Top Critic Average
There are plenty of games out there that you can beat, speed-run, and master. There are very few you can talk to. Don’t sleep on the opportunity.
If you’re looking for something to break through the mould, look no further than Event , an innovative indie title with a lot of charm.
Event is an incredibly interesting game. Set on a small but incredibly detailed space ship and featuring an incredibly unique character, in the AI Kaizen. It will test your brains and your empathy, as well as your patience. Will you argue with Kaizen? Will you be friendly? There's so much to do, puzzles to solve and the space to explore.
There is something fundamentally creepy about Event, which is an adventure game with a first person perspective. It is very narrative-driven and also quite short, which may have some people scratching their heads at what the fuss is all about. The thing is, it offers you a connection to a character and the way you own the relationship that is built is both unique and deserves the time to properly explore it.
Event is an interesting game that implements text-based interactions in a beautiful and modern environment with fantastic visuals.
A tense and atmospheric, albeit brief battle of wits with an AI system will provide you with a solid evening of interactive story entertainment.
Event has the length and teething pains of a tech demo, but tells a story to beautifully to overlook without good reason.
Overall I was very happy with the experience (well that’s a relative term as their are some dark elements to the story). It’s impressive to see what Indie teams can achieve and the best part is we get games that just wouldn’t be made if the field was only open to the big production houses that have to “play it safe”.
Event succeeds because of that last line there: my relationship with Kaizen. The entire experience hinges on your ability to form a relationship with this character at the heart of the story, an AI of all things. The best books, movies and video games try to make you feel something, and to that end Event is an interesting experiment and a worthwhile experience that stands out as very unique game despite its humble roots.
It’s difficult to speak more without delving into the story or spoiling. Event  is a unique experience and worthy anyone’s time. Especially for those interested into the sci-fi genre and has a fascination of artificial intelligence.
