35MM :: The Bear Out There

Equipped with a camera and a knife in this 35MM game, a bear attack seems inevitable while hiking through the woods. Where have all the people gone?


Fitting that the game be called 35MM as a camera is one of a few things I have in my possession at the start of the game. My partner and I have apparently been hiking through the woods, taking a momentary break at a small wooden cabin. Perhaps I can salvage some supplies. But why do I need to steal from an old cabin? Are we lost? Are we searching for someone? Or something? After finding a car by the side of the road, it appears we may not be the only people around.

Storm clouds roll through the land as we trek through a dense patch of woodland. Ambient sounds of birds, crickets, and other insects and creatures stimulate the audio sense creating an immersive feel. But my partner believes we’ve stumbled into a dangerous part of the woods. Perhaps I need to be more concerned about wild animals such as a giant bear!

About the Game & Story:

35MM is a post-apocalyptic game for the PC about two Russian travelers who set out on a long journey in the wasteland, left by people after the global epidemic. Most of the world’s population has been wiped out, leaving the infrastructure decrepit and void of life. The humans lucky enough to be alive cling onto the little scraps leftovers for survival. Food cans and health kits are few and far between. But clever exploration can yield successful results.

The gameplay of 35MM consists primarily of walking through different environments in search of clues and answers. The lead character, Petrovitch, is equipped with a 35MM camera which can be used to take photos of anything in the game. Will those 35MM photos serve any purpose to the main story? At times, it may be necessary to consult a game guide or walkthrough in the event you get lost. Though I can only hope that my gameplay of 35MM assists players in their own playthrough.

The 35MM game is on PC, playable with mouse and keyboard. Usually I prefer to play games with controller support. But I couldn’t resist the appeal of this game. Plenty of 35MM game achievements are ready to be unlocked, with 20 achievements in total.

35MM reviews are ‘Mostly Positive’ on Steam after being released in May of 2016. I, myself, concur with these reviews as it is a fun, tense, and often times downright scary game. And at a price of less than $9 on Steam for PC, you can’t go wrong! My overall 35MM review is positive and I commend the developers of the game for creating such an intriguing atmosphere and eerie soundtrack. When the story concludes, you’ll feel as if you’ve traveled so far and overcome both internal and external obstacles.

Achievements unlocked in my full 35MM gameplay:
– What happened? (Listen the airwaves in the hospital)
– Faith in God will help us (Light a candles in an abandoned church)
– Friend (Give your partner a first aid kit)
– What the numbers mean? (Listen to the radio signal in tunnels)
– The past is always with us (Reach the finals [spoilers removed])

Fun Fact: A special Halloween update of 35MM was released in October 2016 in which three lit pumpkin lamps were hidden in the game. The first three people who found them and sent screenshots to developers were awarded with cash prizes or their choice of steam game! Pretty cool!

The 35MM game discussions remain active on Steam boards for any one who requires further assistance. Additionally, multiple websites provide written walkthroughs of the game, through I was unable to find a 35MM game wiki / wikipedia page.

The game includes subtitles for English and Russian languages. Character dialogue is available in Russian only.
