If anyone wants to be considered a serious adventure gamer , i’m sure that not only heard of Jane Jensen but considers her one of the most brilliant story tellers genre and gaming has ever known. On her latest attempt Jane Jensen delivers a suspensed and intruiging story of power ,corruption and twists that will get you off your feet as soon as you hit the play button.
The adventure games genre is regulated by ambiguous rules. Many times a game will be criticized for its graphics while on the same time its low resolution graphics will be praised. The AGS engine has been on the line of fire for quite a few times in both cases. But when a game serves its purpose and simultaneously pays homage to the founders of the genre, graphics and the rest of the technological parameters are put aside. Kathy Rain proves that with the above you can make an adventure so fresh, while at the same time it subtly reminds us all those elements and influences that led to its creation.
