Night Breed: The Interactive Movie

Adventure 1990 Dos Dosbox Ocean Multimedia novel Movie style

Not an adventure, norr a movie, but a hot mess!

I wish I didn't have to call on the movie gone into game land with the result equaling terrible, but unfortunately this is the case here too; Night Breed was supposed to be a retelling adventure style spiked with action sequences based on Clive Barker's Nightbreed movie. The recipe is that of an awful adventure game based mostly on QTEs, and when this poor implementation is not used, it's all down to some strategy style point and clicking of randomly generated (falling into the scenery) items. It makes no sense, the controls are awful, the graphics are an absolute shame and the overall experience can only be saved by one's propensity for the horror of bad design! Oh, man, I've seen some awful animations in my life, but I could have drawn smoother animations, and I'm no games development company as Ocean is. Although, if I am to give The Angry Videogame Nerd his due, the cringe inducing fear of Ocean and its rainbow logo suddenly doesn't feel so alien to me either! I found however a bit of closure with Noctropolis a spooky adventure but a tiny bit better (but significantly so!) adventure game.
