Explore the lost world of KAIRO. An strange bleak world filled with vast strange monuments. As you explore the depths within you must solve puzzles to bring ancient machinery back to life and give KAIRO a purpose once again. KAIRO is a first person atmospheric exploration and puzzle solving game.
This game made me bored faster than a math lesson can do.
- Decent scripting I guess
- Pretty much everything
- Boring gameplay
- No storyline
You spawn in a world with absoutely no clue how you got there. You don't have a name, you don't have a goal, you don't have anything to find. The story is non existing.
Some games can be good even without a clear goal or a background story, but not in this case.
Not only do you have no goal, enemies or purpose in Kairo whatsoever, the puzzles are also simple but yet confusing. You can not interact with anything and you don't have an inventory, meaning that all you can do is move objects by walking towards them, or jump on random platforms in hope that something will happen. Really, really simple puzzles. And when I say it's also confusing, what I mean is, you don't really know why you are doing what you are doing due to the non existing story and the few hints you get doesn't really help that much at all.
Do I recommend this game? No. I don't recommend it to anyone.
People that love adventures, no. The game is as simple as it can be (including the soundtracks and gameplay in general) with nothing to explore or discover at all. You don't even have a purpose or anything to lose. Not even health (no, you can't even die in this game).
People that like puzzle games, no. Again, the puzzles are basic, yet confusing, and you don't really know why you are doing them.
People that love a good storyline, no. There is no story in this game at all.
Why people like this is beyond me. I have played many bad games, but this without doubt in my top 5 most boring games ever.
2/10 - Really bad
