關於此遊戲

“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

Proof that the source engine can still be used for art. Source SDK, give it a try, learn to model, it will change your life.

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.

¯\_(^u^)_/¯ Can't complain!
I liked it, nice narration, slightly spooky or atmospheric as they say. For 3 hours and a price of under 10,- definetely worth the buy.

This game was an enjoyable experience, but it's length left *much* to be desired - my 1.3 hours of gameplay was completing the game in it's entirety AND exploring off the intended path only to find nothing of value. While the story and environments were positively beautiful, it felt completely linear and narrative driven with little no action that can be considered "gameplay" and virtually no replay value. I got this game via a bundle online, and if you can as well I would say it would be worthwhile to play through it for the short but captivating story. Otherwise, I cannot recommend purchasing this game at it's current value of $10.

Not worth the ten dollars... There is no way to interact with anything around you, nor does the game last the player more than a couple of hours to finish, nor does the plot make sense. Will say that the artwork was decent. Do not recommend...

Very awe-inspiring and emotional. The graphics in this game have really been improved.

I remember when I first tried this game out when it was a mod for Source (2007 I think?). It always struck me as a unique mod at the time that sort of strayed away from action in favor of narration, suspense, and a bit of exploration.

Runtime is only about an hour and half if you take your time, but I feel its worth it. Great job.

As an English major, maybe I am biased. Maybe also I am biased by the facts that my fiance died 12 months ago, that my mother died several months after that, and that my father soon died after her. It has been a rough year. Maybe that's why I love this game, and why I already own about ~3-4 copies of it so far, due to Humble Bundles and whatnot...

But perhaps not.

I loved Dear Esther long before any of that stared, after all. I certainly played it at least more than 21 times, trying to figure out where its lines were, though I could never exactly locate them on my maps. I would try to explain it to my fiance, to my dad, to my mom, back when they were still alive, why a 'video game' meant so much to me. How stupid was that? Trying to explain why a 'video game' actually meant something? Instanity, right? Like a barnacle, clinging stupidly to a rock, just trying to not slide into the ocean.

Or, perhaps, it is just that Dear Esther is really not a game, but rather a brilliant piece of existential human literature? Is that a real option? Really?

Maybe this 'game' is as good as the hype, or at least maybe it is for those who are listening for its quiet themes and narratives. Maybe it captured something its 'haters' are deaf to.

Ah, who cares...

This is my all-time favourite video 'game', and I don't care if it's not really a game or not, or if scores of others don't understand/appreciate it and instead choose to pile heaps of scorn/mockery/ridicule on it for not fitting within the mold they've decided it needs to fit.

This is, uquestionably, IMHO, the greatest video 'game' I've ever played, full-stop, even if there is no actual game to play. Dear Esther is a rare, precious gem of a 'game', and it makes me feel good just to have had the priveledge of experiencing it.

Personally I found this game pretty good. The broken fragments of the narrator recalling letters he sent to Esther and the bits and pieces of left behind mysteries you find among your walk of the island are haunting yet calming. I find the game had me creating my own story of what happened, which personally I like as it's essentially reading a book that you get to visualize and make your own image of whats happening. There is a few points where you see figures among the mountains and in various areas, makes me wonder exactly what is happening, almost like following the life of a schizophrenic obsessed with a woman named Esther. I recommend it at sale price, not for 10$.

Do not get this if you are expecting a game.
You do not shoot anything, in fact there are no other characters or any other living things with the exception of a random bird or two.

I wouldn't even recommend getting this at the full price of $10, but I am not hating on this.

This little piece of software is in a strange little categoy that is hard to explain, but it is rather fun to walk around on this island and check things out, look at the beauty, and listen to the story unfold. This is not a game it is dark poetry and I would highly recommend it if there is a steam sale on. Be warned, you can complete the whole thing in about an hour...but since it is so short it is fun to walk through several times because you have a tendancy to find things you missed the first time.

P.S. It has some pretty caves.

I played this when it first came out on Steam. And it stays with me to this day, unlike almost everything else I have played. The music is superb - bravo, Jessica Curry! - and the journey I took meant so much more to me than any other PC game.
No, you cannot hop and jump etc. That takes some getting used to. But you don't need to. From the vistas to the haunting speeches, from the shock of a half-seen spectral figure to the jarringly unnatural elements of some of the scenery, such as car parts and glowing paintings, playing this game changed me. I genuinely experienced a great deal, and the ending left me speechless with joy.

Dear Esther - 親愛的艾斯特
"在一座荒島… 一個迷失的男人…一個令人致命的崩潰回憶…一個垂死的探險家寫的一本書"
拋棄以往我們對遊戲的觀感,創造出這是到底現實還是幻想的景觀,因為在這裡,一切都是將只是虛無、因為在這裡,一切都可能是種錯覺
就只為了讓我們體驗一個質樸無華,從開始到結束一切都只是日出而作,日入而息的故事。
那麼主角為何出現在一座鳥不生蛋小島? 那麼艾斯特又是誰呢? 高速公路上到底發生了什麼事情?
這些答案得靠我們自己去尋找,在這個鏡花水月的世界中
而在這裡,沒有敵人、在這裡,沒有危險,這裡有的只是最原始的寧靜、最原始的回憶。。。
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Esther不能說上是一款"遊戲" 比較像是互動式的小說,是個完全以劇情為主的遊戲
這款遊戲在場景設計和遊戲畫面中 可說是非常的細密,讓我覺得這款遊戲就是讓我來欣賞風景用的>A<
再加上那令人讚嘆的配樂,就可以讓人沉迷在這遊戲當中了
不過在遊戲當中,大部分的劇情是不會以主角自白來訴說,反而是利用大量的物品來描述這整個故事。

+讓人融入劇情的配樂
+令人驚豔的畫質表現
+發人省思的故事
+場景製作用心
+獨立製作
-完全無遊戲性可言 (這不重要)
-遊戲進行非常緩慢 (這也不太怎麼重要)

有人說這款遊戲是垃圾,也有人說這款遊戲是藝術,
每個人都有不同的觀感,只差在願不願意去體會、去感覺。
我認為,這款遊戲是件藝術,它所注重的不是遊戲性,而是劇情。(加上養眼的畫質)

一個非常值得沈思

另人有感觸的遊戲

雖然只是不停的前進

但所敘述的事情,是深刻的

我體會到那份思念跟後悔

多麼想把思念傳達出去

有人說這是個一直走的爛遊戲

也有人說這是很美的一款藝術

我個人是贊同第二個說法

因為我自己也感觸到了

那份不捨

那份害怕

那份憤怒

但到頭來

還是選擇放下了

不經讓我開始思考著,當生命到了盡頭

是否也會到一個陌生但美麗的地方,讓你回憶著,思念著或者是不安著

也是否能把那份希望傳達的

給傳達出去呢?

強力推薦這款以 Source 引擎所製作的第一人稱傳統冒險遊戲,不論遊戲畫面還是背景配樂幾乎可以說是完全不輸給"心靈殺手"!!

It isn’t a game, it’s an experience.

A lot of the criticism and confusion of Dear Esther is brought about because it is not exactly 'a game'. There are no enemies, no objectives, no inventory, nothing we've come to expect in video games. It is where art, storytelling and games intersect, to create a masterpiece.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=553155472

Dear Esther is visually astounding. Journey deep into the island's caves and you will be utterly in awe of the beauty therein.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=498467039

The music is beautifully haunting, always appropriate in intensity for the situation, and never overwhelming it.
The narration contributes significantly to the player's emotional state while traversing the island. His rantings and musings, his rage and his despair, all help lend color to the landscape, and keep the player firmly rooted in the world before them.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=532172608

Whether you would define Dear Esther as a game or not, if you have any interest in narrative driven adventure games, you’re sure to find a new favorite here and it is without a doubt an experience you will not regret.


Verdict: 8/10
