Brash Games (Feb 11, 2017)
CAYNE is a bright spot in the world of modern adventure games. It capitalizes on the good while avoiding the worst and most frustrating tropes of the point and click genre. The story is fleshed out and fulfilling, with some great writing throughout. The production quality is out of sight for a free game and even though it’s only going to last you two or three hours, the voice-acting alone is well worth the time. If you’ve got the stomach to handle the gore, and you’re looking for a really, disturbingly good sci-fi horror experience, CAYNE is a great freebie to snatch up!

Cayne è un'avventura punta e clicca che consigliamo ad ogni appassionato di enigmi e di atmosfere forti. Il viaggio di Hadley, costretta ad assistere ad esperimenti crudeli ed ignominiosi, trasuda follia da tutti i pori: tra stanze che nascondono creature deformi e costrette a vivere una misera esistenza, laboratori ammantati da composti organici cancerosi e immondi templi dedicati all'umana insania, gli amanti dell'orrore più atroce e psicologico troveranno materiale con cui passare notti insonni. Bisognerà passare sopra a piccole ruvidità nelle meccaniche di gioco, a qualche enigma poco logico e anche a piccole sbavature tecniche, ma i passi in avanti fatti dai ragazzi sudaficani sono tanti e tangibili. Fatelo vostro se avete provato e apprezzato Stasis, se non siete stati così fortunati da giocare la prima avventura di The Brotherhood potreste rimediare partendo proprio da qui, dopotutto per vivere la storia di Cayne non è necessario nessun obolo.

The Game Hoard (Oct 18, 2018)
While being a free game to generate interest in paid titles may raise some warning flags, Cayne justifies its existence with how much effort went into constructing a small but solid narrative helped along by gory imagery that does a good job of creating a disturbing atmosphere. Playability holds things back a bit thanks to slow movement and some obtuse puzzle solutions, but there are some more cleverly designed puzzles to carry the game forward as well as the gradual reveal of the horrific facility’s history and purpose to motivate the player to press on. Cayne’s visual polish for its disturbing sights and puzzles that utilize reincorporation well makes it feel like a complete title that supplements Stasis rather than simply advertises it.

Cayne is a fairly short adventure. However, it's also completely free, so anyone who can afford to spend the time should give it a look. The puzzles can be overly obtuse and annoying, but the game delivers in most other respects. The art direction is disturbingly good. It's memorable, perhaps a bit too memorable. One might find themselves suffering a sleepless night after witnessing everything that occurs in this game. That's a credit to the art direction. Although, one has to wonder how they came up with some of this stuff. Well… Some questions are probably better left unanswered.

Ultimately, CAYNE could perhaps have done a bit more to distinguish itself from its predecessor, but nonetheless it's an intelligent, beautiful and atmospheric slice of sci-fi horror. A few head-scratching puzzles and a bit too much walking is a small price to pay for an experience that'll leave you with much to think about, and quite possibly waking up at night in a cold sweat. The fact that it’s the only price you’ll need to pay just makes this offering all the more remarkable. Even if you haven't played STASIS, it's well worth checking out, raising the bar for the quality of freeware games and putting even a lot of commercial games to shame.
