I just finished playing this and I’m still stunned. It’s partly an RPG and partly a detective game. You play an amnesiac police officer trying to figure out who the hanged man is and who hanged him. You also have to figure out your name and why your gun and badge are missing.
The mystery is so complex and the characters are so bizarre that in many cases, I felt like I was playing Twin Peaks: The Game. The otherworldly setting isn’t quite post-apocalyptic, but after a terrible war, the authorities are struggling to keep the cities from falling into anarchy. It’s confusing and long-winded, but it’s the best game I’ve played in a long, long time.
