To celebrate the release of "A tale of two cities",Charles Dickens' classic story of the French Revolution, Chris Tolworthy, developer of the "Enter the Story" saga, is giving Les Miserables for free!

Quote:
ABOUT ENTER THE STORY
Enter The Story is a thirty year project to convert one hundred of the world’s greatest classics into adventure games. This will include all thirty seven of Shakespeare’s plays. The next story is the Count of Monte Cristo, scheduled for release before Christmas. Players can vote on the next story to adapt, and can send in their photos and have their likenesses used for characters in the game. All profits from the game go to research solutions to global poverty.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT
Every character can interact with every other character and every object in every screen. There are more fully mobile characters than any previous Enter The Story game. Includes over thirty locations to walk between and explore, many filled with people; over 100 musical tracks; mini-games integral to the story, including the storming of the Bastille; a non-stop drama of love, sacrifice, death, and inner and outer conflict.

PRICE
$7.99, or available in a package of four games for $14.99 All games link together.

DEMO
To get a feel for the game, and to see some of the characters and locations in action, download Les Miserables (the complete game is now freeware).
http://enterthestory.com/games/Les_Miserables_Setup.exe
A tale of To Cities takes place in London and Paris during and after the events of Les Miserables, and the streets connect together. All the stories in Enter The Story connect, gradually building into the world’s biggest adventure game.

AGE RANGE AND SUITABILITY
The game is suitable for all ages who enjoy reading. As with the novel, some characters will die, though careful positioning means nothing too disturbing is seen. This is a family friendly game.

PLAYING TIME
1-8 hours, depending on experience.



Screenshots can be seen on the official site HERE.

These are the games already released:


Enjoy! happydance

I remember playing Les Miserable (demo) when it first came out. I thought it was pretty cool. I'm off to download the free game now. Thanks Carla for letting us know.

Is there any kind of a walkthrough for Les Miserables or is it just exploration?

Ruthie -- there is a graduated hint system in the game. When you're stuck, you can go back to Heaven and talk to Victor Hugo. If you keep bugging him, eventually he'll give you more and more explicit hints.
