Reviews about the game

Oracle24.06.2017

I really wouldn't recommend this unless it was less than 1$ or free to play. There is so many good walking simulators in Steam, but when it comes to Oracle it feels that it is swiftly develeoped and the story + enviroment is crudely pasted together that holds just barely. There just doesn't seem to be any immaculate element in this game - the island which is available for player to explore is filled with random landmarks and each of these reward player with storytelling which is bizarre and so clueless that it's really hard to if not impossible to keep track on it. From the very beginning to the conclusion I had no clear vision what narrator wanted to tell me, but I might have been too bored even to think about it. There is also apparent graphical glitches occasionally and the exploration is roughly limited with invisible walls. Every cloud has a silver lining though. While the Unity has made it much easier to develeop visually impressive games there was a few points where I forgot the dullness and cons for a moment and just admired the landscapes around me while decent ambient music reached my ears.. If you have a thing with walking sims I really would look elsewhere, but if you still keep considering I am sure that the Oracle won't kill your wallet with those couple of bucks it asks.

The first impressions were not great. The graphics are obviously busted and the view distance was very difficult to deal with. Since this is a walking simulator, it is among some of the worst out there. The walking speed is painfully slow which ruins the beauty of walking simulators that it was absolutely torturous being forced to walk slowly on the incredibly hideous landscape. Sure there are some beautiful moments in this game but this game reminds me too much of the infamous broken game called Jurassic Park: Trespasser back in year 1998. Their graphics and gameplay are surprisingly similar. There are plenty of glitches and invisible walls that add to this unpleasant experience. This certainly did not help me to enjoy Oracle. The only positive is the narration. The narration and difficulties the main character deals with are somewhat solid but that is something to be expected in all first-person adventure games though. Overall, Oracle is simply NOT a good game. 3.2 out of 10

I can't bring myself to give this a thumbs-down - there was a lot of heartfelt work put into this game. I got my money's worth, got some nice screenshots, got 100% achievements. But I ended up just being glad to be done with it. The story doesn't hold together: the prose doesn't even make sense most of the time, even when you exert yourself looking for some metaphor or allegory to hang it from. It's just mumbo-jumbo that sounds like it's trying to be deep and philsophical. I'm ignoring the strange Unity-related bugs, they are not why this game isn't replayable even as a walking simulator. I end up wishing someone would just rewrite all the text boxes, and tell a different story. Very pretty, very relaxing, but there's no meaning to any of it. Recommended in spite of all this because the price is right, and because I wouldn't want to discourage people from making relaxing exploration games.

A lot of people complain about "walking simulators" being too linear, but after playing this one, I gotta say...a little linearity doesn't go astray. Unless you're someone who prefers a gaming experience with quite literally no goal or purpose, other than to wander aimlessly and hear broken shards of narrative whilst accruing the occasional Achievement, the level of satisfaction on offer here may be questionable. I tend to like games with a beginning, middle and an end, and Oracle...well, I guess it has a beginning. And some stuff which comes after. Which is not to say the game has no redeeming features. The sound design is mostly excellent - a vivid recreation of nature in all its splendour - except that the footstep sound effects, like the painfully monotonous voice-over, don't vary much, sounding the same on wooden floorboards as they do on dirt roads. The enticingly abstract piano music which plays throughout, on the other hand, is almost enough to persuade one to forgive the game's other aural shortcomings. The "jump" button is a true curiosity. The sound effect it creates is...er...a little immersion-breaking to say the least, and while it's sometimes necessary to use the button to access certain areas, I encountered at least two points where I was able to magically jump by increments to a preposterous height before coming back down to Earth. A glitch, I'm presuming. Nothing much to complain about, in other words, but not exactly something to praise either. (I might also add that jump buttons are often a tad inadvisable in games which aim to be relaxing and dream-like, as the player must struggle with the constant temptation to idiotically bunny-hop through much of the game, especially if not much of anything is happening. Doesn't exactly add to the "atmosphere", I'm afraid.) The graphics are also generally nice aside from bodies of water, which are regrettably prominent throughout and look more like a "green-screen" insert than an organic part of the game's world (you CAN walk on the bottom of the lake without dying, though; which is, er, "novel" to say the least)! The draw distance of the graphics also proved somewhat dubious, as geography in the distance can sometimes vanish or appear, depending on the angle you're approaching from (I'm assuming it wasn't just my laptop, which generally has no problems with demanding graphics; though Rise of the Tomb Raider admittedly did a good job of kicking its butt)! You'll also occasionally find yourself chasing landmarks which simply can't be reached, although there's no way of knowing that 'til you've wasted several minutes trying. Walking speed is another frequent bone of contention in walking simulators. Here there is only one walking speed, despite the fact that holding down "shift" does try to give the illusion of slowing down by halving the amount of footsteps you hear...without the actual physical speed changing one iota. And then, of course, there's the quality of the writing, the importance of which can never be underestimated when it's the only thing resembling "narrative" in an otherwise meaningless wander. Let's just say that the writing here, while perfectly serviceable, is certainly nothing to "write home about" (pun most likely intended). When all is said and done, the best walking simulators have a sense of focus. Even if the story only intermittently ties in with the scenery being presented, there's still a genuine sense of the player having been on a journey from which they emerge a slightly "changed" person. Sounds a tad lofty and all, but there's ultimately not much point to the narrative unless it tells an interesting story, or at the very least tells us something about "ourselves". I don't feel this game did either, but there may be some out there who feel differently. Only recommended to those who think that "open world" design is a good thing, even when it comes at the expense of a more substantial narrative experience (and anyone willing to hunt down all twenty-four of those Achievements is a fuckin' SAINT, I tell ya). Verdict: 6/10.

Oracle looks intriguing. The graphics look good. After starting up, however, you start to find many flaws. The Narration is voiced well, but it makes little sense. Is the person insane? Is the translation just very bad? I still have no idea what the whole story was. If the person is insane and this is intentional, fine - even interesting. But this needs to be clear one way or the other. It did keep me interested for the 2 hrs it took to complete it. That's not terrible for a game that cost less than $1. There or both minor and major graphical glitches everywhere you look. A mining cart with a wheel floating in the air. Rocks misplaced/lost and floating in water. Nothing so obvious as floating on the surface, but at one point I looked down into a lake and there were a couple rocks floating just under the surface. The trees do not move in the wind... so to fake it, the branches just move around. I don't mean they are flexiable.. The whole piece just moves. Probably ok at a distance, but up close it looks quite poor. One of the first I noticed was objects in the distance show up on the edge of your screen, but they disappear when you look at them if they are far away. When in a valley, or at low elevation, the clouds, which are obviously high altitude clouds, run into the trees on the hill tops looking quite awful. The list could go on quite a while. The audio is mixed bad. There's only one piano track, and while it's nice, it plays over and over continuously. The sound of you walking is always the same. Rocks? Moss? gravel? Wooden stairs? Always the same. The ambience isn't too bad though. Physics - I am not sure there are any aside from gravity. You can walk off a bridge 200 feet above the ground and just keep walking when you hit. You can walk off a ledge into a deep lake and you just walk along the bottom till you find a way out. If you're tryign to walk under a tressel bridge, sometimes you can walk between the supports, sometimes there is an invisible wall. All in all, I can't recommend it to anyone other than someone looking for a quick 100% game. With a bit of time, I feel like the devs could have made this drastically better, and for that reason I can't recommend it, even for $1.

[i]Oracle[/i] is a [b]short "walking simulator" game[/b]. If you like this type of games (and especially those of high quality), [b]do not buy this one[/b]. [u][b]Disadvantages:[/b][/u] [i] •It has no obvious beginning or end. •The game seems to be incomplete. •Speed of "walking" is really slow. •It does not work properly on the graphics site too - plenty of bugs and glitches, invisible walls, short draw distance on high details, the ground and rocks textures are rendered in a low-resolution. •Audio and narration needs fix too - the story is interesting, but the voice of the narrator has not captured me. •Graphic artists could work more on buildings. They are common and uninteresting. They should add maybe add more details but I have made a few nice screenshoots.[/i] http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=924057422 [u][b]Advantages:[/b][/u] [i] •The game is not overpriced. •It is droping cards and badge looks good •Easy achievements for achievement hunters (guide for getting them is [url=http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=875981174]here[/url]). •Short playtime[/i] [h1]4/10[/h1]
