One-Eyed Lee and the Dinner Party from Ratalaika Games and DarkChibiShadow is a point and click adventure game on PlayStation. It’s a cross-buy title, so buying it will grant you access to the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the games. You’ll play as Beracus and Lee, who are searching for a cure for Beracus’ village. They find the entrance to an abandoned bunker, but they end up trapped inside with no way of getting out. It is then that they realize that the bunker is actually inhabited.
The twist? The bunker is the home for a family of skeletons! They’re members of a cult, but other than that, they’re very hospitable and polite. They believe that Beracus and Lee are also members of the cult since they found their way into the bunker and invite them to stay for the party so that they can join them in waiting for the New World. But if Beracus and Lee don’t hurry up and find a way to exit the bunker, they’ll find their end… in more than one way! Can you help them find the clues needed for escaping?
For this point and click adventure game, you’ll move a cursor around the screen with the left analog stick, highlighting the objects and characters you can interact with by pressing the X button. You’re going to read a lot of dialogue and can roll back by pressing the L1 button in case you missed something. The Triangle button will open up the menu, from which you can save your progress and load your save files, change the settings, check out the dialogue history, review what’s in your inventory, and check the entries in your journal. The Square button can be pressed to open up a map so that you can know what room leads to where. The map can also be used to fast-travel between the different rooms.
As you interact with the objects you’ll find during your adventure and add them to your inventory, you’ll have a chance to interact with them so that you can take a closer look and learn more about them. For example, if you click on the map, you’ll learn it’s a hand-drawn map made by and as received from Priscilla. Click on the sword handle you’ll collect early in the game, and you’ll see that it’s made of ceramic and is howl, which is why it probably broke off in the first place. These items will be used to solve puzzles in order to move the story forward.
As mentioned before, this is a cross-buy game, and that means you’ll get both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game. This is important because each version features its own separate trophy list, which is certainly good news for trophy hunters! The list is a short one, with nothing but Gold trophies for you to add to your collection. For these to pop, you’ll have to reach the game’s normal ending, the true ending, and play the prologue. On top of this, there are two specific objectives to complete by interacting with an item in particular and by doing something during the final part of the game. The rest will unlock by having Lee and Beracus reach an untimely death by making the wrong choice at the wrong time.
If you’re a fan of point and click adventures, then you’ll enjoy One-Eyed Lee and the Dinner Party. It’s a game you can complete in a couple of hours or so depending on your experience with adventure games, and you get both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game for a low price of only $4.99, which means you can get two Platinum trophies for your efforts!
