Beautiful graphic style and gripping, fascinating storyline. It ends somewhat abruptly but other than that it was amazing.

Equivalent t a book that I couldn't put down- I started it quite late, intending to just look at the first few minutes and 5 hours later, at 6 in the morning, I finished it. Thanks for a great game!

-The recorded playtime is wrong- I played this for almost exactly 5 hours

This game seems to be the victim of a budget shortage. It starts well enough, but as it reaches a point of tension, it just... stops. I can only think that they simply ran out of money and shipped what they had, because it's just unacceptable as it is now. Also, the "alter ego" of the title never even comes up in the game at all.

Yeah, when a game:
1. Is utterly bland and hasn't really got interesting after 5 hours of playtime (apparently, though I idled with this open a lot... because it's boring)
2. Has mundane, pointless puzzles that mostly involve "did you remember to get such and such from before because you need it now" or "hit the button that shows all hotspots, puzzle solved".
3. Has windowed issues, to the point where I had to restart my computer more than once because it froze up and took my mouse cursor with it.

It is neither worth my time or the effort it takes to play. I've tried to be the least bit interested in this for over two weeks now, and... nothing. There is no reason to buy this game, there are so many better adventure games out there.

This is not a yes, it's at best a "maybe". If it's discounted and/or you're a big fan of slow, linear point&click adventures of the detective mystery variety, and if you come to it with low expectations, it can offer you some entertaining hours.

It's obviously a low budget game, technically lacking, very linear, quite old-fashioned, with logical puzzles that offer zero challenge but also zero frustration. And I use the world puzzles very liberally here, most of the time you point, you click, the story moves on. It is also very sloooooow. Seriously, everything is slow: the story, the movements of the characters, the time it takes for clicks to register - this is one for people with patience, and if you can't deal with that stay well away, you'll hate it.

The overall atmosphere is probably the best part of this game. The other big positive for me is the attempt to describe the detective process in a relatively "realistic" way for the police detectives of the era, or at least their fictional counterparts. I found the characters entertaining, however they're both rather antiheroes than heroes, and not always portrayed in a positive light, and I expect not everyone will like that. The visuals are allright and fit the mood, the sound is barely there but not annoying and the voice acting is decent enough for this kind of budget. The story itself isn't good, isn't bad. Imagine a paperback period detective mystery, a bit of a guilty pleasure with no real substance. However, the ending is bafflingly unfulfilling. The game ends very abrubtly right in the thick of things - I actually thought I hit a bug. That alone may have warranted a downvote, but truth be told I had very low expectations of this game, and the hours I spent with it were pleasurable, so my approach was... oh well, I had fun while it lasted.

Conclusion: There are tones of better point & clicks out there. But if you like these types of games and get it cheap, this is not a bad way to spend a relaxed summer afternoon. Think cold drink in one hand, mouse in the other, minimal thinking required. ;)

I recommend playing through this game but be prepared for a really lame and disappointing ending.

This game plays like Still Life. It's not a puzzle point-and-click, it's a murder mystery, with evidence to collect and use. You play as two different characters, providing two different points of views and adventures. The voice acting was well done, the story (for most of the game) was interesting and engaging, and the difficulty of the game was minimal.

I'm also not a fan of the title and cover art... it's very misdleading. I kept waiting for it to make sense, and in my opinion, it never did.

In Alter Ego, you play as two characters in the backdrop of late 19th Century England. There are ghastly murders happening, and in this point and click adventure, you will help to solve this case.


The character models are fairly well done for a low budget adventure game. They do somewhat clash with the backgrounds, at times not really seeming to actually be in the environment, but more like actors in front of a green screen. The videos are decently made, but the action and animation can look a little silly at times.

Character movement can be really slow and plodding. Luckily you can double click to run to areas. However, every time you interact with an object the animations always feel like they take a little too long. Voice acting is not great, but also not in the so bad it's good category, so it's just kind of mediocre. It won't take you out of the story, but it won't do much for you. Puzzles are not too difficult thanks to the option to highlight all interactive items in the scene.

I did not find the characters you play as or encounter to be terribly interesting. The dialogue sounds a bit awkward at times. The story wasn't really gripping, and unfortunately, about two hours in, I lost my save. I was not having enough fun and did not care enough about the story to make it through that progress again.

There are better point and click adventure games out there. If you get this in a bundle, try it out for a few minutes to see if the story interests you. The setting can be fun, as seen in the Sherlock Holmes games, but I found the story to be a bit lacking.

Grade: D+

Very poor storyline. The puzzles for this game is pretty logical for the most part, but the story itself is pretty bland. The two main characters that you play are thoroughly unenjoyable, and the ending is very bad. If there had been a sequel to this game, then I can understand as to how they thought ending the game the way they did was a good idea.

The ending provides no resolution. The story is incredibly boring. All of the interesting things happen to be described to you at the end. Just not a good story at all. If you want an adventure game to play and like the puzzles, play this game. Otherwise, the very bad story will bore you immensely.

Was a pretty average / good adventure game up until they apparently ran out of money, and you just get a game over screen.

Just finished it and I wanted to warn people that want to buy this game.

I would not consider this game "good" but decent. It could easily have been a great title but there are many things very wrong or badly done (mostly because of budget I suppose) like the cinematics and certain animations that are "lifeless" and feels very awkward. But in a point-and-click it isn't a main problem, what you want is a good narration and some mystery to solve. And it delivers in that regard with some really good design of places at the 19th century. I was surprised at how invested I was after a couple hours but that's mostly because I love this style of game and can put aside any type of gameplay to focus on the story. Which has many problems and holes (again probably budget) but still holds up for a decent story.

I still recommand this game but certainly not for 20$ and certainly not to anyone. You must be very patient and already like this style of game. It is better after the first hour but don't expect too much. You should almost buy this with an intent to know how can this type of game can go right and wrong as it is very obvious in this one.

I would say up to 5, maybe 10$ it isn't a steal, but only if you know what you're getting into.

Just finished this game. I'm a fan of slow point and click games and I must say, I really enjoyed its classic feel and realstic detective approach. most "gamers" wont like this game, but it offers a great story and enviroment, which is what I play games for. That ending sure was unsatisfying doe

Very great and well done Point-and-Click game.
Has great memorable characters, nicely done scenes, and a great interesting storyline.
Only negative thing I have about it is the ending, which was very unsatisfying.

A very linear adventure game but worth playing if you can get it cheap. Nothing memorable but quite immersive as you play it. A typical 6/10 modern adventure.

This game has one of the most ambiguous endings. I wonder what's next even knowing that there's no sequel yet. And it's the worst feeling about the game.

It is wonderful that there are still really entertaining games you can find in this genre. Fans of adventures should try to solve the riddles about Sir William's corpse who was a supected serial killer in life. When his body disappears, people in town start to disappear.

Seems like a good game at first, graphics are ok, the setting is quite dark and mysterious but all of this can't hide the fact that this game is bad. The puzzles are easy (too easy for most people) and the story ends when it gets exciting. Unless there is follow-up to this game i can only say: stay away from this game, it's not worth it.

Good "cops & robbers" adventure with nice art, voice acting and a serious tone.
BUT the ending is rushed and the plot is abandoned. It just stops. Very disappointing.
