Über das Spiel

„I Saw Black Clouds“ ist ein interaktiver psychologischer Thriller mit übernatürlichen Elementen und einer sich verzweigenden Geschichte.

Nachdem sich Kristinas Freundin das Leben nimmt, kehrt Kristina auf der Suche nach Antworten in ihren Heimatort zurück. Die dunklen Geheimnisse um den Tod ihrer Freundin, auf die sie dabei stößt, bringen sie selbst und jene, die ihr nahestehen, in Gefahr. Sie erkennt, dass die Wahrheit viel komplexer ist, als sie je angenommen hätte.

Kristina hat ein Trauma erlebt und versucht, damit klarzukommen, was vorgefallen ist, und ihre unterdrückten Gefühle darüber aufzuarbeiten. Allerdings stellt sich heraus, dass sie in ihrer Vorstellung unterschiedliche Versionen des schicksalhaften Ereignisses konstruiert hat, sodass sie nun die Wahrheit herausfinden muss. Als sie für eine Beerdigung in ihren Heimatort zurückkehrt, trifft sie dort ihre beste Freundin Charlotte (Rachel Jackson) wieder, und damit beginnt für sie eine spannende Selbstfindungsreise.

Wie du mit den Charakteren im Spiel interagierst und welche Entscheidungen du triffst, bestimmt, was du alles erlebst, wie sich deine Reise gestaltet und welche Auflösung dich am Ende erwartet.

  • Ein interaktiver psychologischer Realfilm-Thriller, der in Großbritannien gedreht wurde.
  • Eine sich verzweigende Geschichte, die je nach deinen Entscheidungen und Aktionen dramatische Wendungen nimmt.
  • Echtzeit-Übersicht über den Beziehungsstatus, der im Spielverlauf Einfluss auf die Geschichte nimmt.
  • Echtzeit-Übersicht über die Persönlichkeitseigenschaften, die sich auf Basis deiner Entscheidungen entwickeln.
  • In den Hauptrollen Nicole O'Neill („Red Sparrow“, „Die Schöne und das Biest“) und Rachel Jackson („Outlander“).
  • Freispielbare Features wie etwa das Überspringen von Szenen oder die Persönlichkeitsbewertung.
  • Inklusive Streamer-Modus, in dem während Live-Streams Entscheidungen zwecks Zuschauerbeteiligung pausiert werden.

Leichte Spoiler.
Wenn ich könnte würde ich das Spiel weder gut noch schlecht Bewerten. Der Anfang hat mir extrem gut gefallen und ich hatte die Hoffnung es würde eine Geschichte werden, bei dir wir als Protagonist das Leben unserer verstorbenen Freundin selbst noch einmal erleben und Hinweise sammeln, wie es zu ihrem Tod kommen konnte. Dann kam das unvermeidliche und man driftet ein bisschen ins Klischeehafte ab.
Nichtsdestotrotz bleibt der zweite Teil des Spiels spannend und erinnert stellenweise an einen Horrorfilm im Kino.

Ansonsten kein Gameplay. Nur die Geschichte und unsere Entscheidungen, die erfreulicherweise Einfluss auf die Story haben. Das Spiel hat einen eher düsteren Grundton. Jeder der etwas leichteres will, dem würde ich zu Five Dates raten.
Die Schauspieler machen ihre Arbeit solide.
Was mich ein wenig gestört hat, war das man die Figuren einfach nur oberflächlich kennenlernt. Zwischendurch nerven sie mich sogar richtig.
Das ist meiner Meinung nach auch ein großes Problem bei Spielen die wie ein Film agieren, aber eben keiner sind. Wie schafft man es die Dichte einer Erzählung mit den Elementen des Spiels zu verbinden.

Ein ganz nett gemachtes Full Motion Video (gibt es auch Half Motion Videos ?) von der Qualität eines SchleFaz-Titels auf Tele 5. Die schauspielerische Qualität der Darsteller ist zweckmässig gut (nur die Hauptfigur leistet sehr gute Arbeit) und für 2-3maliges Durchspielen ist dieser Vollbewegungsvideofilm (?) ganz unterhaltsam. Unbedingt gemerkt haben sollte man sich die zuvor gegebenen Antworten, da dieses Bewegungsvideo (?) sonst leicht genauso ausfallen könnte, wie beim Durchspielen zuvor. Auf der technischen Seite waren auf meinem Pc-System keine Probleme zu erkennen. Nur der FSP (Full Sale Price) war mir deutlich zu hoch. Empfehlen kann ich dieses FMV daher nur zum HSP (Half Sale Price) oder darunter. Viel Spass beim Anschauen und Antworten.

I think this was my third Wales Interactive FMV story game (Late Shift & The Bunker being the others), and it's easily the worst of the bunch. The jumbled story is all over the place and ultimately tries to explain away its shortcomings in a pretty annoying way. Janky and frequently jarring scene transitions and multiple non-decisions that can lead into game over (Go left or go right? Really?). Muddled character motives, unclear story progression and a disappointing overall experience.

[h1]I Saw Silver Linings[/h1]

It doesn't show its hand until it will have tested the patience of many, but I think in the pantheon of modern FMV titles it's sufficiently interesting to recommend (with some caveats).

Consider me an avid indie FMV game dabbler. Over time I've realised that the real beauty of such interactive films, much like VR games, isn't that they continuously break new ground towards some singularity future entertainment form. It's that indie creator spirit that flows through their design and writing and all the quirks and eccentricities that come with that. I'm British, so I always love the underdog.

As I've reviewed multiple FMV and 'choose your own adventure' games, be it The Walking Dead, She Sees Red, Late Shift, etc, I've really taken to finding a potential readable message in the totality of the choices. One of the unique things about such games is your ability to enjoy the intertextual narratives told over multiple playthroughs and the totality of the choices. The actual narrative is told over multiple playthroughs rather than a single viewing. Rather nifty.

I saw Black Clouds (ISBC) has got my number. Without spoiling too much, ISBC opts for a more advanced form of The Complex's method of choices contributing to a character profile. The narrative very uniquely allows for a flexibility in diverging timelines and subtly splitting them in a way I've never seen before. This is a more mature approach to interactive films. Less about choices for merely choices' sake, but weaving them into the premise of the narrative itself. You could scoff at that and say the premise just justifies what would usually be bad practice in such a game (like cosmically shifting pieces on the board for dramatisation purposes), but I think that would be uncharitable. One set of subtle choices splits the game's events in a significant and impressive way that can be easily missed.

If anything drags the game down it's just some of the basics. Choices don't segue from scene to scene smoothly, resulting in a jagged cut of an audio-visual experience. It's something you get used to, but it really undermines the perceived quality of the overall product. Also, until the game won me back at the end it feels EXTREMELY slow. Scenes drag on without much front-end intrigue or hook. It's much better as an overall experience than it is a first playthrough.

Otherwise, it's very competently shot and acted whilst dialling up the seriousness of its premise and themes significantly compared to its contemporaries. Whilst this means it lacks some of the delightful quirkiness of other FMV games, ISBC takes advantage of its themes and tone to great effect. Nicole O'Neill is especially believable as the protagonist and acts her heart out. The aforementioned split in the game's events effectively doubles the scenes with a different cast and alters existing ones. It must have been a significant production undertaking. All impressive stuff.

Whilst ISBC pushes the binary choice mechanic into an interesting place (and remains a very mobile friendly solution), I do hope FMV games start to go in a more interesting direction. At Dead Of Night's blend of live-action and graphics to allow you to freely traverse around an environment whilst avoiding an AI character shows us how FMV games can be more mechanically experimental than the 'choose your own adventure' delivery. The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker's finicky (and Her Story's perfected) text entry also show an alternative.

Still, where some have seen black clouds I see silver linings. For all its technical hiccups, slow pace, and initial lack of hook, it takes binary choice FMV into just about as interesting a place as it will go. Whilst I hope for more experimental FMV games at some stage, ISBC is a worthy addition to the mobile-friendly binary choice genre. Just make sure you add an extra spoonful of patience for all its foibles.

I love FMVs and wanna support them where I can, but, boy, this is a mess. As many have already written, whenever you need to choose an option the music and game sort of cuts, which is really annoying when wearing headphones. Since you have these options like every minute, the game becomes a choppy mess that destroys any immersion. Filming and Editing was both done rather poorly, especially compared to their earlier games. And I am really sorry, but I also did not like any of the casting choices I've seen so far. When this game turned into a pseudo horror movie, I decided to stop. There is just nothing redeeming about this game for me. Sorry.

I should start by saying I'm a huge fan of FMV games and have played a bunch. I did 4 playthroughs (two were speedruns) of this game, and nothing really changed. I got the same ending every time, which was frustrating. I'm left not knowing how my decisions mattered. A few times the game froze. You have to exit, then resume and it picks up at the last checkpoint. The lighting and makeup is awful, but the actors did a good job. The story was easy to follow, creepy and cool. I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews about the story. It's typical horror/thriller movie stuff. It gives you the feeling you are watching a movie and not playing a video game. You'll want to pause choices, because it goes way too fast if you don't, and the answers pop up before the questions sometimes. This also gives your viewers a chance to help you choose if you're streaming. I love the fact that once you have seen a scene, you can skip it on future playthroughs. It's similar to games like Late Shift where you can just sit back, relax and enjoy it without having to worry about QTE nonsense. Overall I enjoyed it and would recommend it for fans of FMV games.

[h1]How much longer will I have to wear this mask?[/h1]

A new FMV published by Wales Interactive who are very well known for their best interactive movie Late Shift. I saw Black Cloud cannot be compared to Late shift, however, it is not a bad FMV. The story will be fully understood if you play the game multiple times. The story about Kristina who lost her close friend, she doesn't know if it was a suicide or someone did it. She and her friend started to look for answers and visiting an abandoned hospital, but things didn't go as they expected.

I'm sad to say the acting is very mediocre, the only good actress is the main one. The filming is ok, the story is not bad when you understand it fully, but you could be confused when you play the first play-through only as it has four different endings. There are some cons of the game, the music sometimes cuts off and loops, especially in the bar scene, also, the transition between the scenes after the choices is not smooth.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2452387006

In the beginning, I didn't like how the choices appear while the characters are still speaking, and it is a timed choice as well, but there is an option for streamers to pause the choices to give you time to listen then choose what you think it fits your scenario. I liked that whatever choice you choose, changes the main character's behavior and does change the course of the story. The relationship between the characters changes as well, they could trust you or not depends on your choices.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2452398725

Pros:
+FMV game.
+Interesting story.
+Choices and consequences.
+Choices are timed by default but there is an option to pause them.
+Behavior meter and characters relationships (Depends on your choices)
+Multiple endings.
+Good soundtracks.
+Steam achievements.

Cons:
-The transition between the scenes is not smooth.
-In some scenes, the music cuts off and loop (The bar scene)
-No manual save.
-Mediocre acting

There are some jump scares that made me jump and even gasp, they did a good job with that. The game is not very long, it is quite short but the more you play it, the more you understand Kristina. I recommend it to FMV lovers.

To be honest here, this game is a prime example of psychological abuse that is propelled violently at the audience that experiences this. I went into this with an open mind and a open heart, and left with nothing but an empty bowl of promises and a migraine. My entire chat is angry at me. They say they want to get rid of all my gifted subs. They want to refund my bits. They want to destroy me. All because I played this game. All because I tried to support the amazing _________ who wrote this, _________. And the worst part is that he only got 2 frames in which he fell out a window. Wow.

But do I recommend Maybe. IDK.

Pretty entertaining if you feel like watching a mildly interactive horror movie.

It's pretty hard to tell though if you're doing something right or wrong. I got one of the bad endings but I'm not really sure why.

This is an FMV game similar in format to Late Shift. It's an interactive movie where you make choices. There is no free roam exploration of the environment like in games such as Contradiction - Spot the Liar, for example.

I can't understand why people don't like this game because I consider it a very cleverly put together psychological thriller. Unlike Late Shift, where the change in story is limited by changing stories, an entirely different playing out of the story can happen if you make the opposite choices to what you did on your first playthrough.

The acting is very good. Nicola O'Neill is brilliant in the lead role.

There are many sinister characters to encounter as the story progresses and there is the feeling of being unsure of who to trust and who not to. The best games have such characters in. People always say that characters have to be likeable. I disagree. As long as characters are interesting and the plot is carefully constructed to keep you wanting to learn more, then the story is a winner. And sinister characters ARE interesting. At the same time, likeable people can be dull in storytelling. So the two-dimensional thinking that likeable people are good to have in a story and unlikable people are not doesn't hold for me.

And the presence of the sinister characters creates a degree of tension - tension which is heightened in the scenes where Kristina is exploring places. I won't give anything away about that, suffice to say that I found it all very suspenseful. A great atmosphere is set up and sustained in this game, not wasted like you see in countless films.

The story, while not being quite as intriguing as in Contradiction - Spot the Liar, is nonetheless very intriguing indeed. It's obvious that things are not what they seem where the death of Emily is concerned. But, depending on which path of the story you're on, you're might not develop an idea of what's really happening until late on. That was my experience anyway.

One playthrough is not enough to learn the full story; it is necessary to play multiple times. But the game is gripping enough to attract people to do that, in my opinion.

Overall, this is a solid game, worth at least 8 out of 10. It's not as gripping as Contradiction - Spot the Liar, which is probably the best of the modern wave of FMV games. But it is a lot better than She Sees Red and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker.

The bottom line - if you like Late Shift, Contradiction - Spot the Liar and The Shapeshifting Detective, then I recommend this game as another addition to your FMV game collection.

About two years ago I discovered the FMV genre and have become a great fan of this type of game. Wales Interactive in particular have published some brilliant titles. I really liked “The Bunker”, dearly loved “Shapeshifting Detective” and “The Complex” and simply adored “Late Shift”. Those titles possessed fantastic actors, decors, often a very cinematic atmosphere, fantastic soundtracks and inventive story-telling rarely found in other games.

“I Saw Black Clouds” is the first title of Wales Interactive that receives a thumbs down from me. It is not all bad, on the contrary. All of the actors do a great job in my opinion. Especially the main character is played with emotional depth. Nicole O´Neill convincingly plays a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The horror elements of the story are really creepy (but I am a wuss anyways) with some great jump-scares. Ever thought “don’t open the door, don’t open the door” while watching a horror movie? Well, now you get to decide for yourself if you open that door and that makes for great immersion in the dreadfully dark story. The soundtrack is very good once more, there are literally hundreds of decisions to be made, four different endings with very different paths leading towards those endings and something around 570 scenes to discover. So far so good, but…

The good acting is nearly ruined by very bad transitions between scenes where you make decisions. Those transitions are hardly ever fluent and require the actors to stare unnaturally into nothingness. There’s almost always a hard cut on the visuals and even a short glitchy pause, a stutter in the audio (soundtrack and background noises as well) during the transitions. I believe that’s why some of the reviewers here perceive the acting as mediocre. I rather think the actors do their best under hopeless circumstances. Even in scenes without player decisions there are weird choices of the director, cuts that make no sense and sudden jumps in the narrative often left me clueless. The real bummer for me was an annoying plot-twist before the last chapter of the game that ridicules everything that was told before. Massive spoiler, do not read if you intend to play the game without prejudice: [spoiler] everything told until the last chapter was just a hypnosis-induced fantasy of the protagonist. [/spoiler]

As mentioned before there are plenty of decisions to be made, but a lot of the decisions you make have no direct consequence at all. You decide that it is not okay to be hypnotised e.g. but you are hypnotised anyways. Well, sometimes those decisions do alter the stats of how you play the character and sometimes have consequences later on. The stats of your character (introspection, honesty, tact, feeling of guilt, acceptance and more) might influence story progression and the ending so this might have been interesting. Yeah, here comes another great “but”: I cannot discern any logic in how your decisions are valued by the game. Right at the end of the game you receive a summary on how you did. On my second playthrough I played a kind person who sacrificed herself for her friends, reacted politely in every situation, but was told that I was a hard person who cared not for friends. On my third run I played as a mean selfless bitch, always antagonising friends in conversation, reacting aggressively whenever possible, knowingly leaving a friend to die even and the game told me I have a good heart and am always loyal to my friends?!?!?

So far I have played three times through “I Saw Black Clouds” with completely different roleplaying, seen over 400 scenes, but still only got one out of four possible endings. I have no clue what to do to get a different ending, but will try a fourth run to see if I this changes my opinion on the game. At least you can skip scenes you have already seen.
