Gemini Rue Review - The Digital Fix

Pixelisation. There is nothing like the cold sharp edge of a dark pixel to set the heart racing. Those blocks of retro charm have the capacity to bring forth tears of memories from a misspent youth and evoke an atmosphere somehow beyond the grasp of modern high definition graphics. It is a mystery why, and perhaps something that will be lost to the younger generation as the tides of time slowly sweep the style away, however it is a technique that Gemini Rue uses brilliantly to its full potential. It is a tribute to those heady LucasArts adventure days, a genre sadly almost extinct today, and at the same time tells a compelling, deeply philosophical, science fiction plot. (Gemini Rue, PC) 8/10

It's a brilliant game.

Anyone that hasn't played it, should.
