Canard PC - numéro 378
Faute de Servo imbrique une excellente idée de départ, sur laquelle je vais éviter de m’étendre afin de préserver chez vous le plaisir de la découvrir, avec un mode de jeu astucieux. [...] une aventure drôle et passionnante.

Le fond et la forme, January 23, 2018
by Stephane F. (Nancy, France)
Un excellent jeu qui marie parfaitement le fond (Spoiler - click to show)(une histoire de zombi qui retrouve la mémoire, ou plutôt la mémoire de plusieurs de ses victimes, en mangeant leurs cerveaux) et la forme, puisqu'on agit en cliquant sur des cases de couleur, où chaque couleur correspond à une action qu'il faut retenir, à la manière du jeu de « Memory ». L'écriture et les dialogues sont pleins d'humour et d'esprit, les différents personnages bien caractérisés et attachants, malgré la brièveté de l'histoire.

An intriguing horror mystery with humor, January 20, 2018

I beta tested this game, so it's hard to be objective about it. I think I would give it a 4.5/5, so I rounded up.

Faute De Servo combines several game ideas that I love, including waking up in a lab-like environment with no clue what's going on (like Babel) and gaining powers by devouring random things (like the under-played Mangiasaur).

Much of the game consists of figuring out the action system, as well as the backstory of your location. I found this somewhat confusing (which is why I gave 4.5/5) but the presentation is so slick that it makes up for it.

There's also a good deal of humorous banter in the game, which I enjoyed. It is derivved from a cast of characters with distinct personalities and varying levels of intelligence.

This is definitely worth playing, both for the overall game concept and for the nifty implementation.

J'ai beaucoup apprécié cette IF, un condensé d'humour et d'originalité. La situation se décante petit à petit, et on se marre bien quand on comprend ce qui se passe. Bravo!

If you enjoyed Faute De Servo...
