Here is our review of Lostwood Games’ debut game, Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade. Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade is a kind of quest/adventure/interactive fiction/visual novel/text RPG game. The story takes place in a dark fantasy world mixed with cyberpunk and alien technologies. Five noble families rule the country under the suzerainty of Plague King – the supernatural, other-world creature who has an ability to plague the country with the terrible disease called Decade… The story begins at the first day of the Decade and ends at the last day. The way HOW it ends depends on player.
Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade’s graphics were impressive for being developed by an indie studio. The game had a hand drawn feel to it, with players almost interacting inside a storybook that was sketched by someone. Animations were fluid, and the artwork easily conveyed emotions of either happiness or sadness when necessary for the story. Overall, the graphics help the player feel as if they are actually participating in the story as Oliver Vertran, and they deserve a 4 / 5.
There is only so much sound that can be added to an interactive text RPG game, but Lostwood Games did a good job of adding sounds based on action along with music that matches the mood of the game during certain situations. Overall, the score for sound is a 3.5 / 5.
When players start the game, they aren’t really given any direction as to which button does what or even what to do. However, once players become accustomed to the controls, which are quite simple, then the game is a fluid and enjoyable experience. Players can customize their controls when the game is opened in order to suit their respective needs. Overall, we gave the controls a 3.5 / 5.
As written in the introduction, Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade is a combination of a text, interactive story, RPG, and adventure game. All of these elements combine to make for great gameplay for the player. As with most games that share these characteristics, players explore the environment by clicking various items and make tough decisions that will affect the outcome of the game. We awarded the gameplay a 4 / 5.
Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade has a suspenseful and entertaining storyline. This is needed, as the game is an interactive story itself. Without giving away any spoilers, players are put in to positions that can affect themselves and everybody around them, creating a different story every time the game is played. Players will become interested in the actual story of the game, and will want to know what happens next. This great storyline deserves a 4.5 / 5.
