Games are a popular gift for Christmas and there are many out there that have been released just in time for the holidays. While often forgotten among a myriad of console and handheld titles, computer games can be more affordable and should not be overlooked. Big Fish Games is one the companies out there who have a huge range of games from arcade to brain-teasers with over 10 categories to play including puzzles. Their latest — and what seems to be one of their most ambitious games yet — is Drawn: Dark Flight. With a strong storyline, this is one of those games that allows you to immerse yourself in a new world and see something new every time you sit down to play Not only that, but it is unique in its artistic presentation visually and musically.
The distinctiveness of this game has to do with the creative pacing that has gone the distance with an incredible musical score that both pushes the drama and dynamic gameplay. Clean Cuts is the production house behind the score and they closely collaborated with the game development team. More than just having songs change with the player’s actions, Clean Cuts helped craft musical puzzles within the game itself.
I do find with the title that if I don’t pay attention to what I am doing and seeing within the game that I have to go retrace my steps to find the clues to solve puzzles. While the best games often make you do that, it can be frustrating. However, here it is definitely worthwhile because the “reveal” of the objects needed to solve puzzles can be pretty interesting.
I have been able to interview the two co-producers/creative directors of Drawn: Dark Flight — Brian Thompson and Chris Campbell — and it was definitely an interesting interview.
