A portable neo-noir thriller
Gemini Rue, Joshua Nuernberger and Wadjet Eye's wonderful neo-noir adventure game, made its way over to iOS devices yesterday. It's been overhauled for the new platforms, featuring a redesigned combat system, a hotspot finder to eliminate pixel hunting, and larger icons and text.
The original version, released in 2011, left quite the impression on me. Although it's reminiscent of Westwood's Blade Runner, it ends up being a unique title with a complex, slow-burning narrative, well-thought-out puzzles, and a surprising amount of physicality.
Gemini Rue can be picked up on the App Store for $3.99 right now (normally $4.99), and it's well worth a look.
