Yeah, I have to more or less agree unfortunately. While it's kind of explained how everybody died, the main character never really encounters anything that could logically have been responsible for everything. The few monsters I saw just didn't seem ... well they weren't exactly Necromorphs. The "everybody is dead except the hero" is bad enough, but Stasis barely tries to show how that might have happened. It's more of a stereotype than anything.

I played Cayne and had no idea what was happening until I realized it was a side story or something to this game. 


On Cayne: I really don't like playing adventure games where I'm a pregnant woman. I feel bad for not solving the puzzles right away and forcing this poor woman to run all over this unhygienic facility when she's about to pop

I don't know what to think. The backgrounds and environments are very well done, but the animations are a bit rough around the edges. The main character's voice is solid, the other voice actors range from over-the-top to downright amateurish and the sound effects can get annoying too. The gameplay has a lot of pixel hunting. The story kept me interested enough to want to see it through to the end but I don't like how it needlessly plays up the cruelty for shock value, and the supposedly big reveals at the end just left me cold. I really like the idea of going through an abandoned place, following in the footsteps of dead people and reading their logs along the way, but it's not done organically here like in BioShock or Soma; it's just a collection of tangentially related biographies that you stumble upon one after another.

I think I understand what the "doubt" rating means a little better after playing this. I wouldn't say I regret putting in the effort but there are much more enjoyable adventure games out there than this, and certainly much better stories with similar themes as this one.
