I heard a lot of good things about this game before I played it and went ahead not knowing what to expect – It’s funnier this way. It was an afternoon well spent playing this game.

Story

It’s a pretty story told in a very distinct way that I really enjoyed. It’s a story a about a subject that in our society shouldn’t be a tabu and it should be accepted by everyone… If you didn’t play it yet, I hope it motivates you to.

 

Graphics and Sound

In the start I thought that this was a horror game, the atmosphere it’s very well built and the constant storm outside makes the mood perfect. Overall it has good visual and the construction of the house was very good.

Like I said before, the game has an awesome atmosphere that puts you in the game and the sound is key to the experience. That constant rain and the sound in the house makes this game very unique.

Mechanics

It’s a walking simulator, so there isn’t a distinctive mechanic. You walk, open stuff, read papers, read journals, pick cassettes, listen to the cassettes, listen to stuff, and that’s it. This game was a constant reminder of Shenmue regarding the interaction that the game has. I can’t to wait to play the unconfirmed Shenmue 1 & 2 remaster and the Shenmue 3.

Repetitiveness

It is what it is, a walking simulator. I doesn’t turn out to be a repetitive game because of the length of the it. It’s a small game that you can complete in 3 to 4 hours. It has the correct size to be enjoyable and not repetitive.

Overall

It’s a good game, with a charming story, good mood that you can enjoy in an afternoon. It’s another one of those Indie games that you should play.
