    Indie games are no longer selling for indie game prices. I dont like the trend, If the game is good value for money regardless of its indie status then I guess the price is no issue if the consumer enjoys the product. Unfortunately all indie games are increasing in price, even the crappy ones which is pushing the average for indie games up quite high.

    I don't understand the appeal of Dear Esther. I just 'played' through it and while it was pretty and the music was nice, I wasn't hooked. You might as well just watch a YouTube walkthrough, because the game is only around an hour long and all you can do is just walk while the voiceovers tell you the story.

    Nah nah, you're supposed to listen to the words and develop a deep understanding of the story :rolleyes:

    It may as well not be a story. Stories should flow. If you go and explore random areas it just stops, so yes, it may as well be a video. Walking around brings nothing to the experience, though I'm sure some pretentious people who "get" it :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: more than the average person will try and convince you otherwise.

    There is a story, and it does flow. The challenge lies in putting the story together from the parts you come across randomly, and the pleasure lies in overcoming that challenge and enjoying the environment. A video would be completely linear, which Dear Esther isn't.

    This would be fine if the story was particularly interesting. They should have just written a book.

    $2.50 on a Steam sale is about the right price for this.

    Of course it is. It'd be like me finding any random book, cutting it into 1000 pieces then throwing it at someone, asking them to assemble it again so it makes sense. Is that clever? To give you pieces at a time as if there's any possible way of coming to a conclusion before knowing everything there is to know?

    Have you seen Momento, Arlington Road, The Usual Suspects or X amount of mystery movies? You get pieces, you put them together and draw a conclusion. The fact that I (and countless others) felt the same way after having played Dear Esther more than justifies the doubt people have about this needing to be a game at all. Luckily it was free.

    Played through Dear Esther last night, and very much enjoyed it. The atmosphere, visuals (for the Source Engine) and music were great. I loved the music, it was beautiful stuff.
