Summary

Needs To Be Longer

The Good

The atmosphere is great. A good detective story. Some great puzzles. Would make a good sci-fi movie. Music adds a lot to the overall mood of the game. Can't get stuck (as in no need to restart if you forget something from the first chapter)

The Bad

Way too short. I got it for about $10 CDN with Symbiocom so I'm not really complaining. But I'd be not too impressed if I'd paid 20$ US for it. Some puzzles are bit on the vague side.

The Bottom Line

It's a very moody and atmospheric detective story set in a science-fiction setting. You are sent to this outpost to investigate a murder and of course find out that there might be more to the murder than it first seems. Shows what you can really crank out with the Flash engine (yes, the Macromedia Flash engine)
