    Nice, I want!

    :what:

    There is no god.
    In retrospect a game able to knock a fucking atheist way out of their comfort zone with this realization is pretty lovecraftian, alright.

    Not very appealing, honestly.

    I coincidentally decided to randomly play this two days ago. It's a fun little game, the theme is good and it's fairly easy - finished it on second try in 5 hours

    Yup, agreed. Dunno if I'd exactly call the theme GOOD when you've got devil penguins or whatever, but for a semi-sandbox semi-kinda-sorta-roguelike-like sneaker it's a neat enough thing. Wouldn't say it's nearly a $15 game but if it's in a bundle or in a sale you can have a few hours of tolerable fun.

    I thought sure I owned this game but I must own some other forgettable indie attempt at a Thief/Deus Ex clone. I remember that one being disappointing as well.

    Edit: Neon Struct!

    Exactly. It's a shield for criticism.

    It's one of those games that launch on steam to 0 players because nobody can tell the difference between it and the 100 other games released the same day that look just like it. They were lucky to get it out at a time when the store was far less competitive

    made by the same guys! i actually thought neon struct was pretty inoffensive and was fun enough in short bursts. i went ahead and scored a cheap key for this game. will check it out sometime in the next couple of years and report back

    It's a decent game, got it back in the day in a bundle with Neon Struct, which is also decent.

    Nothing groundbreaking there and the artstyle is eeeeeh but it brings some new stuff to a severely under-served genre, so.
