DescriptionBide is a 3rd person narrative-driven action-adventure puzzle game.
The game starts with the player being transported to their new position, working to maintain a facility that re-processes scrap material as part of the war effort.
Through exploration, puzzles, and clues found throughout their new dwelling, they begin to unravel the bleak history of the facility and the reality of their role in the conflict.
Gameplay consists largely of puzzles that correspond to the physical actions the character is carrying out. These puzzles can be cryptic, but the solutions are intuitive and subtle hints to their meaning and how to complete them are spread throughout the narrative. Completing these tasks, while managing some survival-esque dynamics, advances the player through the story. By completing more advanced puzzles, or finding ingenious solutions, the player can open up additional narrative pathways.
Some aspects of the gameplay at first seem unclear, as the player is cast into the role of an alienated and lonely war-time employee. As the game progresses, the impact of the players' actions on the surroundings and the storyline start to unravel.
