The-Vanishing-of-Ethan-Carter

Adventure games tend to have a set narrative, they like to guide you by the hand and lead you through the scenes to make sure you are doing things right and not deviating from the set path.  This has worked ever since the origins of computer games, right back to text-based adventures so why change…
