For some people, the squeaks, buzzes, and hisses of a dial-up modem negotiating a connection are irritating noise. For others—nerds who cut their teeth in the BBS days—that cacophony is the sound of anticipation. It's the latter group that is most likely to appreciate Digital, an interactive short story told through a faux-Amiga workstation from 1988. The Internet is in its nascent, pre-dot-com stages, a mostly empty frontier dotted with tiny outposts of activity. You gain access to those outposts only if a friend passes along the phone number that connects you to the sysop's PC, a convention that feels both archaic but also exclusive: Once you're in, you feel like you belong to something.

Příběh se tak z větší části odvíjí sám od sebe, od hráče se vyžaduje pouze občasné kliknutí. Není bez zajímavosti, že ačkoli se do finále dostanete po nějaké hodince, dokáže být hra po celou tuto dobu zajímavá. Kromě vtipně napsaných textů a solidního příběhu na tom má podíl také stylová retro grafika a především velmi povedená hudba ve stejném duchu. Na jednu stranu je Digital: A Love Story důkazem, že i dnes dokáže zaujmout vlastně obyčejná textovka, na stranu druhou jde ovšem také o netradiční historický exkurz, který rozhodně žádnému uživateli dnešního internetu nemůže uškodit.
