Dear Esther is the award-winning first-person exploration game that paved the way for The Chinese Room's collaboration with Frictional Games on Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and the BAFTA-winning Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. It’s a ghost story, told using first-person gaming technologies. Rather than traditional gameplay the focus here is on exploration, uncovering the mystery of the island, of who you are and why you are here. Fragments of story are randomly uncovered when exploring the various locations of the island, making every each journey a unique experience. Dear Esther features a stunning, specially commissioned soundtrack from composer Jessica Curry.
Originally released on PC and Mac in 2012, Dear Esther was brought to PlayStation 4 & Xbox One with the Landmark Edition in 2016, which featured a directors' commentary, remastered audio, added accessibility features and trophies / achievements. For more info visit: www.dear-esther.com
