|Review||This game is divided in two parts. |
The first one is when you are human, there i couldn't sympathise with the personality and the relationships from the protagonists so when his big sister Bridgitta died it wasn't very impactful on me, the romance with Polyanna also fell flat to me. Not much happen here and this part felt more of a world-building than anything.
The second part is where you get turned into a aberration and the game jumps to being bad to really good. Kaviani (the main character) starts to notice the grotesques things done to his body and a whole new place in the Undergrounds with new people and new rules. The second part gripped me in a good way the first never did.
The game doesn't offer too much explanation to connect the first part to the second. I ended with various questions like ''Why Quirin is acquainted with the leaders from the non-resistance?'' ''Why Polyanna is found on the Undergrounds unconscious and with her body containing no signals to have been mutated in any form?'', ''How is Bridgitta also there? I thought only people found to be ''defective'' would be moved to the Undergrounds by the Clankers and be transformed and put to work but she died'', ''In the Underground the workers have to use their pickaxe hand to destroy some yellow cyst, for what purpose it serves?'', ''Film an entity formed with thousands of people are inside Kaviani from the start, how and what is his origins?'', ''The game shows Kaviani being forced to go into a elevator to be transformed, but when he exit the Undergrounds (I supposed by the same elevator he first entered) everything is so diferent like it is completely in another place'', ''In this universe they already found the answer for immortality, what?'' and many more...
I finished this knowing the big-picture of what happens but not the ''How's'', ''What's'' and ''Why's''
