This is the story of how I got hooked on the game and began to explore its possibilities. I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time.
Yes, it’s a bit of a mess, but I’m glad that it happened to me. It’s strange how life is sometimes like that.
A lot of what I wrote about here is probably a bit confusing, but I hope you get what I mean. I was trying to describe my early feelings about the game—a time when I thought I was really excited about it, but also a lot of fear.
Fear. Fear that I wouldn’t be able to do what I wanted to do. Fear that I would be unable to find the courage that I needed, the will to continue it, and the means to overcome it all.
And that was really the crux of the problem. I had never played a video game before and had no idea how to approach it. Im glad that I did, and I hope its helped you figure out what to do from here on.
To be totally honest I didnt even know what a time loop was before I played it. Thats why I was excited, but not sure how to deal with it. I have this theory that the game needs to be a learning experience, but also a challenge. I also knew that I couldnt go back later to change how I played. I had no idea how to make the game fun for me to play.
One of the best parts of playing Vagrant Story is the story, of course. I have no doubt that this is not the game that will satisfy everyone’s expectations, but it’s a solid game nonetheless. It offers a few different approaches to gaming, with some great twists on the horror genre.
The story starts the game with your character, the vagrant, waking up on a beach surrounded by giant waves with no memory of how he got there. He has no idea how he got here, but he does have the ability to make his way through the waves, seemingly unaware of where he is, as well as the ability to make portals to other spaces. As the game goes on, more of these portals come into play.
The game also offers a number of different approaches to horror gaming, not the least of which is the inclusion of the horror-horror elements of the game. The horror element is something that’s often overlooked when gaming, but it’s a great way to give players a break from gameplay elements that might not be as scary. You can’t play the game and not know that the game involves a lot of darkness and horror.
I would say that the game is very much at a point in the development where it is very much in an early alpha state. It also features some very cool and unique horror gameplay.
