You are a suit. No really, you're the sentient (?) A.R.I.D. AI of a suit and you've crashed on an unknown planet. Your suit's pilot needs medical assistance and it is up to you to get it for her.
This game is an adventure game with some pseudo point'n'click mechanics. It has a great story line and good looking graphics and a nice overall vibe.
The suit has a bunch of capabilities that get unlocked as you find yourself in dire need for them. So in that regard it's somewhat of a metroidvanian as well. You also have a set of directives, like don't kill humans, which I suspect will be updated over time to adjust to circumstances.
The communications between the AI's are amusing, with one scene having "you" discuss with another suit that it's pilot died and that the AI (with whom you're discussing it) is now useless and you will terminate it to recover some energy. And the AI just goes "affirmative". At least he backpedals at the last moment, but by then it's too late. He only did so because you were trying to save a human, anyways. Makes sense to me.
Walking is slightly awkward, in a more typical point'n'click fashion. You interact with items by pointing a flashlight and pressing left-shift. This is a bit awkward at first but you get used to it quickly.
Verdict: This game was intriguing from the start. It did not disappoint. Controls take a little to get used to but story line is great, good humor, nice graphics, not too difficult. I'll definitely be playing more of this.
