Reversion Chapter 1: The Escape
game brief: You wake up in a hospital with no memories. You are in Buenos Aires in year 2035 and the city is under the control of a military organization. Suddenly, you realize that your life is in danger and that you need to escape as fast as possible. What would you do faced with such a situation? (alternate download site)

mini-review: As a prologue to a multi-part adventure, Reversion Chapter 1: The Escape does its job – to introduce the scenario and the primary cast - effectively enough. However, despite the admirable production quality, it is a very short and easy game, and it’s arguable whether it evokes sufficient interest in its plot and characters, or ends on enough of a cliffhanger to make you clamour for the next part. But the irresistible offer of the PC version being available as a free download makes it worth the hour to test if the series is for you.
