Digital: A Love Story

Digital: A Love Story is one of the most unique games I have ever played - and in a very good way. It's a visual novel with a mystery and romance theme, set in an 80:s computer environment, lovingly replicated all the way down to the scan-lines. Growing up using an Amiga 500, I couldn't help but like the interface. But most of all, I liked the excellent way it is used to tell a story. Browsing around through bulletin boards and messages, the story is told one click at a time. It's a work of art, and a must-try for everyone who wants to explore alternative types of story-telling in games.

Browsing a BBS using a dial-up modem. I have never done this in real life, but I can image the time it was real.
