User Reviews

A futurist and most realist version of life
19 March 2021 | by DIGITALEANIMESee all my reviews

It's a kind of niche that needs new revisions and new pioneers so that it can continue to evolve as we get closer to seeing its fictitious warnings unfold in real life, and Observer adds to familiar parables in fascinating ways. and unexpected. In this regard, and on many other levels, Observer is a haunting and remarkable achievement.
