Tuesday Night Indie Spotight #75: Demetrios - The Big Cynical Adventure | PS4 Gameplay
Tuesday night is indie night! This week, I (@piccolo930) fired up developer Cowcat's point-and-click adventure game that's full of toilet humor, Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure.
Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure is a classic point-and-click adventure game through and through. If you enjoy this genre, I imagine you'll be pleased with what you find here. It's tough to get a full read on the title after only an hour's worth of play, but there are some encouraging positives with the game early on. The game's graphic novel visual style translates well to the big screen, and the classic "scour the screen in search of items to interact with" style of point-and-click adventure game is alive and well here. We don't have a full read on the story yet, but it's hinting at something bigger than the mundane life protagonist Bjorn leads on a daily basis. The writing is solid for the most part, although the lack of voice acting with the characters is a disappointment in a game so heavily focused on dialogue. The game's toilet humor is sure to be a point of contention amongst gamers, with some getting a kick out of it and some finding it immature. The game's humor hasn't produced anything gut-busting for me early on. There are a few chuckles to be had here and there, but much of the toilet humor is a tad on the juvenile side for my tastes. I also really like searching for the hidden cookies littered across each screen, giving gamers an extra bonus objective to focus on in each area. Overall, I'd like to play some more and see where the story goes from here. The game shows a lot of promise early on. I've collected a bunch of items, and I've got to start piecing together how they can help me progress from Point A to Point B. With only 4% of the game done so far, this is a huge adventure title with tons of point-and-click gameplay still to come.
