Great game, great story, great puzzles.

The main mechanic of the game is not unique in the slightest, however the story focuses on the real-world implications of it and the ethical nature of the situation, making for a very unique experience.

Despite what some reviews say, I would not call this a metroidvania - in my playthrough I never had to backtrack. You can leave puzzles unsolved and backtrack for them later, but I just solved every puzzle I could find before progressing in the game.

I was a little disappointed at the length because it felt like there was so much more that could be done with the mechanics of the game - it felt like they limited the length of the game to suit the plot rather than just spacing out the story. (For reference, my initial playthrough of the game took only 3.5 hours). All the same, it is a great experience that I highly recommend.
