ABOUT THE GAME
Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities is the world's most popular novel
(Wikipedia: 200 million copies in print). This is the first time the story has been faithfully adapted into a game.
Every character can interact with every other character and every object in every screen. There are more fully mobile characters than any previous Enter The Story game. Includes over thirty locations to walk between and explore, many filled with people; over 100 musical tracks; mini-games integral to the story, including the storming of the Bastille; a non-stop drama of love, sacrifice, death, and inner and outer conflict.
$7.99, or available in a package of four games for $14.99 All games link together.
To get a feel for the game, and to see some of the characters and locations in action, download Les Miserables (the complete game is now freeware).
A tale of To Cities takes place in London and Paris during and after the events of Les Miserables, and the streets connect together. All the stories in Enter The Story connect, gradually building into the world's biggest adventure game.
AGE RANGE AND SUITABILITY
The game is suitable for all ages who enjoy reading. As with the novel, some characters will die, though careful positioning means nothing too disturbing is seen. This is a family friendly game.
1-8 hours, depending on experience.
