Jordan Mechner’s beloved adventure game The Last Express is now available from DotEmu. For a mere $9.99, you get a digital download of the game compatible with modern computers (XP-Win7, 32 & 64-bit), the soundtrack, a making-of and a walkthrough. Physical copies of the game are somewhat easy to find online, but they’ll set you back $20-30 bucks. Why not purchase the cheaper version and use the money you save for aspirin to combat the headache you'll get from trying to solve some of the game’s puzzles?
Mechner, best known for creating the Prince of Persia series, told an intriguing tale in The Last Express. The story revolves around a doctor named Robert Cath (aka you) summoned to meet an old friend on the Orient Express three days prior to the start of World War 1. After boarding the train, you find yourself in a web of “betrayal, romance and political conspiracy.” Titillating, right? Click here to check out some screenshots and purchase the game.
