When evil has more than one face, you need more than one perspective.

Quote:
New York, NY / August 3rd, 2010 – Viva Media is excited to announce the release of its newest adventure game, Alter Ego. Using gorgeous graphics and a compelling storyline, the game pushes adventure and mystery into new depths where right and wrong isn’t so clearly defined.

The year is 1894 and the recent grave robbing of a local aristocrat has sent the town into hysteria, inspiring a long string of subsequent murders. The desecration comes at a high cost given the significance of the enshrined Sir William “The White Beast” Lewis. His wretched past, stained by rumors of murder and debauchery, has tattooed itself onto the living memory of Plymouth and has caused many to speculate a supernatural explanation, suggesting Sir William, himself, has risen from the grave and killed those connected to his legacy.

You’ll play as both Inspector Briscol and pickpocket Timothy Moor, two men who couldn’t be more dissimilar: one is a man of law and justice and the other is a man who can slip into back alleyways, brothels, and lowly pubs, and yet they’re united by their common interest in solving the crime of the century. Let’s just hope they find the murderer before murder finds them!

Key Features

Original dark point & click adventure
Exciting storyline with complex characters
Beautiful cinematic scenes
2 playable characters
30 NPC characters
80 game locations
150 items to collect and combine


Happy Gaming!

I seem to recall reading about this game a looong time ago and thinking that playing 2 such opposite characters as a policeman and a pickpocket would make for an interesting game. So I reckon I will buy it from Amazon since I'm splurging on games celebrating my birthday week! I can't wait until Sunday, time's a-wastin'!

Now I'm confused...went to Amazon to order, but the game is listed as Alter Ego MBX...so what is that MBX all about? Does that stand for some type of action in the game, or something extra needed on the computer to play it, or whatever?

If I undestand this correctly from Wikipedia, MBX are chips found in handheld machines like consoles or palm readers.
Maybe a tech or someone knowledgeable on this subject can clarify it for us.

Not being on the Viva site doesn't mean anything negative about the game's release -- in the past I've noticed that Viva is slow to add games they're released to their website. It will eventually show up there. grin

I checked at Amazon again and this time I read the Product Description farther down and I found this: "A dark, macabre storyline that combines horror, adventure and role-playing elements to create a gripping murder mystery." Role-playing? Combine that with the MBX in the title and I'm going to pass on this one. At least until I know more about it after reading some reviews.

The game sells for $30.59 + $4.82 shipping at Amazon.

I have noticed this game on Steam for $ 26.99

They do charge local tax though. Will be close to $30.00. after the tax man.

What a great game wait until you start playing it. All point and click,You have to use inventory items and combine them together. Pure adventure and no fighting and no timer. Not to hard to play so no walkthrough needed. I got it through steam.
