Resonance Playtest: Pays Respect To Its Point-and-Click Roots

 

Resonance is a love letter to old school adventure games. It's well written, and has puzzles that will definitely make you think.

1. You usually have as much time as you want to explore a situation and come to a solution, even if the characters seem like they’re in a hurry, so don’t feel like you have to rush.

The story of Resonance's development would make for a good inspirational movie. It all started started with adventure game enthusiast Vince

Old-school meets new-school in this clever but flawed point-and-click throwback.

While Resonance's retro, low-res pixel art aesthetic and occasionally dense puzzle work hearkens back to the older days of the point-and-click adventure, a smattering of modern mechanics weave enough new ideas throughout the gameplay to balance out its...

Inconsistent writing and shallow characterizations keep this adventure game from fully resonating.

Some clever puzzles ; Innovative "memory" system ; Good music

Poorly conceived and written ; Puzzles are often contrived or confusing

In one scene, for example, the main characters come upon a note that throws suspicion on one of them, specifically naming him as someone not to trust. This causes the other three to knock him out and tie him up. Later the characters' mistrust is shown...

An awkward mathematician, an introverted doctor, a cynical cop, and a ballsy indie journalist. Prior to the Aventine City Blackout, Ed, Anna, Bennet, and Ray couldn't care less about anything beyond their insular lives - whether it'd be epic science...

Garbed in retro aesthetics, an upbeat soundtrack, engaging puzzles, and a story that whispered promises of a long and grandiose experience, Resonance was definitely armed to the teeth. As a puzzle packed title, it does well enough to keep players...

Resonance is a puzzle/adventure game that revolves around a murder mystery, dangerous technology, and the memories and motivations of its four characters. When a scientist is murdered in his lab after making paranoid ramblings, it's up to you to figure...

But even these flaws are fairly minor. As far as I’m concerned, Resonance is the reason indie games exist. You don’t need a $10 million budget, a staff of a hundred and a selling price of $69.99 to have a good game. Sometimes a great experience can be...

An absolute must play for any classic adventure nut.

Tight storyline that ties up everything by the end; excellent voice acting; novel interface that actually improves on a very old standard

Old school graphics may not be for everyone; could use a little more humor to leaven all the heavy drama; pixel hunting puzzles

Wadjet Eye Games has quickly become one of my favorite game publishers in the world. Their eye to pick out what can be an interesting and compelling adventure game to play is just getting more and more refined, and it seems like they found a great...

I have a voracious appetite for good mysteries, even more so for good adventure games. Wadjet Eye Games has been keeping me plump on wonderful offerings like the Blackwell series and Gemini Rue, and now Resonance. After five years of development, I was...

You really can't go wrong by spending some time with Resonance. While at first glance it may hark back to games like Beneath a Steel Sky, it's a fresh, modern mystery. It's set the bar rather high for other adventure game developers, and not just...

Wadjet Eye Games came to my attention last year with the astonishing Blackwell Deception, a basic-looking but very modern adventure involving a girl who can see the dead and the ghost of a ‘30s private detective. With likeable, interesting characters,...

Oh, the twist certainly. Aaaaand I can’t tell you what it is, sigh.

Resonance is the latest point-and-click adventure from Wadjet Eye Games. Like Gemini Rue before it, Resonance was built using the Adventure Game Studio, and so it looks and plays like one of Sierra Online's Quest adventures from the early days of PC...

One of the highlights of Resonance is the writing. There is a lot of humor in the game (such as when you discover that two co-workers are unknowingly emailing each other), but Resonance also includes some darker topics and raises some philosophical...
