    A truly brilliant little gem, this. One of the best stories told in 2011, along with the likes of To the Moon. An amazing accomplishment for any sort of game, indie or mainstream regardless.

    As you may have guessed – artistic values, storytelling, narration, and things of that ilk matter to me perhaps more than they do most people. (Which is a crying shame, as I’d love for there to be more of an audience for this sort of thing. but most people seem to prefer shooting people in the head or garrotting orcs with nary a damn for story.) And this one is one that’s going to remain in my mind for a while to come.

    Not only that, but it was a lovely philosophical treatise on the nature of personality, identity, consciousness, and conscience too. What makes a man? This game comes to its own conclusions, and whilst I may not agree with all of them, it’s definitely a very intelligent game and very compelling.

    There’s a lot of intellectual value there.

    I admit that I have high standards, but Gemini Rue met them with aplomb.

    I hope Wadjet Eye have all kinds of succes with this. Dave Gilbert is a retro gaming hero.

    Played it for like an hour. Didn’t like the lack of animation, really didn’t like the trial and error gameplay. Which kind of broke it’s neck.

    Reminded me a lot of KGB, if anyone remembers that game.

    The gameplay is only trial and error if you ignore the myriad clues. There was only one point where I wasn’t sure what to do, and it was because of a UI error. (Which is now fixed.) The rest of the time I was progressing along smoothly.

    Eyes and brains, Watson! Eyes and brains.

    That said, I can’t help but wish that in my first comment I’d said but at least it had conclusions. There are so many go-nowhere stories in games today that a truly well told story with an ending that actually has some weight to it is a rare delight. I cannot recommend this one enough.
