In a game like this, the strength of the writing is the ultimate criteria by which to judge. And it delivers with stunning success.
Everything about how this game is written is fantastic. There is rapier wit to spare in the clever dialogue, narrative and general premise, the characters are written exceptionally well, and the descriptive writing makes the absense of visuals a moot point; your imagination, from the visual cues indicated, is the most effective tool.
The story is quickly paced and never stagnates. Exposition is kept to a minimum and you make decisions frequently and often. Speaking of decisions, the choices you make in this game DO influence so much about the story and the characters and how everything ends. It feels like this could be your story, though the protagonist is probably a good deal more clever than you.
It's just an absolute riot, a delight to read, and you're guaranteed at minimum 2 hours on a single playthrough, and if you see those achievements you can tell there are MANY directions you can take the game. I'm gonna go for a replay soon enough!
For this pricepoint? It's an absolute steal. Highest recommendations.
