Set in the fictional open world Eden, NVYVE Studios’ title P.A.M.E.L.A. is much more than one would expect from such a small team. Not only is the world extremely well detailed, everything gives a story for players to explore as they adventure through Eden, exploring and hopefully uncovering what went wrong.

Just as one would hope from a game with such a highly detailed atmosphere, Eden is an immaculately detailed dystopian world for players to explore. From its malls to its courtyards and residential condos P.A.M.E.L.A.‘s open world is unlike anything players have seen in many of today’s dystopian games. Taking time to appreciate the small designs is already tough when trying to avoid the enemies that want to eat your face, but if you take time to explore and avoid your enemies, Eden is a beautiful, beautiful place.

The beauty itself shows more than one could imagine as you get underway. With a minimalistic HUD that only appears when your characters arm lifts, it’s hard not to imagine the choices that the team made in order to bring this world to life and to give players a better sense of immersion. Since this game’s sole intent is to draw players in, the designed approach does a great job, especially in the dim hallways often lit by the flash of a players weapons or the activation of their armband.

Luckily, many of the game’s design choices work as the designers intended. They don’t take away from the experience and actually help drive the level of immersion players would expect from a game like P.A.M.E.L.A., which again, offers a very unique and immersive experience due to the design choices made.
