This is really imaginative game that is highly reviewed by many respectable folks, yet despite all that my initial playthourghs were very frustrating and I'm not motivated to keep trying. So many things just resist me ejoying it:
A murder is committed and a book dropped that seems like evidence, but I can't interact with the book or the body.
Many somewhat interesting dialog trees later I find myself trying to navigate through a chat with a madman and attempting somehow not to anger him. Failing to appease him (not sure what I said wrong) I end up having to fight his platoon of mercenaries to save the ship and its crew.
I grab a rifle. head in, and am able to gun them all down pretty easily, but then everyone in the crew is very upset at all of the deaths (?!). I go back to a save (this is very well implemented ) and grab a non lethal weapon. Sure, okay ...
After some trial and error I am able to stun and incapcaitate the first two waves of mercenaries without any killing, but the the third wave is randomly immune to my stun weapon (has shields) and guns me down. A couple times. And the stun grenades are for a rifle I didn't pick up (learned that in Steam forum threads). You can only carry one weapon. I guess having stunned 10 mercs I could take rifle off of one of them and shoot their mates and boss dead...
When I went to reload to try the conversation with the madman again, the the game crashed and steam is updating it now synching all of my failures to the clouds. I learned that the fight I kept losing is avoidable from the forums as well ... it seems pretty bloody inevitable in my plays of the game.
Brilliantly conceived, pretty well executed, but barely playable.
