Classic art nouveau PC game The Last Express is coming to GOG. And though the digital distribution site isn’t offering all the extras of DotEmu’s previously reported “collector’s edition,” which includes the game’s soundtrack, making-of documentary and official walkthrough, they are offering significant savings.
Good Old Games has listed Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner’s underrated PC adventure at the bargain basement price of $5.99. That will get all you fans of locomotive-based murder mysteries a DRM-free copy of the game, along with some slightly second rate bonus items including a reference card and character avatars. But you’re not getting this game for the goodies. You’re getting it for the 40,000 frames or rotoscoped goodness. And at $5.99, that’s less than one ten-thousandth of a penny per frame. I’m preeeeetty sure that means you’d be losing money not to get it.
One warning before breaking out the credit card for you non-English speakers – GOG’s version is English-only and has no subtitles. DotEmu’s version, though $9.99., is multi-lingual friendly, supporting English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
