The locations are pretty unique and the NPCS varying and interesting, but as usual this game tells its "story" with its visual design cues (and the rest of the stuff above) rather than text.
Don't get me wrong here. I am not saying you are going to like it or suggesting to give it another try. Just explaining why I adore it
