Blackout (Complete) – It’s Like Oregon Trail in a Post-Apocalyptic World

Game Review

Blackout is an old-school narrative survival game that’ll instantly remind you of Oregon Trail back in elementary school.

You guide a group of survivors through a known, but dangerous route with a ton of hazards. The events are scripted though, so ti’s pretty much the same game every time. but this lets you learn from your past mistakes for your second venture. Because chances are you ain’t gonna make much progress the first time around! It’s pretty difficult when you play it at first because the logic is nothing but logical. You have to think in a different way in order to progress- but I don’t want to spoil it too much.

The game takes place in an apocalyptic world where an EMP wave-like thing wiped out all electronics. Survivors need to look for resources and steal from other people in order to survive the world. It’s like a world without electronics- everything’s gone to shambled.

You control a small group of survivors where you need to try to guide them towards lights int eh sky, which may be a sign of salvation. Each one is unique in needs and status that you’ll have to learn how to manage well in order to maintain their state.

Blackout is far from being complete. It currently offers a very short playtime of about 12 minutes and only covers the beginning of the game. You’ll encounter many different hazards and will be forced to make decisions in order to progress. Try it out if you like games like Oregon Trail. It’s a new take on it.

I play the newest to the crappiest indie games and filter them for the rest of the crew.

In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?

Indie devs: the last honest game creators.
