Probably one of my prime examples for the 'Games as Art' argument. Everything about 'Dear Esther' adds to the feeling of beleaguered misery and loneliness you may experience while travelling through the purgatory like landscape. The island, weather, sound, score, and narrative all weave a pleasantly mysterious story of loss and soul searching. Like any good artwork, no two people will come away with identical experiences or conclusions.

I really like this game, a good atmospheric couple of hours on a April Sunday afternoon, fit perfectly with the pouring rain outside haha. But no was a bit strange at first playing a game that had no action keys whatsoever but I found I really enjoyed it, and the ghosts creeped me out :s

First 15 minutes of playing at max got my CPU to 90 degrees... o.O And as for the gameplay during that time - I wasn't really impressed. Will hopefully write a review when finished!

I don't know why your temp went so high on cpu? Mines only little bit better and didn't exceed 35 degrees.. oh unless we are talking about different measurement units. C or F?

This is rather late reply, but even though the performance of our CPUs might be similar, there's a big difference - your CPU is a desktop CPU, while I have a laptop. Laptop CPUs tend to run at higher temps due to the lack of free space.

Game looks really great, and the atmosphere is really relaxing in the beginning.

Finally at least some gameplay can be seen! Judging by everything I've seen/hear about Dear Esther, this game will be very good.
