Kathy Rain: A Detective Is Born Review


Set in the 90’s and has that artistic style of a genuine 90’s era point ‘n’ click adventure game, players take on the role of Kathy Rain. Kathy, while attending college studying journalism, learns of her grandfather’s death and returns to Conwell Springs to attend the funeral. Afterwards, she decides that the mysterious circumstances leading up to his death warrant a closer look so she decides to start investigating.

She soon gets her dormmate and best friend, Eileen Summers, involved when she discovers a link to a girl named Lily Myers who committed suicide, a local church called ‘The Order of The Holy Trinity’ and a mysterious entity that is known as ‘The Crimson One’

Along the way, Kathy must face her own personal demons and learn to overcome them.

My thoughts

Being a fan of point ‘n’ click adventure games, I was looking for one that would really satisfy me; I really those like that feature police detectives or private detectives or FBI agents on the hunt for serial killers but after looking at artistic style and playing the demo, I was hooked and had to get the full version.

The story-telling was excellent and the puzzles weren’t too hard, although I had to use a walkthrough to clear some of them. But I have to say it had the feel of a Silent Hill game toward the end. Overall a very good game and worth the money!

My Score: 9 / 10
