Karma Incarnation 1, a game that caught me by surprise, I did not even have knowledge of it and when I played it I realized that this game should be better known. The game is unique, completely unique, from its art style, to its history, its mechanics, everything about it is striking in a certain way.
The game tells the story of the love of two souls and as struggles to make that love come true, as one of these has been kidnapped by evil spirits and our hero decides to reincarnate in a dragon to end the evil that Has decended a psychedelic planet with strange creatures. Something goes wrong and instead of being born as a dragon, our hero takes possession of a worm. During his stay in the body of the worms our hero discovers the laws of Karma and how his behavior can affect the world around him.
It is a Point-n-Click, bone is a story of riddles that are solved using the mouse and your ingenuity. You must take our hero to complete his mission in one way or another. The psychedelic world that shows itself to you, has its rules and will depend on you to follow them or not, the riddles can be quite simple if you take your time, others can become annoying, since no one will hold your hand, if not You let your imagination fly you can not advance to safe passage.
It is a game with a psychedelic 2D art, both the world and the characters has a somewhat strange but striking design. The psychedelic style gives a unique aspect to the characters who live in this place and on top of this the puzzles they provide only accentuates that colorful and magical aspect of the game.
The sounds at first confuse you, you will say “This does not sound good” but hold on, follow the game and you will understand why every creature has such a strange sound, you do not need to go far to understand this point and soundtrack because it does justice to Psychedelic style that has the game, with what I would describe as Rasta or Reggae music.
The characters in their entirety mute, show you what they are, how they are and what they are through images or memories that will help you complete puzzles or just give you an idea of where you are. None very deep and some are not different from the others but it is not necessarily bad since they do not need to stand out to tell the story or make this breakthrough, they are often just decorations to make the environment feel “alive and different.”
It is a great game that you will have to get accustomed to get through the different adversities that surround you and be able to fulfill the mission that you proposed when descending to the planet where you are. You will need ingenuity if you wish to solve the riddles that are sent to your path to prevent your advance and in turn enjoy a unique and different world.
