What's cool about it:

  • Strong focus on storytelling, with believable characters whose pasts and personalities you can explore.
  • A unique and atmospheric world, shrouded in mysteries that are begging to be solved.
  • Created by writers whose games journalism work has appeared at Eurogamer, Gamespot, and the Telegraph.

Overview:

Richard and Alice are prisoners. Both their cells have a leather sofa and a state-of-the-art computer. But only Richard’s has a TV.

Outside, the snow falls. It has done for some time. Elsewhere, they say, parts of the world have been rendered an inhospitable desert, the earth parched and cracked. People live in the zones now. The lucky ones, anyway.

Richard and Alice have secrets.

Created by Lewis Denby and Ashton Raze, whose games journalism credits include the likes of Eurogamer, Gamespot and the Telegraph, Richard & Alice is a riveting mystery story about family, desperation and the weather – all set to the beat of an indie adventure game.

Minimum system requirements: Windows XP SP 3 / Vista / 7 / 8, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM (1GB recommended), video card with DirectX 9.0c compatibility, 100MB hard drive space, mouse and keyboard.

Well worth your time

A few unjustified ratings made me feel the need to throw in my 2 cents.
A great game with fantastic atmosphere, while I think rating it a 1 star (!) was totally uncalled for based on price and graphics, I do agree that it is pricey coming in at $5.99 considering what you're getting for the money: a great story driven game, mostly dialogue driven and well within the whole "gamesread more as art" indie movement (so expect near-8-bit graphics that have huge charm nonetheless), that clocks in well under what you'd expect for the price. In saying that, it achieves all it has to and struck me as feeling more or less exactly as it should.
Take that how you will, I stand by 4 stars. Recommended for those who enjoy this style, not so much for those expecting anything else.

Charming Story and Visuals

The story is very enrapturing and the visuals have that retro charm. The sound/music was pretty well executed. My only problem with Richard and Alice is that it's very short! Expect to finish the game within 3 hours, basically exploring everything except a few dialogue paths. As interactive stories go, this is a goodie. As games go, it's quick and leaves you wanting more.

Falls flat

Posted on 2013-03-02 20:35:45 byAdokat's avatarAdokat:

Despite an interesting premise and moments of earnest dialog, the story ultimately fell flat. Only one character was strongly developed (though the writing for the character is to be commended), and my curiosity about the world diminished as I played on.
The game's world seemed empty in terms of themes or substance. The scenes between Richard and Alice together mostlyread more seemed like a waste.
The twists at the end were poorly conveyed and felt rushed, leaving me with little impact and little drive to see an alternate ending.
