Potentia is an action adventure game with stealth elements, which takes us to a post-apocalyptic world. This is the debut work of the indie Turkish studio Willy Pumpkin, and only four people worked on it.

Plot

Potentia takes us to a world where the Cold War, which lasted for years, has finally come to an end. The joy of the peace announced by the superpowers did not last long, however, because on the night when people took to the streets to celebrate, an attack with an unknown energy weapon took place. While buildings remained untouched and animals and plants remained alive, most people mysteriously disappeared. Those who managed to survive have either lost their minds or turned into ruthless savages who will stop at nothing to survive another day. The game's main character is Victor, who, together with his wife Anna, finds himself in the middle of this chaos.

Mechanics

In Potentia, the action is shown from a third person perspective (TPP). We perform tasks which push the plot forward and travel through various locations; among the latter we can find a deserted city, over which nature has started to take control (streets are overgrown with grass and lush trees have grown between buildings), as well as picturesque landscapes. As we explore them, we must constantly look around for useful items. In addition, you need to be constantly on guard, as enemies may be lurking around every corner.

The way Victor deals with his adversaries is up to you. Nothing stops him sneaking around behind their backs or silently taking them out with a crowbar or bow. However, if we have enough ammunition (and the right firearms, of course), we may as well engage in open fire and shoot at enemies with a rifle or pistol. The second approach, however, has significant disadvantages, as bullets are limited here, and wounds must be healed with first aid kits, which are also rare.

Technical aspects

Potentia has a high-quality graphic design. The varied and richly detailed location designs are particularly pleasing (especially considering that the game was created by a team of just four people)
