Each edition of So I Tried… I will try a game that I have never tried before. Will I find something new to love? Will I find something new to despise? I'll take a full half hour, no matter how bad it gets or how badly I do, to see if this is the game for me. This time I went for the PC version of Bohemian Killing.
What I thought it was
From what I can remember, it’s a first person mystery game, where you have to solve a murder. Or commit a murder and get away with it… One of those. Maybe something about a courtroom? In any case, it’s a period piece, so it’ll be nice to look at.
What it actually is
You’re on trial for the murder of your childhood friend, and you have to prove that you didn’t do it. Or did do it. It appears that it’s entirely up to you, because most of the game appears to be your testimony, where you relive the night in question. Walk around the street, participate in events that the prosecutor claimed to have happened, and find ways to prove that they didn’t quite happen that way.
Will I keep playing
Well, I’ve got to prove my innocence! Though I’m pretty sure I’m guilty as hell. It’s difficult to tell, when you could be mad as a basket of pears! It’s an interesting premise, and I don’t hate games that take place as memories. I might play it through a couple of times, just to see the different possibilities.
