Background Story -------------------------------------------------

It’s 1972. Love is free. Flipflops, English leather and bandanas are the height of fashion. Meanwhile the Cold War is more than lukewarm and a real one is going on overseas. Movements are happening. Environmentalists, the female liberties movement, and on the dance floors an entirely different kind of movement is overtaking the underground clubs. The winds of change are certainly blowing over the country.

Somewhere in the big city, in a tall, faceless government building someone left a window open. All the winds of change are doing here is blowing leaves all over Joe’s newly-swept floor. He’s been there for two years now. Working a dead-end attendant job making sure the building is as spotless as the suits walking the halls. It’s been like this for years, going from one soul-devouring job to the next.

Our protagonist is Joe in more than just name. He is quite literally Joe Average. Average height, average weight, average IQ. In fact, the only thing remotely remarkable about him is exactly how much he conforms to the median of the hypothetical everyman, and up until this point, Joe’s life hasn't exactly been biography material.

This is all about to change...

Bon jeu !!!

Très bon jeu bien réalisé on s’accroche à l’histoire et malheureusement il faut payer pour le deuxième chapitre :/

Très bon Point&Click

Scénario déjà vu avec des énigmes trop simples, cependant, la real' de ce jeu est dingue de tous les points de vues et le gameplay assez intéressant bien que basique. Gros point négatif tout de même, il faut compter environ 20 minutes de gameplay pour le 1er chapitre qui est gratuit puis débourser la somme conséquente de 5€ pour pouvoir avoir accès au second chapitre qui paraît-il est plus long... dans tous les cas, je ne crois pas que cela justifie un tel prix !
Amertume assez décevante à cause de ce dernier point mais relevons quand même que ce jeu est très bon !

Excellent puzzle

Réalisation super soignée, ambiance captivante et personnage central attachant sont les principales qualités de ce jeu. En bonus, j’ai adoré les clins d’œil à l’univers de la fin des 60ies. Le jeu est certes court mais ça m’a permis d’y rejouer au moins deux fois pour profiter des nombreux détails qui parsèment le jeu. Bref, ce fut un excellent moment !
