Insurmountable is a roguelike with an exploration adventure game and survival elements. The game was developed by an independent German studio ByteRockers' Games.
In Insurmountable we play the role of a mountain climber who has to reach the top of three increasingly higher and more difficult peaks, conquering them one by one. The authors give us three characters differentiated by their skills and the story that led them to this place.
In Insurmountable we observe the action from third person perspective (TPP). Before setting off, we have to take a look at the mountain we are going to climb and determine the optimal route to its top. What complicates matters is that if we die on the way, we have no choice but to start the expedition all over again. As the peaks are procedurally generated, each climb looks different and requires facing different challenges.
During the journey we have to lead the hero through fields of ice blocks and huge stones or overcome vertical rock walls. As if that wasn't enough, along the way the weather and the merciless passage of time may turn out to be not very kind to him (the game features variable weather conditions and a daily cycle), and even wild, aggressive and hungry animals. In addition, death on the route can bring the protagonist both lack of oxygen, hypothermia, fatigue or hunger or thirst (so you must constantly pay attention to the values of these factors), as well as a fall from a great height. In addition, during the climbing we take part in hundreds of random events, and although only some of them are connected with danger, we have to make decisions carefully, so as not to make a choice that in the long run will bring us problems.
Fortunately, in the high mountains not everything wants to kill us. Suffice it to say that along the way we can find remnants of previous expeditions, in which we often find useful equipment. In addition, as we progress, we develop our character and unlock new skills that make climbing easier.
Graphics of Insurmountable looks decent. Various mountain landscapes can be liked most of all, and the view from the top usually rewards us the hardships of climbing (unless we decide to attack the mountain during a snow storm...).
