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

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)
I still won't write English review... sorry, If I have time... I'll write one, I think...

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?

During the first 10 minutes or so of this game, while I was wandering (slowly) through the game's initial area, I was bored. Very, very bored. While I was bored there was a pretentious British guy babbling to me in an overwrought poetic manner about something that had happened and for which I had no background information to help me understand what the hell he was talking about. That changed (thankfully): the backstory filled in, the environment and audio changed, and things improved dramatically.

This game has very impressive visual and audio aesthetics. The background sounds and ambient music enhance the experience significantly (you should play with headphones on). The voice acting is also compelling--you can really feel the narrator's internal turmoil as he struggles with what has happened. The world the developers built here has a sense of mystery, purpose and beauty, but also sadness, introspection, and the portent of dread. As I progressed through the "game" I felt more and more anxious about the revelations to come from the narrator. The suspense was palpable, and was reflected in the narrator's increasingly impassioned and upset dialogue. It's quite well done. I would say this is a game targeted toward mature gamers, in the sense that it is pretty sophisticated overall.

There are a few weak points: for a 1-hour experience it's quite a bit pricey at $10 (I got it on sale); the poetic tone was good but I thought it was forced in a few places, and at times obscured the backstory; the guy walks pretty slowly (you can go into console and change that, but that kinda breaks immersion).

In retrospect, I was impatient at the beginning of the game and am very glad I pressed on. This is a very worthwhile experience. I do think $10 is a bit steep, so I'd recommend waiting til it's on sale. If you are really into artistic and experiential games, then this is definitely for you. on sale or not.

I recommend it.

A glorious piece of art telling a story through a progressive narrative. Dear Esther is an extremely moving journey of self discovery and acceptance, a truly moving narrative of a mans journey to seek peace. A game that I personally found beautiful. Dear Esther is in the top tier of essential games to play in anyones life.
