Together with your partner, seasoned investigator Maria Halperin, you’ll take a trip to idyllic Burgess County and the secluded town of Kingdom, Virginia, where a young boy has vanished and nobody seems to know why. 
Before long Anne will find herself negotiating competing interests, uncovering hidden agendas and testing the patience of a community unaccustomed to uninvited scrutiny. 
As your investigation takes a turn for the sinister, and the list of suspects grows ever larger and stranger, you will make decisions which irrevocably shape the course of Anne’s and agent Halperin’s lives.

A great blessing (the words) is removed for an intuitive-narrative experience!


Virginia could easily have been a complicated psychodrama if it did not remove the dialogues! a psycho-drama or psychic drama, is a story which the main character of the story (in the case of a narrator) or narrator does not have mental state. Given the fact that he's the narrator of the story and his/her mental imbalance, we are faced with a visual psychodrama. (Of course, the psycho-drama is a therapeutic option for psychiatric patients who treat him/her with giving him/her a role). The colors and lights used in the environment have been revived thanks to the artistic graphics (which has been selected for that particular stain) and make us communicate with the story world of the game. The importance of artistic graphics as well as artistic design in such a game that is intended to endanger and removes the dialogues is very high, since a large part of the characterization is in the hands of the images! the art designers of the game with all due care and attention to the personality of the people designed bedroom and their work place. The music of the game, thanks to the excellent performance and recording, is the other part of the narrative of the game, and with its rhythm and harmony, each stage is determined and the picture becomes more vivid. Virginia is worthy of being seen as compromising itself and challenging the subject of cinematic narratives in games! and It works somewhat well! although it was possible to give the audience a better experience with more precision in elements of the game. I hope that this risk in narration will affect the other elements of narrative games. Fortunately, such games that challenge stories are not few, maybe these titles are not my favorite games, but they are essential to enrich the stories.

Impressive story!


Virginia is a single-player first-person thriller. The game takes place in the last days of summer 1992, the player takes control of Anne Tarver, a graduate FBI special agent assigned to her first case. You investigate the disappearance of a young boy. As a rookie detective, you get a experienced partner, Maria Halperin. Tarver's superiors instruct you to keep a watchful eye on her... The special aspect of Virginia is that in the whole game no word is spoken at all. Instead of dialogue, the story in Virginia is told through the physical performances of its characters. There is not much interaction, you can collect some objects but more or less it fits to the walking simulator categorie. The game needs something around two hours to be finished. The music is wonderful and fits perfectly to the atmosphere of the game. Virginia manages to tell a deeply engaging story about friendship, loyalty, betrayal and identity, without using a single word of dialogue. From my point of view Virginia was a great experience and was worth its price.

Good but you will be confused


This was a great, beautiful little story. One that I'm very glad I bought. But it's 100% dependent on story. The fact that they're even able to tell such a understandable story without a single line of dialouge is hugely impressive

Beautiful style and music, but a lot of lost potential


Virginia is a cool cinematic FPS game. The story is intriguing - it's about an investigation of a missing person. I liked the visual style and the atmosphere - everything looks so cartoonish and yet in a way misterious. I loved the music - it's very suitable for this kind of storytelling. I find the cinematic approach really compelling - there are some scenes that look exactly like taken from a thriller movie. These moments are, unfortunatelly, just a few and most of the time it feels a little cliched. What I didn't like is the way you control your character and move the camera - in my opinion the motion blur is too much and makes it kind of slow, it can cause you motion sickness. Also, the game takes not more than 2 hours to complete and there is hardly anything to do besides going through the main story. Sometimes it can get a little boring. In conclusion, I feel like this game has a lot of lost potential and could be far better than what it actually is. But, if you like the movies of David Lynch and don't expect too much, you should give it a try.
