    Make the Codex Great Again!
    big red flag right here, laddies... Makes me feel like there are no negative choices for your actions and completely botching shit is just fine. I already thought the demo was rather boring, will probably pass on this unless codex reviews are super positive where I'll wait for the game to go on a deep discount.

    Long story short, this is a game without combat that was apparently written by an established novelist.

    Text is not very evocative, most of it just tells you what is what, without much personality behind it. But on the plus side It doesn't make a rookie mistake of overdescribing every little thing.

    The dialogue window is a huge miss: semitransparent dark blue text window, with a light blue-ish font color is a really weird design decision. Just make the text fucking white with black shadow around.
    Another weird thing- one window only employs like 2 sentences to, you have to constantly click 'continue'. Maybe put that giant-ass text window to use and write out more shit?

    Another issue is the 'continue' text button, it's too small and forces you to constantly reach to keyboard, cause clicking it with a mouse is a drag.

    Portraits should have been cut off or scaled down so they don't go below text field, but they decided to make them take over 4th of the screen. It's a nitpick, but I find it very distracting.

    Not a lot of mechanical depth- you pick options and get points, that let you open a perk, that lets you pick more options.

    It looks great though, one of the rare 3d isometric games that doesn't look like shit. Respect to their art team.

    Can't rate the story yet, will update once I beat it.

    P.S: go into settings and instantly scale text to 130%<

    Text sucks, because this was written in Polish and translated to English down the line. Translator is not a good wordsmith to say the least.

    Remember when people said that them based Slavs are going to save gaming from wokeness.

    I am well aware of us Slavs often bragging how we are all so based while in reality the corruption has started to rot away our societies too.

    It was a nice dream of East Europeans devs holding the line against wokeness only to that dream to turn into nightmare with Cyberpunk, Pathfinder and other games.

    Character pronoun thing is limited only to male and female. Looks like they want to alienate both normal people and SJWs.

    In games with portrait selection like BG2 you could've assigned a mismatched portrait and character's sex. They could've just went with "sex: male/female" and not "pronouns: he/him / she/her".

    "Selecting pronouns" affects how the game addresses you in dialogues. It makes sense within the context of the game world, where people can buy character skins and appear in-game as whatever they want, be it man or woman or robot or horse.

    If only there was a way to determine which pronouns to use based on physical characteristics. Damn.

    It is dystopian cyberpunk, so I guess it would be part of the future.
