Gemini Rue is one of the most impressive indie games of 2011. While most indie games cater to the ADD crowd Gemini Rue  is slow, meticulous and forces you to burn a few calories. Gemini Rue plays like an interactive crime novel. In addition to the excellent gameplay, the graphics and aesthetics perfectly compliment the poit of the game. See synopsis below.


Gemini Rue is an intense adventure set in a bleak future dominated by the corrupt Boryokudan crime syndicate. Players assume the roles of two very different characters: Azriel Odin, an ex-assassin-turned police informant searching for a defector from the Gemini system, and “Delta-Six,” a hospital inmate whose memory has been wiped by mysterious, Big Brother types. As fate brings the two men together, players explore a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a simple quest for redemption can change an entire galaxy’s fate.
