Let's start with the art, but I don't want to put too much emphasis on it because I'm a huge fan of DCS' style so I'm going to be biased towards that. But I mean come on, look at it. It's glorious. The character designs are spooky but compelling, the setting is vibrant but sinister. The music is perfect. It's haunting but not creepy, and it fits every scene so well. And the finale is just fantastic.
But the story! The way it drops you into an already established situation with characters that are familiar to each other but not the player, and how everything is slowly revealed and expanded upon? It's wonderful. It allows us to empathize with the characters, to feel the tension, the sorrow, the futility... throw in some dark humour and you've got a winning combination. The writing is TIGHT. The story is engaging! I can't wait to see how this story plays out!
ps Beracus and Lee are heckin' cuties, omg I love them so much.
