It’s refreshing that videogame developers are finally using videogames as an art: to tell stories.
Peter Moorhead’s Murder, made by Curve Digital is a point-and-click adventure game made for Android. We embark on our journey with the detective Motomeru Minori in Tokyo. Minori investigates a homicide comitted by an android who thinks humans should not be the dominant life form on earth.
Now, you have to be warned. This is not a game with tons of action and puzzles. This game is, and most likely intends to be a way of telling a story. It’s like a movie, just a lot more interactive. A lot of critics are giving this game negative a critic just because it’s short and doesn’t consist of a lot of gameplay. I guess it’s reasonable to be disappointed, but c’mon, this isn’t Call of Duty.
In my opinion, I actually loved this game. I adored its dark interpretation of a futuristic Tokyo. A great soundtrack and its retro feel made this game so great, as well.
Anyways, what do you think? Intrigued? Get the game for $1.49 here!
