I rolled credits on Telling Lies over the weekend, and, honestly, I wanted to like it more than I ended up liking it. I wanted to open this thread to get some discussion out there to see if there was anything that I missed that can really make the title land for me. I really liked the characters, and the topics it covers are interesting, but I was left a bit cold by the overall thrust of the story. I'm hoping that reading others' more positive experiences will let me expand my perspective.
This is an OPEN SPOILER thread for a STORY-DRIVEN game. Venture no further if you haven't played it and intend to.
Since this is the first post, I'll go ahead and put my plot-related thoughts in spoiler tags, just in case someone haplessly clicks into this topic, but consider open spoilers okay for posts following.
- Spoiler: show
Overall, I feel like the game has a lot of events
but very few themes
, despite the amount of topics it covers. Hoping that others can elucidate interesting aspects that can shed some new light on things I missed.
