This game is excellent. While the graphics are not state of the art, for adventure game they get the job done. Music and sound and pretty good, but what stands out is the writing. It's stellar and really interesting. You play as a psychiatrist that explores troubled minds of mentally deranged people. It's something different and the execution of it is great and makes for some nice atmosphere. The only thing that is bad about this game is voice-acting, but in adventure games realm it's nothing new. Overall, it's a great, classic point and click game. Strongly recommended.
A classic style adventure game with a couple of interesting puzzles but you're really here for the story. A psychiatrist whose marriage is on the rocks, a detective with a chip on his shoulder, a gruff bartender and a snooty hotel clerk. The cast of characters make this a fun psychological drama dealing with tragedy both personal and global in scale. 10 hours to complete, has some classic game jankiness such as weird camera angles and hilariously bad line readings but overall a fun adventure game that covers some interesting topics and was very enjoyable to play through
