I was never a big fan of classic adventure games, though Gemini Rue did manage to grab me. While a small game, it is very well-made with a good story and voice acting. Gameplay is a bit clumsy as adventure games often are, requiring actions to be performed through an inventory menu rather than having separate keys for separate actions.

The best part about the game is the well-balanced puzzle design. One of the big pitfalls I've found with adventure games is making the puzzles too difficult to understand while others make the game so simple that there's hardly any player interaction required. This one manages to find a good balance though there are still a couple parts that get confusing. It is one of the best examples I've found outside Amanita games though.

The really big disappointment for me was the ending. I don't want to spoil anything but the ending just didn't make sense to me. I like how the story ended up, but the way it was done just didn't seem right.

In any case, it's a high quality adventure game that doesn't succumb to common adventure game pitfalls. Don't expect amazing artwork though, being made in an ancient adventure game engine with very low resolution, low bit depth color graphics.

Rating: 8.5/10
Status: Awesome

What is it?
A traditional point and click adventure game

The Good:
+ A dark gritty sci fi atmosphere.
+ A great story with good voice acting and dialogue
+ The majority of the puzzles are good and fit the story nicely
+ Fantastic music that fits the atmosphere

The Bad:
- Some of the puzzles require "pixel hunting" May need a walkthrough in some parts
- May be a bit short for some people
- Their is cover based shooting segments in this game and it feels very clunky luckily there isn't a whole lot of them and are relatively easy if you know what you are doing

Conclusion
If you are looking for an old school point and click adventure game than look no further. This game despite its problems had me hooked and I couldn't wait to find out what happens next. Game reminded me of Beneath a steal sky.

Excellent noir atmosphere, it's full of Blade Runner references, including some Cowboy Bebop aswell. The story catch you in a way that you won't sleep before unravel it all. The scenarios are dark, perfectly made, voiceovers are perfect and the rain... Man, the rain. A bunch of pixel particles falling over my screen never meant so much.

This game could be easily compared to a perfect snowflake. It surrounded by similar ones by each side, appearing to be "one more of the same", it's small, it's fragile, but a careful look will reveal its perfection and uniqueness.

Gemini Rue is a result of only one guy's work and worth every dollar/real/pound/dinar you put in it. Buying it on a sale is a no-brainer. I really mean it.

A masterpiece of its own kind, this point and click adventure has only one flaw, its length. The game is short, very short, like the very nature of the snowflakes from my example, melting into nothing (water, actually :D). So short that makes you beg for more like a guy smashing a door of a Krispy Kreme at 2 AM for one more sugar shot before bed.

I really hope that this great game comes into your library someday.

I highly recommend this game. Played through it twice once in normal mode and once in commentary mode which has some hilarious bloopers in there. The graphics are oldschool but to me that was part of the charm to this game. Storywise this game was great and always made you want to keep playing to see how it unfolded.

In short if you like adventure games then get this game if you haven't already.

8/10

One of the most atmospheric games I have played in recent years. The story is great - and this is what this game is all about.

It is a game which takes itself seriously. If you haven't notived by the visuals already, this is not your usual Monkey Island type of adventure. Compared to comic books, this could be entitled graphic novel.

The voice actors are very well chosen, as they deliver the atmosphere very well. Looking at the graphics, they are for sure not high-res SSAO 2xAA 3D whatnot. But that doesn't matter, the 2D pixels are perfect for this game.

The puzzles are most of the time very well thought through, but I must admit that I've taken a peek into the walkthrough sometimes, as I got impatient following the story as I couldn't figure out the solution fast enough.

I havent noticed any bug, so kudos to QA as well.
