Everything You Need to Know About Remnant Records
Sometimes, people who have suffered tragic deaths or lives can remain trapped in this mortal world. They can become a force of hatred and only desire for others to experience the same fate as they did. In Remnant Records, you encounter numerous spirits from the underworld and try to end their suffering by solving their mysteries.
It is only those who can understand them that can make them free. With the story focused more on ghosts’ backstory, Remnant Records definitely makes a difference in the ghost-hunting genre.
Understanding a spirit is the first step to exorcising it. Locate the clues left behind by searching the area: newspaper clippings, diaries, and any unusual objects. To understand the spirit, you need to collect as many items as possible. You can play cooperatively with as many as three friends (or strangers) and use in-game proximity voice chat. Ghosts have special abilities that are only available in multiplayer. With your best friends, you can have hours of investigation and tension.
Remnant Record is not like other Ghost Hunting Genre games as I said before. Remnant Records requires you to look at context clues surrounding the location in order to identify the circumstances that led to the haunting. What happened to the victim? How did they die, and what was their daily life like in the days before this? This will help you find the right evidence for exorcising.
There are currently three maps, four ghosts, five difficulties, 11 special conditions, custom difficulties and a few other features. The game is already a great foundation and thrives on all the random variables that are available, allowing for unique experiences and new stories with each mission.
Because of the random nature and missions, Remnant Records has high replayability. However, I believe the game will shine even more when there are more items, notes, and storytelling elements added over time.
Four different roles are available to every player and each can have a huge impact on the mission.
The best flashlight is available to the electrician. They can also detect the fusebox in the dark, and turn it on or off quicker.
The cartomancer has a set of mystical talismans.
The musclehead is here for the physical work. They can smash down doors or be able to use their strength when confronted with the ghost.
Mediums have a closer relationship to the dead. Sometimes they can communicate with the dead and hear, feel, or see things that are not obvious to others.
By leveling up, learn and unlock many features such as customizable difficulty levels or modifiers that will make each game an entirely new experience. You can set the difficulty level of the ghost or the investigation individually to make the game more your style.
The more you advance in the game the closer you get to being an expert ghost hunter by completing your missions and gaining new knowledge as a player. Also, fill out your exorcist diary to learn strategies to survive the next contract.
If you are into real mystery-solving stuff that is quite challenging but makes you feel like you can 1v1 Sherlock Holmes at the end, Remnant Records is the perfect match for you. If you enjoyed Phasmophobia, there is a really high chance that you LOVE Remnant Records.
