On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One

As it happens often yesterday afternoon I was looking at the X-Box Live without no real goal and I arrived on the demo for On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One which I did download just after I had checked the following trailer.




The gameplay and general design is a really good reminiscence of good old adventure games like Sam & Max, Discworld or Monkey Island, an RPG touch being added with FF like combats.

The atmosphere is a subtle mix between the Cthulhu and Blake & Mortimer or Captain Sky. The story takes place in 1922 and while you happen to join a detective agency specialized in "ancient Gods hunting" and other paranormal mysteries, this story also deals about Science. Yet, I've not finished it so I can hardly tell you more about it ;)

Anyway I think I'll finish this episode fast as it is really a nice surprise, especially for less than 20€ :)

4/6 from me !
