Acerca de este juego

“A deserted island…a lost man…memories of a fatal crash…a book written by a dying explorer.”

Two years in the making, the highly anticipated Indie remake of the cult mod Dear Esther arrives on PC. Dear Esther immerses you in a stunningly realised world, a remote and desolate island somewhere in the outer Hebrides. As you step forwards, a voice begins to read fragments of a letter: "Dear Esther..." - and so begins a journey through one of the most original first-person games of recent years. Abandoning traditional gameplay for a pure story-driven experience, Dear Esther fuses its beautiful environments with a breathtaking soundtrack to tell a powerful story of love, loss, guilt and redemption.

Forget the normal rules of play; if nothing seems real here, it’s because it may just be all a delusion. What is the significance of the aerial -- What happened on the motorway -- is the island real or imagined -- who is Esther and why has she chosen to summon you here? The answers are out there, on the lost beach, the windswept cliffs and buried in the darkness of the tunnels beneath the island… Or then again, they may just not be, after all…

Dear Esther is supported by Indie Fund.

Key features:

  • Every play-through a unique experience, with randomly generated audio, visuals and events.
  • Explore Incredible environments that push the Source engine to new levels of beauty.
  • A poetic, semi-randomised story like you've never experienced in a game before.
  • Stunning soundtrack featuring world-class musicians.
  • An uncompromisingly inventive game delivered to the highest AAA standards.

Soundtrack

Jessica Curry's haunting and beautiful soundtrack to Dear Esther, now available on Steam, has been a hit with gamers and critics alike. Reviewers have said ""Curry's score reflects the player's feelings without oppressively instructing them. Exquisitely constructed, both sonically and visually" (Eurogamer), "as beautiful as the game is, it’d be remiss not to mention Curry’s atmospheric soundtrack...impossible to ignore." (Edge), "spellbinding, fascinating aural landscape: a resounding success" (Square Enix), "Curry's delicate & understated musical score achieves a level of excellence. It's the ultimate achievement of composition." (Bitgamer). The soundtrack was shortlisted for the Excellence in Audio award at the Independent Games Festival 2012

The graphics !!! Oh boy I'm speechless.
It's a pity that it didn't have a story (to gather some clues on the way or something) .
Put a story in and it will sell beautifully.

this isnt a game you need to play. this is a game you can watch. if you find a no commentary playthrough on youtube that is likely just as good for a first playthrough. subsequent playthroughs you may want to do on your own to find all the little details you missed. and to find the way things change. but seriously its just walking and enjoying the view and the narration. granted it gets pretty damn good.

Beautiful graphics and music and interesting story. Besides these, this is not exactly a game, it's more of a walking simulator and takes about 1-1.30 hours to finish it. Buy ONLY ON SALE, I can't recommend it for more that $3.

A groundbreaking work, arguably one of the first great walking simulators.

The game starts with some guy (the guy I'm controlling, maybe?) rambling on about a shipwreck. I look around a bit, and I see a house just up the path. As I enter it, the game automatically turns on the flashlight despite having literally no other controls for me to do other than walk and look. Seems like they could have let me do that. Anywho, the house was devoid of anything meaningful. Okay, well, that's just the first place, and I literally just got here. I shouldn't expect them to reel me into something interesting so quickly. You know, like a well-written story.

So I continue up the path to a cave, and I start babbling about a legend of some guy in the cave. Awesome, but I wonder why my flashlight did not come on this time. Maybe it's supposed to be dark because something sweet is going to happen. I reach the dead end of cave expecting...something, but alas, the cave, too, is empty. The narrator/internal monologue/crazy guy talking to himself finishes the story with something along the lines of "like everyone else, I suppose he deemed me unworthy." Ha, I get jokes. Well played, game. You totally got me.

I turn back to my beachhead, at a casual stroll, of course. There is no run button either. Just walk, look, and what I like to call "squint," because it's kind of like a zoom, only not really. But I leisurely walk down the beach, wondering why there are no footprints in the sand. I guess not only is Jesus not with me today, but also I can levitate. Am I a Jedi? They can fly right? Oh wait, I'm thinking of David Blaine. That guy is legit.

I spot was appears to be a drawing in the sand. I study it for a minute, but like most artists, the elusive Sand Blaster is not going to be appreciated in his lifetime. I suspect it is actually a map of sorts, seeing as there is what appears to be an arrow swooping down towards...something...from the main part. I become wistful for a minimap or compass, or the ability to do anything, but I resign myself to pushing onward.

Further up the beach, the voices in my head mention finding the ship's manifest amongst some paint cans. I remember seeing those in the house. Did I say the house was empty? Well, I lied. It did have empty paint cans in with all the other debris. I feel terrible for keeping such a vital detail from you. Forgive me? Sweet. You're the best. I <3 you. But the manifest! Surely that will have some pertinent information. I don't have an inventory, nor did I actually pick anything up, but the voices in my head would not leave me hanging...

I reach the end of the beach. There is a rocky creek of sorts leading off the beach, but I can clearly see that goes nowhere. I look around in every direction. Another dead end, it would seem. Plus, the voices in my head have gone silent. They didn't even enlighten me as to what was on that rad manifest. Bummer. I guess I should walk back to the start again...

Suddenly, I find myself overwhelmed with a desire to walk into the ocean and end this waking nightmare. To silence the demon of boredom in my head. I step into the water and feel a sense of relief. I keep going at my usual sprinter-on-tranquilizers pace. Steadily the water rises to eye level, only to stop. Ah, such are the invisible walls of existence that keep us eye-level with the sky and the texture-less blackness below, with the soothing sounds of dunking your head over and over again. Much like the juxtaposition of my zoom/squint button, I find myself drowning but not drowning.

I stare off into the ocean abyss and contemplate the decisions I've made with my life.

10/10, would play for 9 minutes and uninstall again.

If you're into walking simulator games, you found the trophy. It's seriously almost perfect in its delivery and execution, and then there's the story which is beautifully told through the environment.

oh my gosh! i must review this game. this game is so amazing! i don't understand why the brats here have to negatively rate this game.. they obviously didn't read a damn thing about the game before buying it... then getting ♥♥♥♥♥♥ when it wasn't what they wanted. RESEARCH your games before you dumbly buy something and think you're going to have a fallout 4 experience.. ffs people.

NOW LISTEN

this isn't your typical game, it is more of a physical audio book.. i think i'll have to play this a few times because i was so freaking blown away by the graphics and landscapes and places that i didn't taken in the entire story.... THIS GAME HAS SOME OF THE BEST GRAPHICS I HAVE EVER SEEN.
ever seen a 4k skyrim texture mod? this is it... this is it. ( besides the flowers and mushrooms being completely flat and "turn" when you walk around/past them ) but come on, THIS GAME HAS AN EPIC AMOUNT OF SCENERY

don't buy this game expecting a game, you don't interact with the world, you don't do anything but walk places and look and have your mind blown over and over.. enjoy the story. the end.

not necessarily worth $10 ... about like 1/4th that, but it was worth it in my eyes.. i can replay this many many many times and the photographer in me will work hours to get some photos of this place ( which is my goal )

Very beautiful walking simulator. The story takes place on an island. Sadly it is very straight forward, no much room for exploration. There are a couple of houses and caves that are optional to explore.
The game is devided into 4 chapters, each will take about 10-20 minutes (depending on how much you explore the surrounding and take screenshots).
Make sure to play this in one session, because when you exit the game, you have to start from chapter 1 again. Once you completed the game you can replay every chapter from the main menu.

Not a game for those who really detest 'walking simulators' but otherwise I would highly recommend.

Its hard to explain without spoilers, but it makes great use of the source engines graphical capabilites, has fantastic writing and narration and...the story made me cry :'( Too much feels for one game, I do not have enough internets to handle it.

Its short but...er, not sweet. Just really good. I guess it kind of is sweet, but yeah. Spoiler :P

First of all, understand why a lot of (if not most) negative reviews exist: People don't comprehend the game.

This is one of those games that you don't play, you live it.
It requires emotional sensitivity to grasp its content, and specially its intent.
Yes, it is only walking through beautiful places, but that's not the point.
This game is a journey, not only on your computer screen, but also a personal one. Open yourself to this game and you'll understand it, but most important, you may understand yourself.

I strongly recommend this game for all those who face depression and understand its nature.

Que paseo! Que historiaza! QUE FINAL! Que si, que el juego no consiste en otra cosa que andar, pero me encantan los juegos que te hacen pensar y explican una historia como esta... Pedazo de novela gráfica. No juegues con prisa, avanza mirando a tu alrededor, fijandote en todos los detalles, que con esos gráficos vale la pena, y por supuesto... llega a la luz parpadeante.

Mi nota un 8/10. Vuelvo a decir que no es un videojuego como lo conocemos...es un paseo por tu mente...

Si no dominas el inglés hay varías guías de como ponerlo en español.

No puedes interactuar. No puedes saltar. No puedes correr. No puedes disparar ni pegar. Solo mirar. ¿Es una ♥♥♥♥♥♥? Júegalo y verás que es una de las mejores experiencias que vas a tener nunca. Una historia muy muy compleja en la que puede que te pierdas mucho, pero que si enlazas y te quedas con lo que ves en cada uno de sus capítulos te quedarás de piedra. Recomiendo el doblaje al español del artista Francisco J. Galdo, que puedes descargar del siguiente enlace: http://www.respawnroom.com/dear-esther/

Podríamos decir que Dear Esther es un concepto experimental aún por explotar, llevado a cabo de una forma magistral en cuanto a gráficos, música e historia.

Una apuesta segura para el gamer cansado de una generación prácticamente monotemática. Un experimento para los amantes del cine pero no de los videojuegos. Un reto para cualquier persona no acostumbrada ni siquiera a la aventuras gráficas, que encontrará en Dear Esther un entretenimiento nuevo y apasionante o la cosa mas aburrida e inexplicable a la que ha jugado nunca.

Esta es la conclusión de un extenso análisis sobre el juego que podréis encontrar aquí: http://www.combogamer.com/1858/analisis-dear-esther/

No es un juego como tal, pero tiene unos gráficos inmensos y una cuidada y bella banda sonora. La historia que narra y la forma de hacerlo no deja indiferente a nadie. En resumen... que es único y hay que experimentarlo, porque de verdad que merece la pena.
