Five Word Review: Neat adventure with interesting cast. Favorite Thing: The characters are great, especially Mae and Gregg. Least Favorite Thing: It take a little too long before the story gets going. Date Completed: 2018-03-11 Playtime: 8h Enjoyment: 7/10 Recommendation: Yes, it's a solid adventure game - weird story, cool art, great music.
A very story-focused game revolving around a college drop-out. You return to your suburban home, parents and a few friends, then a mystery happens. (Btw, I think this game has some best creepy moments for a not-so-scary game.) It conveys the feeling of hanging out with friends perfectly, so you might well recognize your real friends or even yourself in all these pauses, jokes, smirks. The story is actually pretty linear, but still it alters a bit based on your choices, so you feel really as a part of the game. If that all sounds interesting to you, check it out.
It's a playable story, not just a game, so if you don't like lots of text in playing, skip it. If you are okay with that, than listen closesly – this is one of the best indies out there. It can compare with the likes of Life is Strange, etc. The characters are fresh and have interesting personalities. The gameplay itself is just talking, hanging out with people and investigating a weird mystery along the way. The fact that you can do only a few things each day and the story changes with it gives the game a solid replayability rate. If you like the good art and writing, you'll like this.

It's an extremely fresh story and a lot of fun, a strange mix of this and that which is very hard to put in a single category. Absolutely not demanding on a PC and has a great visual style and music. This is exactly why indie games should get more attention.
The game is a talking and listening simulator because all characters talk for paragraphs on and on and can't stop. However, the writing is great, so you don't really get bored, but if you are a fan of run and gun and for some reason you are reading this review, consider it a warning. The meat of the game is talking to characters and decide who to spend your time with. There;s also a bit of platforming, but that's not the point of the game. The music and design are awesome as you might expect, so if you like a good story, I absolutely recommend this game.
Интересный представитель жанра walking talking simulator, вроде бы ничего особенного в игре нет, но я за 2 дня наиграл в неё 14 часов, такого очень давно со мной не бывало. В целом опыт больше похож на чтение большого романа с какими-то выборами, мини-играми и музыкой, чем на игру. Простая, но очень затягивающая и притягательная история!
