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.

I would highly recommend Gemini Rue for someone looking for a game in the vain of Snatcher and Blade Runner. I was hooked from the get go, the dialogue was great, the puzzles where logical and didn't have insane solutions to them, the atomosphere was amazing and the game didn't suffer from any serious pacing issues.

5 out of 5.

Really great. I give them props for getting a combat system into the engine (though it's not super deep). An interesting story with good settings and characters. To be honest, I felt it was a little longer than it needed to be. There was some unnecessary backtracking in my opinion. Still a really good experience though!

Gemini Rue is a non-linear adventure game that succeeds in narrating a compelling story. It uses the topics of identity and nature in order to tell the profound parallel story of one Delta-Six and Azriel Odin. 7 hours in and I am left dumbfounded by this masterpiece.

After finishing the game, here are a few things I liked about it..

- Excellent voice acting. Shelly Smith-Shenoy who plays one of the female roles does an excellent job of playing an innocent and insightful individual.

- Deep concept. The game plays with fire by toying with the idea of something as profound as identity. It opens up a lot of possibilities right from the moment of the opening scene.

- Interesting puzzle presentation. Some of the puzzles in this game put an emphasis on a macro-level understanding of the environment. You are tasked with solving puzzles which then require you to go through more layers in order to complete the objective.

This is a great example of a game with a strong premise. It's the type of adeventure game you are compelled to take the time to understand. I strongly recommend this to anyone who would like some mental stimulation (the good kind).

Beautifully crafted and very atmospheric game. The 2D artwork is just perfect for the game and the great voice acting really compliments it. This game have good story and plot and the whole setting is so interesting you'll forgive the game for being a bit slow at times but it's not really not that bad.

This is a great game that you'll definitely don't want to miss.
