“A deserted island…a lost man…memories of a fatal crash…a book written by a dying explorer.”

Two years in the making, the highly anticipated Indie remake of the cult mod Dear Esther arrives on PC. Dear Esther immerses you in a stunningly realised world, a remote and desolate island somewhere in the outer Hebrides. As you step forwards, a voice begins to read fragments of a letter: "Dear Esther..." - and so begins a journey through one of the most original first-person games of recent years. Abandoning traditional gameplay for a pure story-driven experience, Dear Esther fuses it’s beautiful environments with a breathtaking soundtrack to tell a powerful story of love, loss, guilt and redemption.

Winner of 2012 IGF Excellence in Visual Art. Supported by Indie Fund.

I bought this game, but each time I want to play it, it makes me start over from the beginning, no matter how far around the island I managed to go the last time I played. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks! Otherwise, a really compelling experience.

Bought the game yesterday, it was pretty cool. Different than most i've played. Graphics are great. Can't wait to see what you guys end up doing with Amnesia A Machine for Pigs.
