Anyone played this, or heard of it?

Just starting now. Feels really different. A bit early but I
think this is going to be a great game for me. Playing as a
schizophrenic detective with memory loss and alcoholism.
Just woke up naked in a hotel room.

It's one of the very best games I've ever played. The
writing is superb, and the characters have a ton of depth. I
found the setting endlessly interesting. I'm waiting a bit
to play it again, there's a ton of stuff I didn't get to
experience in my first playthrough. My wife's playthough
was quite different.

I don't want to give anything away.

I had to stop playing at various points just to take in the
soundtrack. Especially this tune.

I played as a libertarian ("Ultraliberal" in the game's
parlance) with an affinity for the supernatural.

I got some money every time I preached the free market, but
suffered like a -2 to empathy rolls, which was hilarious.

watched gameplay at the time and it looked boring

I'm right wit you, this and Fallout NV are both in my top 3.
Skyrim, Morrowind, Witcher 3, Planescape Torment or Baldur's
gate taking the third spot.

I'm definitely gonna be a commie as well for my next Disco
playthrough. Even though that's *probably* the slant of the
developers as well, they keep things pretty balanced in the
writing (ie every system goes to shit in the end), which I
genuinely appreciated.

the developers got this reward and in their acceptance
speech thanked Marx and Engels, so yeah

the game also pokes fun at and has serious critiques of
leftism, gave me stuff to think about

it should be said, for people that don't know the game, that
it's set in a different world, so everything is kind of
fresh (while also being recognizable, take the union stuff,
for instance). i liked the religion and the history, to name
some things. and of course the way it looked and felt

i see people saying on twitter that pentiment is a good
game

i wrote down Planescape Torment at some point, maybe because
Action Button named it. but i tried fallout 1, at some
point, and it felt kind of hard for me to get into such an
old game. i guess also because i'm not that much of a gamer
(except Trackmania, at the moment)

so this content creator i like, thought slime, started
streaming the game. but didn't finish it and commented he'd
rather just read a book. so that's a valid opinion, to me
