Just did Chapter 1 and 2. Chapter 1 took some getting used to and I ended up using their hint site. After finishing I went on to Chapter 2, which felt more natural as I was familiar with the game. For the cost (free) it was fun, multimedia, a couple puzzles, interactive story format. I'll play Chapter 3 if/when it comes out. I'll probably check out the non-digital rooms if I end up in London anytime soon.

This is a very odd game, in a good way, heavy on a very British flavor[u]r of worldbuilding and atmosphere. The puzzles are simple but flow well amid the other material. The game interface is well designed (but watch out because you'll lose game state if you navigate away from the page!).

Medogan immediately stands out from most of the other games in this list. Something like an old-school text adventure in play style, it's instantly atmospheric and intriguing, with an evocative, gently creepy setting and superb use of audio.
The text-adventure game design means that Medogan may not be for everyone, but I enjoyed the narrative-driven, imagination-invoking adventure, and will definitely be on the lookout for Episode 3
A superb game full of intricate details, design and story. It really immerses you into the world Modern Fables are trying to create and is a genuine joy to play. It's not only a phenomenal game, it also make us want to make the trip to London to play their physical games if the quality is anything like this one. We are looking forward to playing episode 2
