this is a reasonable investigative thriller adventure game. not particularly strong in any aspect, but quite adequate in most. it was saved from feeling quite flat by a strong lead voice performance. otherwise the characterisations were quite weak. the plot was kinda “still life” lite. the game was made by a Polish developer, City Interactive, and whoever did the english translation/localisation was not up to scratch for a professional project. although you could mostly understand the intention of phrases, and therefore follow the game’s progress easily enough, it was quite obvious that things just didn’t sound right. The puzzles were straight-forward enough. It wasn’t a difficult game and could be considered a little short. The pre-rendered graphics were a highlight. It was a very familiar adventure game interface which worked tidily. Music was ok. but the ending was awful! it’s like the developers ran out of time in the final cutscene and I’m still confused about what actually happened. It’s the first adventure from City Interactive, and they show enough promise that with some improvements (definitely including a better localisation team) they may come up with something special in the future.
