Product Description

Possessed by unexplainable urges, decent citizens are murdering others throughout the city, at random, in public. Control an ever-changing plot in this groundbreaking supernatural thriller that twists tighter with every move you make. Outsmart the cops. Uncover the truth behind your unspeakable crime. Battle dark forces as you roam the city and fall deeper into the mystery.

From the Manufacturer

You lead an ordinary life. You have friends, a job, and an everyday routine. Then, one day, it all ends. You find yourself standing over a dead body with a bloody knife in your hand. You have no idea who the victim is but one thing is certain--you’ve killed him.

Without any recollection or reason, you can only guess at what possessed you to do this. But possession is exactly what it is. Unknown to you is that forces of an ancient prophecy are at work, with the fate of humankind hanging in the balance. As you keep one step ahead of the cops, discover what lies beneath these supernatural events... and uncover their connection to an inexplicable crime wave sweeping the city.

Experience truly innovative gameplay where every decision, from interrogation questions to physical movement, affects the entire drama. Assume multiple roles to create the action--and suffer the consequences--of this unfolding ever-changing mystery. No two story paths are ever the same in this endlessly replayable adventure that recalls the most thrilling supernatural mystery movies.

Features:

  • Control an eerie supernatural storyline as the plot develops; make split-second decisions, interrogate witnesses, and more... every decision affects future actions and scenes

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Melding of games and movies September 26, 2005
Platform for Display:PC
Note: I own the Xbox version of this game. From the PC demo I've played the PC version doesn't have the aliasing problems as the Xbox and the game has a much better resolution. Other than that, the review below should be accurate.

There have been games throughout the years that have truly done something original, different and completely engaging. It always seems to be that these games fall by the wayside in terms of popularity which is a shame. Indigo Prophecy falls into this category as an original game with a fantastic premise and incredibly exciting gameplay.

Never before have I played a game that was so interactive in its story-telling. When trying to describe this game, I would point to God of War, a PS2 game in which there were scenes where you have timed button presses that would move forward a cutscene. It helped bring you into the story, the cutscenes so that it was you that were doing all of the cool acrobatic manuevers killing the hydra. Another game that used this to a lesser effect was Resident Evil 4, for example with the knife fight that you had to push buttons to keep Leon safe. Indigo Prophecy takes this idea and pushes it to the extreme.

IP is basically and incredibly interactive movie. It mixes the adventure genre, which is seldom seen on console, and movies and melds them into a cohesive and incredibly engaging story. It starts off with a bang as you immediately find yourself killing someone you don't know in a diner. You feel like you're not in control of your actions and as a result you have a body in a restroom and a policeman drinking coffee in the restaurant. What do you do? You're free to act from here on out. Do you leave the body and rush out? Do you hide the body? What about the blood? What about the blood on you?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Game....But Not For Everyone October 26, 2005
Platform for Display:PC
First off, let me say that I was very torn with giving this game a 5-star rating. What for the most part is an intriguing fast-paced adventure game would at times get bogged down by temperamental controls, ultimately reducing the gameplay to a series of frustrating repetative motions just to complete the most mundane of tasks. At times I really had to restrain myself from smashing my gamepad to pieces (while swearing that I would rate this a 2-star game!), but once the story begins to move along again, the frustration is quickly forgotten. Indigo Prophecy is one hell of a game.

This is an amazingly well presented game with an engrossing and compelling story. The atmosphere is dark and moody, and is accented by a perfect music score that seems to be lifted straight out of your favorite David Lynch thriller. The graphics, while not cutting edge, are up to par and do not detract from the experience. The voice acting is by far the best I've heard in a game.

The main aspect of this game that will turn off many gamers is the control scheme. This is a console game ported to the PC, and the controls were designed as such. This game is virtually impossible if you do not purchase a dual analog gamepad. The players interactions with the game involve pressing the analog sticks in a series of motions displayed on the screen (think of the old simon game) while your character reacts in the game when sequences are pulled off correctly. The more frustrating parts of the game involve climbing fences and poles, which requires a series of repeated (and timed) quarter-circle motions. I've been playing video games for most of my life (and have pulled off dragon punches in Street Fighter 2 using only my feet on the controller!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth playing again... Immediately! May 7, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is by far one of the most engrossing, impressive games I've played and was well worth buying a game controller for. (Now that I've got one, I'll never go back to gaming with my mouse and keyboard again!)

Unlike many point-and-click adventures, there is very little boring lag time on this one: the developers chose, instead, to keep players engaged by making the "story development" episodes interactive.

Meanwhile, the player is presented with many action and conversation choices throughout the game, and each choice can lead the storyline in a wholly new direction.

In other words, playing the game once does not mean you've seen or done it all. Thank goodness for that, too, because I finished the game on Saturday (or so I'd thought) but didn't have another waiting to be played. Rather than cleaning house, I decided to play Indigo Prophecy over again... only to find that just TWO different choices in the opening chapter changed my entire game play experience.

Why can't more games be so well-planned, interactive, and wonderfully designed?

2.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Story, Lousy Gameplay January 3, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The multiple perspectives, chilling atmosphere, and killer graphics will keep you intrigued for the first few hours of play. However, the action sequences are mind-numbing. You have to play a sort of Simon routine by pressing buttons in the order that they are flashed on the screen. The button presses come fast--so much so that you miss the action while paying attention to the buttons. The worst part is what other players describe as "button-mashing sequences". In these you have to press the arrow keys repeatedly to motivate your character to run fast, hold on to a ledge, or some other "feat of strength". No matter how fast you mash the buttons, it never seems fast enough and your character falls repeatedly to his death (or drowns, or gets run over, or...). An action sequence that seemed fun at first quickly gets HELLA BORING. I played on the easiest level and eventually gave up during one of the final battles. I didn't care about the ending enough to invest another hour in watching my character mangle himself and then indulge in a self-pitying death monologue: "I guess I didn't have what it took to save the girl. Now I'll never know what was really going on. If only my human controller had drunk six more cups of coffee to mash those buttons just a little faster..." Blech. Game Over.
