Rainswept Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET I’d probably make a horrible detective. It’s not that I have any issues with observation or deduction, but rather I’m empathetic and I tend to trust people immediately. I also don’t smoke or drink coffee, which I think instantly disqualifies me. I still fantasize though, and what better way to do so than through the medium of video games? This way I can smoke and drink as much coffee as I want while also digging through the mucky cesspool where not even the bravest sanitation workers are willing to dwell. Rainswept is one such murder mystery, except rather than uncovering the dirt that people keep hidden, the focus is more on the dirt that builds up inside of us. Rainswept starts off with a warning that it will show you exactly once and never again: “This game contains references to topics such as suicide and trauma which some players may find distressing.” About midway through the game, I was wishing I had heeded that warning because I’m certainly one of those players who found it distressing. The game opens up, after all, with a man shooting himself in the head. Stop there! We found the murderer!TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

Actually, the crime scene definitely portrays a convincing representation of a murder-suicide. The man’s girlfriend, we find, was shot at point-blank before the man suffered the aforementioned head wound. There’s no sign of forced entry or struggle. The city police send in Detective Michael Stone to investigate and he quickly discovers something is not right. Three shots were fired from the pistol, the neighbour only heard one, and the window was left open despite the rain that constantly falls on the town. To complicate matters, the local police have basically already made up their mind on the matter, and the town’s population all abuzz with murmurs of the couple’s domestic problems. The depression hits you from two vectors. The first is, of course, learning of the couple’s problems leading up to their tragic end. What starts out like a fairytale romance gradually sours until the murder-suicide angle really sounds convincing. The couple’s tribulations are presented in a disturbingly believable manner, as vicious arguments swirl and then dissipate into apologies and promises that ring empty.

Pine trees, coffee and rain. Lots of rain.

Meanwhile, Detective Stone is dealing with some heavy baggage himself. Previous to his assignment, his wife died in an incident he has shouldered the blame for. He’s left struggling to find the will to continue living. Initially, the ghostly appearances of his wife and his abstract dreams seem almost trite, but as the case begins to slip through Michael’s fingers and his rationalization amps up, it starts to hit home. Stepping away from the brink for a moment, Rainswept is a light adventure game. There isn’t much in the way of puzzles or even any sort of player agency beyond dialogue choices. In that sense, it’s a bit closer to a walking simulator or visual novel, so don’t go in expecting to take hold of the case and find the killer in a heartbeat. You’re coming along for the whole ride. The featured art style is nothing if not striking. It bears the image of low-detail, paper cutouts and the effectiveness ranges from impressive to laughably bad. One of the issues I had continually crop up is the characters’ dotted eyes. From a distance this doesn’t look bad, and sometimes when the game calls for a close-up, more detail is added to give the actors more expression.Amnesia

But there are other times when there’s a close-up and the characters are left with these tiny, expressionless dot eyes. The art was all done by, like, one guy, so all things considered, it’s not bad. It’s just not always good, either.To be honest, however, Rainswept really has some problems with the first impression , starting with the horrible thumbnail that stands out in the different shops and that does not at all convey the idea of ​​the crazy artistic direction that graces the game: that rude detective, wiry and drawn with a heavy stroke is the most distant there can be instead from the rarefied and mysterious atmospheres created by Frostwood Interactive . Other than that brute, the detective Michael Stone protagonist of Rainswept is a transfiguration in rectangles of the Dale Cooper of Twin Peaks.Detectives and adventure games go together like fish and chips. The combination of logic puzzles and a narrative focus just works well with solving mysteries. Rainswept very much takes that pairing to heart. It’s a murder mystery/detective story set in a small suburban town called Pineview. You play as Detective Michael Stone, a bit city detective brought in to solve the murder of a local couple.

An emotionally captivating story set in an immersive and atmospheric game world.

There is certainly a hint of Twin Peaks to Rainswept. The big city detective comes to a small town to solve a gruesome murder and finds things to be a little odd amongst several of the inhabitants. While it might not have the supernatural elements which were a feature of Twin Peaks it certainly has a similar tone, even if it’s not quite as camp. The gameplay all takes place on a 2D plane, meaning that you only have to move left and right at any given time. You move left and right and can click on different objects and people to interact with your surroundings. Most of the ‘puzzles’ and the story progression actually takes place through dialogue as opposed to hunting objects. Rainswept’s focus on dialogue over puzzles throws the narrative into sharp focus. It’s less about figuring it out then it is about being led on an interesting adventure by the nose. Fortunately, the narrative is very well put together and features a cast of characters who all have their own distinct personalities and development. When you get to the town you’re confronted by the local law enforcement who almost all have a pretty stony reaction to you. The local police believe the case is a simple open and shut, so don’t take kindly to your involvement.White Day: A Labyrinth Named School Switch NSP

The other officer who is assigned to you is impressed by you and is also much friendlier. Throughout the course of the game, your relationships with all three of these characters develop, especially in the cases of your assistant and the local detective. The murder mystery plot isn’t the only thing going on in Rainswept either. Every so often your character will have a fainting spell or will suffer from sleep paralysis. A lot of the time these moments are where you find the surreal aspects of the storyline. There is a lot of hinting towards some sort of past trauma which the main character suffered, and which still affects him. The trauma constantly comes up throughout the narrative but it’s only fully revealed by the ending. The emotional trauma subplot adds a lot of depth to the main character, and that’s mostly handled well. There were a few times where there were some pretty oblique references to suicide which could have been handled better, but overall these hard subject were handled in a very smart way. The subplot also fits right alongside the murder mystery in several cases, as you learn more about the relationship the two victims had with each other.

The main characters subplot isn’t the only one you can find in Rainswept either. As you travel around the town to try and solve the mystery you can interact with the locals. Several have their own encounters, which don’t affect the main story, but they’re at least interesting. They help to lend Pineview a sense of life, and transforms the people in it from cardboard cutouts to living, breathing people. The narrative is well put together, but Rainswept suffers in other areas. The gameplay is pretty damn simple, taking place on a single plane. It’s also very light on the challenge. There are approximately two actual puzzles in the game and both of them are solves in less than a minute. There are also numerous bugs throughout the game, some of which are pretty damn severe. At one point I had to stop playing for a whole day while I waited for a bug fix. The bug in question made it so none of the QTE’s worked and so you couldn’t complete the game. The bug was fixed in a pretty timely manner, but there were other less severe bugs on display as well. It’s impossible to directly close the objectives list because pressing the button to close it the page just reopens itself.

There are also numerous graphical issues here or there but they’re mostly minor. Other than the major game-breaking bug mentioned above none of the bugs were bad enough to actually make the experience any worse. The art style of Rainswept, in general, is pretty good. The graphics are all made using simple shapes and colors with no outlines or features. The art style is very simple but works well with the tone and feel of the game. The simple gameplay matches the uncomplicated art style. It also allows for some really interesting and unique-looking cutscenes. What looks like a craft paper blob from a distance looks pretty incredible up-close. Overall Rainswept is a great game. It has some issues, such as the bugs and the overly simplistic gameplay, but the well-constructed story and unique visual style save it. It’s only a short experience, running about fout hours altogether, but that suits it. Any longer and it might have felt drawn out. Keeping the pace tight and the scale small makes it a quaint, surreal detective story which is memorable enough to stick in the mind.

While Rainswept is certainly capable when it comes to the handling of its human characters, the core murder mystery is a little less well-executed. It definitely succeeds in misdirecting, dropping red herrings at every turn to mislead you, but when it finally gets down to whodunit… I’m just not sure. I may be projecting here. I wasn’t able to guess the real circumstances for the murder until it was presented directly in front of me, but maybe that’s my poor detective skills at work. My husband, on the other hand, was able to untangle the plot, and he also found the game too disturbing to watch outside of a few glimpses. I just found the end to be a little empty. I can’t really get into it further than I already have without spoiling things, but it seems to me that the case would have been a little less ambiguous if certain clues weren’t conveniently overlooked by the police. The game’s splash screen depicts protagonist Michael Stone gripping a pistol, finger on the trigger. However, if you come expecting grand shootouts and police brutality, you’ll find nothing of the sort. Instead, open wide for a heaping helping of pathos. Rainswept is a heavy game. Its sad piano music and endless poetic rainfall underscoring the human tragedy depicted. Imprisoned Queen
