    dkirschner's Gemini Rue (PC)

    [July 22, 2012 07:40:31 PM]
    Gemini Rue...a dystopian future where the government hooks citizens on drugs then 'cleans up the streets,' abducting the addicts for rehabilitation, or more likely for memory-wiping and reprogramming to become assassins, government-sponsored criminals, or other agents of deceit. It's a thrilling premise to be sure, and I'm into the Memento-influenced story. ("I have this condition...") An adventure game that I really liked! It's not braindead easy, but not maddeningly difficult. Things make sense and you can always find the answer if you think about it and look for it.

    Alas, Gemini Rue has bugs, bugs, buuuuugs. Let me count the ways I couldn't play - sometimes the right half of the screen gets fuzzy, the rainbow pixels when cable stations go off air overnight; a picture analysis sequence that I couldn't exit except by ctl-alt-deleting the game; Giselle not talking to me about the machine; and finally the killer, once I reloaded a few times and she finally did talk to me about the machine, she she won't recognize the machine code and/or I can't knock the gun from the pipes. And thus, I cannot continue the game. I'm 100% sure I did it right. I even looked up a walkthrough to figure out what I was doing wrong. Answer: nothing. I even redid the entire gun-through-the-ventilation-system part from scratch and redid the machine code like 5 times, but Giselle and/or the machine won't recognize the code and I can't knock the gun from the pipe. It's a terrible disappearing trick. My character stands under the drain pipe on top of the crate, and I use the lead pipe to swing at the drain pipe. "I can reach it but I have no reason to do that now." Yes you do, you most certainly do, you see, because I guided the gun down the correct shaft several times and it definitely should be there and WHY won't you just TRY to hit the pipe, stupid computer-man?!

    Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    Compelling point-and-click cyberpunk sci-fi so far. Looking forward to the story. ------------- Really unfortunate bugs made me stop short. Otherwise I dig the Memento references.
