Recommended Posts

I think I remember the game was supposed to have a strong focus on consequences to your actions, with branching paths in the storyline. I know that's the kind of things a lot of players get excited about, but to me, it's always the sign the game is probably too ambitious and won't end up that way (a la Fable). Well, in this case, it didn't end up at all. 😅

I have a lot of respect for Frederick Raynal, but it always has been a problem with western developers, especially from France (Beyond Good & Evil 2 being the absolute caricature of that philosophy). That's why I prefer Japanese games; they tend to stick to classic formulas but at least the games 'work' and age better.

It would have been fun to see what would have ultimately came of Agartha had it released. I always wonder what would have been

As a strange coincidence, the guy from Switzerland that shared the prototype is actually doing extra research about the game. The lore was quite intriguing, dealing with disturbing themes. 😅

Never heard of this game before, but it's a shame this got canceled. I really like the setting and aesthetics here.

same. Could have been pretty legit had it released

I recalling seeing this game years ago and thinking it was amazing looking. The Dreamcast was always a favorite system of mine, and stuff like this is why.

By the way, Laurent Comby should reveal tomorrow how to make the 3rd prototype released on Sunday playable.
