Hotel Dusk is an absolutely fantastic game. I especially liked how the characters’ backstories was progressively revealed and you started to realize that fate had brought together all these people who were all connected in some way (it was very reminiscent of early Lost—you know, back when it was good).

I can’t believe it’s been almost 6 years since its release.

I remember this game getting a very favourable review on Gamespot, and consequently I started thinking that adventure games had jumped to the Nintendo DS.

This was one of the first games I actively sought out when the missus got a DS. Haven’t regretted that at all. Very good game, with a great style, and as noir as you can get without having an actual P.I. in it…

Also, Kyle Hyde looks exactly like a friend of mine… which I didn’t hesitate to point out to him… Grin
Sadly, he’s sticking to Halo-clones… Frown


The sequel to this even managed to be at least as good, if not better…

One of those great DS adventures

I liked this one but had to force myself to play the sequel until the end, I was getting bored by the story.

Great game. But I do think the sequel is better. Smile
