  • Summary: In the classic story And Then There Were None, 10 people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Shipwreck Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear. On the island, they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they die... Agatha Christie fans, and newcomers to the genre, can look forward to a series of unexpected turns; although the storyline stays true to the original concept, players will encounter new plot twists. The first comes in the form of an 11th character, the player, a boatman who brings the others to the island and then is trapped there himself. To save the lives of the intended victims, the player must unravel the motives behind the murders and uncover the identity of the killer. If successful, he will spare not only the lives of the remaining guests, but also his own. [The Adventure Company] Expand

  1. It's a great introduction, and sets a high standard. Christie fans, detective game fans, and adventure game fans won't want to miss this.
  2. Despite these few quibbles, I’ve had more fun with this game than most of the other adventure games I’ve played lately. A good, professional job.
  3. It feels like developer Awe Games worked out all of the dramatic scenes in the game, but then had trouble figuring out how to incorporate puzzles into the story, and then ran out of time before they could come up with an answer. As a result, the puzzles in And Then There Were None are equal parts laughable, bizarre, and inconsequential.

    Its story is masterful, woven by an absolute master of the genre. However, the graphical flaws and awkward missteps keep this from being a truly great game.
  5. It hits certain points well enough that fans of the genre who are willing to overlook the somewhat tired gameplay formula will be rewarded with good atmosphere.
  6. An enjoyable murder mystery with many excellent elements, but it is let down by sloppy implementation and inattention to detail.
  7. Text can't be skipped, which may be fine for a dramatic piece of dialogue, but is eminently frustrating when you're having to wait for your character to lengthily tell you that you can't do something for the umpteenthmillionth time.
