One Step Behind
No one likes to feel like they are out of the loop, especially if your job and even your life may be on the line. From Drink Cider, Make Games, developer of Somewhere In England, 1928, one of our CGDC 10 winners, comes One Step Behind. another clever point-and-click adventure.
The game is less about adventuring however, and more about piecing together a story. Click on one of four chapter titles to begin in any order you like. Click to interact with people and objects, and drag your inventory items onto objects or each other to use them, or double-click some inventory items to check for any other uses. I don't want to say too much, because part of the fun is watching the story be revealed one segment at a time. I will say this: along with the main character always being behind, One Step Behind makes the player feel behind as well. It makes you want you to keep playing so you can figure out what is going on. If you're looking for a short but compelling mystery, give it a try.
