Word gets around - Resonance Reviews & Media Coverage
« on: June 22, 2012, 02:32:52 AM »

Resonance has earned some glowing reviews so far.

Here are just some. Check them out if you like:

Adventure Gamers [4.5 of 5]

Capsulecomputers [9.5 of 10]
"Every aspect is incredibly close to perfection"

Gamekicker
"Resonance impresses with remarkable narrative, gameplay"


If you guys find more, I'd love to read them...


@Dave
The 'Resonance Debut Trailer'-link on metacritic.com seems broken. Just buffering, no video, '0 views'.
As kind of a central hub, might be important.

Yeah, I know. I've contacted them but I don't know how to change it myself. :(

Lovely little game imho. Anyone into the classic adventure games from Lucas Arts (Monkey Island, Grim Fandango etc) should feel at home. I wish it was made available for some mobile format like ipad or smartphones because it would really fit an audience that likes to solve clues and think a little while daydreaming on a boring bus ride home from work.

4/5 in sweden's major evening newspaper calling it "debut game of the year" (!) and relating it to classics such as Day of the Tentacle (Tim Shafer ftw!).

A great game getting the recognition it deserves. Excuse me while I play it some more and wait patiently for my boxed copy.

A very well written & eloquent review:

FORBES Magazine (!) - A Smart Techno-Thriller In A Classic Format



...and a very interesting interview/ article mix about Resonance developer Vince Twelve and the game itself:

Omaha game developer revitalizes a genre

It's in Norwegian. But they gave the game 8 / 10!

They conclude saying the the game is exciting and memorable. Resonance sets the bar high for the genre.

Reviews On The Run, a Canadian video game review show (think X-play, but with more reviews and less funny hosts), just did a review of Resonance. It did a fairly just and balanced break-down of the game, with no big spoilers leaked that I noticed. The two reviewers both gave scores 8/10.

I can't find link directly to this review on the site just yet, but when I do, I will list it. For now, I'll just link to their homepage. Hopefully, it's not geolocked for non-Canadians. I can't see why they would be.

Edit: The review link is live.

Gameinformer recently reviewed Resonance.  It was in their September 2012 issue, issue 233.  I only know about the game because I read the review in my copy that came in the mail recently (has anyone else ran a printed review of the game?).  They gave it 8/10.

Here's a link to the online version.

"Resonance feels like a lost classic from the golden age of adventure gaming."

I saw this earlier, and I'm still geeking out about it. :)
