Stygian really delivers on its Lovecraftian premise and mixing it with 1920’s style is a refreshing change The story and RPG elements are rich and immersive, but certain elements such as UI clutter, an abrupt ending and some bugs hold it back a little.
With all its elements combined, Untold Stories mixes nostalgia with a dramatic story and some varied gameplay styles. I unfortunately, found it a bit frustrating, but the developers seem committed to their product and the recent patch seems like it addresses some of the technical concerns I encountered. Still, I’m not sure I really have the patience for text adventures (if I ever had it all). I think this game is a gamble, but in some ways, that is what Indie Development is about.
