no, this is me

anyway reviews of this seem to be that it's more texturally focused and NOT on combat which is kinda like the opposite of my shit but i'll give it a go cause everyone's raving about it

i love the idea because i like the idea of IMMERSIVE WORLDS and TIMESUCKS but i'm not a fan of shit like min maxing and tend to peter out when i hit a wall. guess i'm a casual.

it's not a mechanics game. at all. the mechanics that are there are entirely in service of player choice and they're largely frictionless.

the most interesting mechanical decision is actually how you spend time (each line of dialogue "spends" 23 seconds)

which is kind of the most interesting thing about life too huh

pretty sure you can. there are also way, way too many tasks for you to possibly complete in the available time, and the cluttered list kinda feels like a dig at other crpgs; it makes no effort to distinguish between major investigation leads and the wackiest petty bullshit, and it's up to the player to prioritize.

for the most part, the game just adapts and keeps on trucking if you fail something, so I'm curious how being a complete disaster constantly would bear on the long-term success of the investigation (i.e., are there "good"/"bad" endings?). wasting your time on long, irrelevant conversations starts to feel like a bad choice, though, and I have this real sense of urgency and the day wasting, whether that's fake or not. it kind of stresses me out as as completionist, but I'm also just leaning into it hard and leaving a lot of stuff for an inevitable second/third/?? playthrough.

under the hood, it kinda seems like it's an especially complex choose-your-own-adventure book. you choose which pages to read, and you also choose what inflection--what attitudinal smell and feel--the pages have. also the pages are disintegrating in your hands as you read.

my guy is a very Communistic Dale Cooper/Doc Sportello type, so I can't wait to try a Fascist Mike Hammer who just physically assaults every problem. on that note, very glad that the game doesn't just adopt a South Park-like "everything is fodder for my aloof comedy" pose, but has an implied stance on things. there are still some extremely White Leftist Twitter moments (Revachol is also decidedly European, with all that entails in elisions re: race), but the game has this hurt, vulnerable, humanistic streak if you let it come out.
