Grandma's Game Hunting: The Indigo Prophecy
How would you feel about The Indigo Prophecy? I've just started it and I'm loving it. But the whole "track and field" thing might not be too good for the old RSI.
So, I followed the link and showed Grandma the site. The Indigo Prophecy (aka Fahrenheit, depending on where you are) has a decent flash site with a trailer, some character bios, a storyline, etc.,.. Grandma noticed the graphics look somewhat like a cross between "the first Silent Hill and GTA III." The story seemed strange enough to grab her attention, and it had a couple decent reviews from a few of Grandma's favorite sources.
She loaded up the screenshot menu and found this: (click to make BIG)
Grandma exclaimed her confusion in no blunt terms. "He's depressed?? He has a depression meter? ...The fuck is that? Do you go around finding boxes of Paxil to cheer him up? .....Weird...."
So I don't know if this is going to happen. Ross, if you care to provide an explanation for the character's melancholy trip to the local shake stop, sans savvy Manhattan date, it would surely enlighten us. He doesn't have a ragged cut out Craigslist apartment directory for Queens, he isn't smoking any strange substances and he isn't killing any locals with a bat; which makes Grandma think he isn't an NYU student with a heavy paper due Friday and he isn't Michael Bloomberg.
Grandma will do some more game hunting this week for her next victim. We'll keep you posted on what we find.
