E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is a first person role-playing shooter set in a strange cyberpunk world.
The influence of Deus X is clear in this indie game, which combines action with a great deal of player choice. It also has conspiracies and a dark tone, but the comparisons don't go much further.
Your character is a member of 'Secreta Secretorum'; samurai monks with advanced technology, cybernetics and psyonics. Humanity is threatened by strange forces that are turning civilizations against each other. When the game starts, you are thrown into this scenario, and have to work out the rest for yourself.
E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is one of the toughest games to get into you will play. The menus and interfaces are a mess, while there are some unusual choices with the mouse and keyboard control layout. The story is complex, and not very well explained. There is lots of detail, but the broad points about what's going on are missing.
E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy does feature tutorials, but they are in videos you have to watch, not in-game, as players are used to today. This is a game for people with patience, and the desire to understand a confusing, yet detailed world. For the rest of us, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy may be too complicated.
On the plus side, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is atmospheric, and it's strange setting and story make it pretty unique. It's a shame that it's so inaccessible.
This demo will be downloaded via the Steam app, which is free to install and use.
