easy, fun, engaging, noir-inspired adventure in Oz :)


This is a great noir-inspired adventure game set in the land of Oz created by L. Frank Baum. Its presentation is like a tribute to classic adventure games from the 90s—but with a modern logical structure. Stylistically, locations, character designs, soundtrack and particularly the voice acting are all highly effective in achieving both the noir & retro gaming feel. Puzzles are definitely on the easy side, but this serves to place the focus firmly with the engaging story and characters.

My main criticism is that the graphics and sound were over-compressed to the point that visual compression artefacts and audible static were both apparent, but these didn’t detract greatly from the overall experience. Also, the character animations could’ve done with a little more refining. But as a cheap download on the BigFish Games website (which is how i acquired it), Emerald City Confidential is excellent value. And for all you Mac owners like me, a native Mac version IS AVAILABLE!!
