Great choice for a new game


This game is fantastic! I have owned it now for a couple years and still play it frequently. Sort of like a “High-tech” steam-punk theme. Amazing artwork, intriguing plot, and game play is smooth and challenging. Dont be afraid to spend some of your entertainment budget money here, because you will be pleased. I have never had issues with this game, so I can’t comment on customer support, but that in itself is an outstanding comment. Have fun! :)

Just Different

This game is amazing. I just want to thow that out there. The gameplay in extremely innovative, the story isn’t the most wonderful thing in the world, but I did find the plot very engaging and sometimes even emotional, and best of all, you can play in again and again before it starts getting old. Love it. Love it love it love it. Only bad thing: A bit short for the price. That’s it.



I purchased the game yesterday and it crashes halfway during loading. I’ve contacted Support but have yet to hear back (which, in fairness, is understandable since it’s two days before Christmas). I uninstalled and reinstalled the app but results are still the same. I’m using a mid 2015 MacBook Pro with a 2.2 GB processor and 16 GB of memory, so I don’t think it’s too much for my machine to run. If you’ve been debating purchasing this game, I would wait to make sure this issue gets resolved. If/when I get this resolved, I’ll reassess my review, but for now I can’t recommend this game.
