Anyone played "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter"?

Post by Expack3 » Sat Sep 27, 2014 10:32 am

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, an adventure-esque game made by The Astronauts, recently released on Steam and GOG.com. Given that there was a bit of a debate which spawned after I posted the thoughts of the company head, who also designed The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, on old-school adventure games, I was wondering if anyone here has played the released product. From what I've read, it's a modernized, old-school adventure game - as contradictory as that sounds. For example, while objects and where they go are pointed out to you, they don't stand out like a beacon (i.e. they're no "X marks the spot" on a map, a blazing arrow, or a giant glowing light you can see from anywhere), so you'll still have to riddle out where to go to place/use the object based on the object's function and the clues you've found scattered throughout the world.
You like manuals. You like manuals. You love them. You cannot resist manuals.
Your gameplay experience is meaningless without manuals.

So that's where I remember hearing the name of the game from.

I haven't played it.
