DEAR ESTHER - March 18th, 2013
I knew basically nothing about this game before I tried it out. After getting through it in just a couple hours, I was pleasantly surprised. The developers, thechineseroom, created a unique experience that was unlike any video game I’ve played. The mechanics of the game made it very intriguing. You walk around on an island on a set path and the mystery is slowly unraveled by a narration from an unknown character. I thought it was very unique that you don’t really do anything other than walk around and slowly get bits and pieces of the story as you progress. The graphical detail of the different environments on the island was stunning. Too bad it wasn’t longer.
