Solid adventure game. Telltale and Deponia - like. Nice story.

Cute and unique artstyle with a very solid story. Good sci-fi angles and voice work make it a game many people will enjoy. It's a good value even at full price, so sale price will push it to insta-buy category for any point-and-click adventure game lovers.

Point and Click

First of all...the art style in this game is astounding. Imagine if you will Tim Burton (Nightmare Before Christmas) meets the Deponia video game series. Topped off with amazing voice work especially from the main character Ana Eberling. Now although this is an amazing game, be warned that it is a point and click adventure. That might turn some people away because it is VERY STORY DRIVEN which is to be expected from any point and click adventure game, but for those of you who are still here, there is an amazing story to be told. The gameplay is very similar to past point and click titles before it. It has everything you would expect; a tight locked in camera, a crafting system to solve puzzles, interactable objects in every environment, and some nice mini games to break the point and click mechanic. So if you are looking for a "unique" point and click adventure game, it is not to be found here. It plays like the rest of them, but if you are interested in an in depth story about science, mystery, and dare I say time travel, then this is indeed your kind of game.
