I think this is quite s good game from my first impressions. Yeah there are some typos but I can relate to the character and I am quite hooked by the story so far. Already died once very early, started over and took another turn, got completely different choices so as far as I can see there is quite some replayability. I would recommend to check it out. It is my first entry into these kind of games and I have already Martian running too

Fair warning you need a social media account most likely (either Facebook or Twitter). Because if you die you need to start over from the beginning OR share your death over one of those social media channels and start from last checkpoint. For me it is not an issue as I will just delete it right after it gets posted but for some it might be.

I have played more and I am torn apart on this one:

On the one hand I really like that it goes on for a while, even if you picked a "wrong" choice. But this means, that the checkpoints are bit farther back and even though I also like the aspect, that you die a lot (!) which keeps things super tense, it means, that you have to replay for a longer time than I start to like. I am at a point now where I am starting at the same checkpoint for 5 times in a row and died every single time, even though I made slightly different decisions. It is not apperent for me how to best play this situation out and it is getting frustrating to play the same situation over and over. It would be nice, if you could skip certain dialog-waiting times if you have already been through them. This would make the gameplay much more fluent, without taking away the tension of dying even after the choice that caused you to die was 2-3 choices before your most recent one.

I still have to give it to them. I got suprised so very often! Even if you die, you sometimes get AMAZING ways those deaths play out and stuff that you totally do not expect to happen. At 99 cents I absolutely recommend this game even with it flaws.

2 more things:

The share to start from checkpoint is one time thing. I shared (only visible for me) once and since then I can restart from the checkpoint without the need to share it again so it is totally fine, even though a bit unnecessary in a PAID game.

Lastly the writting has some issues in spelling but the story itself is still very good! I really, really enjoy the atmossphere of this one and it still has me hooked, there are quite some choices that I did not think would play out the way they did and I really enjoy the whole story - which means that those writting errors are totally not subtracting anything from the story or the experience themselves, which certainly speaks for the story.

Overall this would be a 3.5/5 but as I can only rate it 3/5 or 4/5 here I will give it the 4/5 because I got suprised by the story and found it to be extremely good! cheers!

Final update! After I made it out of my misery and found a way after retrying about 5+ times it was actually pretty straight forward. I highly recommend this game for anyone even particularly interested. I will play through it again in another way. If you have any problems, shoot me a message and I might help you out, I do not want to spoiler anything. cheers!

Edit: Tried the second way, and ended up at the same story fork after a few dialogs so there is not much replayability.
