Hey guys, Dan here and welcome to my new series Dan’s Demos. In this series I am going to play some Demos or beginnings of games to give you a taste of what they have to offer.
Today’s game is Past Cure:
Past Cure is a dark psychological thriller that blurs the lines between dreams and reality. An intense, cinematic, story-driven experience that challenges the player to use mind-bending mental abilities to survive. After years of torture, former elite soldier Ian lives in a safe house with his brother, struggling with memory loss and the effects of the experiments he was forced to endure. In an attempt to tap into the hidden power of the mind, his captors left him scarred with unrelenting nightmares, visions and unstable powers such as time manipulation and telekinesis. Driven by his desperate need for the truth and a thirst for revenge; Ian, aided by his brother, sets out on a thrilling hunt for the masterminds of this conspiracy, hoping to uncover exactly what was done to him and why? As Ian plunges into a criminal underworld in pursuit of his only lead, he is forced to use his powers more and more to survive. But with each use, his mind becomes ever more detached from reality, revealing the presence of an even darker force at play.
Now I hate horror games and I normally avoid them, but in this case pure curiosity took me by the hand. The fact that the game said that you could use cool powers and that the game is “an intense, cinematic, story-driven experience that challenges the player”, how could I resist that?
So, check out the new series and let me know what you think and maybe even suggest a game for me to demo.
