Retro Gamer: Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit)

28 Feb 2010  No Comments


I only did one previous post in this category, and it was eons ago. This week I got another chance.

Indigo Prophecy - Fahrenheit

While browsing the net, reading some news and reviews on the new PS3 game Heavy Rain a lot of people were comparing it to Indigo Prophecy what some called the greatest video game ever. I realized that I never got to try out the game. and while I was clicking through Steam’s website. I found it the $10 section and thought why not, it was the perfect long weekend.

Indigo Prophecy - Fahrenheit 1

I downloaded the game and installed it and got around playing it Thursday night. The game doesn’t have much gameplay but rather a plethora of action sequences where you have to press certain buttons as they appear on the screen. But don’t get me wrong that is not bad at all, it blends well with the game.

Indigo Prophecy - Fahrenheit 3

It took me 2 days to complete the game with moderate playing time (4 hours a day) and really loved it.

Indigo Prophecy™ is an innovative adventure game that tells the story of Lucas Kane—an ordinary man who unconsciously commits a random act of murder. Through the use of branching storylines and multiple character perspectives, players embark on an immersive adventure on par with a Hollywood thriller.

Retro Rating: ★★★★★★★★★½ 

Modern Day Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 

5 years after its release, Indigo Prophecy is still an awesome game and is highly recommended.

Lets take a walk down memory lane… Continue Reading

My first look at a retro game.

This week’s title is:

The Simpsons Arcade Game.jpg

This was one of the best Beat ‘em up games ever released, what killed me that it was never released on any console except for the PC and Commodore 64. So I ended up spending A LOT of money on the arcade. It would have been a much cheaper option for me to buy one of the systems back then.
