Priced at $9.99/€9.99/£7.99, the Landmark Edition includes graphical and gameplay updates, refinements, and Directors’ Commentary from the team at The Chinese Room:
The Directors’ Commentary of Dear Esther: Landmark Edition unites Jessica Curry, Dan Pinchbeck and Rob Briscoe for the first time years as they reacquaint themselves with the game which made The Chinese Room a globally known development studio. The commentary offers first-hand insight on never-before-heard details, and provides a fresh perspective on the game’s development and legacy.
A “faithful port of the Source engine original onto Unity 5,” Dear Esther: Landmark Edition also includes remastered audio, larger subtitles, a crosshair, Trophies/Achievements, and menus and subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish and Russian. This is all in addition to the original’s field of view and brightness sliders and controller sensitivity.
Here’s the description for Dear Esther:
Dear Esther is a narrative-focused first-person adventure that takes place on an uninhabited Hebridean island, upon which a lone man must piece together the chain of events that led to his wife’s death. Eschewing traditional gameplay to present a truly story-driven experience, the game composes a beautifully detailed world and an emotional tale that has inspired an entire genre of games. Dear Esther was originally developed as an experimental visual and aural experience using the Source game engine, and earned multiple awards alongside critical acclaim following its original release on Windows PC in 2012.
