A date in the park Review
Last Updated: 2016-03-21 07:25:20
A Date in the Park was billed as being influenced by David Lynch and being a big fan I was very excited to see how it played out, however the reality of it is, it comes across more like an educational travelogue for parks in Portugal.
You play a generic English man who is going to meet a girl he met at a party the previous night, the apparently beautiful but rather elusive Catarina who has supplied you with rather ambiguous details to meet by the duck pond in a park where there may well be two or more duck ponds o you must explore the park and discover things and people as you go.
The game is all made from photos rather than graphics which does make it look a little strange and it’s not impossible that is where the David Lynch comparisons come in because I was hoping for more weirdness in the actual game itself, however it does have a strange charm to it and as it continues you do start hoping the protagonist will find his date and there are a few surprises in store along the way that make the game a little more interesting but some of it can just feel to empty when you are wandering from one picture to the next and especially when after exploring the park once you have to go back and do it all again for other reasons.
While certainly not the worst game ever it doesn’t quite fit in to the so bad it’s good category and it’s not good enough to be in the good category a kind of a game worth checking out if you’re bored but don’t expect to come back to it again after you have played it through once.
