Amazing Dialogue.
7 October 2019 | by colorthekidSee all my reviews

The voice acting carries the entire thing.

It's not often that you see such a mature approach to storytelling in video games. This game does a great job at diving into some "adult" issues while keeping it lively and bright, and I love that aspect of it.

That said, the gameplay is by far its weakest point. The amount of things you can do is very bare, and I would even go so far as to say that it's barely a game. A very compelling experience nonetheless.
