E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy - Indie October
So, today I played E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy from Streum On Studio and it was interesting, different, and I had a lot of fun playing it. EYE is kind of a mixture of a lot of different things, at least what I have gathered in about an hour of playtime. You play a cybermancer who has lost his memory after a hard fought battle, and you're trying to figure out what happened. At least, that's what it seems like, as I didn't really get too engaged by the story. The game seems like it's really deep though as it's a shooter/action game with some RPG elements. Honestly, I just need to play more of the game, but the combat is a lot of fun. You start off, literally, with just a katana. That's pretty awesome, and soon after you get through the first little bit of the game you come across your armory which has a bevy of options. You can do what I did and decide to pull out the dual-wieldable katanas, because let's face it that is pretty badass. You can also use whatever you want whether it be katanas, pistols, shotguns, smgs, assault rifles, sniper rifles, and probably more that I even forgot. If nothing else this game gives you options for killing people. I have to say that the killing people part is really fun and satisfying. You can even wield a katana and a pistol at the same time, which is great for just shooting a guy a couple times and then cutting into him. That's not even the tip of the iceberg for the game though as it has psionic powers. Unfortunately, I didn't really get to see any of the psionic stuff as I didn't play far enough, but it looks like there are a lot of different things you can do. Taking it down to brass tax though this game is a fun distraction, and it's only $10 on Steam. I'm definitely interested in exploring the different aspects of the game including the multiplayer. It seems like there is a lot to this game that needs more fully explored, but after one hour of playing it I absolutely want to. Go check it out!
