Creaks, a puzzle game developed by Amanita Design with dark colors, with a story revolving around a world of monsters that exist in your own home.
If you love dark 2D games like Creepy Tale or Fran Bow, you shouldn’t miss. And if you’re curious to know what happened in Creaks, watch today’s video carefully.
The story begins when the main character, temporarily called Tony, is reading a book in a room with a flickering ceiling light. Annoyed with the constant flickering of light, Tony tried to fix the lamp but accidentally broke it. A small earthquake suddenly appeared, causing the wall sticker to fall, revealing a mysterious passage.
Out of curiosity, Tony grabbed the flashlight, and began his journey to explore the mysterious room. But the sudden earthquake caused Tony to drop the flashlight on the way and get stuck on the ladder. Unable to return to the old way, Tony only had to go deeper in the hope of finding another exit, without knowing that he had accidentally landed in a mysterious castle.
Inside the castle, Tony first encounters strange monsters shaped like objects in the house, but afraid of light. At the same time, a giant monster with sharp claws was discovered that was the cause of the recent earthquakes.
Avoiding the monster and climbing deep inside the castle, Tony saw a birdman living there. Out of curiosity, he decided to follow the mysterious creature and saw another creature with a similar appearance. Two bird people, one young and one old, discuss something, as if they are looking for a book to prevent the giant monster from destroying the castle.
Tony continued to follow but was spotted by the oldest looking birdman, and forced to get a book for him. However, when the old birdman realized the book wasn’t what he needed, he left with the younger-looking birdman without attacking Tony.
Feeling extremely confused, Tony continued to follow and saw the young birdman having to fight the giant monster with a small crossbow. Obviously, the birdman failed to repel the monster, but after escaping, he called two more birdmen who looked like engineers to help him, but the plan still failed.
The three continued to try other traps to trap the monster despite constantly receiving bitter fruit, in the end, the young birdman decided to use a larger crossbow to finish the monster, but was beaten by the birdman. master stopped. The two birdmen began to quarrel and only stopped when the monster approached them, and together ran away from the clutches of the giant beast.
Continuing to track the bird people, Tony climbed onto the scrap metal cable car and was carried to the other side of the castle. There, Tony saw two engineer birds repairing a broken wall, but the repair had to be halted due to the disturbance of the large monster.
Again, on the way, Tony brought a mysterious book that he picked up. The young birdman saw the book, he thanked Tony and hurriedly brought the book to the oldest birdman, which seemed to be the key to stopping the monster.
With the young birdman gone, Tony continued his journey and met the two engineer birds at the bottom of the castle. The three were attacked by a giant monster, and even the smallest birdman was swallowed by the monster.
After eating a delicious meal, the monster temporarily spared the other two. The engineer bird burst into tears when he saw that his friend had been eaten and sadly walked away, leaving Tony alone. Following the engineer bird, Tony was surprised to learn that the monster was created by the engineer bird to provide energy to maintain the entire underground castle, but did not expect now. it took away her best friend.
At this time, the old birdman came down with the book and announced that he had found a way to destroy the monster. They agreed to make a portable lantern, using the light of the lamp to control the monster, and of course, the uninvited guest Tony also had to lend a hand.
After the lantern was completed, Tony and the birds gathered on the upper floors of the castle to fight the monster, giving Tony a chance to crawl into its belly to rescue the swallowed birdman.
And when the light inside the lantern was released, the monster, unable to withstand the light, exploded. Everything ended well, Tony was honored as a hero by the bird people. In thanks, the birdmen repaired the stairs, allowing Tony to return to his room.
After safely returning home, Tony hastily closes the secret door and glues the wallpaper, the sky is now bright, and his adventure ends here.
Creaks is a good game?
And basically, we can see, the plot of Creaks is not so special, even it is not as dark as expected, perhaps that is why few people talk about this game, but you will surely Surprised to know that the game has won many awards in terms of graphics and sound in the three years of 2018, 2019 to 2020, so what has made its success?
First, I think about the graphics and second the gameplay. Creaks’ colors and strokes give players the feeling that they themselves are lost in the adventures of childhood fairy tales, like reliving childhood with works like “The Adventures of a Little Girl”. Alice in Wonderland”, or “Peter Pan and these lost children”, it seems that has helped the game impress quite a lot of gamers.
In addition, the game is also divided into many types, some for entertainment, for gossip, to save money for gamers, there are also types that focus on building deep storylines and Creaks is not a focused game. plot, so we just need to focus on the gameplay and experience of the game.
The gameplay of Creaks is actually quite simple, it is built in a point and click puzzle style, the monsters have their own movement mechanism and just need to face a few times you will know what to do. What’s next, so basically, I feel like Creaks mechanics will be a bit confusing for some of you who don’t like puzzles, but it will be quite interesting if you love brainstorming games like this.
The atmosphere in Creaks is also built quite well, the scene is a bit murky, but not so dark that it makes people feel heavy, all at a level enough to make gamers feel attractive and the creatures Surreal objects inspired by objects also make players equally excited. For example, it is quite similar to the movie Coraline, or a little easier to understand, it is similar to the Creepy Tale series I made a video before, but in a more complex puzzle version and a more restrained plot.
But wait, that’s not to say that Creaks doesn’t have interesting elements installed by the manufacturer for you to exploit. One thing that I like about Creaks is the achievement system that is transformed into the pictures you can see in the game.
According to the manufacturer’s share, we have a total of 35 paintings, and they are drawn and inspired by the art of painting of the 17th and 18th centuries. These paintings are not only for display, they also contain different stories, sometimes about love, about family, about sacrifice. But there are times when the pictures are meaningless and quite strange, or maybe I’m not good enough to understand those pictures, so if you find these pictures interesting, please leave a comment. Comment below let me know.
Not only that, the puzzles in Creaks also have their own music accompaniment to guide players in the right direction. And for those who play games to chill, to relieve themselves after hours of stressful gaming, the music of Creaks will surely immerse you in its fantasy world. And if you feel more stress and pressure when playing Creaks then… I don’t know what to do?
All in all, Creaks is not a suitable game for those of you who love the thrilling action genre, crossfire and intense combat, because the game rhythm is very slow, so I will not recommend this game for those players in the group above. And if you want to find a game to relieve stress, or make you more stressed after hours of intense combat in the Endless Plains, then Creaks is a pretty good choice.
It has all the elements of a light game, good music, accessible gameplay mechanics, puzzles that are not too easy nor too difficult, and do not require you to have good hand manipulation or anything. So if you’re looking for a game that soothes the soul but isn’t too princess-like, you can try Creaks.
