    Judging by the screenshots, it's going to have some interesting mechanics.

    So it seems my hunch was right and it's going to be a sorta-QfG-like. Cautiously excited!

    A bit disappointed they didn't stay in a "real world" setting. We don't have enough of games like that.

    Infinitron - no offense, but I cannot see any of the pictures in your post, and I normally do not have this issue. I, respectfully, ask that you fix this.

    If this problem is on my end, and I'm the only one suffering of this, please disregard the preceding.

    I can't, it's a copy-paste from their old website that got taken down.

    Been playing it for 2 hours or so and got through the first day (or what I am assuming is basically an extended tutorial) and so far I like it. It has some light roleplaying elements which the game promises should have an effect on solutions available to you. We'll see.

    The couple of player reviews up are very positive, too.

    Steamcharts says it hit 90 players today. That is a really strong launch, as I assume the numbers will peak on the weekend. Shardlight peaked at 95, Technobabylon at 83, Lamplight City at 82, Kathy Rain at 59, though all of these (I think?) ultimately had higher numbers when they were put on sale or in bundles.

    I am enjoying this game. Unlike Unavowed or Lamplight City, it feels and plays like a proper graphic adventure, even if a bit on the easy side.

    Yes, that's the feeling I've been getting too - it's not terribly hard, but it doesn't feel like the game is spoon-feeding solutions to you.

    Yes, it really feels like a classic Point and Click with real riddles.
    -The dark sci-fi setting is really interesting
    -there are nudity and gore
    -voice acting is good
    -characters have a lot of dialogue option that is not vital for progression
    -pretty style

    Really been enjoying the first two hours. If you like PNCs then don't miss out on this game. It really feels like the devs learned from the already good Kathie Rain.

    Finished the game.
    According to Steam it took me a bit over 4 hours,but I feel like I might have missed some stuff - not that the ending did not make sense, just the game hints at some backstory that never got properly resolved (but maybe that's just intentionally vague).

    Anyway: what I gathered from skimming the Steam forums, you get different power upgrades depending on your dialog choices. That plus different endings give the game replayability, even though it's quite short otherwise.
