***FEATURING THE VOICE OF BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH***
***NOMINATED FOR TWO BAFTA GAME AWARDS 2012***
You’ve been stranded on a dying spacecraft, spiralling into a black hole … and then your problems really start. “The Nightjar” is an incredible ‘video game with no video,’ featuring the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness, Sherlock, War Horse).
You’ll have to see with your ears, using only sound to survive all that deep space has to throw at you — “The Nightjar” has world-beating sound design and incredible 3D audio technology. From the moment the crew of the Nightjar run for their lives (leaving you behind in a malfunctioning airlock), you’ll find yourself immersed in one of the most realistic game worlds ever created.
To progress, explore using only what you can hear to navigate. Deal with the surprises you meet as you move. Defeat ... well, you'll find out ...
CAN YOU BELIEVE YOUR LYING EARS?
***iPhone 6+ is not supported, but the game works perfectly on iPhone 4S, 5, 5C and 6 and iPad 2 upwards.***
“The Nightjar” may well be the best game ever made for headphones and is a sensory experience you’ll never forget, made by a team that’s won more than a dozen awards including BAFTA, IMGA, Sony, GSMA and D&AD awards.
The game is 100% accessible for those who typically use VoiceOver, too.
What's New in Version 1.2.5
UI fixes on the orientation wheel in game.
This is a game where you really have to immerse yourself into it mentally to get the most out of. Don't be afraid to play this game in the dark and having headphones are a must. I found the total game time to be a little bit over an hour, I played in fifteen minute increments over a few nights. I also bought the app pack which was ten dollars so I can't comment on the money to value ratio but if this game is six dollars or less it is well worth it. There is no replay value as in no multiplayer and no scores. What you're playing for is an experience. With that said this game may or may not be right for you but I believe it's more than worth it.
Love it! But one flaw
I absolutely loved Papa Sangre and Papa Sangre II even more and this game certainly doesn't disappoint. I love the whole sci-fi feel to it but it's still extremely unnerving being in this kind of environment again.
However, one thing I've noticed is that the sound is much harder to discern and find than in the previous two games (especially when comparing it to Papa Sangre II). I died and got stuck quite often because I couldn't tell where the sound was coming from in relation to the background sound effects. If the 3D sound mechanic was fixed up a bit more, it would definitely be a little less frustrating to play.
Cool idea, but takes patience
The idea behind this game is pretty cool, and it is pretty well done. I just found it too difficult for me. It takes lots of practice to get used to moving around using only sound to guide you. Found myself getting frustrated and giving up a lot. Not because the game wasn't set up well, I just don't have the patience to put that much practice into a game.
