When Japanese developer Cing announced a sequel to their Nintendo DS adventure Hotel Dusk: Room 215, fans of the popular "interactive novel" rejoiced, but when the studio filed for bankruptcy after finishing the game, it was uncertain if their swan song would ever see release outside Japan. Fortunately, Nintendo saw potential in the title and published Last Window: The Secret of Cape West in Europe, giving English-speaking gamers the opportunity to follow the ongoing story of Kyle Hyde, a man now searching for something precious and ending up with information he may not want to know. We can certainly be glad they did, as the new game is similar to its predecessor in all the ways that made the original so appealing, but also incorporates a number small improvements that may very well make this Cing's best adventure of all. Although it is not necessary to have played Hotel Dusk, the new story does refer to it a few times and it adds to the enjoyment if you understand these references. In Last Window, things aren't looking too good for our protagonist, the former New York cop.
Last Window is something of a bittersweet release for me. On the one hand, it's the long-awaited sequel to Cing's classic Hotel Dusk - which means the return of goateed detective Kyle Hyde, of the gorgeous hand-sketched art style, and of odd puzzles that find you messing about with doorstops, plastic rulers, and other curiously useful household objects. Unfortunately, it's also the last game that Cing made before it went tits-up at the start of the year - meaning that it's also the end of the road for the franchise.Still, it's strangely appropriate that there's an air of tragedy about Last Window, because the game itself deals fairly heavily in melancholia. Don't let that put you off, though. The story that gradually unfolds here isn't a depressing one; it just happens to focus on a group of characters who've all suffered more than their fair share of Bad Stuff. If you played through Hotel Dusk you'll know that Cing has (or rather, had) a knack for handling this kind of mature material, but if not you might be surprised at the subtlety and emotional depth on display.
