Ok, the game is pretty and the automaton idea is nice. But that’s it.
Movement is a pain and there’s too much useless screens, so that moving around takes ages and is just upsetting.
Dialogues are slow, as is the story which will not get you very far in the end.
Puzzles are rendered draining by the movement problem.
From the same period please play The Longest Journey, and you’ll see what a real good game was at that time, with real imagination inside. Not this over-hyped imagination-lacking unfinished thing. (Because, yes, you’ll have to play the second one to finish the story…)
