    Deep, interactive storytelling

    Stunning environments

    Experience the windswept cliffs and tense atmosphere of a small Hebridean island as a voice reads aloud a letter that begins: "Dear Esther..." These fragments of correspondence uncover the tragedies, triumphs and legacies of the island's former inhabitants. However, if nothing seems real here, it's because it may all just be a delusion.

    With a breath-taking original soundtrack and stunningly-detailed environments to lose yourself in, Dear Esther eschews more traditional gaming conventions to deliver a narrative experience driven more by atmosphere than mechanics.

    Oozing with mystery and an aching sense of loss, the true adventure in Dear Esther is the one within – an excursion across the rugged landscape of human experience.
