The Last Express,
designed by Jordan Mechner and Smoking Car Productions, was made available for purchase and download on DotEmu earlier this month
, and has now pulled into another platform for digital distribution: GOG
. Set on the Orient Express in 1914, the non-linear adventure was notable for incorporating rotoscoped animation, characters with active agendas, and an intriguing conspiracy that unfolded in real-time -- mostly.
GOG is asking $5.99 for The Last Express
, which comes with a making-of video. The site promises that more extras will be added soon, while DotEmu has the game, a walkthrough, a making-of video and the soundtrack for roughly the same price
. Either way, it's a good deal if you'd like to try an adventure game in which tardy, unmotivated behavior can derail the ideal.
