‘We will be highlighting the reason why it is worthy for this prize,’ (the curator) added, noting the game’s attention to detail in costuming, music and atmosphere.
‘I’ve never been so excited to just watch a video game, never mind playing it,’ said Sellers. ‘It is really great to see all the details and feel the nuances. Playing it is even better.’
I must say, I have to agree. It’s easily one of the best games I’ve ever played; insanely playable and full of amazing attention to detail.

It’s just (interactive) fiction.
