Who’s That Game? Watergate

Platform: Windows PC
Developer: Samuel Kim
Publisher: Samuel Kim
Release Date: 5/6/2013



Who’s That Game stars our very own Aaron Randolph as he plays weird and unique indie games blind so you don’t have to.

I got a tip from a friend (who shall remain unnamed until I reveal that his name is Dave) that I needed to play Watergate. Being only vaguely familiar with the scandal or the game, I declined until he informed me that the game is something of an absurdist 8-bit adventure in the vein of Shadowgate and now my interest was peaked. What followed was a descent into madness the likes of which I’ve never seen before – and I’ve been surfing the web since 1994 and have seen some freaky shit.

I really, really, REALLY don’t want to ruin this for you, and you don’t want me to ruin it for you, either. Trust me on this – just watch the video, completely uninformed of the ridiculous acid trip that is sure to follow. You will thank me later.

If you want to test your own journalism chops, the game is completely free, and playable in your browser over at Watergategame.com – I highly recommend it.
