Dear Esther [Trailer]
Some of you might remember the experimental game / ghost story Dear Esther as a mod for Half-Life 2 from 2008. The game’s visuals and level design are now completely redesigned by game artist Robert Briscoe and with some financial help of the Indie Fund it is going to be released February 14th on Steam.
For those who don’t know the game:
Dear Esther is a ghost story, told using first-person gaming technologies. Rather than traditional game-play the focus here is on exploration, uncovering the mystery of the island, of who you are and why you are here. Fragments of story are randomly uncovered when exploring the various locations of the island, making every each journey a unique experience.
