Fans of indie adventure games are rejoicing. After a year of no releases (sounds like someone else I know) Dave Gilbert has finally released his Play First-published adventure game, Emerald City Confidential!
He’s put a really fun Noir spin on the land of Oz. All your favorite characters are in there, but probably not as you remember them. The game has been somewhat casual-ized, to try and appeal to Play First’s built in fanbase, but don’t worry adventurers, there are no hidden-objects (unless you count the optional bonus button quest!) and no fast-paced pizza restaurant management simulators. Just inventory puzzles and lots of dialog! Joy!
Dave’s done a great job on this one. I played through the whole thing in just a couple of days. My daughter loved sitting on my lap and watching me play, so it’s fun for the whole family! Go pick it up from Dave’s site!
