Again, I refer you to what I said in the quirky 3DS games thread, I can't give any more detail than that:|
"The Starship Damley, on the other hand...the less I say about that the better. The creator said that they want gamers to figure it out without any help or tutorials and sure enough, the first part of the game is a wild exercise. I was so confused. It was delicious. I felt like I had timewarped into a DOS game I found in my dad's desk drawer and had no idea how to play.
Things changed after that first segment, but I am not going to tell you how, why, how much or anything else. It may be important that I do not. It may end up saving the giraffes in the end. Oh, the giraffes.
Anyway, I think The Monsters Come Out On Fridays has no plans for localization, but Level 5 seems to be thinking about bringing over The Starship Damley. If you like old text adventures or old adventure games in general, and you enjoy tense horror games that are more about the atmosphere than anything else, you may get a real kick out of it, or you may not. I cannot tell you; it wouldn't be ethical. Don't take this to mean it has some awe-inspiring awesome story that changes your life. I don't think it does. I don't know that it doesn't. It doesn't know that I don't know, right?
If you have the funds and the mood to just try something you might like, it could be a great experience for you. Or not. Or it could just be a really well-rendered 3D carrot. Or not."
I guess I could say if you ever wanted something to feel like an Infocom text adventure taken into this century, I think this is as close as it gets (but it isn't a text adventure).
