“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.

Awesome game kudos to the devs. The last scene was especially powerful.

I can't recommend this to everyone, and it's not without flaw, but this is quite easily the best written and most narratively innovative game I've ever played.

You guys took a significant risk by doing something so different, and as such there are a few small flaws, such as parts where I wasn't sure whether falling down a hole would kill me or not, but that doesn't detract from the fact that this is a wonderful, wonderful experience.

Thank you.

It's not a game, it's an interactive catarsis.

Although the complex English, I was able to enjoy this extremely artistic and poetic master piece.

Filled with emotions and beauty, this is time worthy of cherishing.

A beautiful and engaging experience! with beautiful visuals and an amazing well written storyline. My only complaint would be (even though I understood everything) is that the mod requires quite a skilled english vocabulary to understand most of the storyline which can be bad as not all of the players will be able to understand everything, causing confusion and issues with certain buyers.

Overall I recommend this to anyone who wants a unique and engrossing experience that will stick in your head for a long time.

Perfectly done game ever!

can't put any words for the amount of eyegasm i have had playing this.
this game is a MUST HAVE!
