My Second Chance 0

Yesterday I wrote an extensive review of Gemini Rue, the latest point-and-click adventure game published by Wadjet Eye Games. I hit on all the points I wanted in that review, and was just adding links right before I was going to send, when an accidental click effectively erased the entire review. I usually remind myself that that sort of suffering is small compared to the suffering in the world in general, and I did some of that here, but I also found it a perfect complim...

Fantastic 0

Gemini Rue is every retro point-n-click lovers dream, but also has a great sci-fi story to be told.  The pixelated graphics in this game is very nice, but it will not be to everyones taste.

Defining Dystopia 0

A tale of two seemingly unrelated characters in a retrofied sci-fi world, Gemini Rue's take on dystopia transcends expectations.I can't even recall how exactly I stumbled upon this game, the style and genre aren't themes that I usually delve too deep into. I haven't played a ton of point and click adventure games either, and certainly none of the classics. So, looking at this game from a distance I really didn't know what to expect; I thought the retro art style was neat, it reminded me a bit of...

Adventures in a grim, desperate dystopia. 0

Gemini Rue is an adventure game that doesn't care to hide its influences. The title screen – set to the sight and sounds of the rain-stricken planet of Barracus – evokes the feeling of a grim, desperate dystopia that takes a cue from the likes of Blade Runner and Cowboy Bebop.After the unsettling scene of a confused prison inmate having his memories wiped, the focus shifts to Azriel Odin – an ex-Boryokudan gang member – and his investigations on Barracus into the whereabouts of his missing broth...
