A CRPG in which, waking up in a hotel room a total amnesiac with highly opinionated voices in his head, a middle-aged detective on a murder case inadvertently ends up playing a part in the political dispute between a local labour union and a larger international body, all while struggling to piece together his past, diagnose the nature of the reality around him and come to terms with said reality.

A brilliantly told narrative that will have a profound effect on the people that love it for the rest of their lives. My experience overall had a few minor pains that pale in comparison to its masterful writing and presentation. My appreciation for this game will grow overtime, I am sure.

Одна из лучших игр вообще. Абсолютно уникальна, выдающийся нарратив, я очень рад жить в мире где вышла эта игра

Absolutely phenomenal, point and click adventure. Torment: Tides of Numenera / Planescape style gameplay in a neo-dystopic post-revoltionary inspired pseudo-France.

Very attractive watercolor backgrounds give imagery both drab like the world the game inhabits but also interesting and engaging. Novel storytelling techniques in which parts of your amnesiac brain actually speak as individual characters themselves.

A very unique, text-heavy, mustplay

It's hard to talk about this game without spoiling it, so I won't try - all I can say is "if you look at this game and think you'll like it, try it - stop postponing it".
Beautiful game with well written characters, amazing worldbuilding and tons of lore. The only reason I'm deducting a point is because I personally found it hard to stay with the game in the first ~3 hours, almost giving up on it. Glad I didn't. After that it opened up a bit more and I started to enjoy it.
