I was eyeing this game for a long time, and when the price was only around $1.50 CD I snapped it up.

I was glad I had, as I really enjoyed the game, (I had no idea that it was by the same developers as Black Mirror!)

Many good reviews have been written so I will only say that it's really too bad about the ending.
It is most probable that they'd run out of money...
edited; Yes Gingergal I too prefered black mirror ! :)

Title: Alter Ego
Genre: Adventure
Developer: bitComposer Games
Publisher: Viva Media
Release Date: 3rd August 2010

TL;DR, Verdict

Not bad, very slow paced. Good for those who like the point and click adventure genres, not good for those starting out in it. I think it's too expensive for what it is. If it was cheaper, it would be probably more worth a recommend.

Pros

Detailed environments – lots of little things to look at
Voice acting is nice, Irish and English accents!

Cons

Really slow paced

Gameplay

“Can you climb, naked man?” A point and click puzzle game, your character starts by escaping from a prison via a sewage/flood system, looking remarkably clean, if a little naked and handcuffed. He's a thief accosted by English constables, in a time where racial tensions between the Irish and English are at an all time high. When he picks up objects, they mysteriously disappear into his pants, and some of the animations are very slow ... and the character does have a slight habit of over explaining his actions during a successful “puzzle”, which could get annoying after a while. Yes smash the lock. No need to go further into it.

The character has a habit of reminding himself he can't do things or that something happened, or thinking that people are simple and how he needs to manipulate them – attributing to his thief-like character of dubious morals. Who also really dislikes hard work. Or work that requires effort in general. He's not a nice guy for sure, though entertaining in the way he interacts with people. You'll either like him or hate his guts. He seems to try and get around the game with his silver tongue. The dialogue between him and the woman who helps him out at the start is a little unbelievable, it progresses too conveniently. The accents are nice to listen to, though the main character is a little flat toned. But hey! Irish accents. It's very dialogue heavy so you'll spend a lot of time talking with characters and going through each talk option.

The environments are well rendered, they're not amazing but thought and detail has gone into it, from dirty basins to rust and pots and pans and objects lying around everywhere, giving the appearance of a run down, shabby and poor area. It's dilapidated and grimy, the less glamorous side of the Victorian style era, and this same level of detail persists in each scene you go into.

The game itself is a little too slow paced for me, things take too long to interact with, so I fast start losing interest in the adventure, despite the good environment, potential intriguing plot and interesting voice actors with their own quirks.

The game seemed interesting at first, despite it's annoying tendancy to rule out simple solutions to problems based on your character being an ♥♥♥. Do not be tempted.

The mystery behind the game seemed fascinating - it wasn't. at all.

Everything about this game was an unbelivable letdown.
