It’s a tragedy how quickly games “grow old”… well, it’s also great news of the speed of their evolution, but what I mean to say is that I understand how hard it is even a few years later to see the beauty in something that by our present standards is antiquated. So I was very happy when I saw somebody writing about this one because I thought it is an amazing masterpiece. If you’re willing to overlook it’s age the graphics is superb, original, the story is shockingly interesting and the music creates a mood that I’d call one of the best “gothic” moods I’ve ever experienced. Unluckily for me I never did finish it. I was sure I had gotten close but now looking around the web it seems the game is even more huge and awesome than I experienced… just had to write about it a bit…
Some screenshots from the game can be seen here.
Reading it’s wikipedia page I realize the main character is a true anti-hero, and since I’ve played this quite a long time ago, but blogged about it quite recently I’m reminded of a quote which I believe is from Anne Rice’s vampire books which (i think) goes something like: ‘over the centuries we don’t change, but become more and more ourselves’.

Anti-hero in a prototype?

Just the other day i was desperatelly searching wikipedia & general web hoping to find out about books featuring interesting anti-hero type characters. Gotta say I love ’em more morally ambiguous characters. For example I keep trying star wars books but the universe seems so black and white, I’m quite bored of the eternal triumph of clearly positive characters. I’m curious about stories which mirror what I see in the real world more closely: a lot of morally grey choices and good/bad results not always following their good/bad respective choices. So, about prototype: open world + more gray character = I’m quite interested. Now there’s two things that I’m worried about: first I have yet to see trully inspiring artwork, and the bigger issue: I wish there were choices and options involved. Keeping my fingers crossed. I know I’m wishing for much, and either way I’ll probably be giving the game a try someday because it dares to be a bit more niche, but I’m hoping it’ll be so much more…
