P.A.M.E.L.A. is beautiful. Not technically mind blowing but still very lovely as you can see here and in this screen shot of a robot.
Unfortunately this beauty was not enough for me. The controls were very all over the place, at times clunky, at times confusing. This feeling was only based on 30 minutes of play, but there’s just way too much happening in this game to hold my interest. Here is just an example of how much seem to have to pay attention to you if you keep playing. The controls were so all over the place and the story being told not energetic enough that I couldn’t hold patience to find out if it was easier than it looked.
There seemed to be a set up for combat later on top of the survival being suggested. I actually set the settings for pure exploration, but the controls and UI just made me so dizzy that it’d be an issue of not knowing what I could ignore.
Now you’re mileage may vary. There is definitely something here and if you have more patience than I it might be your new thing.
P.A.M.E.L.A. is available on Steam currently for $17.49 till 6/25/2020 (regularly $24.99)
