I've played through the beta for about an hour, and I have to say I really enjoy it. It's eerie, bizarre, and totally dark. I kind of like this aspect, though, because the inability to see much heightens the intensity. The music is excellent yet again, and the atmosphere is top notch. The fights in Unloved II seemed more toned down that those of Unloved, but they're still challenging (I've died multiple times).
The visuals are great, the the textures used give off a sense of something from, like, the late 1800's/early 1900's. But there's a hellish, other-worldy twist, which makes it all very "Unloved." I liked the use of mirrors as gateways to other parts of the WAD--I've always foud that mirrors could be a used as a creepy element in this very manner.
You toned the difficulty down a bit from the first Unloved, but it still manages to very challenging and chilling (just less slaughtery).
For the rest, I'm enclosing them in a spoiler's tag so that I don't ruin things for others.
I can't say I found anything bad about the beta. I wish it were longer...I'm not done with it yet, but I know it will pretty much leave me with a cliffhanger, and that's gonna suck--I want to see the rest! But, I couldn't wait for the full release because I've been excited about this WAD for months, so...yeah.
By the way, you wouldn't happen to have the tracks you used for Unloved II (and Unloved)? Or, maybe, tell me what the names of them are? I really like the music of the Unloved duo, and I kinda want to get my hands on it, but I don't know the tracks' names. Could you please let me know? I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
