Online Game Review: Murder Mystery Oozes Eerie Atmosphere

Anne Reeks, writing for the Houston Chronicle, recently reviewed a mystery-themed game for Windows, Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None.

According to Reeks, "The game is a whodunit heaven of clues, conundrums, secrets and suspects. Moody piano music, superb voice-acting, gorgeous graphics and expansive 3-D environments positively ooze atmosphere."

In describing the game, she adds, "It's set on an island off the English coast in August 1939, when Europe was on the brink of World War II. The cast, plot and dialogue are largely true to the book, Christie's all-time best-seller. A paperback version comes with the game. However, some changes have been made. The most significant is an 11th character, Patrick Narracott, brother of the boatman in the book. He is the player's proxy and neatly slips into the mix, stranded with the others when his boat is sabotaged and furnished with a credible excuse for investigating."

Read her whole review, including her personal experience in setting up and playing the game, here.
