Impressive cinematography and camera work show that the person behind the camera and the montage was quite talented. And for a low budget interactive movie, the sets and effects are quite good, with the exception of a few glaring items.
On the other hand, I’d say that the acting is sub-par and wooden, with the exception of a few side characters, the rest of the cast plays like they are reading the script and in many occasions overact when trying to add some tension to a scene. It feels like a b-movie like Sharknado, which you “enjoy due to its poor quality”.
My biggest qualm though is the fact that it doesn’t really have that much replayability. the 9 endings are in reality 3. 1 in four minor variations, another 1 in four minor variations and 1 “secret death”. In less than three hours I had seen most of them and uncovered almost all scenes.
And many choices throughout the game don’t really amount to anything as you are just transferred to the same scene afterwards no matter what.
It was a good opportunity and I applaud the production design, but the acting and the writing leave much to be desired.
