Game of the Week: Digital: A Love Story
I haven't posted anything in a while, I've been having computer troubles. Hopefully I'm done with those, and will return to blogging regularly. Anyway, the game of the week this week is Digital: A Love Story.
Digital: A Love Story is a visual novel set in the early days of the internet, in which the player commits phone fraud, dials into BBSs, hacks into protected systems, and much more. The interface essentially transforms your computer into an Amiga, making the game incredibly immersive. I won't give away too much of the plot and characters, because much of the game is about discovering the story.
I am not a huge fan of visual novels, but this game was one that I thoroughly enjoyed. The means of interaction are pretty limited, but it was one of the most engaging games I've ever played. I'd highly recommend it. You can download it for free here.
