Stained is a side-scrolling, platforming and combat action game set in an ancient, mysterious castle featuring detailed 3D environments with a continually changing game world. Events in Stained are triggered by breaking objects placed in and around the castle, and outcomes are determined by the combination of glass pieces that litter the ground, leading to a variety of experiences. Novel ways to break objects have to be thought of at times, which will keep the player guessing what the next puzzle will be. In any fight in the game victory is usually temporary, as defeated foes may form again, or reassemble to form entirely new ones. The gameplay is fully interactive and physics based – each character’s uncanny abilities have to be kept in mind to think of innovative ways to proceed through the game!

Joystiq article about this shady developer going back on his word:


Previous Developer Quotes:

"We will also give a steam keys to everyone who will buy the game in this bundle.
So get it there and give us a thumps up!" - July 8th, 2013


"All Those who have purchased via bundle will get the keys. Let me figure out how it works and I will get back to you asap." - July 4th, 2014


I will never purchase another game from RealAxis Software and will encourage others to do the same. Telling people who purchase your game that they will receive keys and then pulling that offer off the table once you make it onto Steam is just flat out wrong and I cannot support a developer who is so unethical.

Nevermind. I just thought of checking the reviews for potential info. No duh they didn't even bother to reply to my PM. T_T I'll make sure to remember that though.

Ok, finished the game. The fact that you didn't need to flip the parallelogram is disturbing, since a few level before, you could flip the parallelogram. (The level before the prison), and if I remember correctly, you need to flip. I figured out since a long time how resolve the puzzle, but since I couldn't flip the figure, I didn't figure out how put the left low piece.

Here's my review: Good game but with too many defaults. First, the game is slow. Not because I have a bad computer, but the gameplay is slow. Secund: the wall jump: Really hating it. It have a bad control. Third: You can't solve puzzle as you please: there is one programmed walkthrough for each puzzle, but a lot of puzzle could be solved by differents methods. The puzzle idea is really good but bad used.

If you made a second game, here's how I see it: a Metroidvania, where you can collect freely the pieces of stains, each puzzle could be resolved how you want (It's possible by considering that each piece is a combination of the same triangle several times) , need to find blueprint to make your upgrades. For the upgrade that allow you to progress, you need to gain piece dropped only by bosses (example: need a round piece). A gameplay a little more dynamic (I don't ask for something with combo, special hit, etc, but as it's here, it's not good).

I really like the idea of the monsters that can recombine into something else and the fact that you need to create your objects. But, sorry to say that, your game uses badly these mechanics, it's too scripted.

I sincerely think that you have your place on the indie market and really hope that you make other games and progress further, but I can't consider Stained as a great game..



PS: Sorry for my bad English.
