LOW Careening into enemies when I'm not even touching the controller.

WTF No boss battles?! Really?!

Pretentious, Prosaic, Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

The Old City: Leviathan Review Screenshot

HIGH Some genuinely tense, unnerving moments in the first chapter.

LOW Everything after the first chapter

WTF An entire novella's worth of backstory is included as optional collectibles.
