About A Plague Tale: Innocence

About this game

Developed by Asobo Studio and published by Focus Entertainment.

Experience a heavy story about war, family, and rats in this fantastic action-adventure title! You'll follow the grim tale of Amicia and her little brother Hugo as they live through the darkest hours of history.

Hundred Years War

The story is set in the first phase of the war, and the siblings — Amicia and Hugo — are being hunted by the Inquisition soldiers. Unfortunately for them, that's not the only worry they've got, as the city is being swarmed by rats.

Too Many!

Perhaps worse than the soldiers are the hungry, angry rodents that appear seemingly from every nook and cranny. Distract them, use fire to scare them, or even trick the rats into attacking the soldiers and kill two birds with one stone!

Hone Your Skills

Learn and perfect your magical abilities so that you may be safer as you traverse the Black Death-ridden streets. Use fire, sleep enemies, turn off lights, and manipulate enemies — both rats and soldiers alike! — among many other abilities you will gain throughout your journey!

Steam Deck

A Plague Tale: Innocence is verified on the Steam Deck, meaning you'll be able to take this gripping story everywhere you go!

Considering the small dev team that worked on this game before its massive success and sequel; it's truly amazing how awesome this game is. The voice acting, characters, story, set pieces, graphics, and music are all top notch. The game-play can be something that some people love and others hate. It requires you to have a lot of patience, a lot of levels have you distracting enemies and waiting for the A.I to act surprised as a rock is thrown from right beside him and he doesn't realise and then goes to check out the noise of the rock.

Fish nor fowl, missed chances and nothing truly captivating

I know everyone is raving enthusiastic about this game, but after playing like 15 hours I'm not. It's well crafted, and the landscape is beautiful. However, the game doesn't really do anything very well in my opinion. It fails as a stealth/action game (too linear), it fails as a storytelling game (story becomes boring, kids running around and trying to survive soldiers and rats, with some encounters but nothing captivating), it fails in truly special atmosphere (yes, rats and plague and stuff which in the beginning is nice but quickly gets boring too, there's no evolution), it fails in a truly heartwarming experience (the main character is a teen that's not all that super friendly with the boy, she's regularly annoyed and annoying, like "do this", "do that", "stop doing this", "hurry up" - which is all kind of realistic because she's just a teen but it doesn't give me a warm feeling). So in the end it does a bit of many things but none of them really well. There's like a potential to be outstanding in various of these fields, but the game doesn't deliver. Stopped playing and never looked back.

The deep emotions between siblings

This is an adventurous puzzle-solving game based on submerged behavior and supplemented by action. The plot is not bad, it's worth playing.

Single player, no micro transactions, great visuals, rats, interesting story - all check. The only downside is that stealth sections can get a bit tedious, but it's a must play.

Its an interesting stealth game. With interesting mechanics. You're a girl who has to protect her little brother from a rat plague but also an Inquisition. The game has some good moments. But also some dull moments. But the game is not generic atleast. So credit to it.

Highly recommended, and I can’t wait for the sequel.

The graphics are superb with stunningly beautiful and grotesque scenery and lots of detail on the characters and in the world. Through iconic scenes it portrays the innocence of childhood and the horrors of plague with enough historical accuracy and magic to keep it entertaining. There’s good use of music to provide drama and suspense during the stealth sequences and natural sounds during the exploration/calm areas, but the loot glint and constant crafting do spoil things a bit. The game is very linear and too restrictive in some areas, with very dumb AI, a simplistic combat system and overly scripted sequences, but the mechanics are solid and do provide some challenge. The story is interesting and moves along at a good pace with a great cast of characters – the “orphans” show a real bond and companionship as they progress through their tale, although they do seem to be a bit too accepting of everything that’s going on around them. The villains are menacing and a bit one dimensional, but serve their purpose and the voice acting is good, although could have been better for some characters.

A Plague Tale: Innocence Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
A 'hidden gem' of 2019 and a Steam game that's worthy of your time. A Plague Tale: Innocence is a dark adventure that focuses on stealth and successfully creates a fearful, tense atmosphere for the player. The vulnerability of the protagonist Amicia and her young brother Hugo means that every encounter is a challenge, and one that needs a well-thought plan in order to progress. From lethal takedowns with knives and throwing acid-like cocktails to leading thousands of rats in the direction of some unsuspecting guards - A Plague Tale: Innocence delivers a captivating experience from a narrative and gameplay perspective.
