If you are one of the people that prefer free to play, single player games with awesome characters, astonishing music and backgrounds to compliment it, then you might have heard of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. For its heartwarming story of a boy using his imagination to make an ordinary day, extraordinary, this game has earned a lot of praises.
Developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Square Enix, this mini-game of sorts does not hold back on the action, excitement, and of course, the tears.
Follow Chris Erikson and his Father Charles Erikson as they enjoy a cold winter day together in their small town home.
If you are looking for an adventure game with great graphics, then this is one of them. The characters and your interactions with the environment change fantastically. Even the small items are very detailed. Sporting voice-overs and facial features that match the feelings of the characters in the game, you can feel all their emotions including doubt, anger or sadness. Although the game is used as a promotion tool for the upcoming Life is Strange 2, it still stood out as one of the most memorable free to play games out in the market.
The story is about Chris Eriksen, a young boy who has an impressive imagination and creates a superhero alter ego named Captain Spirit. He then goes ahead and does superhero deeds like cook breakfast for his father, clean dirty laundry, and ultimately defeat Mantroid and his despicable henchman. The story transitions from Chris to Captain Spirit as he deals with the problems at home and problems of a superhero.
Although the story and music were amazing, I had a few problems with it. The fact that I did not know about Life is Strange might be the cause of the confusion I felt when I saw he was part of the universe. But aside from that, all I could think of was how great it felt playing the game and how I used to do cringy stuff as well. The game hits you with nostalgia complimented by music that could without a doubt yank you away from this world and into theirs if you close your eyes long enough.
This game was great at every turn. From the starting fight scenes to the next battles that became more and more vivid, the game will even take you to another planet for your final confrontation with your arch nemesis.
Aside from that, you can also feel for Chris as he goes about completing his costume and talking about his mother along the way. But don’t let that get to you, the game’s storyline is one of the best.
If you are a general sucker for “Feel Good” games that pull at your hearts, then The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is definitely one of the best. I would give this an 8/10 rate for its characters, high-quality graphics, voice-overs, storyline, and music. The only problem I had was that the game doesn’t have a sequel and that it was too short for me. I wasn’t ready to let Chris go yet. Seriously, I wanted to be part of his life to find out what happens to him in the future.
Generally, I would like to have Chris be a part of the main characters in the Life is Strange 2 game but I don’t think that will be happening any time soon.
