Gemini Rue Review: New Old School: Hardcore Droid

Since their decline from mainstream popularity, adventure games have found themselves settling into a nostalgia niche. Despite this, there’s a sense that the genre’s ability to tell the sorts of character-driven stories that other types of games struggle with could give them wider appeal. Games like Telltale’s The Walking Dead have managed to penetrate the mainstream market, but at the cost of some of the fundamentals that adventure gamers hold dear. Gemini Rue walks the line between nostalgic adventure and accessible interactive story capably, by adjusting its design rather than its conventions. (Android, Gemini Rue, iPad, iPhone) 4.1/5
