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.

WindowsHrej! (Aug 14, 2010)
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.

The presentation is what sells the prose, which is stripped down, well chosen and elevated by its sheer naturalism. Characters are clear. Even over twenty years on, we recognise these sorts of people. We recognise them from the RPS comments threads. We recognise them in the reflection on our monitor screens. Emilia starts a little idealised, but her iconic minimalism works well – simplify to magnify, simplify to universalise. We imprint on the shape of Emilia, and that imprinted affection is what gives the rest of the game its powerful direction and real mystery.
