Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist
1.2 hours, 6 of 6 achievements
A fifteen-minute freebie made by one half of the team that made the Stanley Parable, it’s a little gem that takes some of the more meta-game notions explored in good ol the S. P. and goes a bit deeper in on them. While I don’t want to compare it to the Beginner’s Guide, because they’re just very different experiences, I liked how I got to see how the two creators of one very unique went and did their own things in completely different ways that still had their origin at the same point. It’s cool!
Dr. Langeskov and the Short Game Long Name brings my worst fever dreams to life, marriyng game development and the tension of live theatre. It imagines the game - Dr. Langeskov - as a theatre production for one, and you, hapless player, meander around the backstage areas while the ‘real’ game is being played by someone else. The rest is up to the plaiyng.
It takes a couple run throughs to pick up all the achievements, and I liked looking around at everything. A very nice walking sim, and another addition to the ‘meta is betta!’ stable of statement pieces. Give it a shot!
