I tend to find platformers and beat-em-up games to be a bit too twitchy for my taste. However, with the right gameplay style or setting it could still be fun to play. While I know little about FictionSphere, it does have the makings of something unique. For starters, it’s essentially two games in one. I’ll get to that in a moment. Anyway, I love the idea of having two playable characters with their own story.
That said, what exactly is FictionSphere about? Apparently it’s the tale about a world that’s been hit by a virulent plague turning ordinary people into monsters. And it’s up to our two heroes to fight them back for the good of humanity. Or something like that. A bit cliche, but for an action game it doesn’t really matter.
So, what was this about two game in one? Well, each playable character has their own play style. Ratio prefers a more traditional platformer action. Paradox likes to beat people up and stuff. Frankly, I’d probably end up playing the latter because I suck at platformers. That, and she’s pretty hot. Anyway, FictionSphere may not be my usual cup of Earl Grey, but I love the concept behind it.
All in all, FictionSphere looks to be a good game in the making. The artwork alone was enough to make me look at it after all. Also, being able to choose your path is a plus. It also adds to the replayability value to get both stories. With stretch goals, you can even play co-op.
