The best horror games are those that mix impossible things, to challenge and entertain the audience, with slightly possible scenarios capable of triggering our deepest fears. Dolmen is one of these games. It is a soul-like action RPG considered challenging even for experienced players, but with a sci-fi story based on the premise that humans will modify themselves, both genetically and with augmentations, to be more fit. to colonize space. Zoan Corp, one of the companies exploring space, hired modified humans called Drillers to colonize Revion Prime. Things went wrong, as they always do in a good horror game, and Zoan Corp woke the player up to protect the company’s interests and investment, showing no remorse for what happened to the deceased employees.
As the story unfolds, the player becomes aware of the greedy details that took place on Revion Prime, the evolution of Dolmen crystals, and their interdimensional properties. After all, evil, resentment, and arrogance can be found in all multiverses.
On game design, there are dozens of melee and ranged weapons that can be crafted from different materials to alter their stats. There are armors to power up three different types of technologies, enhancing the character’s combat abilities, an elemental system that can be exploited to defeat enemies more easily, attributes, and much more. Gathering materials and crafting better equipment may be the best strategy for those unfamiliar with the rough ordeal a soul game can be, but even with a full team, late enemies of Dolmen can eliminate a player who has lowered his guard. For the strong-minded who like to challenge bosses multiple times, the game offers a respawn feature, which provides additional rewards for crafting boss weapons. That option can also be used with multiplayer, giving rewards to everyone who joins the battle.
Overall, the environment and level design try to keep the player’s senses on their toes, contributing to the sci-fi horror feel, as there are only a few safe spots in the adventure and the combat uses nothing less than menacing creatures throughout. time. After 12 or more hours of gameplay, we experience a good horror vibe and the thrill of trying to get back to the timeline where we didn’t die. It takes some time to master all the mechanics, like the elemental system and the new “energy mode”, but the challenge is part of the fun when it comes to souls.
