Montague’s Mount does a decent job at bringing home the eeriness of isolation by delivering an overgrown environment to navigate on a closed island off the coast of Ireland. As such, the constant rain, the drab sky, and the chaotically slung objects help add to the disturbed state of mind of the character and to the slowed-down pace of the game.
Taking place in isolation, the game also relies on environmental sounds for most of its audio presence and feedback. The majority of the time, the player will hear typical sounds of the ocean and rain, mixing in footsteps and other localized sounds including the sporadic coughing of the character as he obviously is run down from traipsing around in the rain looking for answers. At key moments, however, the character’s own monologue reveals his back story and the things going through his mind, delivered by UK actor Derek Riddell (State of Mind). As an added touch, the musical elements are excellent and add to the eerie nature of the game.
