Go buy Emerald City Confidential

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!

    OK. Trusting your admittedly excellent taste I’ll give it a try as soon as I find a spare second, then.

    Oh, and cheers!
