“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.

It is almost exactly like the old mod except with better graphics, but they were stunning graphics.

I got it with the HIB8. The game is maybe 2 hours long at max if you walk slowly.

I think the original price of $10 is way too high. This is more like a really fancy, empty movie. I wouldn't go to the theaters for that price if this was a movie.

It's interesting. I don't realy like it as a game, but as a kind of interactive storytelling-experiment it's quite exciting. Though I waited and ached for something to happen in the beginning, I was quite pleased by the atmosphere, which is kind of spooky sometimes.
