Hamlet mif2000 / Alawar Games 2010

In this twisted classic adventure game based on William Shakespeare's Hamlet, a man from the future arrives in Hamlet's time just as the Danish hero is about to seek revenge for the death of his parents and rescue his beloved Ophelia from her captors. Unfortunately, he crash lands right on top of Hamlet, and he must now assume Hamlet's place in order to prevent the "history" of the world from radically changing. Over the course of 5 chapters consisting of 25 individual locations, players must solve a series of logic-based environmental puzzles in order to proceed. Along the way, you'll meet the main characters in Hamlet, from Claudius and Polonius to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, plus some new characters as well. You'll also encounter all the key events of the play, though of course the game won't play out exactly like the original. There are even some lighthearted "boss fights", though these are purely puzzle-based rather than action-oriented. Hamlet features simple but stylish hand-drawn comic graphics, though the gameplay is somewhat reminiscent of Samorost. The protagonist is mute (although the current goal can be identified through his emanating "thought bubbles"), and the interface uses a single cursor with no inventory, hotspots highlights or verbal/text feedback of any kind. This challenges players to work out solutions and successful sequences only through direct interaction and observation.
