Peregrin is a story puzzle game, combining myth, fantasy and sci-fi.
Peregrin’s story is a moving take on the struggle to overcome both personal and collective loss – beautifully realised in an epic mythical style.
Take control of Abi as she leaves her scavenger tribe to embark upon an epic journey into the wastelands of the divide. Mysterious monoliths and strange artefacts await her there, revealing the secrets of these fallen lands.
Peregrin's absorbing gameplay revolves around the use of Abi's arcane powers. Use them to take temporary control of the creatures you encounter - from simple animals to the divide's hostile guardians. Turn the unique abilities of each creature to your advantage in solving puzzles and surviving battles.
I might've just made that word up but I wouldn't know how else to describe it. Peregrin's story is set in a post-apocalyptic world after the planet, and humanity got destroyed by gods. The whole story is seeped in this intriguing and mysterious mythology. While the story is quite sparse, it gives just enough to keep you going. The gameplay however, is very minimal most puzzles are fairly straightforward and the combat encounters - which are also a kind of puzzle - are usually pretty easy as well.. What really brings Peregrin out is its art style. Beautifully drawn backgrounds and vistas makes the game a joy to look at. The ending also makes it really worth your while by revealing a whole different side to the story, that is both unexpected but ties everything together beautifully
Okay so after playing Peregrin I was very surprised and enjoyed the story as a whole but a few things have let the game down, it is a stunning game and the effects on the graphics help give it the effect of searching a world that has been lost to the destruction of mans mistakes. The story is well thought out and very interesting the only draw back is it is a little predictable you can predict the ending from around halfway through which is a bit of a shame. As for the game-play itself its well executed and can be a lot of fun especially with the combat having a slight tactical element to it the puzzles are well thought of that being said I would have liked them to be a little more difficult as I only really struggled with two or three puzzles during the game. Now my biggest gripe is the length of the game, I completed it within 3.5 hours and whilst the story, game-play and graphics are fantastic I cant help but feel the game is too short, it isn't helped by the ease of the puzzles as you can easily clear a chapter in under half an hour. All in all the game is amazing and is very well thought out and beautifully done the game play is fun and has some very interesting mechanics to it I would highly recommend playing this game just keep in mind that it is a short one.
Peregrin is a fictional storyline in a fusion with fiction, fantasy and science fiction genre that has a full audio narration and provide you with a great world of exploring. Play as Abi, as it separates from its tribes to begin a legendary journey. Gameplay is based on the mysterious powers of Abi.
I really loved this indie game, it looks lovely, the story is written well and it drove me to keep playing to find out how the story would develop. I found it hard to put down. Towards the end of the game, the difficulty spikes which was good to see as some of the puzzles are pretty hard. The art is great, really like the music and voice acting is very good too. I would really like to see more of this genre explored by the developer in the future.
Peregrin is a Steam Greenlight game that puzzle fans should try. It is an interesting title with quite a unique setting. I must say I really dig the isometric view, there is nothing that says more "classic" than that. The game also has some stealth elements that can remind of good old Commandos series with the eye sight view. Rather cheap and worth checking out. Give it a go.
