Breached is a futuristic exploration game that has a cartoonish feel. You get to explore a place that is very far away all so that you can complete various tasks and find out more about the character. It’s really exciting and fun to delve into such a story, especially since it develops in a very distinct fashion.

Gameplay

The controls in this game are great since you rarely use the keyboard here, instead you move only with your mouse. This means that you can play from the couch if you have a wireless mouse. As for the storyline, you get to find various diary entries that will help you figure out what happened and how you can survive on your own.

The gameplay is however quite repetitive and you will get bored after sometime. That doesn’t mean it’s bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just something that you can see as bland at times. There are 3 maps and the story is pretty much the same everywhere so there’s no incentive to play the game multiple times. It’s a shame to be honest but in the end it does show the true commitment and attention to detail that you can get here, which is extraordinary in its own right.

Of course, there are situations when the game shines as well. You would found the game world to be very immersive and exploring it is just a ton of fun. The attention to detail is exemplary and the quality showcased here is very good. You will like the fact that each diary piece and each location is detailed, so you do get the immersion factor right from the start. It’s nice to see that the game does pride itself with exploration and it does that very well.

The attention to detail helps you, especially since there’s no particular guidance at first. They do let you into the world without a good tutorial but you do learn how to get around on your own which is a plus to be honest.

Graphics and sounds

Graphically, the game does have an artsy look. You do get the feeling of being helpless and isolated from the entire experience. The structures are barren and you can barely find someone else to get a good result. There are no creatures aside from some large glowing balls that will shock you at times. The music complements such a feeling nicely and it does provide you with that sense of fear all the time.

Conclusion

Overall, the game is worth its asking price. It’s nice to play and even if it lasts for around 4 hours of gameplay or so, the feeling of exploring a barren land is exciting and fun. It’s definitely fun to play and it does provide great possibilities, which is nice to say the least. If you want a relaxing experience that will also place you in front of some interesting puzzles, the title does deliver that in spades.
