An excellent Victorian superhero team game, August 13, 2020

This was one of the most enjoyable Choice of Games titles I've played. You play as a new recruit to a superhero society in Victorian London. It has an HG Wells feel, with brass mechanical creatures, airships, and aliens from each planet in the solar system.

You lead a team of superhero trainees in an attempt to discover the fate of the more trained superheroes, who have disappeared. Your team is very diverse: some essentially human, others from other planets, and another that's quite a bit like you.

The game offers a satisfying narrative arc and a variety of ways to interact. In one part, you can choose between three missions. In another, you explore a house for clues to a combination. In others, you choose how to allocate your assets and can even end up in a courtroom trial.

I thought it was great. Some of the achievments are a bit difficult to achieve, but I enjoyed it immensely, and look forward to playing the sequel.

I received a review copy of this game.
