Less of a game and more of a mildly-interactive history lesson, it has some appeal, but likely a very narrow one
Things that aren’t really intended to be games are a bit of a challenge to review on a site dedicated to games. A Matter of Principle, even moreso than a host of visual novels out there in the eShop, isn’t really meant to be entertainment as far as I can tell, and instead is trying to put you in a pre-World War I Sarajevo, in an attempt to help you understand the social and political climate that lead to the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Whether this would be of great interest to you as an experience, accompanied by some great comic-like illustrations would be a matter of taste and preference. It’s absolutely quite unique in its topic and approach, but it’s also unavoidably niche so tricky to recommend broadly.
