Dyscourse Review and more

GameInfo: Dyscourse is an interactive choose-your-own adventure where you journey through a stylized world of choice and consequence. You play as Rita, an unfortunate art school grad turned barista, who is now stuck on a desert island with a crew of oddball travelers after a plane crash. That last choice you just made? It may end up being integral to your group’s survival, or it may lead you down a path to murder and cannibalism!

Review: You’ll definitely like this game if you like choose your own adventure games, or just adventure games in general. Going through the story once hasn’t taken me more than 2 hours, but don’t let that make you think this game is small- it’s packed with tons of different paths to take in the storyline, with each path revealing a different part of the story. I found myself replaying to piece together the whole picture, favoring some characters over others to get new information out of them. If you find yourself having trouble committing to a long video game, or forgetting where you are in the game, Dyscourse might be a good match for you, as it was for me.

Additionally, the style of the game is beautiful and very quirky, and the colors are a nice balance of saturated and subdued. Very easy to look at for long periods of time if you find yourself playing for hours on end. Music adds a lot to the mood of each scene, and the writing is smart and charming. Pay close attention to what you read! And choose wisely. 😉

Overall: Buy this game. Throw your money at it. Play it forever.
ALSO: There’s a cute cat with fluffy ears in the game. Do it for the cat.
