About the Story

Two tall, austere and well dressed men, almost of etiquette, are standing in the middle of a bridge escorting a third one. The image of the latter - your own image, in fact - is hardly recognizable by the bruises in the face and his ragged clothes. Crest-fallen and with the look put in the abyss, his hands are tied to the back by a rough rope. Around his neck hangs a flaccid rope tied to the base of the old lantern.
Inspired by the short story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge", by Ambrose Bierce.

-- ooOOoo --

Dos hombres altos, adustos y bien vestidos, casi de etiqueta, se sitúan en mitad de un puente escoltando a un tercero. La imagen de este último -tu propia imagen, de hecho- es apenas reconocible por las magulladuras en la cara y su ropa andrajosa. Cabizbajo y con la mirada puesta en el abismo, sus manos permanecen atadas a la espalda con una áspera cuerda. De alrededor de su cuello pende con flacidez una soga amarrada a la base del viejo farol.
Basado en el relato corto "Un suceso en el puente sobre el río del Búho", de Ambrose Bierce.

Editorial Reviews

CAAD: Club de Aventuras AD
Por Fernando Gregoire, urbatain, y Comley
Durante toda la obra notamos una calidad literaria detalladísima e inigualable, sin que lo mucho que hay que leer impida una obra en que debamos decidir mucho y más o menos rápido. Y es que aun cuando salvo en el último escenario no estemos a salvo indefinidamente nunca, ello no es óbice para que la calidad literaria mencionada nos deleite, ni para que el protagonista recuerde cosas de su vida que, para colmo, el que sean aleatorias hace que la historia se vea asaz enriquecida al rejugarla. Tampoco esta aleatoriedad enriquecedora da ganas, por cierto y sin perjuicio de que quizá tenga que ver que en ningún momento vemos la pantalla clásica de si queremos reiniciar y demás, de deshacer en vez de seguir desde el comienzo.

En los últimos tiempos no suele ser habitual dentro de la comunidad de ficción interactiva hispana que aparezcan obras con una intención más literaria. Por eso no es sin una cierta sorpresa que descubrimos esta recientísima "Amanda"...
