Virginia is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but if you haven't had the chance to try the demo yet, maybe it would be wise to take a quick look at some of the following videos. Developer Variable State designed a fully narrative experience in which gameplay mechanics are extremely limited. The emphasis is clearly on story and atmosphere, with a movie approach to the way the story is delivered. You go from one scene to another with no transition, making it difficult to understand what is going on at first, and the point of all this is to let the player connect all the dots together. The absence of dialogues is also justified by the desire to deliver a story differently than in most games. Being focused on narration only - even though there are some minor interactions with the world -, it does not take long to complete, about 2 hours, but it's still a journey worth taking if you like thrillers.
Note: Strangely enough, the developers say the game is best played at 30 fps, which would be fine if the frame-rate felt smooth at 30 on PC. You can of course choose to lock the frame-rate at 60, which makes it better overall, but it's still not perfectly smooth. We haven't seen the game on consoles, so we don't know if the 30 fps cap works better.

and down - that was a review for alien resurrection in 2000. i found it kind of funny that gamespot complained about that, given that's how all games work now on consoles. (9 Hours ago)
The game's control setup is its most terrifying element. The left analog stick moves you forward, back, and strafes right and left, while the right analog stick turns you and can be used to look up (9 Hours ago)
