Review

Blacksad: Under the Skin is a 2019 adventure from Pendulo Studios. Blacksad is an excellent comic that won the Fabula Rasa Award for Best Comic and Best Art in 2012, and after the successful adventure The Wolf Among Us from the now defunct Telltale studio, the old-school detective got an incarnation in the form of a video game on Mac OS with a similar genre - Under the Skin.

John Blacksad is a war veteran, private detective who gets into trouble from the first moment. The daughter of a deceased boxing gym owner hires John to investigate. Not only is there something strange about her father's death. The club's most promising boxer disappears a few days before the title fight.

The classic storyline picks up steam over the course of eight hours of playtime and transcends the sports scene. The story of a panther detective touches on many sensitive topics, such as the use of doping, counterfeiting, the impact of military campaigns on the minds of soldiers, but also does not avoid topics related to violence against minors or illegal testing of pharmacological drugs on humans (in this case, due to anthropomorphization characters of the game in animals). Topics are touched upon superficially, bringing chaos into the narrative.

Despite the declared importance of the decisions made, the plot is linear and the choice means almost nothing. QTE fights occur periodically, some of which look great and create a very memorable atmosphere, such as when Blacksad is attacked in a dark alley and the whole battle is like a duel of shadows on a lit brick wall.

The most interesting part of Blacksad: Under the Skin is the detective component. John, as a member of the feline family, is distinguished by keen eyesight and hearing, as well as a sensitive sense of smell, so he does not miss a single piece of evidence. True, the game does not allow you to leave the location until everything you need is collected. There is an opportunity to look into the notebook, which is updated automatically, where individual notes are combined into a big picture. A similar mechanic was in L.A. Noire. The idea is really interesting if you link notes yourself, but the game helps and shows how many of them can be linked at this stage, which greatly simplifies the process.

The game for Mac OS has a great soundtrack. The noir atmosphere is constantly reinforced by the saxophone tones in the background. The tint of the fifties of the last century is felt in everything. Lovers of collectibles in-game items will not be left out. During the game, you can fill the album with stickers of boxers, hockey players, baseball players or basketball players. Although the project does not have licenses for the corresponding American leagues, the human equivalents of athletes are easy to guess. The game is set in the fifties, so there is no Jagr Bear or Gretzky Weasel.

Under the Skin attracts primarily by the style, atmosphere and originality of the idea with the replacement of human characters with animals, which is why it is definitely worth Download.
