    _________________________

    The Gaming Industry is rife with huge corporations like Electronic Arts who spew forth endless reams of games each year, very often franchises that are guaranteed to fill their coffers. These games, can quite often lack a soul. Ok, that's a little melodramatic, EA aren't Lucifer reincarnated as many gamers would have you believe, however if like me, you occasionally long for something a little different then today I have a treat in store for you.

    Really wonderful review, I was hoping this would get a look. I think I'm going to pick this up next week.

    I bought the full version and highly recommend it. It's one of those purely gameplay focused titles you don't see much anymore from commercial studios. And if you're worried that it'll seem cheap or half ass due to its indieness, it really doesn't. Just try the (2 hour) demo. It's a very long, very rewarding experience well worth 30 bucks.

    I prefer to play this game with a gamepad, it's perfectly suited for it. But the mouse works just as well.

    Also, 16:9 & 16:10 support are on the way probably in the next patch.

    Excellent review and worth a look.

    One minor thing, I can't read the first two paragraphs at the top, black writing on the dark image is a bit hard on the old peepers.

    i enjoyed that review, definately sounds like the sort of game i'd like to play
    i'm a fan of the older style adventure games (you don't see many these days)

    I'll give the demo a try. It actually looks rather decent.
