Review of Why Am I Dead at Sea by emric

Way more engaging than I was expecting

I guess I was only expecting this to be a lite little mystery adventure, so I was surprised with just how engaged I became with it. Sure there’s only half a dozen locations, but some unique point’n'click gameplay mechanics (2 different levels of character possession, individualised character abilities) kept the proceedings feeling fresh and fun. The plot was more developed and characters way deeper than I was expecting. The dialogue style rolled out like retro Japanese RPGs/Adventures—similar to ‘To the Moon’. And the music was way better than I was expecting. My low expectations must’ve stemmed from the visuals which, even for a retro lo-res pixel style, are on the drab side—but this didn’t turn out to be a hindrance to overall enjoyment.
