super cool and unique story game and really amazing storytelling wowowow


Não é ruim, só to sem saco, um dia eu posso voltar btw


Although I watched this around the beginning of 2019, returning to Lucas Pope's follow-up to Papers, Please myself was no less enjoyable. The game's mystery and deductive-reasoning gameplay are woefully unrepresented elsewhere, and it would be great if anyone decided to make similar games, no matter how derivative. For every fucking awful Batman game (sure, combat is terrific, but the investigative aspects are as flimsy as can be), one desires something of more substantial weight that isn't just Myst or some other opaque point-and-click adventure. Nothing else compares, which makes Return of the Obra Dinn one of 2018's best (just below Swery's The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories, which I need to get around to).


Played for half an hour, didn't understand it, thought I would abandon it. Gave it another shot, and it clicked in a big big way. I adore this game. My only regret is looking up a hint on the very last puzzle, which was silly of me.
