“A deserted island…a lost man…memories of a fatal crash…a book written by a dying explorer.” Two years in the making, the highly anticipated Indie remake of the cult mod Dear Esther arrives on PC. Dear Esther immerses you in a stunningly realised world, a remote and desolate island somewhere in the outer Hebrides. As you step forwards, a voice begins to read fragments of a letter: "Dear Esther..." - and so begins a journey through one of the most original first-person games of recent years. Abandoning traditional gameplay for a pure story-driven experience, Dear Esther fuses it’s beautiful environments with a breathtaking soundtrack to tell a powerful story of love, loss, guilt and redemption. Winner of 2012 IGF Excellence in Visual Art. Supported by Indie Fund.

Am I to expect a different story? Or is this just a remake?

They´ve modernised the story, added action, first-person cutscenes that involve button smashing, and the british voice is replaced by a deep manly grunt.

Well bad gameplay is certainly better than no gameplay at all!

It's a narrative. That means you should expect narration, not action.

Thats like saying I'd buy a picture book with no story and burn real books because there are too many pages.
