So anyone who enjoys telltale's stuff should check this out. It's really solid. This game has a really good branching dialogue system that's leagues better than what anything else with that kind of system can do and while that dialogue system is most of what this game has to offer it's still well worth checking out.
There is a new game + apparently that I'm interested in. I'm guessing that going through NG+ is required to get Alex out of that groundhog day situation but in the meantime I did apparently manage to save Michael so that's a nice thing.
Got it a couple of days ago, and played it through in one sitting tonight. It had its moments, but ultimately it didn't really click with me like say, Night in the Woods did. I liked when the spooky stuff started to happen, and the cryptic quotes and such were right up my alley, but there was something missing (or maybe not enough pieces missing?) that made me less intrigued by the lore or most of the characters. Alex was a good protagonist though, I thought. Had enough personality of her own, but gave you plenty of influence over it through all the dialogue options.
I certainly don't regret playing it, but I don't think I'll be coming back to it either. Did you guys go around hunting all the extra stuff or what?
@ploot Yeah, but I don't feel that I care enough about any of it to go through the game again. I don't really care about any of the characters (Alex was alright, but I found pretty much everyone else to obnoxious and unlikeable in one way or another), and I don't care about the island and its lore either. Playing through hours of sluggish walking while listening to those characters yapping at me just so I can see a new side to the story doesn't feel very tempting.
@r_hjort Without giving too much away, the events are the same, but the characters begin to notice that they’re repeating the same stuff. I’m hitting spoiler territory, but I found it to be quite nifty.
I bought this a few months ago. Got to the part where you tune the radio in the cave, and then I couldn't figure out the next step. I should pick it back up one of these days, I enjoyed the short time I spent with it.
