Text Zedventure Popular Xbox Indie Game Comes to WP7March 26, 2011 No Comments
Another Xbox Live Indie game makes it to Windows Phone 7, an appaently rising trend that I hope will continue to gain popularity.
In this text-only adventure, you must escape a city ravaged by a mysterious infection. Explore a deserted residence, train station and shopping centre in three unique chapters with multiple endings. Each chapter is designed for replayability, where a single choice can lead to a dramatically different outcome.
The title supports custom soundtracks and features a trial mode. It can be purchased for (Â£0.79 / $1.00 / â‚¬1.00) from 17 regions worldwide, including the US, UK, Canada, Australia and Western Europe.
What critics have had to say about the Xbox 360 version:
“Matthew Reynolds’ moody little masterpiece is surprisingly pacy for a text game… This is far more gripping than it should be.” Official Xbox Magazine UK
“Short but enviably sharp, with a streamlined interface and evocative visual design… It’s a relic, certainly, but a charming and very literate one.” Edge Magazine
“There’s a solid understanding of what makes adventure games work here â€“ the story fills out pleasingly as you follow the breadcrumb trail of options, and the simple presentation fits extremely well with the grisly story â€“ playing through the game is a surprisingly tense experience.” The Guardian
“Yet despite its simplistic, bare-bones nature, Text Zedventure creates the kind of tension and atmosphere that most games fail miserably to conjure up… But itâ€™s gripping and there are some interesting situations and dilemmas that really made me stop and think about my next decision.” Gamesradar.com
