The Old City: Leviathan
Set in a decaying city from a civilization long past, The Old City puts the player in the shoes of a sewer dwelling isolationist called a Minotaur who ascends to the world above. The environment is an character in itself that will literally respond to the protagonist in various ways. Whether subtly rearranging itself to open or close pathways, hinting at some larger meta-narrative, or actually communicating with the character using written words, the environment is a responsive entity that acts as the second half of the conversation. Your task is to act as an observer to this conversation and to pick up on the flow of communication between the two parties.
The Old City: Leviathan review
Submerged beneath the gorgeous visuals of this surreal exploration is an abstract story that never really grips.
