First off, please note that I had accidentally left the game running when I went out - it actually takes less than an hour to beat this game, proceeding at a leisurely pace. At the time of writing this review, there have been two extra vignettes released, both of which are meant to be extremely quick, supplemental material. They each take around five minutes to complete. Be advised, the game is a three-part series, and I assume that owners of the game will receive the other 2 segments when they are released.
If you like graphic novels, sci-fi dystopian themes, and super casual gameplay, then you will enjoy this game.
The aesthetics are very good - the detail in the environment and art style are both well-done. The music is also good, and adds to the atmosphere of the game. The story is pretty interesting, although it is nothing elaborate or intricate (granted, I have read A LOT of fantasy and sci-fi). I look forward to trying out the next instalments.
As a point-and-clicker, the game runs mostly like a graphic novel, with some dialogue options and very simple puzzles. That being said, the controls are super easy to understand. The learning curve is minimal, however, there is one "main" puzzle that took me a few minutes to figure out. I had thought that the keypad grid required you to connect EVERY letter to its corresponding number (ex: A -> 1, B -> 2, etc), which is absolutely impossible.
During gameplay, most of the "puzzles" can be solved intuitively, and the game provides a fair amount of hand-holding to ensure you progress through the story. My favorite puzzle would have to be the part where you record a guard's responses and have to splice/edit a 3-part dialogue in order to get another guard to leave his post.
Overall, the game is a nice, quick experience that will be enjoyed by sci-fi lovers. A good time filler.
