I like games that somehow teach and entertain. Goetia is one such game just because it looks up the meaning of the title before playing and then is sent to a wormhole on the internet for an hour or two. For someone like me, Goetia is the habit of calling demons and angels from a 17th-century grimoire called Solomon’s Lesser Key.In-game terminology, Goetia Point and click An adventure that first appeared on the PC in 2016, won several awards, got some good reviews, and finally unfolded on the Nintendo Switch before moving to the Xbox.
You die like a dodo and start the game, and the orb-like spirit rises from the tombstone in the field by the tree. You are Abigail Blackwood. As a young teenager, the last idea was to fall through the window and die. You died in the late 19th century, but now it’s time. You will soon arrive at an old house called Blackwood Manor, a huge mansion with lots of rooms. You explore an old house, but at that time it was unfriendly to the old place and was abandoned like an ancient ruin. Immediately you will see the resident playing with outdated magic and occult books. When you see a giant bird claiming to be a demon, you quickly find it difficult to find the truth …
Goetia’s writing, storytelling, and world building are excellent. You find yourself in a unique and interesting world full of conspiracy, magic, and mystery. Most of the story is told through books, things, and documentation in the house itself. The developers have built a great journey with some thorough research and well-thought-out story design.
Gameplay consists of controlling this little sphere of light around the space. Point with the cursor to follow where you are going like a normal point and click on an adventure. It all feels very fluid. Whenever you enter a room or area, you can press a button, highlight all interactive items in the room, walk around and interact with objects, and choose from several options. You can examine the object that provides the description, or you can work with objects such as switches. The other option is what I like very much. You can own certain objects and take them to another location, or use them with other items to unlock the puzzle and proceed.
As you progress through the game, you will find other orbs like yourself and will be given the opportunity to own them to gain more power. For example, one power allows you to move faster, and another power allows you to own and lift heavy objects.
Blackwood Manners are the starting point for Goetia, covering the entire area with strangely colored magical seals that block passage. Your main purpose is to find the abilities you need to be able to go through these seals and eventually move anywhere to solve your demise puzzles. You start with a mansion, but soon you’ll travel through the woods and come across an abandoned village nearby. At some point, the world becomes so strange that you can go back in time and see the actual photos in the amazing section. The entire gameplay experience is very original and intelligently implemented.
But the problem I’m having with this novel point and clicker is that some people may find it too difficult to care about. Puzzles in the second half of the game are very difficult to understand, which means that some people love puzzles and others cause frustration. It can be compared well with classics like Myst and Riven in terms of pace and how the game deals with the difficulties of the puzzle department. And this means going back and forth over and over as you roam the area, experimenting with different possibilities. I liked some kind of fast travel ability to help progress, but others may enjoy the old-fashioned style.
Visually, and we find Goetia presented in 2D with a nice art style that is atmospheric and exquisitely designed. The attention to color, documentation and furniture details is amazing. I mainly enjoyed the expression of the devil you meet and the moment the game became weird and headed into the picture itself. The soundtrack is well organized and works nicely with world design.
Goetia’s world and atmosphere Xbox I love you. It’s a very cerebral, clever, originally designed point-and-click adventure. The story and text are excellent throughout, and the puzzles are interesting and unique. But I think it can all be unnecessarily complicated, and you really have to think out of the box to find some solution. It decides if this will be a game for you. If you like challenges and are ready for old-fashioned points and clickers, fill your boots and get ready to enter the world of Goetia.
