Visual novel aficionados may be left unsatisfied by its mechanics and presentation; but there’s plenty of heart to be found in this adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novel.
An incredibly entertaining and pleasantly compelling narrative-driven game; one that’s self-aware without smugly winking-and-nodding at the audience. That’s not an easy feat, but The Wild Gentlemen have clearly made great efforts to create a world that can make you laugh out loud without sabotaging its narrative.
Fans of The Walking Dead might be a bit disappointed by how the crossover manifests in the writing. But if you’re potentially hungry for a challenging and mentally satisfying puzzle game with a bit of Walker-slaying flavour, it’s a fun little experiment, even if slightly undercooked.
