The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

Just played through this in one sitting, and thought it was fantastic. I liked Life Is Strange as well, even though I’m only on episode 3 of that (and I really do need to get back to it to play the rest), but I think I preferred this. Just a great little self-contained experience, with a wonderful “feel,” and really beautiful environments (like that opening scene with the Sufjan Stevens song playing). The only thing I thought was lame was the phone unlock puzzle — it’s the only one I couldn’t solve, and when I looked it up online, realized that there’s no way I would have solved that, and it makes no sense narratively. But it doesn’t change that I loved playing this, and I can’t recommend it enough — and hey, it’s free.
