"If you don't mind bugs, then I wish you an interesting gaming experience with refined audio." - freegame.cz (1.0 Version Review)
"Sacred Line has a lot of points that would need some work, but somehow, everything looks like it's already what was supposed to be, and I genuinely liked it." - creepygaming.net (1.2b Version Review)

Sacred Line is a free first person dark adventure/surreal thriller with story-driven explorative physics-based gameplay, black-white-red BD style and abstract non-cliche plot.
It takes place in a fully developed universe where your main enemy is a union of third-world countries which is trying to set totalitarian regime over the whole planet, polluting and destroying everything around them. In this game you will face their leader which was summoned by the ancient sect, dealing with unknown sources of power and paranormal activity.
This game has two endings, normal and secret.

You are playing Ellen, a private detective, who is trying to survive in Eastern Europe. Lately detective business, which she inherited from her missing sister Sarah, almost ceased its existence and one day, before she was going to close her office, she got an anonymous call. The unknown asked her to find a hidden forest outpost and told her about its position. That was just the beginning.

Almost every object in the game is physically interactive. You can drag'n'drop things using Left Mouse Button, glass and walls are breakable.
This game is recommended to thinking experienced mature audience, fans of surreal/complex/mysterious but explainable plots.

The game is now available at Desura:
The existing 2.5 buyers will get Desura keys as soon as I'll have the time.
It's still 1$ cheaper on the official website.

The game is actually still in development, and you can look at the new in-game weapons:

Fan-made Italian translation of the 1.2c version. Lacks a lot of 1.3b additions, but features new optimization.

HIS complete?
The game ends with "cliffhanger" otherwise it wouldn't be even released because of the amount of work for one man.
There's "Sacred Line: Genesis", a Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version of this game which extends story and explains a lot of things, will be released this autumn.

By the way, the secret ending provides another point of view at the whole story and kinda makes it complete in terms of plot. It's an "easter egg" though.

The game was an interesting experience, but I left the game more confused than anything ^^ Ran into some issues and I really don't get the characters motivation. I just wanted to do a 1 part Let's Play but I somehow had to keep playing. Really did not enjoy Part 2 (?) with the red lines, since you waste several minutes if you walk the wrong paths :/ My favorite thing was the decision to keep it in red white and black - this made up for huge issues.

Anyway, hope you enjoy and maybe can take something from it: Youtube.com

But it's a good start.
