Suvival horror, pixel-style
If you can imagine classic survival horror experience Silent Hill cut down and rendered in old-school 3D pixel art, then you have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Lone Survivor. It's not quite as scary or as intense as the aforementioned legend but for an indie title, it gets a lot of things right. The game finds you in control of a masked man who must escape from a city that has been ravaged by a deadly disease and turned everyone into zombies. The whole thing is played out a bit like a 2D side scrolling platformer, but adds in elements of stealth, roleplaying adventures, and of course survival horror. There's a lot of choice in how you approach things, and you can try and sneak your way to escape, or gun everything down. You can eat and sleep as much as possible or use drugs to give yourself an edge, or look for other survivors to help you out or just go for it alone. It's this range of approaches and the depth of the story that are perhaps the key points of interest in the game, and for its mature and complex handling of what could have been a run of the mill experience. Don't let the cute pixel graphics fool you, this is quite dark stuff and although it's not got many real scares, there's a genuinely unsettling mood which is all the more remarkable for having been created with this visual style. This Director's Cut of the game also includes two new endings, new dialogue and missions, new music and a handful of other bits and bobs, so if you do want to give it a whirl, this is the version to go for.
