This was a game I’d been wanting to play ever since release, and was just waiting for the right time to get around to it — it also had to be something I play on my work PC, because I don’t have a PC at home, or an Xbox One. I finally grabbed it at the start of the year, and if I had played it last year, it definitely would have made my year-end favorites list. I quite liked Gone Home too, but this is definitely a better, and more interesting follow-up. The sci-fi setting is already a plus for me, and I really enjoyed how you go about taking in conversations, by moving around in recorded time and space. Can’t wait to see what they produce next.
