tuftears: Lynx Wynx (Gaming)
Hey, a Kickstarter game actually came out and was good!

J.U.L.I.A>: Among the Stars just came out, and being in a mood for some science fiction adventuring, I fired it up.

First of all, this is not a shooter or RPG. You won't be picking up weapons and shooting aliens.

This is a game all about exploration. It's similar to traditional point-and-click games, but it's different enough in presentation that it feels fresh and immersive. There's lots to explore, but every location is meaningful; you won't be roaming across miles of open territory wondering where the plot went. That said, there was one puzzle that seemed impossible to solve where I had to cheat a bit, but there were lots of other good puzzles that yielded to old-fashioned brainwork.

I really enjoyed it; it ticks off the exciting 'Space: the Final Frontier' vibes that Waking Mars did, making you feel like you're roaming a star system and uncovering its secrets.

Game length is about 8 hours. It's $20 at the moment, so for the budget conscious, you might want to wait for a sale and pick it up then, but I don't regret backing it on Indiegogo.

A bit belatedly, but here're the pictures I took when [livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx and I visited the Star Wars exhibit at the San Jose Tech Museum!
