Now and then I go back to the big long list of games that was inluded in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality and come across a gem. This time it's Code 7, a really engrossing hacking adventure.
Okay, to be truthful, I was poked about this by our contributor and podcast co-op star Samsai who mentioned some time ago how good it is. Sadly, it continued slipping down my list until I said — no more! I'm seriously glad I put my gaming finger down and clicked play because Code 7 is genuinely great. A massive surprise that you should seriously check out if you like a wild story adventure.
Seems we actually missed writing about the actual release, even though we did have a mention of the original Kickstarter campaign years ago. It's something of a "next generation" text adventure thanks to the production values that not many pull off well or even attempt to make a splash this big with.
This isn't some basic text adventure with fancy effects. It's a fully voiced story, a proper adventure game that has a really enthralling story to tell and the voice over work is absolutely fantastic. It's an episodic game, with three episodes already out that can give you quite a lot of hours of play time. A fourth episode is in development with a fifth planned, and your choices will carry forward and "determine the course of the last episode" - not that we can see how just yet since it's not finished.
