Excerpt: Post Mortem (A visit to the dark side) I believe that Microids is one of the finest developers of adventure games out there right now. What a legacy of impressive games: Amerzone, Road To India, Syberia and now Post Mortem. After the release of Syberia - there were two games that I thought had the most promise judging by their site teasers, pre-release game shots and general around the web buzz. Post Mortem was one of these games..
Excerpt: Imagine this scene if you will: a married couple in the throws of passion is interrupted by a man in a white mask. The man proceeds to drug the couple, chop off their heads, place their heads in their laps, and then place ancient gold coins in their mouths. Grisly, eh? Such is the backdrop for Post Mortem , the latest adventure from French developer Microïds. In the game you play an ex-detective named Gus MacPherson.
Summary: In the newly released graphical adventure game Post Mortem, you play as Gustave MacPherson, a former private eye. Gustave is an American expatriate living in Paris and trying to eke out a living as a painter. When contacted about a strange murder by a stereotypically mysterious dame named Sophia Blake, he cracks easily. Though you, as Gustave, are allowed to say "no" to the would-be client, eventually you'll have to take the case..
Conclusion: I so badly want Microids to be successful. They have committed their support to the adventure genre. I would like nothing more than to help their cause by telling everyone to go buy their adventures. I can do that with Syberia, a truly remarkable adventure. But as much as I'd like to see every adventure succeed, the forseeable consequences are far worse if companies start to believe they can produce this sort of product without responsible reviewers informing the fans.
