Games Review: Montague’s Mount

An Irish-made game is rare, but even rarer is an Irish-made game that looks as impressive as Montague’s Mount is shaping up to be.

An Irish-made game is rare, but even rarer is an Irish-made game that looks as impressive as Montague’s Mount is shaping up to be.

The game is still in development, but Polypusher Studios in Donegal promises “a first person psychological roller-coaster ride through isolation, desolation and one man’s tortured mind all set against the bleakness of an isolated Irish island”. As a fisherman washed up on a remote island, you will explore and interact with the environment to find a way home, but as is always the case with a psychological horror, there’s something more sinister afoot.

The preview footage I saw showed the main character waking up on the beach, then restoring power to a set of buildings through one of the games first puzzles. Every object on the island can be picked up and manipulated, which bodes well for clever puzzling throughout. See this weeks Tipperary Star for full review.
