Summary

This game has atmosphere for miles

The Good

This game has so much atmosphere, it's crazy! The music... the dialogue... the artwork... the whole thing is produced so well, it's insane. You really feel like you're in a film noir.

The Bad

There's not much I didn't like, but if I had to put something, I'd write that the audio was overly compressed. But this game was around when 50MB was considered a large hard drive!

The Bottom Line

Many reviewers gave this game a bad review back in the day because it's basically a carbon copy of a novel and doesn't have much click-for-action-choice.

But by today's standards, that's a bit of a garbage review. Today we talk about "interactive fiction" and "digital literature". We even have "walking simulators" these days, right? If anything, this game was 20 years ahead of its time.
