"Is this even a game? I dont think so.... Its a very atmospheric experience though."

O tej grze

“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.


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

I really enjoyed Dear Esther. Whether it be the beautiful visuals, the powerful ambient music or the in-depth analysis into the human mind. Dear Esther has it all.

I was perplexed upon reaching The Caves, it's truly stunning at what can be achieved within the parameters of the Source engine.

I'd consider this as more of an artistic experience than a game. I found myself questioning so much during my playthrough and for that, I'm thankful for such a wonderful journey.

Genre: Adventure/Walking Simulator
Release Date: February 14, 2012

This 'game' truly is an artistic masterpiece. Being a walking simulator, the aim is simple; you walk around an island, taking in it's beautiful surroundings. The protagonist of this 'game' is a man set on a journey across a seemingly abandoned island. As you walk, fragments of a letter sound, and you're left with questions, allowing your imagination to run rampant. Who is Esther, and why does this quiet island resonate such familiarity with our protagonist? Are the surroundings real, or imagined? Abandoned buildings, caves and shipwrecks, this island brings forth an eerie yet calming atmosphere, and the raw emotion is exemplified with the stunning atmospheric soundtrack.

The graphics are absolutely beautiful, and there is no lack of stunning landscape and imagery throughout the hour and a half (give or take) of game play. However, to call it a game would be entirely misleading; Dear Esther is more of a immersive movie, taking you on a beautifully narrated story around a mysterious island.

As the graphics are generally a main focus in a walking simulator (being that there's no real 'game play'), it's super important that they get this right- which they did, perfectly. The only negative thing I could say on the visuals of this artistic masterpiece, is that it ended too soon.
Score: 8/10

The beautiful instrumental soundtrack, composed by the talented Jessica Curry specifically for this game, has a tranquil, soothing vibe that really adds to the feel of the story. Add to that the calming narration by Nigel Carrington, and you're set to go on a relaxing and encapsulating first person experience.

The beautifully orchestrated soundtrack perfectly fits the mysterious and engrossing story line, filling the story with a soothing atmosphere.
Score: 9/10

Overall Verdict
This visually appealing game is definitely worth experiencing if you like peaceful games with a rich storyline.

Overall Score: 8/10

It's a poem where you get to walk in it. It's short so it won't have any chance to bore. It looks great, music is absolutely awesome and it makes you think and comment on it (while you're alone in your room, talking to yourself)

If you have the patience of someone who even can't stand game intros (you idiots) stay away. Otherwise take a walk, listen to the wind and see the reflections of an old man on a beautiful island.

I want the reader to completely understand that I do fully recommend Dear Esther.
Even though I don't have any idea what it can be defined as.

To call Dear Esther a "walking simulator" is unfair.
However calling it a video game is also unfair.

A game is: "A competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more opponents who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators."

Dear Esther contains no rules to follow or games of chance. It offers no opportunity to use any physical or mental endurance. There are no skills to learn, nor opponents that would attempt to prevent you from achieving any progress.

So how would I define Dear Esther? I would call it what it is.
An exploration of a digitally constructed island.

Lets be honest, that is what you are getting with this title.
You stroll around a gorgeous island with beautifully rendered scenery.
The experience is also wonderfully complimented by a soothing soundtrack and eerily haunting dialog.

My hope is that players will enjoy this thing of beauty.
Which is why I won't go into detail about what you will see or hear.
You simply need to experience it for yourself.

I just want people to understand what they are buying.
Dear Esther is a walk in the park.
