One of the things that excited me the most while previewing and playing the title was Game news. Who loves and plays Interactive dramas Be aware that this type of game is usually quite limited In this regard, for the camera, the movement of the characters and mainly the way they interact with the environment.
on review the devil in me It shows that this game will be very fluid in this aspect. Except A private inventory For each character, the title bets big on a few puzzle A different and gigantic place for you to study. But what really excited me was now Characters will be able to run, jump and also climb up in different fields.
As for the inventory, each character starts with something different depending on them team role Including the possibility that one of them Write everything down what’s up with the camera To store “evidence” of crimes. But in case of death of a character, others can carry his equipment.
Still about death, the preview presents a very tense scene in which The player must choose who will survive Between two characters: they are in two different rooms and you are the one who runs out of oxygen and dies.
