Description

Reah, a planet of unknown, holding nothing that would justify setting up a colony there. However, a base was set up, in order to secretly investigate an alien artifact - a teleportation gateway, which teleported people to another dimension. It linked Reah to some other radically different planets. The research of other dimension was quite difficult as it appeared that human technology had very little use on that undiscovered place, and wasn't working properly. So, the only possible way to investigate is to be there in person. Thus, a small group of scientists had set up a small research center on the other side, and you, as the journalist, was offered the chance to visit it and break the great discovery to the world. However, it seemed there were certain problems on the portal site, and that connection was about to become unstable. Of course, that's less than enough to stop the ambicious journalist ready to become famous, so you step in, and that's a moment when you confirm your act of greed. The connection was lost, leaving you in front of the walls of a strange city, facing the unknown.

Reah is a first person adventure game that has increased puzzle level, which leads us to more than hundred puzzles awaiting you to solve them, or forever be trapped. Reah comes in two surprizes to us: in a package of 6 CDs (which holds less quality graphic elements), or double-sided DVD version (that keeps a quality of 10 CDs, which dramatically increases graphics, as you can check from its official web site).
