I just finished my playthrough of the game, taking about six hours to do so. As other reviews stated, this is a visual novel. If you want a nice, relaxing experience without quick time events or the need for quick reflexes, you'll enjoy the 'game'.
The voice acting is as good as any AAA title. Some of the scottish slang confused me, so just try to get the gist of what they say and you'll still be able to follow along, be sure to have subtitles turned on. The artwork is excellent, and a joy to look at. With many scenes, I would take the time to admire the detail, which is likely why it took me so long to finish the story. Sound effects, audio cues, a lot of attention to detail was paid to this adaptation.
I would play the game in the evening, with the lights dimmed in my living room, using my TV as a display to a PC running SteamOS. Thanks to the developers for porting this to linux / SteamOS for I would not have had as enjoyable experience sitting so close to my main PC in my computer room.
I am looking forward to the next title the developers release. I honestly, had never heard of the original book until playing this title, and may look into reading it now. The main character also appears in other books the author had written.
