This game came up first on my personal shuffle, and I really fell in love with it.
I was intrigued by the first playthrough, then delighted to discover that the game keeps deepening on subsequent playthroughs. It opens up and gives you information about its characters and its setting only gradually.
The visuals and sounds are minimalist: subtle and effective.
There are nice little details that help with playability: a skip button, a visual indication of which railway station you’re in, a reminder of how many playthroughs you’ve been through.
The minimalist writing fits well with the minimalist graphics and sound, and it all produces a meaningful and atmospheric effect. If anything, I wished the game would give the player more: more prose, more setting, more character. The sci-fi setting is intriguing but not fully explored. The characters are fairly loosely drawn, and I wanted a stronger sense about who they are earlier in the game.
