Made in the abyss It is a game consisting of two stories: “Hello Abyss” mode and “Deep in Abyss” mode. The former is a retelling of the first manga arc and introduces the characters, world, and mechanics found in the game while the latter is an entirely original story. The main issue here is that “Hello Abyss”, despite being its own story, is really a slow-going 5-hour tutorial that does not prepare players for success in the “Deep in Abyss” mode. The reason for this is that although there are systems for searching for food, weapon durability, and crafting, players can ignore most of them and complete the first story. Even worse, in order to get the intended experience, players must turn on the “Deep in Abyss” mode which only unlocks after completing “Hello Abyss”.

“Deep Abyss” is the place Made in the abyss It really shines, although it’s almost like learning to play the game again. Unlike “Hello Abyss”, this mode is harsh and throws a lot at the player which not only helps him feel more involved, but also makes the players interact with him Made in the abyssDifferent systems in such a way that they feel necessary and interconnected. It also has a fully original storytelling feature which gives it the freedom to explore the characters and the world without having to hit certain beats of the manga. One mechanism that can really shine is the Abyss Curse, which is a state effect that builds up as players ascend, but each layer of the Abyss causes a different curse. Unlike “Hello Abyss”, Curse of the Abyss really affects how the game is played while the effects are active and force players to be creative and energetic to survive.

Made in the Abyss: A Binary Star Falls into the Dark It’s a good game with poor pace and an inability to blend game mechanics with the story it came from. If only this game was a “Deep in Abyss” mode, it would be a great survival and action game with elements of RPG mechanics and even some horror mixed in. However, the discrepancy between the game modes in both gameplay and presentation is shocking and leaves one wondering why “Hello Abyss” should be a requirement to get into what looks like the “actual game”.
