Okay, how about this for a detour from UT? I’ve been looking for a game that was essentially diametrically opposed to UT3, just to bliss out on, and relax. I tried Proteus but in the end, just couldn’t get past the 8-bit graphics. I finally got around to trying Dear Esther which has been out about a year.
Well, I was initially drawn in by the game world but just as I was about to get bored, I entered the cave sequence which is some of the best graphics I’ve seen in a long time. Great use of lighting and textures. Will be interesting to see where it goes from here…

I may have to check this out. Sounds pretty interesting and different from the usual single player game. I’ll have to see if STEAM has it.

Yeah it was $9 on Steam. It’s very different from FPS’s so be prepared to shift in to low gear ;-).

Yeah it gives me some UT lighting ideas…
