An orphaned teen and a friendly ghost band together to seek lost truths, in this point-and-click-style adventure game for Nintendo DS. Players take the role of Ashley Robbins, whose scientist parents mysteriously disappeared ten years earlier while researching human memory. An unexpected letter, allegedly written by her father, leads Ashley to a remote and mysterious place called Blood Edward Island. Here, she meets D, a woeful spirit who has been robbed of all his memories. Together, the two must solve the mysteries of the forgotten island to recover what they have lost.
I love the game Trace Memory. It’s storyline is so captivating. Even though it only lasts 5 hours, I have replayed to have a total play time of about 24 hours! I was holding out for Nintendo to announce something new from the developer (Cing) and they didn’t hold back!
Hotel Dusk: Room 215, is a game similar to Trace in the presentation wise. It appears to be top down, and have the same unique art style. But this time the game is in 3d First person (compared to Traces prerendered pictures), and the characters are animated. Here’s what the Nintendo site says:
Los Angeles, 1979. You are Kyle Hyde, an ex-cop turned salesman trying to track down a missing friend. Clues lead you to an eerie, old hotel rumored to have one very strange room – a room where wishes are granted. It’s up to you to unravel the mystery in Hotel Dusk: Room 215, a gritty new graphic adventure for Nintendo DS.
- Players hold their Nintendo DS like a book and use the touch screen to grill characters, search for clues and solve mystifying puzzles.
- Players follow the plot twists and turns as they hunt for their missing friend and investigate the mysteries of Hotel Dusk.
