Elysium is the name of the fantasy world that the game takes place in. And disco music is involved in the game. So your notion isn't 100% wrong

Anyway, I wouldn't say Disco Elysium feels anything like a "choose-your-own adventure" or whatever. In fact, it doesn't play much differently than Torment: Tides of Numenera from a couple of years ago. That game did have combat, but not many fights and they were all stupidly easy.

The article title is obviously clickbait but it does have some truth to it. Disco Elysium does a lot of cool and new things, or at least it excels at certain things to an extent no other game has. Outer Worlds, well…no.
