Exploring the beautiful world of Dear Esther

Say what you will about Dear Esther’s legitimacy as an actual “game”, its world is meticulously rendered and it is a sight to be seen.  This a series of screencaps I took while “playing” the game, admiring the spectacular set pieces and attention to detail.

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.

    So what do you do in this game? Can you give a brief synopsis?

      I mean really the word “game” is used very loosely here. You don’t interact with the world at all, all you do is move from point A to point B and take in the story as it is narrated and the accompanying scenery. Its great from an artistic stand-point and you can get through the whole thing in one sitting, but don’t expect to get much out of it in terms engagement. You can really only go through it once too and you’ll never need to start it up again. Think of it more like reading a short story than playing a game and I think you get much more out of the experience.
