whose end is inflamed and which will serve us to illuminate, but also to ignite some dead bushes and thus release new passages. Another interest of the torch, its glow that attracts the enemies. Very boring when you have a torch in your hand, but very practical when you throw it away, since you will be able to make diversion. All the art consists in bringing the demon to a place where one can hide, then launch the torch in the distance and sneak behind the beast. We will also find ourselves at certain moments in front of small enigmas to be solved in order to progress. In our case, it was a symbol to be drawn on a door to unlock it; Now, one had to choose the right one from several possible ones. Difficult for the moment to judge the technical aspect of the title insofar as it is only a very early demo of the game. The game is nevertheless visually impressive enough with a nice use of the Unreal Engine 4. Via quality textures, all the crazy side of the game is transcribed with a certain fidelity that gives us the impression of strolling through the corridors of Hell. Otherwise, we admit that we met a lot of bugs, even on less than half an hour of play.
