The game has a very dark atmosphere and storyline. The puzzles require some thinking to do and there are lots of choices to do to determine how your game will turn out. The story has lots development that makes it engaging at times. There are some flaws like repetitive puzzles and boring conversations. It's not my type of game but I recommend you try it.

In this game you can find a dark storyline, which is not observable in many other games. Also this game presents us with strange and difficult conversations that we need to realize in order to reach the various puzzles and the development of the story.
This game is addictive and fun, worth a try.
