Love Officially Announces Analogue: A Hate Story
“Back in the 25th century, Earth launched a generation ship into deep space, with the goal of establishing the first interstellar colony. It dropped out of contact and disappeared, never reaching its destination. Thousands of years later, it has finally been found.” Already I’m massively intrigued, and after the sheer brilliance of don’t take it personally, babe, it just ain’t your story who can blame me. Christine Love, always one to shy away from the “indie games developer” title brings us this follow up to Digital: A Love Story which will apparently play in much the same way.
I must admit I found Digital almost obtuse in its insistence on sending you back and forth to find out more of the plot, but it certainly stood out as a challenging and original title. I also don’t have enough brilliant things to say about DTIPB as it was easily one of my favourite games of 2011. Certainly no other game managed to make me feel sick with guilt so I can’t wait to get my hands on the five possible endings of Analogue. Good news as well for Linux and Mac users, it’s available for you too, and it’s not graphics intensive so if you’ve only got a netbook you’ll be fine as long as you’ve got OpenGL.
Analogue: A Hate Story comes out this month at $15. Check out more at
