Black Lodge is the much talked about videogame homage to the wildly popular Lynchian cult classic, Twin Peaks. If you’re a fan of the series, you should be all over this game. It’s a beautiful piece that essentially captures the craziness, mystery and magnetic storyline of the original tv show.
The game was created by Jak Lodge and features all the goodness the original storyline has to offer plus a bit more. With amazing Atari 2600 style, the game is playable for both Mac and PC. It also comes with a manual that the developer encourages you to read first before starting.
The game places you in the shoes of special agent, Dale Cooper. The story line picks up close to the final season tv show arc where Cooper has found himself trapped inside the Black Lodge; a mystical realm where both Heaven and Hell meet. You’re currently stuck and need to find an exit by exploring one room after another. To make it more interesting, you have your doppelganger hounding you as you try to find your way out.
Along with the crazy storyline, the gameplay is quite difficult to finish. However, the developer promises some exciting Easter egg once you do reach 5000 points. Of course, even solving the actual puzzle by then will still make you want to pull your hair.
If you’re looking for a chance to satisfy your love for Twin Peaks apart from watching reruns off the net, then this is a great game to check out.
