Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Virginia 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 9 days ago.
Set in a fictionalised Virginia in 1992, you and your partner, special agent Maria Halperin, travel from location to location interacting with characters and potential clues in the environment. However, as you look into the disappearance of Lucas Fairfax, your trust in your partner is tested. And there's unnerving supernatural goings on.
Along with the film-like pacing and visuals, Virginia is unusual for its omission of any dialogue. Instead, Virginia tells its story through the physicality of characters and the world you pass through.
What results is a game that creates space for thinking and observation. Like Dale Bartholomew Cooper from Twin Peaks, your investigation runs on intuition and instinct rather than puzzle-solving and reason that other games often resort to. Here you proceed by letting yourself get wrapped up in the world of Virginia which, at the same time, is to get lost in someone else's head.
