The latest game to enter Steam's internet tubes
is quite a gem -- at least if you find yourself yearning for a beautifully crafted story. Though Dreamfall
, the follow-up to adventure darling, The Longest Journey
, is somewhat devoid of traditional adventure mechanics, it succeeds admirably as an interactive piece of fiction. Much like David Cage
's Indigo Prophecy,
it's not particularly concerned with how
you get from point A to point B, but rather intent on making you play until the early hours of the morning so you can discover what happens at points C, D and F (point E is killed in an unexpected plot development, you see.)
If you haven't given it a bash yet, the $29.95 Steam version presents a solid second chance for both you and the game.
