Industria Review (PlayStation 5)

Our Industria Review has us playing this first-person shooter that takes us from East Berlin into a parallel reality, shortly before the end of the Cold War. On the search for a missing work colleague, we try and decipher the dark past in a mysterious parallel dimension. On the evening of the fall of the Berlin wall, a young woman plunges headlong into a parallel dimension to find her missing work colleague who has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. While the checkpoints in East Berlin are still being overrun by crowds of people, Nora escapes from this world, into unknown layers of time and into an unknown fate.

A surprisingly good story-based adventure game, You are looking to find Walter in Germany in 1989 and all is not as it seems. Before you know it the world is flipped upside down and you start jumping around the world at different points in time. All the while you get to experience this adventure where you are all but alone or so you think, tensions run high and wits are needed as you encounter these out-of-this-world monsters. I found the first ten odd minutes a bit slow as I learned what the game was offering and how it doesn’t actually help with guidance or any clues on where to go. I did end up enjoying the game and whilst I could accuse it of being a bit short, it was the right length for the story that’s been told. Industria is a good story with a beautiful atmospheric world full of puzzles and danger.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
