Um livro completo em formato de Jogo

'The 39 Steps' é totalmente baseado em um livro com o mesmo nome publicado em 1915, que justamente conta a história de Hannay, um ex-militar e magnata no ramo de mineração que estava tendo uma vida parada e trivial em Londres até que certo dia recebe uma visita inesperada de um homem misterioso, que diz ser um espião americano e ter informações importantes relacionadas ao início da Primeira Guerra Mundial; sem contar muita coisa, o homem é assassinado dias depois dentro da casa de Hannay, que agora se vê perseguido pela polícia e pelos assassinos do espião, sendo obrigado a partir em uma aventura de rumo desconhecido apenas com um livro cheio de enigmas deixado pelo americano. Quais os segredos guardados por trás dos manuscritos do livro? Quem são os verdadeiros inimigos? O que eles de fato querem? Como Hannay conseguirá sair dessa e provar sua inocência? Bom... Essas e outras questões só serão respondidas ao jogar e mergulhar nesta incrível trama.

Além de um enredo incrível, o jogo segue fielmente os acontecimentos do livro e contam de forma animada cada capítulo da trajetória de Hannay em busca de revelações sobre como proceder. O gráfico é bonito, mas como a maioria dos jogos point click se resume em ''desenhos''; nem sempre há cenas de fato animadas, porém os desenhos são realmente belos e paisagens incríveis são exibidas durante a história. Os personagens, em contrapartida, não possuem traços e detalhes, mas apenas sombreados deixando a aparência à mercê de nossa imaginação.

A qualidade de áudio não deixa a desejar, as vozes foram gravadas de modo magnífico, digno de cinema, dá para sentir as emoções dos personagens somente pelas falas; a ambientação também não é das piores, e as músicas são ótimas, não é sempre que um jogo deste estilo apresenta uma trilha sonora tão bem feita quanto a presente em ''39 Steps''. Como eu costumo dizer é como se você estivesse acompanhando um filme interativo, o qual você não pode alterar os eventos e nem interferir nos acontecimentos, mas apenas assistir e se impressionar com cada cena.

Um possível ponto negativo é que o jogo está disponível apenas em inglês pelo que parece, porém isso só vai ser um empecilho se você não tiver noção nenhuma da língua, pois há legendas (em inglês) durante todo o tempo, e eu pude compreender a história inteira mesmo não tendo noção avançada em inglês. Antes de escrever a análise, fui checar o resumo do enredo na wikipedia inglesa apenas para confirmar se eu tinha entendido tudo certo, e sim, peguei todos os pontos importantes da história mesmo tendo deixado passar detalhes menores que na verdade não mudaram quase nada no meu entendimento.

Finalizando, recomendo este jogo pela rica história que apresenta apesar do início ser meio chato e parado, a partir do terceiro capítulo tudo muda repentinamente e a trama passa a te prender à tela até o final. A jogabilidade é simples, basta clicar com o botão esquerdo para avançar e interagir com alguns objetos dos cenários; se por algum motivo você sair ou mudar de janela, basta apertar o botão direito do mouse para retirar o ''pause'', eu achava que tinha que recomeçar a fase cada vez que tirasse do jogo por voltar ao menu, mas não, basta tirar do pause. Ah... E sobre as conquistas, são fáceis de obter, basta interagir com tudo e selecionar todas as opções de conversa para uma conquista, as outras 19 são ganhas por completar os 19 capítulos.

Original example of how a novel can be transformed into a game

The 39 Steps is a unique interactive visual novel, developed by The Story Mechanics and first released on Steam in april 2013. The game is based on the novel with the same title by John Buchan, which got quite well-known thanks to its being the inspiration for Ian Flemmings James Bond books. The novel tels the story of Richard Hannay, a bored-to-death gentleman who all of a sudden finds himself in the eye of an espionage storm. Buchans story has its flaws: some plot-turns come across as unbelievable, but the characters are drawn very fine indeed, as is the time period against which the plot evolves.

Buchans novel is followed very closely in the game, which does an excellent job in transferring the overall feel and atmosphere of the period and place during which the action takes place: London, Scotland and the English countryside early summer 1914, just before the outbreak of the First World War. The developers achieved this by using a brilliantly designed and executed visual style, with a lot of hand-drawn images.

Actually, the story is told in several different ways, all with their own level of interaction. The narrative part of the novel is being projected on the screen, with the player having to click through the different lines. But the game manages to introduce variety even in this simple mechanic: the tempo of the clicking varies: sometimes a screen is held onto longer, while at other times clicks has to done much faster. Dialogues are being voice-acted in a very convincing way, some self-contained stories are even being projected as short movies. There is some point-and-clicking too, although this is allways clearly indicated and not designed as a challenge or puzzle. All in all, the variety in interaction between player and game helps a lot to draw one into the story.

The awesome visuals and interesting storytelling are accompanied by a soundscape that mostly stays in the background, punctuating some important actions without drawing any attention to itself. A bit more of these, and a more convincing musical envelopment would have painted the period even better I believe. But this is only a minor quibble. More problematic are the click-and-drag actions one has to perform to unlock doors or achieve other minor tasks. These feel tucked on, and do not integrate well within the overall concept.

Highly recommended to anyone interested in visual novels, in literature or in artistic games in general. It's a real shame this development studio hasn't released any more games yet.

“I believe everything out of the common. The only thing to distrust is the normal.” ― John Buchan, The 39 Steps

The Thirty-Nine Steps is originally an adventure novel and an ancestor of the spy thriller genre, written by the Scottish author John Buchan in 1915 - the first year of the World War I. It has long been reinterpreted into various other media - including Alfred Hitchcock's famous 1935 silver screen interpretation. But it is the first time we see Buchan's famous action-hero, Richard Hannay in a video game, thanks to Story Mechanics' initiative with a project of reinterpreting literature as narrative video games.

Here at the start of his adventures, Richard Hannay is a wealthy and able English gentleman with considerable social standing. He was raised in South Africa, became a successful mining engineer and took part in the Matabele Wars. He also served as an intelligence officer during the Boer War. He is realistic, self-sufficient with a diverse set of skills and means. Just before the events of the game, Hannay returns to London, only to find the routine life of a Londoner to be devastatingly boring. Just as he was about to give up on the capital, he is visited by one of his neighbors at his apartment in London. The neighbor reveals himself to be Franklin P. Scudder, a freelance spy and asks Hannay's help with a dangerous political plot. Finding himself in a web of lies and intrigue, Hannay quickly becomes the target of a manhunt, and starts his escape towards the Highlands of Scotland. Will he ever be able to clean his name and prevent a dangerous plot that would spell doom for all Europe?

The 39 Steps is a retelling of the original novel without nearly any content cut down. The atmosphere is a wondrous success weaved out of water color environments, characters displayed as foggy silhouettes and tales that belong to characters reenacted by shadowy silent motion pictures. The display is wholly elegant and thrilling, appropriate for the tone of the narration. Voice acting is marvelous - with nuances, accents and even vocal exclamations. For the part of the presentation, you are in for a feast.

As for the gameplay, on the other hand, the same cannot be said. Yes, the game is basically a visual novel but the player's participation in the narration is close to non-existent. The game could even be categorized as non-interactive considering all you actually do is some clicking to do to reveal environmental details or some mouse movements to draw certain shapes for Hannay to interact with things now and then. There is nothing you actually do, decide or participate in. You click and watch as the story unravels. On that part, one could actually prefer reading the novel rather than playing the game, but the amount of labor put into display is certainly admirable.

For the last verdict, I'll bite and recommend The 39 Steps, considering newer generations prefer watching the story through a screen rather than actually reading it. You just have to know what you are getting yourselves into before buying it. The 39 Steps is not a game; it is a beautifully arranged digital story book, and one that I can safely recommend if you are unfamiliar with the novel and/or bear no intention of reading it.
