Reisende im Wind (1988)

French comic book series Passengers on the Wind claims to have sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. Sufficiently high profile to warrant a computer conversion for sure. Though of course, the usual question comes up: how to turn a static narrative into an interactive one? Can it even be successful giving the player sufficient agency while retaining a strong dramaturgy? The game Passengers on the Wind could serve as textbook illustration how not to attempt such a thing. Or as cautionary example why not to even try.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!
