We become a secret agent type in Gravity Bone
We don’t actually get a gravity bone, although a gravity bone sounds like someone gets after a hard nights drinking. Performance, perseverance and stamina are all key! Although this type of Gravity Bone is just a small narrative game that puts you in the shoes of a secret agent.
This looks similar to something?????
And you would be right. Check out our talk about Thirty Flights of Loving, as it is made by the same people and Gravity Bone is a freebie part of that game. But what is Gravity Bone? (Tada to the next genius heading ya?)
Gravity Bone is the second game by a developer called Blendo, and it is their experiment in narrative and story telling with minimal direction given to the user. Thirty Flights of Loving was their next narrative experiment followed by Quadrilateral Cowboy which is considered and full fledged game (not short). They have done a couple of strategy games in between (Atom Zombie Smasher and Flotilla), but their experimentation of narrative and story telling, is quite unique and fun.
As far as we can make it out, you are a spy, doing things that spies do, like they spy and stuff while looking inconspicuous. You are given a few spy-y type of tasks to do which for me and Jez, did indeed seem to be to hard to accomplish. But we are sure there was something just so simple, that we overlooked. We are sure the game would have ended with a twist or something. (We would not make great spies)
Why you should or shouldn’t get Gravity Bone?
We touched on this lightly with our Thirty Flights of Loving review, and the answer is still yes. You will have to buy Thirty Flights of Loving to get Gravity Bone, but if Blendo can do a game that has the thrills and spills on Thirty Flights of Loving, support the developer! The developer has made some great games which we will be reviewing shortly, but if you can’t wait for then give Flotilla through our friends at Kinguin a go, then try Atom Zombie Smasher through our same friends.
While you are there, support the developer and get Thirty Flights of Loving for cheap. (Which includes this game for free.)
