    Looks like journo-bait. Just like Senua's Sacrifice.

    It would probably be better as a simple walking simulator. Linear "stealth" and crate-pushing seems like a very bad way to try and add to the walking simulator formula.

    Dear Esther was a mildly interesting short story set to a backdrop of an exceptionally pretty environment and great sound design. But it didn't pretend to be more than that.


    People were justifiably upset about Dear Esther because of reviewers hyping it. Reviewers calling it a game; a moving, emotional game that was somehow as good or better than something interactive. Which is absurd.

    These others are pretending to be fully fledged games and even suggesting they're superior for their disproportionate focus on linear narrative. Which is also absurd.

    These kids look fairly handsome and well nourished for being orphans in plague-ridden medieval Europe.

    "...meticulous research"

    Actually, when there's a plague that kills all the hungry mouths, a surplus of food results.

    Lirik already finished it in 2 sittings (8 hours !?).

    The entire game is a huge scripted corridor. Zero replayability.

    The game has sub-par gameplay but fucking hell atmosphere is top tier. Will play more to see where it goes.

    another non game that will sell like hot cakes in the first week due to marketing alone and will convince publishers that more of this shit is a good idea.

    If it didn't have crafting mechanics, I would have been interested in this game.

    5 hours into the game and I dig it. Pretty perilous and gritty atmosphere with a glimpse of hope, capture very well the feeling of a powerless runaway rabbit. The little kid is small child who never saw the world in front of his eyes before, so while he's annoying for nagging at you for the tiniest things ever, he's also realistic. The dialogue... I don't know, has this straightforward European-y delivery in it? A bit difficult to describe, it reminded me of The Council's various effortlessly written dialogue that serves no purpose other than filling up empty moments.

    Gameplay is pretty rudimental, nothing to write home about. Basic stealth, basic distract->sneak->repeat loop. Backdrops make up for it. Early in the game where the sisters have to cross a gigantic dark field full of dead bodies piled up each other, this section is pretty on rail gameplay wise since you only have to light up braziers to scare the rats away and avoid inquisition soldiers, yet it still gave me the chill thanks to the horrific scenery.

    It shouldn't be priced at what it is.

    Play with French VO

    I liked it despite the poor gameplay. Atmosphere is good.
