I know, I’m as shocked as you are, but the first episode of Zandel Media’s Missing: An Interactive Thriller is pretty good, and left me wanting the next episode.
Having grown up with FMV games being a thing, the resurgence (of sorts) is a weird thing, with games like Roundabout using the comedic nature inherent to FMV games, but having an actual game undeneath, whereas Missing is a full-on FMV-game. You click still images and it progresses the story. You sort of approach this kind of game assuming you’ll be able to have a right laugh, and take the piss out of it, but here…well, there’s nothing really to laugh at: it’s just a well made, well produced game. Check out the video to see what I mean, and hear more thoughts.
It’s available on iOS and PC, by the way, for £2.79.
