这个游戏,很难说好还是差,因为好的地方真的很棒,而差的地方,也相当糟糕。

先说好的地方。

游戏画面相当精美,游戏音乐也很到位,特别是语音,是为数不多的冒险类游戏的良心作品,这一点直逼日本GAL。特别是场景的转换,利用多卷轴造成的速度差,可以明显感觉到一个立体的空间。漂浮文字的淡入淡出和过度特效的模糊处理,让人感觉真的很赞。

再说糟糕的地方。

如果作为一款小说游戏,这游戏原著相当多的内容,在很多时候,都是以文字浮空讲故事的形式来一笔带过。不免有些遗憾。

如果作为一款文字AVG(Gal),其中操作系统也过于蛋疼。首先对话不能跳过,如果按enter,那么就会跳过一整段对话或者好几段文字。如果你按鼠标左键,就会出现一个禁止图标,而这个禁止图标,不偏不倚正好覆盖在字幕上。

最让人难受的是,游戏中的特效处理相当的耗时,可以说,一段文字,你用10s来阅读,然后又用5s去等待特效的过度,而且语音部分也相当让人焦躁,为了体现出很好的语音带入感,对话中有很多都是带感情阅读的,而这个信息量,你甚至是5s的时间来阅读文字,然后用10s的时间来等待文字读完,而且你在这个过程中完全不能跳过。

当然,游戏中存在着一些小QTE,虽然没啥时间限制,但是这个QTE很多时候真的有点莫名其妙而且累赘。

对于游戏的搭配,更是让人头疼,有时候甚至会在人物对话中飘出浮空文字,而这个浮空文字是存在于任何地方的,也就是说,你经常看着下方的字幕来理解对话,然后又在画面中上,上左什么的地方飘出一段浮空文字,短时间这么看挺好,但这是一部文字游戏,时间累积长了,真的非常非常累人。

总结一下,这是一款画面异常精美,效果十分到位,但是操作体验感差到爆表的游戏。这更像是一个非常有实力的游戏工作室第一次做的AVG,然后努力的把各种系统穿插在整个游戏中的作品。

其实不是游戏,是一本带插图的有声小说。
手绘的插画非常的精美,几乎每个场景都能截下来当桌面壁纸,里面的皮影小电影蛮好玩的。
台词念白,大概是是"书虫系列"的英文水平,不过英式口音和英式句子味儿比较重。
作为Hitchcock和Rockwell的粉丝, 本作还真是深得我心。

成就指南:跟着剧情走完就能全成就,有字幕的时候,一直点方向右键,需要选择的时候鼠标选中菱形。

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.

Thats how some books in modern time may be presented. I dont like the plot though. "Its a pure Sir Henry Rider Haggard and Conan Doyle", very childish story without meanings. All what these gentlemans do is drink whskies-and-sodas and smoke. "I smoked in a vhsir till daylight, for i couldnt sleep". Nice voice and language perfomances with some scottish accent.

The 39 Steps is an interactive crime story adapted from a book.

So you might be not challenged clicking through a text adventure, but otherwise everything is well made. The graphics are painted nearby realistic landscapes uncommon to other comic adventures. There are several historical pictures included. The story takes place in 1914, a few weeks before WW1 breaks out. You are searching for a conspirancy that leads to the upcoming events.

There are rarely search screens during the whole story, but sometimes also a nice gesture function is used. Mostly it's very atmospheric. Only the characters are shown as outlined ghosts. I liked the most when somebody was telling yarn. Then an artistical silhouette movie appeared. The language voices of the characters differs from British English, German, Scottish accent to French accent.

In the end it was getting hard to unlock all awards for the last achievement. But with a little help of the community you mustn't be desperated ...

As many of the people who have played this game will state that its more of an interactive novel rather than a game and a bloody good one too!A good novel is the one in which you are completely engrossed and you feel it the environment,the characters and the emotions.This game just does that by depicating the scene in form of a backround picture,playing the appropriate background music for the situation and there is actual conversation and narration in important parts.The whole experience is top notch and I would recommend it to all those who love reading novels.Even you if don't like novels then please try to pick it up when lord gabon gives you discounts! :D

Enjoyed it a lot!

The 39 Steps is an animated, illustrated espionage-novel with sounds, music and linear narration - and without any real choices for the "player" during the whole story. So don't expect a full pc game, but instead anticipate a classic digital novel adaption, which totally knows how to entertain the audience.
You'll find yourself in an authentic England of 1914 and you'll be able to enjoy wonderfully painted illustrations.
All actions one is able to do are: examining various objects, clicking at things, or moving the cursor from time to time into specified directions to simulate actions, like for example running away, shaving, building explosive devices, opening doors, etc. And it works - and raises the level of immersion during the narration.

It looks great, the atmosphere feels great and the narration has a fluent feeling to it. Plus it's easy to get the 100%-achievements just along the way.
Altogether its an exciting, enthralling Spy Fiction Story with a lot of moments of suspense! Couldn't have asked for more.

I recommend it for relaxed autumn evenings, when reading is just the perfect thing to do.

The 39 Steps is a virtual novel with very little interaction. It is 100% impossible to get stuck on this game, because you've got to left click through text or objects (with a big diamond-shaped icon right in the middle of every objects), or simply do a series of left, down, up, right, clockwise or counter-clockwise mouse movements for every single puzzles in the game.

The only part of this game I liked, are the voice acting and graphics, especially the graphics, they are truly amazing! Though, the important aspect of a virtual novel is the story and in the case of "The 39 Steps" I didin't understand much of the story, it kinda ruined it for me. Now i've got to say, my first language isn't english, but I really couldn't understand the beginning of the story. I also couldn't understand any british dialogues, because they were all slang. Some parts were also in German, with no translation what-so-ever.

Another complaint about this game, is how the game is saved. The ''chapters'' takes about 15 minutes each, but if you want to alt-tab (probably a bug) or quit the game, you might have or might not have to restart that chapter all over again. This made me replay at least 3 chapters (which, by the way, you cannot skip any text or cutscenes) and effectively made me watch all of the dialogues and cutscenes again.

I am quite disapointed with this "game" so I cannot recommend it. If you were going to purchase this virtual novel, I really hope you understand english very well and don't mind not being able to have any influence in the story nor have any puzzles to solve at all while playing this.

This game is pretty good. Visual novel really did a good job to portray Richard Hannay's character in this game. Expect nail biting scenes as the main character tries to escape from a crime he didn't commit. Witness the escalating tension between French and German as he discovered the truth that must be silenced immediately while Richard Hannay tries to outwit his pursuers in an adventure packed game.

The art style is kinda good (mostly at the beautiful landscapes). The voice acting was pretty normal. A video rarely comes but that is certainly acceptable because what's important is the immersion to the story wherein the subtitles and acting did a good job.

Perhaps a visual novel is not my cup of tea as I find The 39 Steps rather boring. I'm a bookworm but I disliked how I can't bookmark the game progress at will, so have to re-watch cutscenes that can't be skipped. To avoid that, I finished one chapter at a time, often falling asleep or wishing I was playing other games in the process.

On a positive note, the art is gorgeous and the voice acting is good. The gameplay itself was quite dull though.

Got this in a Humble Bundle for less than a dollar, and although I haven't finished it yet I can say that even if you are into weird random artsy interactive story things, wait for a similarly steep sale before you consider picking it up. It's a point-and-click, and a very modest one at that; most of it is reading, although it's balanced by good pacing of introducing new visual and interactive elements. I happen to like the plot because it reminds me of Agatha Christie's Poirot stories, but you may find it a little cliche if you regularly read/watch/consume mysteries and political thrillers.

The most important thing is that this is a "visual novel", not your typical game or graphic adventure.

Once you realize that, it's a very good adaptation. If you have not read the book, here you have the chance to do so, with sometimes more information about the historical context, etc.

The level of interaction is minimal, you just click to make the text go on, open doors and some actions, but it is enough because the main objective is that you read the novel.

As a visual novel, recommended.

I didn't read the actual novel itself, but this adaptation is superb. The acting, the atmosphere and the art - all of it is very beautiful indeed. The credits soundtrack is a beaut too.
Might as well start reading the novel.

I liked this experience. A lot. There are just static screens, text and limited interactions, but it has absolutely amazing atmosphere. The presentation is limited, but sufficient. Voice acting is great and keeps you interested all the time. I can't call 39 Steps a game, but rather interactive story. It's well done. If you like books - especially detective stories, then it's something you will enjoy.
I would love to see similar releases on Steam.

Playing through the whole story took me close to 4 hours, and having paid £0.99 for the game when it was on sale, I found it to be unbelievable value for money.
It's a hard game to praise, or criticise, as it's not really a "game" in the traditional sense at all. Self styled as a Digital Adaptation, it has varying levels of interactivity, but plenty of depth.
Although I can't really praise the game makers for the story, I can say that it is beautifully exicuted.

My one complaint is a really daft set of sequences where you need to draw shapes with the mouse in order to make Hannay do things like open doors and windows, or run. They feel awkwardly shoehorned into the game and also make it feel much more like it should have been developed for a touchscreen device.

However, this minor complaint does not take away one jot from the overall experience.

This is actually a really rather excellent little experience. It's everything you might hope it would be, from the limited description as an "interactive book". It's an atmospheric, detailed, and ultimately engaging way to enjoy a classic novel. I'm still early on in the story, but I'm already sold. It really is rather excellent.

The developers have done a great job, and you'll really enjoy devling into 1914 London. Quite frankly I hope they do some more books in the future.

It's true that you don't actually "do" all that much, but you honestly don't notice. The way you engage with the game world to reveal the story feels pretty organic. It's a bit like GONE HOME, but more honest and enjoyable.

One tip: You can pretty the left mouse button to progress if the "rotate the mouse" doesn't work for you (as it didn't work for me).

Recommended!

I am both an avid reader and gamer. Never before have a had these two interests crossover so enjoyably.

The 39 Steps, as portrayed by The Story Mechanics, is a truly gripping narrative experience based on John Buchan's famous espionage thriller. The skill in which a quite dated, albeit spectacular, written work is transformed into an interactive experience is astounding.

While following Richard Hannay on his adventures, hours turned to minutes. After a while I was neither reading a book nor playing a game but honestly "experiencing" the story for myself.

The overall tempo combined with the obvious artistic talent seen throughout this adaptation of The 39 Steps creates a digitial experience that can be enjoyed by a far broader audience than a simple book would allow. I would reccomend this game to any reader out there but also to anyone looking for a breath of fresh air, with substance.
