Through the second chapter and the game continues to get better. The gripes about the graphics are pretty petty. The backgrounds are fantastic, the models aren't incredible but they aren't awful either. The biggest issue is the animations which are very clunky: people turning around in place to get lined up correctly, etc. Sure it breaks immersion a little bit but I still think it's a large nitpick. If you play adventure games for cutting edge visuals and flawless animation then yeah, Gray Matter ain't your thing.

The story is really good so far, in my opinion, and you can just tell it's by a professional writer. The pacing is fantastic. Compare this to some recent adventures and it's just laughable the difference. So while the game may lack polish in the graphics/animation department, it lacks none in the writing... at least so far.
