Good start, ok-ish ending. Made by die-hard SJWs that start with some good ideas, but degrade into agenda-pushing towards the end. This one though is at least trying, so it's slightly melodramatic in bits, but it doesn't go too far and overall story still prevails. But their next game is just a disaster.

One of the best adventure games done in AGS ever, the voiceover work is pretty well done, the plot is great (yeah ending not so much I guess) and the puzzles are the good kind of Lucas/sierra ones.

Disclaimer: I got this game for free as it was given away on Steam a while back. That may influence my opinion since if I'd spent money on this I'd probably think more about whether I really enjoyed it or not.

 

Just finished the game. While my opinion may change as I sit on what I thought about it, overall I enjoyed it. There were a few drama parts to it, though in general I think it was a pretty interesting story.

 

I don't think you can actually die all too often in this game. There are like 2 instances I'd think you could die at and maybe 1 that would lead to a game-over. I was able to get through the game without any deaths, so it has that going for it. It's fairly obvious what you need to do to get out of those situations as well, so you'd more or less have to be unaware for one of them or trying to intentionally lose to the other two.

 

The puzzles were enjoyable. I'm not the smartest, so one of them later on had me a bit confused but eventually I got it. For anyone who's decent at solving puzzles, this game is most likely on the easier side, maybe dipping into medium for the one that got me confused.

 

I enjoyed the characters, specifically Kathy,

Spoiler

Goober and Charles Wade. Cocky was another one I liked, along with the weird appearance from Lily's spirit(?).

 

I'd give it a rating of Good.

Man my game tastes are like, the complete opposite compared to most people on the forums, but I really didn't even get past the first room.

I just didn't like the main character at all, and it just didn't really click with me, I don't even remember why, I just didn't find it engaging much.

 

I remember just not liking the characters, I don't know why.

The main character is a bit of an asshole and seems like a fantasy alt-girl rather than a real person.

 

A lot of effort went into and I would like a sequel with better story, maybe exploring the weirder aspects of the game.

 

As a whole, it's a ok/good adventure game. Wasn't frustrating, but wasn't all that engaging either.

I agree whit RaTcHeT302... didnt like the main character so i didnt arrive far in the game... for the rest i like the graphics and the puzzles was fair, but again didnt arrive far... i like it much more "The Samaritan Paradox" (except for the end) and "Whispers of a Machine"

In short, a Twin Peaks little sister.

 

Played it right after "Whispers of a machine". Albeit the latter is more polished, I think "Kathy Rain" is more intriguing and cool in terms of the story: weird stuff happening in a provincial town... trying to solve some family mystery... meeting creepy people...

 

Honestly, I think the main character, Kathy, is great. You just need to play little more to see what she's been through and why all this behaviour. At the end I ended up liking her. Also to mention some others:

Spoiler

- Goober, the bum, is great and fun to talk to. He knows quite a lot about modern cinema!
- The creepy "Lynch" guy, is cool, like his creepy voice and look. You know when you see...

 

Technically, there are some problems due to that you can freely travel between locations and talk to people but sometimes you just need to do something in a correct order and given in mind that there are unskippable animations etc. the game pace is kinda slow.

 

But overall it's 4.5/5.
