Default Hindsight 20/20 - Released

October 11th, 2021, 19:20
Pladio spotted that Hindsight 20/20 had been released last month, and went under our radar!

A Personal Creation

We are a small indie team. That gives us a unique opportunity to make games that are very personal. Hindsight 20/20 started with a lofty goal - to better understand ourselves through a video game. Questions soon followed. Could we mix this introspection with our love of combat games? Would similarly-minded people find this compelling? How can your choices in combat and story be intertwined to make every decision, moment to moment, matter? With great humility, we think the game we're releasing today is an answer to all those questions… and more. We hope you think so too and have fun along the way!

Jehan

Our game is centered around a one-armed warrior named Jehan. During your journey you'll discover his potent powers in combat and learn about his personal struggles through Hindsight 20/20's story.

We've spent the last few updates covering the combat in Hindsight 20/20, but the only way to truly understand Jehan's powers is to experience them. The combat system has been crafted to make this exploration both fun and challenging.

Jehan is like most of us. His mind lingers on his decisions. Throughout your playthroughs you'll get a glimpse into these thoughts while reading Jehan's journal. His writings will help you understand more about the world, the people in it, and Jehan himself. It's an atypical approach to immersion, but we think these quiet, introspective moments will make your choices in Hindsight 20/20 more meaningful.

Thanks @Pladio!

Very divided reviews, apparently.

Hindsight 20/20 - Launch Day Reviews

Our small indie team has been blown away by all the incredible reviews we've received! We've seen both small, passionate streamers and large press sites share their excitement for our combat and choice based systems. We are so thankful that all our hard work is paying off and having an impact on those that play our game! Here are some of our favorite reviews with quotes that have made us extremely happy:

Xbox Hub - 4.5/5: "A profoundly engaging video game experience, both in its message on morality and how players choose to play."

Hey Poor Player - 4.5/5: "Hindsight 20/20: Wrath of The Raakshasa is fantastic, with fun mechanics and a surprisingly great narrative that'll leave you questioning what you believe in."

But Why Tho - 7.5/10: "A Different Take On Choice"

Gamer Escape - 8/10: €œA unique experience that's absolutely worth a playthrough (or three)"

Movies Game and Tech - 7/10: "I loved how the world evolved based on your decisions, and how easy it was to take a different path during alternative playthroughs."
Screenrant - 2/5: "Hindsight 20/20 is based around moral choices and their consequences, but fails to make any of them feel appropriate, logical, or satisfying."

PC Invasion - 5.5/10: "Regardless of its visual drawbacks, this isn’t a bad title as such. It’s not a pain to play and I did get the occasional bit of entertainment here and there. But between the subpar story, repetitive gameplay, uninspired level design, and poor visuals, there’s simply not a lot going on here to make it worth your time."
