Indigo Prophecy is an adventure game developed by Quantic Dream and published by Atari. It was released on the
Xbox, Playstation 2, and the PC. It was written and directed by David Cage. It's a dark, cinematic thriller that will be extremely difficult to put down.
Indigo Prophecy is the American version of the game. It is called Fahrenheit elsewhere. It was released in Europe on
September 14, 2005, and in America on September 20th, 2005. However, a shipping problem caused the game to not reach stores
until a few days later.
Indigo Prophecy starts out in the bathroom of a small diner in New York City. You are put in the shoes of Lucas Kane,
who has just unwillingly murdered an innocent man. The game takes you along an interactive adventure in which you search
for the truth. Why did you kill that man? Why are you having visions? Why have you noticed that you are becoming
stronger? You must find the answers to all these questions, all the while avoiding the police, who are hot on your
This game puts you in the unique position of letting you play as both Lucas Kane and two police detectives: Tyler
Miles and Carla Valenti. So you are running from yourself while simultaneously trying to hunt yourself down.
The game's cinematic elements work perfectly. The music will set the mood so well, you may find yourself jumping in
surprise or fear a few times early in the game. The game will go into splitscreen at some points, letting you follow the
actions of two or more different characters. And you will find yourself deeply attached to the characters. So much so,
that when you find the characters you control clashing directly, you are genuinely unsure of who to root for.
If there is one problem with this game, it is that some of the plot twists in the second half will leave you
scratching your head. But this is by far made up for by the many excellent moments that leave you stunned. I was worried
and nervous when the police showed up at my apartment and wanted to look around.
The main idea was to make Indigo Prophecy a kind of interactive movie. It uses a Simon Says style mini-game to progress
through the interactive cut-scenes. These mini-games are very similar to those in Shenmue.
It was a sleeper hit, selling extremely well in Europe and less so in America. There was a large controversy about the
censoring of several sex scenes in the game for the American version, to avoid an Adults only rating. It managed to
keep the Mature rating for Blood, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Violence, and Use of Drugs and
Many would agree that the soundtrack and excellent voice acting are the best things about the game. The game
also included a large number of unlockable sequences, artwork, movies, music, and more.
While this may not be the longest game ever(it can be completed in about 10 hours), it is well worth its price tag of
$40. The graphics aren't amazing, but they're good enough to get the job done, and the audio is probably the best in any
game I've ever played. So, even though you may never have heard of it before, it'd be a mistake to let this one slip by
