I've been sitting on this game for years.
My husband is an immigrant. We were scared of border checkpoints for 6+ years. Not because he'd done anything wrong, but because in the US, your fate is up to the officer you run into that day. So despite him having all the necessary paperwork to take a trip to Canada on our many Great Lakes vacations, we waited until he was a citizen.
Papers Please is obviously saying something. It's not exactly subtle about it. But to me, the reality of being tossed around by the American immigration system made it something I couldn't spend too long playing.
I won't be rating this game.
Immortality is very much my thing. And the films within this game are so well crafted. I would watch Minsky tomorrow.
But it fails to follow up on what I see as one of the greatest successes of its predecessor, Her Story: the credits. Her Story lets the player decide when the game is finished. Immortality decides for you, and in my case, I still had over half of the footage left to be viewed.
If it had nailed that moment, the putting together of the mystery, the way Her Story did, it might have been one of the best games this year.
