This mob show they can create an atmosphere but the game lacked substance. There was no reason why you were helping her. She could gave been an escaped drug courier yet you blindly find yourself helping a complete stranger you know nothing about. How often does that happen in the real world?
The lack of a real plot concentrates all one's attention on the game which is just hide and seek and a very boring rendition of it. Apart from pepper spray you have no real tactics. Why is pepper spray spread all over the place? And having escaped numerous times why do the guards just lock her up in the same cell she keeps escaping from?
To sell the rest of the chapters you need a good first impression which I didn't have and I feel many others didn't when reading about them wanting to know if they get their purchase back if they delete the app showing they didn't find it very impressive but bought it because of the sale.
Going on this kind of reception I don't think the game will be a success but the devs have shown they can create so maybe they will next time create a good plot and better gameplay.
Yes,you're right,there Are to many ???? But i hope can be The answers in Next episodes..but if The others episodes Are only run/hide/avoid guards,in The same enviroments,can be too many repetitive,no tactics,only use a pepper spray,and later you know(spoiler avoided)HOPE it's a prisoner,but a woman can't perform non lethal takedown?and in The enviroments as she find pepper,why don't let her find also knife..i don't want weapons,or at last a stun gun can be good,i hope added this think in NeXT episodes,so everyone can use it's strategy,otherwise if all other episodes Are like The first,it's too repetitive,boring,i'm enjoy The first,a lot,but i feel need some new stuff.. i fear that it's difficult that others episodes came out,on Kickstarter i see backers angry,then they had to' do The Mac version,and do it merchandising for special/limited EDITION of REPUBLIQUE,soundtrack,covers,books,a lot of thinks,a lot of work..
