This is an excellent detective story. The basic structure is very simple: somebody died, here are your four suspects, now go gather intel and figure out if one of them is a murderer. The story proceeds with perfect logic even as things get weird and scary. Assembling the history of the cast and putting two and two together is a pleasure.

Gameplay is also very simple and the game can be played entirely with a mouse. (It was designed for VR but plays beautifully on a standard desktop PC.) Explore the environment, read clues, use objects, solve easy puzzles. It plays very much like any traditional "point and click adventure", except from a first person perspective that really drew me in. The game will not stump you or have you tearing your hair ... but it will keep you on edge and force you to pay some attention to the evidence you find to correctly solve the mystery.

The main line of the story is straightforward, and most importantly for a mystery, does not "cheat". It has a few solid twists to keep you thinking, but the whole thing doesn't hinge on some ridiculous surprise ending you can't predict. The mystery is perfectly "fair"; perhaps even too easy, but I'm OK with that.

Above and beyond the minimum amount of info required to give you a decent shot at guessing the mystery's solution, there is a great deal more waiting for you. If you really dig deep, putting together the more obscure elements reveals a truly fascinating story. After finishing the game, I watched a friend play, and even though she read the same clues I did, I learned much more seeing it the second time around. The game may look simple, but the story has a great deal of depth and subtlety.

Short game; I finished in under three hours from beginning to end. Well worth an evening of your time! $15 might seem like a lot for such a quick piece, but it's solid adventure gameplay, no filler. I paid full price and I don't feel ripped off. Also glad to support these devs as the design is impeccable. Can't wait to see what they do next.
