Dear Esther

Developer: The Chinese Room

Year: 2012

Platform: PC


Despite the fact that the game was released in 2012, Dear Esther still looks ridiculously beautiful. All the shots were taken as if I was wandering around the island taking pictures with my full-frame camera (but unfortunately without control over focal length, aperture, and exposure). To be fair, when the game was released it was not very common for games to feature a Photo Mode. The game is very short, so there is not so much visual variation but, despite of this, the environment always looks magical.

Dear Esther does not feature any Photo Mode.
