Richard and Alice are prisoners. Both their cells have a leather sofa and a state-of-the-art computer. But only Richard’s has a TV. Outside, the snow falls. It has done for some time. Elsewhere, they say, parts of the world have been rendered an inhospitable desert, the earth parched and cracked. People live in the zones now. The lucky ones, anyway. Richard and Alice have secrets. *** A mystery story about family, desperation and the weather, set to the beat of an indie adventure game.

It's now officially the Spring, which means we've decided to make snowy adventure game Richard & Alice half-price for the next few days! Also: More great reviews!

Posted by LewisDenby on Mar 21st, 2013

The 21st March: Spring has officially arrived. Surely, overnight, global depression will have lifted, children will be playing in shorts and t-shirts in the park, and pub beer gardens will be overflowing. That's how the start of Spring works, right? It's-- oh, no, wait, the weather forecast says we should still wrap up warm.

No matter. To celebrate the official end of Winter, we've decided to make Richard & Alice available for 50% of its usual asking price, only right here on Desura!

To take advantage of this lovely offer, all you need to do is buy Richard & Alice from Desura in the next five days, and you'll get it for £1.99 or your regional equivalent.

That's just £1.99 for a game Rock, Paper, Shotgun called "incredibly moving," PC Gamer called "a tender, human story," and Destructoid awarded 8/10. [Click here for a full list of Richard & Alice reviews.]

Created by Lewis Denby and Ashton Raze, whose games journalism credits include the likes of Eurogamer, Gamespot and the Telegraph, Richard & Alice is a riveting mystery story about family, desperation and the weather – all set to the beat of an indie adventure game.
