The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
From store.steampowered.com: “You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan’s home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only local murder worth looking into.”

I was looking forward to playing The Vanishing of Ethan Carter but for £14.99 for a game that seems like it can be completed in only a few hours doesn’t seem like much value for money even if the game is well made and ticks all the correct boxes for these type of adventure games that I love to play. I am going to wait for it to be on sale, however this doesn’t mean no one should buy it now it just whether you can justify paying the full price for a relatively short game.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is available for £14.99 on Steam and £14.99 GoG.com (you get £2.50 credit back) now and will be out sometime in 2015 for PlayStation 4.
