How Flashback Broke New Ground

Flashback:The Quest for Identity was radically different from the rest of 1992’s gaming crop. Pseudo-cinematic cutscenes, a complex plot, remarkably smooth animation, and creative game mechanics made the game unforgettable for anyone who played it. While its sequel and remake failed miserably and poisoned the property, the original game remains brilliant and preceded the modern trend toward games with more serious stories and characters. This article should explore these aspects of the game as well as how echoes of the game are present in today’s games.

  • One of my personal favorites from then. You could also look into the Another World game series and how widely Flashback was ported across consoles and computers. – Misagh 6 years ago
