Just finished this. Liked it lots. Not really a game though - more of a visual novel spun out of a book. But really a visual novel... not sure what I should call it.

Have you ever heard of a visual novel?

It’s a genre of video games very popular in the East, where you take the place of the protagonist of a story and from your decisions, you build your path toward different endings.

The 39 Steps is a visual novel with the difference that it doesn’t have multiple endings; instead of that, it has an amazing setting in sound and illustration. And tells the story of Richard Hannay and how he goes from his boring visit to London, to be in the center of the events that caused the WWI.

I recommend it only to people that enjoy reading or are looking for an experience unlike most video games, because in the end, it's still a book.
