It's considered one of the best old school point 'n' click adventures games there is. I believe it was even pitted against Grim Fandango (my personal favorite game of all time) back in 1998. As always, with DotEmu's magic, this has the potential to be the definitive version of Sanitarium.

Back in the day it was a must... It is from DotEmu though, so we know the port will be almost perfect.

I remember this was also considered one of the most disturbing during its time.

I've just given in and bought Grim Fandango. I've never heard of it before the iOS version and couldn't decide if people were just viewing it through rose tinted glasses, or if it stands up as a good game today. Now this one comes out, it sounds like it might have a really deep and interesting story even if the graphics are a bit iffy, anyone know how well it works on ipad?

Wow, one of my favourite PC games, which I played so long ago, and I am delighted to see it is being released on the iPad.

I will be hitting that buy button first thing tomorrow morning when it is released in NA. Yes, it IS a must buy to those who love old style point and click adventures.
