Basic Premise: Explore your newly emerging psychic powers while figuring out exactly why half the students at your high school suddenly seem to be different people entirely.
- I really like this cast. Your relationships with old friends, classmates, and acquaintances feel like believable people, not cutouts. I cared about what happened to them.
- Some choice moments made me think for a minute about what this particular character would do given her/his values before I selected.
- The dialog phrasing can be amusing.
- Setting the story in high school let me select the dumb options. I can forgive a sixteen-year-old for being an idiot more easily than a thirty-something.
- The mystery plot, while not intricate, does not have any glaring plot holes or force your character to be stupid to get to the next scene.
- I found no coding or editing hiccups.
- The few forced emotional responses really stand out because you’re given so much variety in most situations. For example, your character will always be uncomfortable/slightly jealous of the richer students and their more expensive and newer clothing and backpacks. That’s not what I thought at sixteen (though I admit I’ve always been an odd duck). Also, even though there are several characters available as romantic options, your character always starts attracted to the same one.
Bottom Line: Recommended. This one made the replay list.
