Wow, this is finally out. Adding a trailer link so anyone that haven’t heard about this game could easily check it out:


I can’t wait to try out the game. It seems like this could finally be the Planescape Torment inspired rpg I was hoping to be made some day: with an eyedropping artstyle and an interesting world setting that’s not your ordinary and overused fantasy or sci-fi. And from what I see there’s no combat? so I’m guessing you could even look at it as an adventure game.

Has anyone played it yet?

Played about 3 hours,story expands on many levels,differs from other rpgs with no combat whatsoever, adventure wise offers an engaging experience as classic ags.

There is so much in this game, that it is almost impossible to see everything in a single play through. There is no correct combination of skills one can take to play the game effectively; however, there are a number of thoughts that one can develop very early in the game, so as to cumulatively yield a large quantity of money and experience without forcing the player down any particular plot path…
A nice starting guide

I’m playing the game and totally loving it (very very slow. I’m only at day two and 4-5 hours have already passed. It’s definitely worth all the time spent paying attention to details and reading every freaking line of the billions of interactions and dialogue trees ...) I’m gonna post a thorough impression once I got more into it, but that’s definitely one of the most unique game experiences I’ve had for the year. I’m kind of sad for all the people in this forum who won’t play it just because it’s labeled as an rpg and not an adventure game (thus we’re discussing it here and not in the AG section). Frankly, for me this kind of game (holding tons of branching narrative, no combat, multiple solutions to every situation, immersive exploration and bunch of other stuff I’ve been dying to see in an adventure game) serves as a way better successor of the AG genre than:
1. repeating old formulas (pixel hunting, inventory puzzles etc.)
2. downgrading the challenge to an interactive story game
3. mix it with arcade/action elements to spice it up

Things like the “different character set” in Unavowed or the “three types of abilities” in Whispers of a Machine seemed like a breath of fresh air when I played them but this is nothing compared to what Disco Elysium has to offer in terms of replayability factor. I think it’s almost impossible to have two identical playthroughs in this game.

Well if no combat may count as adventure as well.


“Indeed, Disco Elysium isn’t especially interested in the typical binary ideologies explored in most RPGs. It pokes fun at extremism and at the same time chides you for any attempt to retreat into non-committal centrism, and it’s even less interested in trying to dodge politics. Instead it wants you to focus on the dynamics of power that structure society and the systemic changes required to repair the inequities of those relationships. This is a game with a specific, if complex, point of view and it’s not afraid to remind you of it even when it’s leaving room for you to explore other ideas.”
A perfect score from gamespot.
