Unrelenting rain drums on the tin roof of the shelter. I huddle from the chill in my standard-issue trench coat, bathed in the cool glow of the data terminal. This is how every adventure game should begin.
I guess there's room for other genres, but there's something comforting about the cold and dreary future of Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue, the pixelated PC masterpiece now available on iOS. A dark and dangerous Blade Runner-esque future might not seem like the ideal destination for humanity, but I love the thought of once-sterile technology tarnished in the rain, fighting against nature for its place in the world.
