Atari and Quantic Dream have dropped upon us a real time thriller; but this game is no dark style game where your flash light is your best friend. Instead it starts off simple and makes you do the thinking and reacting. Indigo Prophecy really makes you, the player have all the control. Let’s get a little deeper, shall we?
You are eating at a small restaurant in the middle of New York… calm, quiet and minding your own business. You decide to use the restroom. You suddenly pull out a knife and start carving your arms and are bleeding all over the place, then decide to stab another man as he is washing up. After coming back to your senses you see a bloody knife in your hands and a dead man in front of you. Well what do you do… you just killed a man, or was it you? Did the real Lucas Kane kill that man or was it something else? I guess your going to have to find out for yourself.
Indigo Prophecy has a twisted story that will indulge on your brain making you play from start to finish; you play the game as not 1, but 3 main characters. You are the killer and detectives on this one. You would think having control of the good guys and bad guys would make the game to easy or you would know what is going to happen before it does. Well hate to tell you but this is just the beginning. Each character has its own way of living and mindset they go by. The Characters are Lucas Kane, Carla Valenti, and Tyler Miles.
Lucas Kane being your main man for the story while the others are for a more in-depth story that this game has hidden from you at the start.
Is this game going to scare the wits out of you? No, but it will keep you on the edge always wanting to grab more and more. If you like to solve puzzles or play CSI, then I advise you to try this game out.
