Visual novels can be a great medium to really get a unique story out there. For better or worse, Super Army of Tentacles 3 is an experience unlike any other. It does its own thing and enjoys it, often poking fun of its own pretension. If you like Lovecraft and consider yourself well-versed in internet culture, you’ll likely enjoy this a great deal. Otherwise, you may very well struggle to find much to like.
Cibele is an interesting title, that can be picked up for £5,99, I for one think that is a fair price for what is on offer, and the high standard of production values that have gone into this game. Some of you may get a nostalgia hit with the story, whilst others may actually enjoy the gameplay of the game in Cibele, but I can certainly say it is worth the full marked up price for an hour’s enjoyment.
Overall, 1979 is a really good adventure game, but the only thing that lets it down is the lack of content that gives this game any longevity. If the story could be expanded or lead onto maybe an Episode 2, then it would be well worth the £8.99 but purely because it is so short, I can only recommend 1979 Revolution: Black Friday when it is on sale.
The developers (read: parents) deserve you spend two hours of your life to follow this experience yourself. It will put your life into perspective and really make you appreciate what you have. All those small niggling problems that seem like a huge issue right now, are nothing compared to what could truly happen.
