Description of Sanitarium

Doubtless one of the very best "serious" adventure games ever made.

In this psychological rollercoaster ride, you find yourself a patient in a strange sanitarium, with no memory of who you are. Slowly but surely, as the game progresses, you gather clues and insights into the past that give you the whole picture. I don't want to ruin your enjoyment of the game, but in general, each new chapter represents another step in Max's search for his sanity.

A true classic, and must-have for every adventure gamer, especially fans of psychological thrillers.

One of the best games ever made. It can get clunky but the story and atmosphere is great.
