Today’s deal is the Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered!
Many people who aren’t “in the know” often let this game slide under their radar, but whether you know it as Farenheit or Indigo Prophecy, David Cage cinematic narrative classic is a masterclass in how to make games feel like super weird weird movies. Obviously, we don’t have the kind of Hollywood pull to actually get famous people to weigh in, but through the magic of lying, anything is possible!
“I’ll tell ya, I’ve never played one of these videos that are games before, but when I saw that it was called Farenheit, I set it up to play in a bikram yoga studio. I stabbed a man to death while I wasn’t in control of my body and got attacked by giant bugs until the computer fizzled out from the steam. I was really sweating there, David. Good job.” -David Lynch
“Who was controlling you during the murder? Sometimes I think we consider life too precious. In the end, people just end up as game pieces for the larger forces at work. A single life isn’t so important in the grand scheme. Who was controlling anyone during what murder? The answer honestly really surprised me.” -Ari Aster
“You know, you boot up a computer game, and it’s by David Cage, and the question I have is, what really constitutes a computer? What is a game? Is running away from the Terminator a computer game? Is destroying the Matrix a computer game? Who’s the game designer then, you know what I mean? My point is, all games are exactly like this and it’s existentially upsetting.” -Charlie Brooker
