It’s quickie time, chums! The latest subject of video game lust is none other than The Silver Case, a PS4 remaster of Grasshopper Manufacture’s first game, which originally released for the PS1 way back in 1999. How does it fair in these modern times? Trousers down and let's find out.
So not much has changed then? Any cause for concern?
Honestly, anyone who picks up The Silver Case will probably be well aware of what’s in store for them; only someone who doesn’t have the good taste to read up on something before they buy it (and that isn't you, clearly) might leave disappointed. With that said, The Silver Case is very zeitgeist indeed, which will put some off - especially modern gamers with no interest in visiting the past.
Does it come recommended despite that?
Anyone with a love of visual novels and/or point-and-click adventures should definitely give The Silver Case a whirl, as there’s plenty to enjoy in the setting, story and all-round quirkiness. Everyone else, however, should approach with some caution; this game is as niche as they come, and although that in itself can often seem appealing, we recommend watching a let’s play (at least check out the brief trailer above, lazy) or waiting for a price drop before you part ways with your coins.
The Silver Case is available now on PS4 & PC.
