Originally released about a decade back, Fahrenheit is “interactive narrative” that was originally known in North America as the Indigo Prophecy. At the time, the game was cross-platform, running on XBox, PS2, Mac, PC, and Linux. The game utilizes a heavy cinematic approach with a branching storyline, so there is lots to look at.
Players will assume the role of Lucas Kane in Fahrenheit, who starts out the game by being possessed and compelled to stab a person to death. As he attempts to move past this horror, he begins to hallucinate and seeks the help of a medium. From there, the story picks up with other murders happening and police pursuit, all racing towards one of three endings. The release for mobile brings with it a visual face-lift, with updating the textures, touch controls, and the option to toggle between the new look and the original on the fly.
