The 39 Steps is a digital adaption of a John Buchan's espionage thriller.
And since I don't want to spoil the story for anyone still waiting to enjoy it, I won't reveal any story details.
But I will say this, the story is brilliant and has a lot of twists and turns and will keep you hooked till the end. At least that's how I've felt.
The art in the game is absolutely gorgeous and the sound design is spot on as well. This is like reading a book, but you interact ingame with a mouse at certain situations and click objects on screen such as newspapers or items of interest. There are also times where you have to imitate real movements with a mouse ( sort of like in Fahrenheit / Indigo Prophecy if you have played that game).
There are also cards to collect and awards to unlock while playing the game, which is a nice touch for all those people like myself who enjoy collecting things.
All in all:

+ Great story
+ Beautiful art design
+ Good sound effects and acting

- If you dont like reading a lot, this game is not for you

If you are looking for a great thriller story accompanied by great art design and acting, you are going to enjoy this game. 9 / 10

One thing that I love about video games is how they can take a story I've already heard several ways, and turn it into an entirely new experience that's just as engaging as if I was hearing it for the first time. The 39 Steps by The Story Mechanics is the first in what they call "digital adaptations", which fall somewhere between a visual novel and a radio show. The idea if simple, but the execution highly stylized and the pacing tightly wound to make what could have been a dry collection of text a surprisingly compelling and intense narrative piece.

I shouldn't have to tell you what The 39 Steps is about (as I imagine most should be familiar with the classic novel and numerous film adaptions and spin-offs), but as a refresher it follows Scottish man Richard Hannay, recently retired and now lost in a series of humdrum days and occurrences. All of this changes when a stranger barges into his life and revels a German plot that if carried out could throw the world into a war the likes of which it had yet seen. Shortly thereafter the man, now revealed to a spy known as Scudder, is found dead in Hannay's apartment, leaving him the only one alive with the knowledge of what is soon to unfold, and the only person who could possibly prevent it.

While the narrative of The 39 Steps is as intriguing and thrilling as ever, it's the way that it's told in this instance that makes it worth revisiting (or checking out for the first time) as opposed to numerous other formats you could choose. The Story Mechanics haven't settled for a simple text format in retelling Josh Buschan's tale, instead using a collection of visual tricks and clever insertion of backstory to create an brilliant interactive story that far exceeds the simplistic adaptations that have been experimented with in the past. Fantastic use of camera angles, deliberate placement of text to draw your eye toward parts of the watercolor backgrounds, and excellent voice acting from all parties make it incredibly easy to get swept away in the plot even during the slower, some may even call mundane, moments.

The only real instances where The 39 Steps falls a tad flat are the awkwardly implemented gestures that sometimes accompany moments like opening doors or reading letters. They were obviously intended to make the game feel more like, well, a game, but they're shoehorned in in such a way that feels tacked on an unnecessary. Thankfully they're infrequent enough that they never amount to more than a bit of a bother nor take but a few seconds to complete.

Though some might scoff at the emphasis on exposition and almost complete lack of traditional gameplay, those that can appreciate The 39 Steps for the bit of interactive fiction it is will be rewarded with an exciting and wonderfully paced tale of spies, murder, and more than a few close shaves. Having no real idea what to expect, I was very pleasantly surprised with the end result of The Story Mechanics's first attempt at a "digital adaptation", and it has gotten my mind spinning thinking of so many other books I'd love to see turned into future games. Hopefully this is only the first to come.

Alright, just played through The 39 Steps today. Took about 4 hours all told to complete, although there was probably an hour of idle time mixed in there. Anyway, I thought it was pretty stellar. A digital adaptation of a book. They say it was the inspiration for Ian Fleming style of writing, I think it bore a lot of similarities to Hitchcock's North by Northwest (and it turns out Hitchcok did in fact do a film adaptation of 39 Steps earlier in his career) as well. A very good and interesting story set in the early 1900's. Although there aren't branching paths, I thought the game till did an excellent job of immersing you into the story completely. Sort of non traditional from a point and click perspective due to a little twist in manipulating some object. The artwork was very nice, mostly done in watercolors and more traditional painting styles as well, with some silent film style cutscenes mixed in. Definitely recommend playing this one.

The Thirthy-Nine Steps is one of the earliest and arguably most influential novel in the history of espionage thriller. The book by John Buchan, published in 1915, is now public domain which means the devs could get away with anything in this digital adaption. But what surprised me is they were extremely loyal to the plot. This digital adaption is even told in 1st person like the original work. They did not offer any changes, which can be termed as lazy. But a novel that doesn't need change shouldn't be changed anyway. Voice acting is good. Story-telling is done right. The only thing that bugged me is the lack of character "appearance" in the artwork. But that's not a big deal. Anyway, this is a good digital adaption of the novel and I highly recommend it.

Warning - Do not buy if you're looking for a game. This is NOT a game, not even a point and click game. This is basically a audio novel with some relevant artwork.

Και αυτό είναι λοιπόν το The 39 Steps. Ένα τολμηρό πείραμα με τη μορφή του e-book στον 21ο αιώνα. Με την εξαιρετική του καλλιτεχνική διεύθυνση και ατμοσφαιρική παρουσίαση, είναι μια κομψότατη εναλλακτική στην απλή παρακολούθηση μια ταινίας ή την ανάγνωση ενός «σκέτου» paperback. Παιχνίδι δεν είναι, όποιος το πλησιάσει ως τέτοιο θα απογοητευτεί, καθώς κάνει το Dear Esther να μοιάζει φεστιβάλ διαδραστικότητας. Είναι όμως εξαιρετικό σε αυτό που προσφέρει και σε βάζει σε σκέψεις. Αν οι Story Mechanics έκαναν τόσο προσεγμένη δουλειά σε αυτό τον «κλασσικό» τίτλο, σκεφτείτε τι θα μπορούσε να γίνει με αντίστοιχες μεταφορές σε έργα των H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe και γιατί όχι, Chuck Palahniuk.
