Awesome game, awesome music.

/!\ Spoiler alert for the endings

Excellent game. It was so good that as some point I asked myself "Is this a demo for a game coming on steam ?" and it's not. I'm still shocked !

The gameplay is really solid with a lot of differents ennemies. The weapons are, almost, all usefull ( yeah i'm looking at you flametrhower ) and the augmentation system work perfectly (my personal favorite is the one that make you faster. I want more of those just to make a "déjà vu" meme)

The story is really good. There's a lot of detail everywhere and reading the last moment of somebody life is always fun, no ?
But the true quality of the story are the dialogue. Sure it's fun to make choices ! But the dialogue feel really organic. Because at the start they underestimate your character and near the end everyone call you to convince you to join their side.
And then there's the big weakness : the endings.
So there's different endings, but the "good" endings : the one where you join the hijackers because they're obviously the good guy, as their hobby of killing old people in hoverchair suggest, is really frustrating.
First : you don't know what happen to you, because yeah an unstopable old person is too much raw power for the narrative. That can be said for all the ending, except the one where the station explode and you're still on the station... Yeah you're screwed in that one.
Second : Everyone die... Because ! "Oh yeah there's log of them on the ship". Oh yeah ? The destroyed ship ? The one that just exploded right ? And what does that mean that they have logs of them ? They have their voices ? Big deal ??? Either my bad comprehension of the english language striked again or this is just poorly explained or straight up bullshit... Or I'm really really dumb
Third : Where are all the eight dead person ? I have 100% completition and it always say that there's 8 dead person... But I can only found 4 corpse !

Graphism. Bla bla I like pixel art. blabla it's cool blabla. The map does wacky things sometimes but that's ok I guess. During the fight against the hacker the dialogue are hidden behind the boss health bar

Music : I like it. I never feeled that it was on loop. I never feeled that it was too loud. I never feeled that it was shit and that I wanted to hang myself because of it.
So, solid soundtrack ! I want the ost. Hand me the ost.
Now

Overall : Really good game !.. But don't you dare making ending like that ever again or I will hunt you down and burn your script.
And maybe explain why I don't thinks that type of ending suits the game really well...
But most importantly KILL YOUR DOGS *evil french noise*

Also, I'm sorry for my poor english, I'm french so I'm dumb.
And thanks for reading this feedback.

this game is so addicting.Which is why it's good!

I love the gameplay and its really cool, but i have no idea what i was supposed to do...

Great game! 5/5, but that was really hard!
