Freebase

  1. Fade

    FADE is a point-and-click adventure game developed by the Fade Team and released for the Windows Mobile Professional platform in 2001. The game was critically acclaimed as the first large-scale adventure game for the platform. It is most often compared to Myst, the first immersive graphic adventure games for the PC, and the games in the Zork series. The game was originally created in French, and was translated into English. This has resulted in some lines sounding rather awkward, and French remains in some parts of the game's dialogue. However, this has not posed a problem for many players. The game's story is actually very complex. It has been compared to a similarly themed film, the critically acclaimed Memento. FADE was broken up into chapters and re-released for the iPhone OS under a different name, 1112, on November 24, 2008.
