Title: Storyline Help, Please
Post by: Jazzy on July 01, 2012, 12:38:04 AM
Hi, I started playing GR a bit ago, and I got so confused as to what was going on that I haven't played it since, but would like to try, so thought I'd ask for help/clarification. My confusion is in the storyline.

I've played many point&click/adventure games, but this is one of my first sci-fi, I believe. I'm only as far as where Azriel is in a hallway where some men are near a door where he needs to find someone. I am now able to switch between scenes/areas.

My confusion is that at first someone is having their memory erased and then the scene shifts and I control Azriel in a town in the rain, and I'm doing ok with that when suddenly the scene shifts again to a character on the floor being spoken to over a speaker, being taught to shoot a gun, then being mugged for meal tickets. After a room full of look-a-likes eating food, and finding a bed to sleep in, the scene again shifts, confusing me even more. I'm in a shoot-out controlling two characters.

I'm getting no idea of the order of story progression, or any order at all, what happened when, if Azriel is the guy who got mugged for meal tickets and is having memory flashes, or what. I'm totally confused by the story, so that in itself is making my gameplay difficult to continue. I'm also confused about why someone supposed to be put out into society would need to learn gun skills, lol.

If someone could help me out, maybe I'd restart so that things would have some sort of "flow" for me. Thank you for your time.

Yeah I have to agree with you, I just started playing this game after Resonance. Although the art is excellent the plot flow is incoherent, and the game play is just awkward. I'm also in the same place as you with the shoot out segments, but I don't think I'm going to keep playing.

I had an extra key that I gave to my hubby and he agrees, too. I don't think he got as far as I did, and I haven't seen him play since.

It might just be a game I don't continue or finish.

It's probably just a problem with the storytelling method. These two stories, Azriel's and the amnesiac, are separate... for now. There is a link between the two, but you need to get farther before you can understand them. Since you have the choice to play either scene at the moment, feel free to complete either to finish that scene's objective; when they are both complete, the story will move on.

I really don't want to spoil the story, so just trust that there is a link between the two stories. It will make sense before the game is over. Also, unless the arcade-style gameplay is off-putting, try to keep going. There is a story here that is worth following to the end.

Thanks so very much! You get a rep point. ;D I'd started a new game, so I'll either go from there or my old save. I read your post to my hubby, too.

Thanks again!
