The focus of this game is a moving, post-apocalyptic story. Two people are locked up together in a world covered with ice, and Alice tells how she got there, and so you are able to play as Alice during each part of her story.
This is a mature and very sad story, with very strong and heart wrenching questions, so do not expect anything cheerful.
Simple point and click interface, with only the left and right mouse buttons to interact or the ENTER button in the keyboard to skip conversations (hold to skip faster). Simple puzzles that make sense and are logical, but not very challenging. I only got stuck once, because I did not know what I was supposed to do.
Amazing sound effects that make you feel the bleakness of the environment. Really good!
Voice: None, only subtitles for dialogs
Simple but functional, not a problem for a story-focused game like this. Just make sure you configure the game (setup) before launching to play it in fullscreen and use Directx 3D 9. You'll need to copy and paste the game's exe file ("richardandalice.exe") and rename the copy as "richardandalice_steam_final.exe". Then just click on the game through steam and choose setup while starting it to uncheck "Run in a window instead of Fullscreen" and change the Graphics Driver to Directx 3D 9.
Very well written for an indie game, it makes you want to know what is going to happen next. There are many possible endings, and it was not hard to get them all with a guide, after I was finished with the game. By the way, I recommend saving in the beginning of each scene to help you come back later for the other endings.
This is a great game if you like story rich games that make you think and get involved with the game world. If you want hard puzzles, fast action or shining graphics, look elsewhere.
