Ananke is an impressive adventure game, with a visual style reminiscent of early Lucasarts point and click adventures (but in first person), in which you play a cleaning lady in a very mysterious consulting business.
You work for Exafan, a seemingly normal business with a selection normal employees – from a shy young analyst to a sleazy misogynist. Every day you must enter the office, grab your cleaning products and clean a set list of items, from toilets to waste baskets.
While doing these tasks you can look around a little, searching waste baskets, snooping on computers and talking to employees. It soon becomes apparent that shady deals are going on at Exafan, none of the employees actually have any idea what the company does, and your boss is clearly someone not to be messed with…
With it’s great blend of retro visuals, intriguing story, interesting characters and novel first person point & click-esque adventuring, Ananke really impresses. Be careful – delve too deep into what’s happening at Exafan and you may end up becoming an ex-cleaner!
