Digital: A Love Story

We don’t cover many games on TCTD, but this one seems great.

From TinyCart‘s review:

I admit it’s a weakness of mine that I must examine every game I enjoy through RGC’s lens, but as much as that DS title is a love letter to NES gaming, Digital is a tribute to those late nights wasted in front of your computer connecting to Bulletin Board Systems, analyzing strange screen names, and sending private messages to people you had no business talking to at your age.

Digital’s developer Christine Love provides this blurb for the PC/Mac/Linux adventure game’s premise:

“A computer mystery/romance set five minutes into the future of 1988. Crawl BBSes, uncover conspiracies, commit telephone fraud, fall in love. Welcome to the 20th century.”

Featuring a soundtrack from 4mat and starscream, amongst others, it seems like its worth a play, and the music is freely playable outside the game!

    This looks incredibly awesome. :) Sort of like .hack without all the lame dungeons/combat.

    Good story, interesting concept and all, but the game play was tedious and monotonous, and the puzzles were few and easy.
