DESCRIPTION


Neo Berlin 2062. Tina – a nine-year-old orphan – lives with SAM-53 – her big clumsy robot guardian –in a rooftop makeshift shelter in Neo-Berlin, a dark megalopolis controlled by corporations.

EXPERIENCE

Point and Click your way through a dystopian cyberpunk Neo Berlin in the year 2062 by directing 9 year old orphan Tina (Tea-ner in European English) and her “assigned at birth” Big Dumb Robot Nanny, Sam-53. Living day to day under a rooftop shelter, the duo makes a survival list that the player must seek out by searching and collecting items and info for solutions to the problem at hand. Manage your inventory of craptastic future trash by dragging items onto one another to combine them when possible (typically you get a “i can’t do that.” “That don’t go here” “Nuh huh” or drag an item onto an NPC who you have encountered to unlock dialogue, complete tasks or just to make swapsies. All in the name of survival and curiosity…

Described as Bladerunner meets Studio Ghibili meets Sam and Max…but I find it more like Bladerunner meets Boderlands meets Sam and Max.

Hits some Nostalgia for me, people have complained about politics in the game. There is a character who has a name that sounds like a real politician but looks and sounds nothing like them. Charming.

Art = A+
V/O = A okay for primary characters…B’s and C’s for secondary characters
Gameplay = A- it is Point and Click bordering on Find Objects game. It can be slow…but if you like Sam and Max type games…this will be pretty good.
Music = B+ Would be an A if I had not have gotten a copyright claim on YouTube.
Value = B+ $24.99 for 12+ hours of entertainment. It gets and A when on sale.

3 Tokens out of 4 possible Tokens or 3/4ths of a full Boop.
