In CONVRGENCE, players take on the role of an artifact hunter, venturing into the mysterious Chernokamensk exclusion zone alongside a loyal canine companion. As the day yields to night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as eerie monsters and one’s own fears emerge to threaten survival. Scavenge for loot, fend off bandits, and navigate the procedurally generated terrain, all while uncovering the secrets of the anomalous region.

Should I play CONVRGENCE in 2024?

The Good

The game has a lot of potential, and many players enjoy the core concept and the procedurally generated levels. The addition of a dog companion is a nice touch. The game’s willingness to experiment with new ideas and mechanics is commendable.

The Bad

Many players have experienced bugs and glitches, such as enemies not reacting correctly, physics messes, and clipping issues. The gunplay is also criticized for being awkward and having poor handling. The game’s pace is slow, and some players find the game to be not yet polished enough.

Verdict

Overall, CONVRGENCE has a lot of potential, but it’s not there yet. The game lacks polish, and many players will find the experience frustrating. It’s hard to recommend the game in its current state, especially with the amount of technical issues and bugs present. That being said, the game’s creator is committed to updating and improving the game, so it’s worth keeping an eye on in the future. If you’re a fan of VR shooters and are willing to tolerate some early-game growing pains, you might enjoy CONVRGENCE. However, for now, it’s hard to recommend it as a finished product.
