Would you ever pay 1.949,09€ for a game? Thanks to ProX, who published his own game, The Hidden and Unknown, which is now available on Steam.
The author intentionally reduced the playtime to less than two hours in order to allow anyone who purchases it and wants to complete it to ask for a refund (Steam guarantees refunds under two hours of play, without the player having to justify them).
According to the author, the price would reflect the value of the game to him, according to The Gamer: "I don't want to cause any financial difficulties. I just paid the price that I thought was right for me, which is my right." It's quite possible, of course.
The Hidden and Unknown, as viewed by PC Gamer's Tyler Wilde test, might be an almost autobiographical visual novel, if it weren't for some "fantastic" content, but it's the story that makes the whole operation clear. In fact, a testosterone imbalance is described, which is making Western men more male. Humanity is on the verge of ruin.
However, the game continues by introducing an artificial intelligence capable of traveling through time and balancing the masculine energies (reason) and the feminine (feelings), to then begin to tell a certain Brian.
The game is composed of a series of personal stories from the life of the aforementioned Brian, which is likely to be drawn from the author's life, who during the adventure transforms into a hypertestosteronic male who cannot be controlled by his ex-girlfriend (in the bottom reads The Art of War by Sun Tzu, so he's a real man) and that he overcomes his depression by sleeping well and exercising regularly.
