So, this game was absolutely beautifully breathtaking in its sceneries. The graphics are outstanding and the whole feel of it is actually rather eerie. This is a piece of interactive storytelling, or at least I thought anyhow.
It gave me the feel of letters that had been written, and later read by the person playing. That the reader got to relive the last final moments of the writer, this man that went through so much and finally be set free at the end.
The name of the game however eludes me as I couldn’t get a true grip of whom Esther was nor any of the others, something about her being in a car crash. But was it all real or was it just a delirious man writing in his last dying breaths?
You go through the game, almost floating and get to explore caves, open fields and abandoned houses while the beautiful music is playing in the background. This is a remake of an mod that was originally released in the Source engine in 2008.
