Description

9: The Last Resort is a surreal point-and-click adventure game in which you have just inherited a large mansion and have to get rid of the 9 evil muses that have taken it over. The gameplay is first person view and similar to Myst which means you spend most of your time searching for clues and solving logic puzzles, often mechanical or musical ones. Later in the game you also have to solve a shooting gallery sequence.

It is most notable for involving some of the most famous people ever in a computer game including Robert De Niro, Cher, James Belushi, Christopher Reeve and a couple of guys out of the rock band Aerosmith.

Trivia

Extras

In the box of the U.S. release an envelope is included which contains a (mock-up) postcard and tourist brochure for The Last Resort and the Last Will and Testament of Thurston Last.

Movies

All the in-game scenes are stored as QuickTime movies on the CD. They can be played with any QuickTime player.

Tribeca

To date (2010), this is the only game in history to have been co-produced by Robert DeNiro, the Hollywood star. He was the co-founder of Tribeca Interactive, and is the reason why this game has such an impressive voice talent roll-call (including Cher!). Although DeNiro is more famous as an actor, he is also an astute businessman; he also owns a pair of successful restaurants and a hotel, and runs a film festival. 9: The Last Resort was the first and last game ever produced by Tribeca.
