Tritrie Games and Assemble Entertainment have released Jessika, a full-motion video (FMV) thriller mystery with Linux PC support and it looks very interesting.
Dealing with mature themes like suicide, it puts you in the position of a special investigator hired by the family of Jessika looking through the digital footprints of the deceased to find out what happened. What at first seems to be a job like any other quickly develops into a dark drama with twists and turns. You need to dig through video files, audio clips, notes, and more to piece the real story together.
"Jessika is a game that we’ve really fallen for," said Assemble Entertainment CEO Stefan Marcinek. "It is unlike anything else in our roster and perhaps one of the most compelling stories of the human condition. You won’t be able to help yourself from getting completely entangled in the story of Jessika."
Wonderful to see more FMV games come out, as it's quite a rare genre now and it seems like the early user reviews on Steam for Jessika give it a pretty reasonable score. If you enjoy other investigative games, take a look.
You can buy Jessika on Steam.
