"This is a fine piece of work. It's a Lucas Arts style adventure game set in a Blade-Runner world with all the sci-fi conspiranoia you might want."

About This Game

Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.

As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.

Blade Runner inspired adventure game with somewhat clunky controls. Gemini Rue is mostly narrative driven, and in order to avoid spoilers I am just saying that it was nice sci-fi short-story material and managed to keep my attention til the end.

It has to be noted that the noir-ish atmosphere the game creates in places is quite excellent, it is almost relaxing in a way - was quite nice to come home from work and do some off-world detective work.

On the downside: puzzles and controls have a slight tendency to be annoying. I enjoyed the limited amount of locations, I quickly felt "at home" - but this also ment plenty of backtracking through "known" locations all the time because there are some unfortunate moments when new items / people spawn once certain conditions are met. The game tries its best in providing hints and feedback through the characters to give you a sense of direction, but it could have been smoother in places. Same goes for the actual interface, the right-click combined actions/inventory felt outdated and clunky especially in one or two spots where certain functions weren't explained very well (at all?) . Still, this is nothing a quick glance at a walkthrough cannot solve and shouldn't stop you from checking out this fun little sci-fi story.

At the end of the day, this is proper Wadjet Eye quality and a worthy addition to your collection. If you enjoyed their other, earlier releases, you will enjoy Gemini Rue.

Excellent game. I really enjoyed the story, the voice acting and the additional elements to point & click. The story is really intriguing and despite the minimal graphics, the game is able to create a great immersive atmosphere. Puzzles were a few times hard to solve - or better said - find out what to do next - but overall very satisfying.
I didn't expect such a great experience from this little game =] Definitely worths the price.

Wadjet Eye Games as done it again with yet another point-and-click puzzle adventure.
I feel no rue for have gotten this games as the game looks and feels amazing, plus the even included the crew from Cowboy bebop.
The storyline is quite good and will catch your hungry eyes from the very beginning, the soundtrack/FX are super good.
The combat system is definitely unique, and i know i know, "i´ve heard this so many times before dood" you say, but trust me, its really REALLY unique, and very odd too, but in time you´ll find it quite amusing.
As i try not to spoil much, you play as Azriel Odin, later taking control of Delta-Six and Sayuri to fight against Center 7, a rehab center where top criminals go, later to have their memories erased and rehabilitated as a new person, with a new name, new past and a new job, but things dont go as the old Director from Center 7 wants it too.
But to truly know the entire epicness of this game, you have to dive yourself in this epic space adventure to know more, you wont feel any rue.
The game is on sale and it waiting for you.

Gemini Rue is a mix of classic 2d gameplay, great storyline and good investigation type elements.
You will get entertained by the story and be surprised as new facts are revealed about it and their protagonists, so if got some extra money laying around, Gemini Rue is a good option.
