It’s not a gung-ho shooter, combat is slower and more tactical, with all out gun-fights best being avoided. There’s a great atmosphere in the game, with a real sense of tension and danger throughout. It’s an intriguing game, that will keep you wondering (and dreading) what will happen next.
The real charm of this game is that it’s clearly the vision of one single person. While rough around the edges in a way that you don’t ever see in mainstream gaming, you’re going to ultimately get a more personal, interesting experience.
The Last Dogma is a satirical, story-driven first person adventure game with shooter and action elements.
Set in an alternate reality where US actively campaigns for world domination, you play as Sebastian Arise, an ATF special agent tasked with the tracking and eradication of local firearms dealers. A straightforward mission turns sour, thrusting you into the world of cannibalistic Christian cult known as “Holy Intentions”. Entwined in a web of intrigues between emotion-feeding daemons, Sebastian must keep his senses sharp as he travels back in 1366 A.D. to stop the things he shouldn’t stop.
