Sorti en 2013, The 39 Steps est sans doute resté dans l’ombre et l’impopularité dans le domaine du jeu vidéo.
Pourtant, cette fiction interactive nous donne de très belles images, ainsi qu’une histoire réfléchit et pertinente. Mais cette dernière est malheureusement racontée sous un anglais très soutenue, ce qui obligera certain à abandonner.
A vrai dire il n’y pas vraiment grand-chose à dire, car est-ce vraiment un jeu ?
Même si à certain moment on interagit avec le protagoniste, on a plus l’impression de lire un livre. Effectuer des figures avec la souris, et trouver des objets liés à la continuité de l’histoire, nous ne donne pas l’impression de jouer un rôle majeur. En fait, le problème avec The 39 Steps c’est que nous avons peu d’interaction.
Au final, ceux qui recherche de la lecture, et surtout de l’art visuel mélangé avec de très bonnes bandes sonores, ne réfléchissez plus, et tentez l’expérience.

“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.

Personal Rating: Had a really great experience playing it.
Classic Rating: ★★★★✬

The 39 Steps is a digital/visual adaptation of an adventure/crime novel by
John Buchan: .

✓ Excellent story and narration.
✓ Excellent voice acting (even though I'm not a native English speaker, I had a couple of good laughs listening to some Scottish side-character).
✓ Very well curated artworks and visual effects (transitions and animations).
✓ Very particular playing style, common to Visual Novels but original nonetheless.

✘ A couple of times subtitles were missing.
✘ Sometimes I had difficulties understanding words and phrases too: I know, this is my fault, not the game's one but it can be a good enough topic for non-English people to think about before buying.

Would you like to read a book while listening to characters voices, ambient sounds and background music? Would it be even better if you were able to watch it like a movie and enjoy like you were its protagonist?

If the answer to those questions is "yes", than you'll understand why "The 39 Steps" is a must to play game.

The 39 Steps is a famous adventure thriller novel by John Buchan that released in 1915. This novel had several movie adaptation, and the first movie adaptation directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935. And this game is a digital adaptation of John Buchan's novel, it is different to compared to another Visual Novel games. This game is not like that.

I like The Story Mechanics treatment about this game, they presentation of this game made me feel that I watch a thriller movie than playing a game. The storytelling is masterpiece. The soundtrack is very good, it blend with the atmosphere of the scene and sometimes made me nervous about the next scene. The voice acting is superb, especially english gaelic accent of the scotslands peoples.

Well, this digital adaptation is an alternative way to read a famous literature, I'll hope The Story Mechanics made another adaptation of famous literature by famous writer. And I'm highly recommended this game to anyone interested in good storytelling games.
