A text-based adventure for the new age. Based on a revolutionary concept for non-linear storytelling by upcoming game designer Peter Moorhead. Featuring the enchanting pixel art of Brian Callahan, and a beautiful dynamic soundtrack by Nick Borrego.
While it's hard to judge from such an early beta, Incursion immediately shows great potential, and great execution. The mix between old and new is everywhere: graphics, music, narrative.
It may seem odd at first, when you see the neatly cut trees or perfectly round celestial bodies, but it gives a very unique look to the game - not that much of a rarity these days with games using triangles, squares, voxels, and so on with great results, but still very nice; or when the - quite classic at first - story starts to go into more uncommon directions, with a narrator proudly telling you he doesn't exist, for example.
Incursion, as of this first release, doesn't show much. But what it shows is competency, great promise, a premise that's intriguing enough to have you check for updates on a very regular basis, and a secret that's as elusive as the famed dopefish. Which is all good, if you ask me. :)
Interesting demo with fun dialogues and a nice twist to the story aswell, can't wait for the full release. It does a good job at executing the interactive storyline too.
Although this beta doesn't really reveal anything severe, Incursion shows great potential due to it's classical feel and professional execution.
