Soon you’ll be embroiled in a mystery that expands from missing organs, an antagonistic detective and biker gangs all the way up to the dynastic control of one of the largest Megacorps.

this game is open world?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

No, but it does a good job of feeling like it. You're mostly just escorted from quest to quest. There's a nice amount of exploration too, so it's not an issue imo. It's a great game.

I can't remember, did they ever say it was going to be open-world, or at least semi-open?

Or was I just misinterpreting the news reports on their site?

If not, there's always this one, to which I must admit, seems a lot like Shadowrun Returns:

It is a brilliant indie game, at almost every angle.

Has two huge downsides though:
- a horrible save system (neither proper autosaving/checkpoint saving nor actual manual saving - you copy "autosaves" to do that) - you cannot save at any point only the start of an area
- a lack of voiceovers/voiceacting which would spice dialogues up greatly
