Well I have it. I am kind of glad just because the FMV was so well done and it is really hard to find now.
But it isn't a top rated game to me. I would give it an A for look and effort. Great concept and begining story line. B for voice talent, some was great, a few were ok and the rest were good.
What would bring it down is along the same lines as Jenny100 referenced. To me the stall was diving for the money. I initially got a kick out of threats and first end of game moment. But it wears thin pretty fast. I also think that at least the first two parts of the game should have been released together to make it a longer, more plot detailed offering at that price. I also understand that given financial investments and such - why the developer would release the game and try to recoup some of the money tossed into the game thus far. I also know that all of the video footage for the entire trilogy has been shot and that cost already realized.
The other thing that I have read is a frequently mentioned misconception. The game is serialized but not into 12 separate games. It is planned for three games - each game covering several different chapters. Well according to Michi Lantz - the developer.
The storyline of the Zelenhgorm computer game is divided into a trilogy, three parts. Each of these parts will be further divided into episodes. So this first trilogy part, Zelenhgorm: The Great Ship, will have three or four episodes.
Again, great premise and vision. Beautiful footage, good acting - too short of a game and some very awkward game play moments.
So a C+ game at a high price.
But I really like Michi Lantz and respect her vision for this game. I have high hopes that the game play and puzzles can be racheted up a bit on the 2nd game. I think with some TLC in this area -Zelehngorm can and will become a good game and series.
