About the StoryThe storefront will just be a big window, the interior cloaked with dark, ornately patterned curtains. You'll have a neon sign, of course: "PAST PRESENT FUTURE."

However, I have a soft spot for the setting and tone and concept. And there is a sequence where (Spoiler - click to show)you are giving a client a reading, and are given the opportunity to play it straight, unscrupulously gather information about the client, and/or try to use some psychology/intuition. I quite liked that, as well as the vague sense of unease provided by a later scene and by the abrupt, open ending--which perfectly caps this particular experience.
I suspect that, in the future, if Texture takes off and there is a wider variety of games using it, this review may change. As it stands, it's worth playing to see how Texture works and have an enjoyable little experience.

There is an elegant twist in this, and it's pleasingly circular, topping off the whole game like the proverbial cherry on the ice cream. Predictions is brief and very largely linear, but hides a positively delightful surprise.
