The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Walkthrough

1st mission Traps
You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan’s home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only local murder worth looking into.

Inspired by the weird fiction (and other tales of the macabre) from the early twentieth century, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter aims to significantly evolve immersive storytelling in games. While it features a private detective and quite a few mental challenges, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is not an especially puzzle-ridden game. Our focus is on atmosphere, mood, and the essential humanity of our characters.

Still, the discoveries won’t happen on their own, or without your help. Using both Paul’s supernatural skill of being able to communicate with the dead, and your own powers of observation, you will discover the mystery behind a trail of corpses, the roots of a dark ancient force lurking in Red Creek Valley, and the fate of a missing boy

Welcome to the The Vanishing of Ethan Carter walkthrough!

Karak will be your voice-over commentator showing you around the game’s starting areas.

Let’s begin with the case of the dead guy with chopped off legs by the train tracks. Get there by making your way across the bridge. And be sure to avoid all the traps in the forest, in case you were wondering why in your visions the forest ground is littered with bones and skulls!
Poor Ethan, even his grandpa Ed succumbs to the darkness of the so-called Sleeper and sends him running for his life into his home town called Red Creek Valley.

But before you get there, explore the forest near the town to find more of Ethan’s freaky stories. One particularly vivid story involves a space capsule.

Oh and to be perfectly clear, at this point I’m just making up Chapter names (LOL) to get all chapters to you with maximum clarity. So if you’re looking for a visualize puzzle solution, you’ll be able to tell where in the game each Chapter takes place.

Darksiders and the end of days Apocalypse

darksiders-war

Darksiders is an Apocalyptic hack and slash adventure from Vigil Games set upon an Earth being destroyed by the final battle between Angels and Demons.

We take on the role of War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to be set loose at the End of Days to judge the wicked – Angels and Demons alike. War is a mystical character that has an immense set of powers which can be combined in order to create the ultimate destructive force. Inexplicably, he appears alone and before the required Seven Seals are broken, and is accused by the Charred Council of actually starting the Apocalypse. Protesting his innocence, War loses most of his powers and is sent out to find out what really happened.

War’s main mission in Darksiders is to determine how only he was summoned without his Horsemen brothers and without the Seven Seals being broken, while also fighting through the remaining forces on Earth. The plot thickens, and the quests ultimately lead you to a Black Tower where you need to defeat the unknown Destroyer who holds all the answers.

darksiders-finishing-move

The whole Darksiders experience relies on killing enemies, creating attack combos and exploring the game world in order to find valuable items. While it might not sound like much at first, Darksiders successfully incorporates all the elements that made games such as Devil May Cry or God of War popular. When you damage an enemy enough, you will receive a QTE (Quick Time Event) option for a special finishing move using some impressive combos. While this mechanic might get boring after a while, its inclusion help diversify the game.

At its core, Darksiders is a single player action-adventure game with lots of platforming elements that is seamlessly integrated into the story, and only by mastering it you will be able to reach the areas where all the secrets are hidden. These help you gain experience points or, if you are lucky enough, you can get skill points. By gathering the in-game items you can sell them for a currency which can then be used to purchase upgrades so you become even more powerful.

darksiders-chaos-form

You start with the mighty sword Chaoseater and as you play you will also unlock the deadly Scythe and the Tremor Gauntlet. Each has impressive combos you can unlock for major mayhem. Collecting souls from the dead also allow you to unlock certain Wrath powers to enhance your offense or defense. However the biggest power of all is when War can transform into Chaos Form, similar to the fiery Balrog in The Lords of the Rings, and wreak great havoc for a limited time. The bosses in Darksiders add a lot of variety to the game because they do bring character and charisma, since each one of them is very well designed and requires certain strategies to overcome.

darksiders-character

From a graphical standpoint the game really shines, as it truly brings you a beautiful story in high definition. The locations look stunning, War is cleverly designed and the models are great. Animations are more than fluid, which in the end create a visual package that appeals to a lot of platform gamers. We encountered some small texture problems from time to time, especially when it came to climbing, but other than that the graphics in Darksiders are solid and contribute tremendously in creating a gritty atmosphere for an Apocalypse game.

darksiders-gear

The soundtrack is fast paced and well suited to the action-packed game play. The voices in the game are also solid and enhance the overall value of both the game and its story. Sounds by themselves are quite realistic overall, and that’s really helpful when it comes to adding value to the game.

darksiders-weapons-forge

In conclusion, Darksiders is a game that successfully immerses us into a world of chaos and conflicts. War is a great character and the story is exciting even if a bit over the top. This game is an action-adventure gem, and we truly recommend you to give it a try right now.
