  • This really feels like one of those games where people will walk away with wildly different opinions depending on their tastes. If you happen to appreciate games used as a medium for people to compose visually-distinctive experiences to tell stories I would imagine you’ll end up pretty pleased with it, but if you’re looking more from the angle of expecting well-composed gameplay beats that are satisfying to complete you’ll likely be far less enthusiastic. Starting out your main character seems to simply be a working drone who has completed his work for the day and is all set to journey home. After encountering a few oddities, however, you’ll get the idea the world isn’t necessarily a normal one and then that there’s something much more unusual going on. The story and visual style are absolutely interesting, the problem is that the point-and-click style adventure beats that help you progress are hit and miss at best and can sometimes be frustratingly obtuse in the progression of things you’ll need to do in order to advance that same story. It’s absolutely an interesting journey, I just wish more care had been put into making it as engaging to play as to watch unfold.
