Reviews

“Some games have you from the start screen. So it is with Over the Alps, a narrative adventure from a team that's had experience at both Inkle and Failbetter, so knows quite a bit about this narrative adventure stuff by now.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“Over the Alps was penned by alumni from interactive fiction masters Inkle and Failbetter, and it shows in the superb writing. Every conversation sparkles with with wit and charm. The characters are interesting, the setting evocative, and the mystery unpredictable—exactly what you want from a spy thriller.”
PC Gamer

“Over the Alps is one to look out for, especially if gripping, immersive narrative adventures are your cup of tea.”
8/10 – Gamereactor
