Have You Played... Richard & Alice?
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
No, Richard & Alice [official site] is not some fan fiction about the time Richard Cobbett and Alice O'Connor fought spacecrime together, although now damn I wish it were. It is in fact a small, very lovely, very sad little adventure game.
With very obvious leads taken from McCarthy's The Road, Richard & Alice is a beautiful, miserable story told superbly. And to add any more is to take away. It's less than a fiver on Steam. Trust me.
