Digital: A Love Story Review 1

   I can remember the day I got the internet in my house; it was both glorious and slightly terrifying. I remember the first website I went on was a website for Harry Potter, in which you would fly a broomstick and dodge obstacles, the relevance of this?, well, to me the internet has always either been there, or not been there. I still to this day couldn’t easily explain to people how the early days of the internet operated, as I was never exposed to the technological updates in my youth, hel...

Analogue a hate story was on sale so I bought it. Reading about it, I found out about Digital a love story. I went then to download it thinking I would play a little bit before moving to the newer one. Three hours later I finished the game, and went here to say how great it was. There was only text and sounds - but I was moved more than I think I have been by any game in a long time.

Maybe I'm just being defensive because I was always late to the party on so many aspects of new and emerging technological trends in the past 3 decades.

The Brilliant FuturePast of Digital: A Love Story 0

Christine Love’s 2010 indie title Digital: A Love Story weaves together technonostalgia and point-and-click adventure gameplay into a unique, touching piece of interactive fiction. Digital takes place “five minutes into the future of 1988,” according to Love. The Internet of this future-past is but a crying babe in Al Gore’s arms. A subculture of tech-savvy hackers post on crude Bulletin Board Systems about everything from FidoNet nodes to fantasy RPGs to the burgeoning genre of cyberpunk....
