Veritas is a game of mystery and discovery from Glitch Games, creators of the Forever Lost trilogy, that poses the question; what is truth, and does it even matter?
Having volunteered to take part in a study conducted by Veritas Industries, you now find yourself waking up in a small room with no memory of what happened the day before.
The last thing you remember is signing on the dotted line and following some nice people wearing white coats, but they couldn’t have been lying to you could they? They were doctors for goodness sake...
In the full compact narrative puzzle game, you'll:
Explore a dark and foreboding world full of lies and mysteries. You'll need to explore the entire facility to work out what happened and how you can escape.
Take photos of everything you find using the Glitch Camera. Be they posters, clues, walls, or disturbing blood stains - and use them later to help solve puzzles and piece together the mystery.
Solve lots of puzzles, ranging from inventory based item puzzles all the way to pun-based conundrums. All intricately designed to move the story along, you'll find no pointless filler here - just regular purpose made filler.
Be entranced by the beautiful soundtrack composed by Richard J. Moir. It's so good you won't mind listening to it, on repeat, forever, while you're trapped.
Use the Glitch Camera to:
Take photos of everything you find. Be they posters, clues, walls, or disturbing blood stains.
Write notes on them like a real detective. Use less paper, kill fewer trees, save the planet!
Use your notes to solve puzzles. Pop multiple photos out so that you can look at them at the same time.
great game, liked the puzzles (clever but not so "clever" i was cursing at the devs like most other adventure games). hint system was great (except for the red/gold/white wires puzzle which just said to figure out the wires with the locker buttons, i knew that part but was getting befuddled). most of the puzzles are great and would make a nice real life escape room.
the only issue was that my mouse worked fine with the default set up. then when i went to the game again the pointer disappeared. eventually i needed to change my mouse pointer to the base scheme? maybe? or the part where i tried compatibility mode? or one of the dpi settings options? anyway i had to spend like half an hour to get my mouse pointer to show up and not sure what solved it.
I seem to be having a bug where I can't exit the computer terminals. I can perform all the required actions on the Veritas Labs' terminals, can take a photo or observe my inventory, but the backspace key isn't working. I end up having to reset my save and play the game over again, carefully avoiding clicking on any computer terminals. Any suggestions, or should I just ignore the computers?
The worst optimized game I've seen on here. Literally just bought all new parts for my system last week, running a 2060, Ryzen 7 3700X, 32 gigs of low latency RAM, and this POINT AND CLICK game drops to sub-10 FPS when moving my mouse, even in the menu. In fact, if I move it fast enough, the entire game stops moving until I stop moving the mouse.
It recovers faster now so it is playable at least, but moving my mouse still slows it down to 1 FPS until I stop.
If there's any sort of log file or if a screen recording or something would help I'm down to provide it It's as if the game sees the mouse moving and devotes the entirety of its resources to that and nothing else
