I can’t see the poll! I was going to suggest an addition to the list though:
Silent Footsteps (Frostlind Games)(2017)
Ofcourse Starbreeze’s Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
“The universe is a dream dreamed by a single dreamer where all the dream characters dream too.”
I can’t see the poll either & have only played 2 of the games that you listed.
Usually that would leave me hesitant to make a choice except the games were Kathy Rain & Fran Bow both excellent games, my preference being kathy Rain.
I finished four games in the poll and left two unfinished. The Dream Machine stands out for me, but I’ll still go for Other. I loved the adventure game Oknytt and its humble protagonist. By the Swedish company Nemoria Entertainment. It deserves to be on the list or even in the poll.
I’m finding my inner self… Unforeseen Incidents
Didn’t realise there were so many Swedish games. No pole to be seen, but I’d have voted “Other” as I really enjoyed Penumbra: Black Plague and the rest of the Frictional catalogue. Wish I played The Journey Down, but people at the CPT just won’t vote for it.
PC means personal computer
Well, I have no idea what happened with the poll. The thread is marked as having one but it doesn’t appear and nothing I’ve done to try and fix it has worked so I guess it’s a bust.
I guess the thread works as a list of Swedish adventure games though. I’ve added the additional games you’ve mentioned to the list in the first post.
As for me, I’ve finished 21 of the games mentioned and partially played one more. I’m torn between Fran Bow and The Dream Machine, but I think I’ll go with the latter simply because of its mixed media presentation. There’s not enough of that IMO.
The Dream Machine is one of my all-time favorites along with
The Carol Reed games, formulaic but relaxing and enjoyable.
Of those I’ve played:
Great: Fran Bow, Whispers of a Machine, Kathy Rain, Oknytt and Year Walk. And probably Traitors Gate, but I never managed to complete it due to problems getting it to run properly.
Good: The Carol Reed games and Decay: The Mare. And The Samaritan Paradox (if it’s Swedish, which I believe it is).
Less good: Silent Footsteps and Gilbert Goodmate.
Loved Penumbra 1 (apart from fighting dogs) but hit a game breaking bug half way through.
Was almost gonna suggest adding Blackout to the list before remembering it is Danish.
Samaritan Paradox. one of the best adventure games ever.
