Game Information

Available on:PCMar 15, 2017

Developer: Wisefool Studio

Genre: Adventure

Dawnfall is a lost wanderer who travels in a fragmented universe where time and space are twisted. There is a mysterious voice that guides him in a journey that will bring him to fabulous places, meeting challenges that he never thought he could face and that will allow him to find the way back home.

Dawnfall’s life has been messed up by a book. He doesn’t know why but somewhere in that book he will find answers to all his questions.

Waking the Glares is a great journey, an exploration-based game that will require the player to pay attention to the environment from a visual and acoustic point of view.

With this release the player will get the first two chapters of Waking the Glares. The complete adventure is intended to be made of seven different chapters and their release will depend on the first release success.

But please note that every single chapter tells a story on its own, just, there’s a thread passing through all the chapters. In game terms, this means that every single chapter is set in a different location with a slightly different gameplay.

While it didn't hook me completely, with some refinement and a little more time this could be a really interesting title.

Waking the Glares is a game with a highly interesting lore premise brought down by an incredibly murky pacing and a repetitive objective flow that ultimately overshadows everything good the game has to offer.

Waking the Glares: Chapters I and II is a perfect example of how some use the term "indie" to excuse everything. It looks amateurish, it doesn't work as well as it should, its "gameplay" is heavily unpolished, and its story is "symbolic and means stuff," despite it leaving you with a big, irritating question mark above your head, but it's okay, because it's "indie." The truth? It's a bad, bad, bad video game.

For the story's sake, it can be played, but beware of some annoying bugs and a stressful UI. We certainly hope that these problems will be fixed in the upcoming chapters.
