Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Monday 30 July 2012
I know the arguments against it: it talks too much, you have to replay it 12 billion times to find the ending… I don’t care. Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors is an unforgettable ride and I love it to bits.
(Also it really doesn’t talk too much. The characters are fumbling because they’ve been abducted and they have a device strapped to their wrists that could blow them up any second. If you expect them to be talking straight and to the point in these conditions, you’re an idiot.)
(And the multiple replays to find the right path are a fantastic meta-puzzle once accept its rules. It does get a bit tedious after a while, but the ability to skip conversations you’ve already read helps a lot, and the pay-off makes it all worth it.)
(And no, the irony of my writing that previous comment after my posts in this thread hasn’t escaped it. I blame Stockholm syndrome — quite literally in this case. )
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)
Never could get into that game.
An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.
*bump* (sorry, I’m behind with my posting and I don’t like to “skip” threads - blame my OCPD)
Brilliant game! Gripped me immediately and I couldn’t put it down until I’d found ALL the endings… One of my absolute favourite DS games!
