Dutch study Alterego games bring Morris’s mental health. An adventure game, with a lot of research and with a story of the most engaging and shocking, in which we will have to try to avoid going crazy about what we are going to find out.
Morris’s mental health: Una historia conspiranoica
Johnathan morris, is a young man who after receiving a strange audio message from his father, decides to go to his hometown, Greenlake to check the mental health of the same. This one seemed to be talking about aliens and absurd babbling. JohnathanFor his part, he had almost lost contact with his father, since the divorce with his mother.
Our protagonist rolls down a dark, gloomy road for hours, thinking. As he entered town, he was harassed by a vehicle and driven off the road. From there our adventure begins in Greenlake for the pleasure of discovering the truth.
The story draws heavily on the treatment of science fiction in cinema in the 1950s and 1960s. last century with stories of extraterrestrial infiltrations. It was a way of putting the historical context of the terror in the Soviet invasion, transferred to the aliens. Although we probably all associate this theme with the quintessential ’90s series: X file.
The truth is, the story is compelling and you will be “connecting” with it soon. Without a doubt, one of the strongest points of the game
One of the most common sections of the game is its graphics. The the scenarios are mostly simple and not very detailed. Although the resource of almost total darkness is used, which very well “camouflages” this simplicity and its shortcomings in its design. Even the presentation menu of the game is very simple with a mouse cursor on the screen when moving between the different options, but without any practical utility.
But that doesn’t mean that the game even reminds us of a game from 3 generations ago. In fact, the game doesn’t hit 3GB of hard drive space, so that gives us an idea that the graphics waste won’t really be that great.
Yes it is true, that the treatment of lighting and strange colored lights contrast with the deep darkness, it is well represented. This gives the title a pretty interesting supernatural air that supports the theme and atmosphere of the game. Despite this, this section is a bit poor today and is the biggest minus of the game.
Very neat sound environment
Music is an important aspect to define any audiovisual work, and in this case the music brings its grain of sand to imbue us with the unreal and mysterious atmosphere that surrounds everything that happens in Greenlake. The music keeps you going and brilliantly accompanies our protagonist’s journey to find answers. The compositions are also a little nod to the science fiction and suspense films of the 50s and 60s of the last century, recalling these already classic melodies..
To this, we must add the voices of the characters, that the truth is masterfully interpreted. The voice and the monologues of the protagonist with himself, give him a very interesting romantic air
FX also serve their purpose in helping to set the mood for the game and weave that halo of mystery that surrounds everything.
Simple but effective gameplay
In Morris’s mental health our main goal is to investigate. The search for objects to advance the plot is the engine of the game. These are sometimes quite visible, but some are small and you will have to look carefully to not leave anything behind and get trapped. The difficulty is not very high, although you can get stuck if you can’t find the item you need.
The other aspect of the game is infiltration. Johnathan he can only use his flashlight and interact with objects, but we can’t attack or jump, for example. This is why it will be necessary to be precise to avoid being detected by enemies, because the result will always be the same, our death. Sometimes we can also enjoy small Fast events in times of tension or leakage. And the truth is, they thank each other for stepping out of our conscientious search for items a bit and giving the game some fresh air.
Added to all this is a very intuitive way of organizing all the information, notes, audios and photos that we find. It is a useful journal that we will display with a button and in which we will classify in chronological order all the material foundas well as the next goal. We can access it at any time and view or listen to the collected material. The more than simple controls, as well as this useful log, make the gameplay one of the most remarkable points of the game.
Conclusiones Sanity of Morris
Morris’s mental health It’s a game in the style of a graphic adventure. The story is very unusual and the truth is that it is the most attractive.
Added to this is excellent playability, a very remarkable sound environment and a duration of approximately 4 hours. But the graphics, unfortunately, fall short and may cause someone to leave the game when they see an alien design for the first time.. A game for Xbox one/Series cannot have the graphic aspect of a game of the Xbox classic.
If you don’t mind the graphics and some translation errors, the rest of the game maintains the type well and we can consider it an appealing game for investigative game enthusiasts. Fans of the most classic science fiction will also see an engaging game in this one. Don’t forget to keep an eye on AreaXbox for this and other cool games.
