Start with an Agatha Christie novel, stir in some delicious anime art, sprinkle in tons of clever brain-stumping puzzles, and you get Four Thirty Three's "The Secret of Chateau de Moreau." While not without some translation flaws, it's a truly gripping marriage of videogame and narrative. Here's to hoping there's more where this came from!
Stop the presses -- "Emissary of War" is going for a buck now!? Hardcore RPG fans will find it short and its gameplay lightweight, but its story and production values are difficult to pass up at this lowered price tier. If you're an RPG fan of any stripe, you are definitely advised to check out the freely downloadable first half at least.
