I must say I was VEEEERY impressed by this game! Some quick thoughts retrospectively:

+ amazing living world

+++ beeeautiful landscapes

++++ the story is so incredibly dirty and believable, chaotic and realistic

+ exploration in all directions

– no choices or branching, or dialogue lines

+ amazingly interesting chracters

+ very interesting locations

+ a bunch of interesting stuff to do

++ the life perspectives of the characters are just so incredibly fascinating and diverse. From the story of the main character to every single person you encounter on the way, you can’t help but be fascinated by the story of even the not very lovable characters.

+ very interesting surprise ending (after you thought the game was done)

Overall: +4 (on a -5 to 5 scale). This might be the best game of the year for me. Shocking that i’d grade so high a game with no story branching or dialogue choices but the story and environments were THAT good. This game managed to be a total surprise and immediately go in my mind to the top of all western stories/movies/books I’ve ever experienced.

here’s some more about the game world:
