Désiré
game brief: Désiré is colour-blind from birth and he will lead you into in world of black and white. He marches on hesitantly, as life never brought him much joy. From a tender age, he is going to meet several characters who will elicit in Désiré intense emotions and alter his vision in surprising ways. Is colour at the end of the road? The game is, at its core, a critique of the modern world and of the perverting nature of a consumer, profit-obsessed society. (official site)

review: Read my review @ Adventure Gamers® | rating: 1.5/5

summary: If you have a strong masochistic urge to inflict a few hours of excruciating, pretentious sociopolitical ramblings interspersed with bouts of petty cruelty and vulgarity upon yourself, Désiré is the game for you.

review: Read my review @ Adventure Gamers® | rating: 2.5/5

summary: Despite embarking with a sound plan for another beautiful globe-trotting adventure, Lost Horizon 2 suffers from weary execution and assorted technical limitations, eventually losing the way to greatness and ending up in the land of the average.
