Review of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter by Devilfish

Stars - 50

Rating by Devilfish posted on Oct 9, 2014 | edit | delete

Short and bittersweet

I literally cannot say anything about this game without spoiling everything about it. So trust me when I say that while it’s flawed, everything that’s good about it vastly outweighs it. It’s short, but it’s exactly as long as it needs to be. The absolutely gorgeous graphics alone may be worth it, and I’m not even someone who cares about graphics. I may have finished this game in four hours instead of five if I didn’t keep stopping everywhere to take in the view and hammer the screenshot key.

If you like weird fiction, short narrative experiences, if you liked games like Gone Home and The Path, if you want a game that puts atmosphere and narrative first, I promise you will love this.
