Fatale: Exploring Salome review

The attraction? John the Baptist, nude ladies and oddness

Pros

  • Beautifully created still-life scenes
  • Haunting tone
  • Continually interesting and surprising

Cons

  • Clunky first-person view
  • Pretty pretentious
  • Really short

From the weird-merchants behind The Path comes the game of Salome – the princess who asked Herod for John the Baptist’s head. It begins in clunky first-person, with you in a dungeon with nothing to do but be tormented by randomly appearing snippets from Oscar Wilde’s play Salome.

Then, after a terrifying demise, you’re manoeuvring through the 3D space above your prison – extinguishing a series of flames with holy ghost power and admiring beautifully created still-life scenes of nudey women. Your eyes will roll, high and often, at Fatale’s clever-clever pretensions and brevity – but it’s undeniably an interesting, surprising and oddly haunting experience.
