In NORTH you play a man who applies for asylum in a city filled with strange creatures and strange customs.
Dealing with the issue of the contemporary refugee crisis while at the same time being deeply rooted in a classical cyberpunk atmosphere à la Blade Runner, NORTH features a dark synthpop soundtrack, a sprawling mega-city and weird monster-like inhabitants.
The gameplay is very straightforward and mostly consists of exploration and simple puzzles. The main difficulty is to understand what you have to do in order to get asylum. You've come from an foreign land in the south and find yourself lost and confused - a confusion you convey through letters to your sister back home. An important part of the gameplay, these letters help you understand your tasks while at the same time moving the narrative of the game forward.
NORTH is short (20-40 min) and comes with a full soundtrack (8 songs).
North is a relatively short, 20 to 80-minute adventure with quite easy puzzles. The story is very interesting. A refugee arrives in an alternative world of the future in the vaunted city and has to find himself. The graphics are rather simple but appropriate, the music background is excellent. Unfortunately, the game is rather badly programmed, I often had only 10 FPS times and that on low settings (my PC can usually handle any game of the Unity engine without problems). The whole is nevertheless playable, because there are no hectic moments. Bugs did not occur in my playthrough. Many criticize the fact that they do not know what to do in the game. It is not possible to save your progress, you have to do it in one go. I liked the game despite all the deficiencies very well and I recommend it. Pros: - Story - Atmosphere - Music - Price Cons: - Bad performance - No menus - No save system
