Characters dialogue is all well-voiced which gives the game a greater sense of immersion. As the plot (and reality) starts to unravel it takes some darker turns into the horror territory of Twin Peaks or Stranger Things. But as well as the jump scares we also discover deep backstories and complex relationships between the group.
11+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You need to be able to follow the story closely. Resilience and persistence are important for dealing with twists that can throw you off.
