Still interested but I have doubts.
Especially when what is claimed to be delivered is that hard to be delivered.

The non linear story is a multi branch scripted story coming with a plot to advance.

The demand: the plot needs to be advanced. And from that point, the openness of a game world can put itself on the path of advancing the plot.

Therefore, one dimension has to be favour over the other. When you go for an open world, with depth and surprise, you have to give up on an over complex storytelling. And vice versa.

Open worlds and scripted stories generate incompatible demands.
