The Privacy is another Flash point-and-click adventure from the stellar Gotmail team that gave us The Bar, Il Destino, The Salon and others. This game is set in a high-tech, big-brother world where even the watchers are watched and elaborate security systems are commonplace.
As with other games by these talented Japanese Flash game developers, literary references can be found lying about within this game, such as George Orwell's "1984" and JD Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye", an easy means of channeling a narrative into well-traveled territory without having to actually provide much narrative content. The game leverages the power of suggestion to its advantage.
Of course the real stars of these games are the phenomenal photo-realistic environments created from 3D models, and the high-tech theme of the game sets the stage for some absolutely stunning visuals. It is quite evident that much attention to detail went into making this gorgeous game.
I was not a fan of their previous work, The Bar. Although beautiful and stunning in its own right, the puzzles were awkward and the solutions to some were not very logical at all. I am pleased to say that the design team has learned much from their previous work thus making The Privacy one of their best efforts so far. I especially liked the fact that every puzzle has a logical solution and none were too difficult to solve on ones own. An excellent diversion for anyone that enjoys these types of games.
Cheers to Cobber for suggesting the game. =)
