Agatha Christie And Then There Were None Game Review

For the first love of murder for my Agatha Christie themed valentines themed post for the month is Agatha Christie And Then There Were None by The Adventure Company.  The game was released in October 27, 2005 and it was the first game in the series produced The Adventure Company.  Out of all the adventure games played this one for some strange reason is my favorite.  So let's get started!

And Then There Were None: First Line in 10 Little Sailor Boys Poem

 "Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None is the first title in a series of games based on the books from legendary mystery author, Agatha Christie. In this classic story, 10 people -- each with something to hide and something to fear -- are invited to a lonely mansion on Shipwreck Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear. On the island, they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they die...

Agatha Christie fans, and newcomers to the genre, can look forward to a series of unexpected turns; although the storyline stays true to the original concept, players will encounter new plot twists."

When it comes to graphics, during this time the graphics were pretty good, though they can be a little blocky.  This game is over 15+ years old as 2020, but still I find the graphic in a way a classic to older point and click adventure games.  For most of the game you are located on Shipwreck Island, owned by Mr. U.N. Owens.  Though there is plenty to explore in the world, you are slightly secluded on the map.

When it comes to the storyline, this storyline is not the same as the book.  Without spoiling anything in the game, there are a possibility of four endings.  The original ending that Agatha Christie wrote, or the possibility to change the fait of two of the characters.  Since you are playing a third character in the game that did not exist in the original story this in a way gives you the opportunity to explore the other possibilities of what the game has to offer.

When it comes to puzzles in the game, they are pretty simple.  However, you have to be very careful about not missing clues in the game.  Its pretty easy to get lost while playing but if you keep your eyes peeled and have a keen observation then you'll be fine.  I somewhat struggled to find everything and succumbed to cheating a few times as I wanted all of the endings.

Thank you for reading everyone.  I highly recommend that if you ever get a chance to play or even watch this game to do so.  I was highly captivated with the story since I'm a fan of Agatha Christie's stories as they have been turned into games or even tv shows.  Normally I would put links to where you can get a copy of the game for yourself, however it seems that the games are not sold on Steam or very rarely on Amazon.  If you are lucky then you might find a package deal of And Then There Were None, Murder On The Orient Express, and Evil Under The Sun in a Triple Murder Pack here.  If you haven't yet, check out my other Agatha Christie Game Reviews.

Until next time,
