I loved this game for the reasons below:
1. Characters are unique.
2. You can be any kind of person you want. I chose for the wife to be a doctor, and as the game progressed I basically made her a technical inventor who built inventions to help solve colony problems.
3. The music, most often by Ehren Starks, is excellent and very much fits every scene. Who knew piano music could be so powerful?
4. You get the sense as you play that your actions effect others and they also have consequences. It was ironic, because at times I feared things might happen before I beat the game that never did based on my mistakes. Don't be surprised if people face danger or even die though. Be careful LOL. Or not. It can be fun for people ingame to get mad at you for being crazy and selfish, although it does hurt to hurt the feelings of characters... which says a LOT about how well written they are!
Looking forward to the sequel! Will play it!
