About the StoryThe skyscraper is silhouetted against the horizon, an open scar on the skyline, rising until it’s lost in the clouds. A promise of prosperity, of something never reached. A monolith of what we once were and might not be again. A beacon in the night, for those who still believe in the strength of concrete, steel and flesh.
[This game contains explicit language, intense violence, blood and gore, drug consumption and sexual references.]
[The game is mobile friendly and it is optimized for all screen sizes.]

The Breakfast Review
There is supposedly some complex stat-tracking involved to determine the sort of person you are based on your choices; presumably there are alternate actions available to people who play a certain way, but I do not think I saw anything that appeared as a result of being "character appropriate" as opposed to being an immediate result of the previous action. Perhaps I haven't explored deeply enough, or perhaps the alernative choices require adherence to a much narrower and more specific path than the ones I trod.

The game is not too long, and there are some difficulties with the translation. However, on more playthroughs, it has more features: more branches, randomization, multiple languages.
