It's like a weird tone piece, it's so hard to explain this game. You look at it, and it's River City Ransom. You play it, and it's a lot like Punch Club's stat management. You'll encounter random scenes that play out like Persona conversations.
The story is almost nonexistent, but each scene is so perfect. The dialogue is True Detective levels of vague curtness. The ending comes out of nowhere, seemingly randomly, yet unavoidably.
How do you explain what makes this game so special? I don't even think I understand it myself. All the things I said above probably sound like negative points against the game. But although there are many things that are like parts of this, there is also nothing like this, and it will stick with you, sinking into you brain for weeks after the credits roll.
