Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Thursday 05 March 2015
Very bad guys trying to kill the protagonist (you) in A Fork in the Tale (1997). It’s a true interactive movie, meaning it never stops and the player has to make split-second decisions which may or may not be the right ones. I know some people liked it back then, there were even one or two positive reviews, but I remember it as one of the worst games I left unfinished and immediately sold on ebay.
The intro is probably the most intriguing part of the entire experience: a woman on a parking lot gets mugged or attacked by baddies and you try to help her (or not) and end up in hospital with a shot wound, where you somehow enter a mysterious parallel world with the help of a metal bracelet. It’s downhill from there. Idiotic story, really bad acting, cringeworthy humor.
I kinda liked it.
Recently finished: Four Last Things 4/5, Edna & Harvey: The Breakout 5/5, Chains of Satinav 3,95/5, A Vampyre Story 88, Sam Peters 3/5, Broken Sword 1 4,5/5, Broken Sword 2 4,3/5, Broken Sword 3 85, Broken Sword 5 81, Gray Matter 4/5\nCurrently playing: Broken Sword 4, Keepsake (Let\‘s Play), Callahan\‘s Crosstime Saloon (post-Community Playthrough)\nLooking forward to: A Playwright’s Tale
I hope you’ll agree that at least the acting was bad…?
It sounds like a game I might find entertaining if nothing else!
