      The word of the day is: "Spined" I'm really happy to see they're enjoying the game so much. They're really good at it, i didn't expect their skills to transpose so well.

    Live now. Sound quality isn't great. I'm curious how they will approach this game as I find it to be a lot less of a puzzle and more of an investigation in the style of an escape room.

    It's a great game regardless and I recommend it to anyone who wants one of the most truly "detective" games ever made IMO.

      Also, make sure you've played the game or are not interested before you watch the video. It's a great game that suffers severely if spoiled. Don't do that to yourself unless you know you wouldn't wanna play it. The official marketing material, iirc, is very light (if at all) on spoilers.

        I would say you can safely watch the first 30min of the game in this stream if you wish to decide. There are spoilers but the beginning is very tutorialized. Seconding what you are saying though,...

        Seconding what you are saying though, this is a one of a kind experience and watching it will render you fully unable to play it for yourself in whatever you’ve already seen.
