I found this on Steam and purchased it during a sale for $10. When purchased its looks like you get 2 games, one is labeled as the Prolog. I started with the Prolog. In the prolog it is described as a vacation on an island gone wrong. You start out in a sewer system, looking for a away out and off the island, picking up items, crafting basic stuff, and being tutored with mechanics. The game looks pretty, built in the Unreal Engine.
After a couple hours of play, I disliked the checkpoint save system, as I am a casual player. You can get though some difficult situations, then die before a checkpoint, and… you have to do it all over again. Because this is early access, I have suggested an easier save as you go system for casual players, in the game’s discussion forum at Steam.
It looks like this is escape and evade game, with a lot of Tomb Raider climbing. I don’t know how much armor if any you acquire. The weapons so far are a wrench, stick, craft a knife, a baton and a crossbow I took off a guard. I checked out the game’s wiki page and don’t see other weapons listed, so the bottom line you are not a powerful character, or have the ability to become one as far as I can tell. It seems to be best to run away often. I have taken guards down with minimal health loss, but frequently, one fight with a guard or crazy person can result in a 25-75% loss of health, and keep in mind health kits are few and far between. There are drugs that can be crafted to help with healing.
The weapons don’t show stats, so you either guess what is most powerful (wrench, more powerful than a knife) or find the game’s Wiki page.
Anyway, I’ll stick with it for a bit. In a sequence, I killed some dogs, killed a guard, got the crap beat out of me trying to administer a syringe so I could acquire a crossbow, no stealth kills as far as I can tell, then soon after died, and was offered the chance to restart at the last checkpoint before all this happened.
I spoke with developer at Steam, and the Main Game (not the Prolog) does have difficulty settings which allows saves at any time, however there are no stealth kill mechanics. I’ll switch to the main game, continue playing, and report back.
