    I would be more butthurt if as female you dont go for the guy. So much for "muh sjw shit" So since I play something else right now but was curious I watched the other endings on youtube
    Show Spoiler
    From what I saw it doesnt really mater who you save you can get the best ending even if all the guys you may kill die? I expected to need the whole team for the best ending which would mean using summons to get to evilyou but it seems it doesnt matter (except for the ending slides?


    I liked the ending here more than in blackwell

    aside from the the jesus thing I thought it was very cruel to ressurrect joy because now he is alive again but everyone he ever knew is dead and he himself is pretty much non existant in any system which relegates him to a life on the streets as begger or something. Also kaykay not only died being killed by her mother, only ten years old, now she may spend the rest of eternity as a fucking ghost, poor child.

    Yeah I noticed that inconsistency too, some of the characters sounded like they delivered their lines via Discord VC or something. Not sure what happened there.

    I second that, it's obvious that Dave really enjoyed creating this world and since the Unavowed exist all over the world it's easy to make a sequel that has no connection with the first game's plot. Let's hope it becomes a success for Wadjet eye

    Looks like I missed the Joey cameo, wasn't even aware of it until now. I do love how detective Sam Durkin just keeps running into, as far as he's concerned, weird-ass people. By the time of Unavowed he just doesn't give a shit.

    Now that this is the most profitable game ever, the sequel could add some difficulty, maybe.

    I gotta say I loved the
    Show Spoiler
    twist in the final act. I genuinely didnt see it coming. I assumed that I was still possessed, but that the rest of the Unavowed knew it and were using my lapse in memory to tease the truth out of me - or that I was currently INSIDE the pocket universe already, created as a way to force me to reveal what I had done...or something like that.

    I definitely want to go back and play as another character and make some different choices to see what happens. The return of the flaming guy and the demon who you let feed on the corpses was a nice callback to earlier choices in a way that felt very natural.

    Started playan, just finished the Mystery of the Fire Elemental (tm)

    Game looks fun so far even though I find it hard to treat the rather generic urban fantasy shtick seriously. I'm not that much a fan of urban fantasy in general because it seems all the damn things always follow the exact same formula, i.e. "regular guy in Big_City suddenly finds that Big_City has a supernatural underground and he suddenly has to leave his loife behind!!!", and for now Unavowed is no exception.

    Also, I'm a bit puzzled by the amount of locations, which all seem to have only like 1 hotspot to interact with and nothing else. Feels like... wasted resources? Sorta?

    You need to wait for the twist.

    Yes, it's basically KOTOR, but at least it makes your avatar actually somewhat interesting

    Cool twists in a story based game are important. The Others is an awesome ghost movie because of the twist. The Sixth Sense is a pretty bland movie until the final act.

    And I didnt see anyone claiming that its good because of one twist, rather that the story itself is enjoyable because of the twist(s) it takes.

    I kinda like Unavowed, but... the story is too similar to the Blackwell series. It's "The Paranormal Streets of San Francisco New York". Again.

    Hah, the mouse-over descriptions over props and such differ depending on whether you're man or womyns. That's a pretty cool detail.

    Speaking of details: "We must gather more information before venturing forth". Got a chuckle out of me.

    Started it yesterday. It's ok, at best. A lot of it is simply walking and talking, the puzzles are very easy. Some of them are so straightforward that they become hard as your mind searches for a more elaborate solution. The characters are so-so: some are okay, but occasional dialogue remarks like 'you're gaslighting', or whatever it was, are pretty jarring. Voice acting is pretty good. I won't judge the story yet because I've only just finished the Staten Island part - I guess that it's the sole facet of the experience that will either make or break the whole game. It's a 'story' game at it's heart. The puzzles and 'rpg' elements are just minor embellishments.

    Nope, you "choose" your ending in the last sequence, regardless of your choices during the game.

    Nice. My manual saves' placing is not too convenient for a replay.

    it still affects the ending slides, only the 'main' ending gets unaffected


    More spoilerish (open)
    Also changes some of the puzzles around the ending

    As always, I'm paralyzed with indecision whenever I'm presented with a choice in a game. If I choose bartender background, will I be stuck with logan as an optional teammate or will I have access to NPCs from other origins?

    Origins don't lock you out of a party member, don't worry about that.
