I found this to be an emotionally-engaging and thought-provoking interactive story. The execution is subtle and smart. If you enjoyed Hack RUN, you might want to give this a try. Both games weave together narrative and gameplay in a seamless and intuitive manner.
I found it refreshing that the game casts you as a woman trying to help her female friend. Games that centre on female protagonists are the exception, and games that explore womens relationships with each other, rather than with male characters, even more so.
But, at its core, this is a very human story that explores timeless and universal themes. Kenty is a well-drawn character, and the epistolary format allowed me to connect with her struggles on a visceral, immediate level. The dystopian setting is deftly crafted and adds a genuine tension to the narrative.
The game struck me as being on the short side. I finished it in a little over an hour.
There were also a few puzzles for which I had to look up the solutions online. I admit this is largely not an issue of design, but my own eagerness to see where the story was going. But there is one puzzle (the "like a big city" one) no one could reasonably be expected to get. The answer is too esoteric. Dont be afraid to look up the solution when you reach that point.
