This...this... was really great! Really liked the characters, specially the conflicts they have with you! Memory maybe failing on me ( probably is) but one the thing that always spoils my experience in a game is when a character who disagrees with you drops the act after you confront them, whether the plot demands it or it is simply forgotten or doesn't develop well through the rest of the game but your game my friend, goes into the excepetion list.
I, though all the demo, got into arguments with Ava and Morgan. Whether it was Morgan's smoking issue or Ava constantly questiong my authority, they never dropped their act, instead it developed realistic to the setting and their personas and even changed my behavior around them! I went from trying to assure my dominance over Ava to trying to know her better and now I decided to do her route.
(No love for Morgan through, because fuck her, there is a sign telling that it is smoking is prohbited in this area and fuck her because I don't want my office smelling cigarettes...at least smoke by the window...with it open preferably...mean glares to me only make you look that you are hungry, not pissed or challenging me.)
All characters felt that they belonged to the setting (although, I expected that the unit would have some male members instead of going full amazon brigade or vice versa if you pick a girl for a main character. When your police officer friend lampshades it, it only made it worse...but they were so interesting that the balance weigthed in their favor).
Aaand the perspective changes - with choices!- was a surprise delight! Althought it kind rubbed me off at first ( more on that later) when they came thought the plot and organic exposed information to me, I loved it! It reminded of D&D sessions, where I, the player, knows a lot about the plot and the world and mechanics but my character don't and "feinting" my ignorance only made me immerse and invest more in the plot and in the characters! It really felt that I was roleplaying!
Now the only thing that I can say that it feels wrong for me, is the beginning - Mind you that this maybe only affects me and may have different results with another users.- I don't know, it feels like something is missing, somehow I can't immerse myself in it. I can't quite make the scenes in my head, I can't decide if it is raining or not, can't imagine the characters and the first perspective change only made me remember that I am sitting in front of a computer reading and clicking buttons. The game, for me, only did start in the wharehouse and went full imersion after the first perspective change with the unit.
( Fun fact: I actually played this game a long time ago but I could not go past the first pages because of this. Only today I found this again and what a delightful experience this has been!)
My two cents and I repeat, I'm really looking forward to it! Bookmarked and I will be on the lookout for new content.
