Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Tuesday 22 January 2013
Random metaphysical question of the day: Would anyone even remember Post-Mortem if it were not for its vastly superior sequel (Still Life)?
Recently finished: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse (R) (4/5) | Detective Di (3.5/5) | Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations (R) (4.5/5) | Heaven’s Vault (3/5) | Ace Attorney: Justice For All (R) (3.5/5) | Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (R) (4.5/5) | Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space (R) (4.5/5) | The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker (abandoned) (2/5) | Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (3.5/5) | The Sexy Brutale (R) (4/5)
Let’s hope I’ll like it, then. I plan on playing this in the not-so-distant future (because I don’t want to start a series in the middle).
Now playing: Blade Runner (post-CPT) | The Witcher: Enhance Edition (on hold) | Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (on hold) | Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (3DS)

Yes. How is this metaphysical?
Of course. I played Post Mortem years before Still Life came out, and I’ll never forget how much I loved the atmosphere, the colors and Gus MacPherson. When I learned that Gus would return in Still Life—and in third-person (not as much of a fan of first-person AGs)—I knew immediately that the game would be something HUGE. I was right—it’s one of my favorite AGs of all time.
Would anyone even remember Post-Mortem if it were not for its vastly superior sequel (Still Life)?
I would. I liked the game, although it’s far from being the best AG I have played.
The human race is doomed to progress.
Certainly I remember Post Mortem. It was one of the first games I played where dialog at the very start of a game determined your path through the game.
That womans face looks incredibly bizarre, even for an old game with poor 3D models.
