ICY [Review]

Another week, another RPG. I just can’t seem to get enough of them at the moment. Anyway, the latest game to grab my attention is ICY, a text based adventure set in a frozen cold Ice Age. My verdict: it’s a nice idea, but the poor writing really makes it hard to get into.

Such a criticism is subjective, I think, based on my background as a writer and someone who values top-notch writing in video games but I think it’s a valid concern, especially in a game where 90% of the world is conveyed through text.

About dgrixti

I develop games and I write. I'm studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and I've been published in a number of literary journals all over the world, and my first actual book is being launched in July 2012 by Disposable Fiction. I like writing speculative fiction, horror and literary fiction, sometimes all blended together. You can find elements of my writing in my games, because I consider my games stories that happen to have gameplay.
