The 39 Steps Review | GIZORAMA

GIZORAMA - The 39 Steps is not a game. It can be best described as a digital adaption of a literary work. Sure it has interactive elements but those elements are the bare minimum of what can be defined as interactive. The Story Mechanics adapted the classic James Buchan’s espionage thriller to a digital visual novel for iOS devices, PC, Mac, and Linux. The original novel inspired Ian Fleming’s James Bond, various famous stage productions, a radio drama starring Orson Welles, and movies including an Alfred Hitchcock adaption. The history behind the book and its adaptation is classic enough to have its fans but leaves one to wonder if that is relevant enough for a new kind of adaptation for modern audiences. (PC, The 39 Steps) 2.5/5
