Über das Spiel

State of Mind ist ein futuristischer Thriller über Transhumanismus. Das Spiel erzählt von Isolation und Identität, von Trennung und Wiedervereinigung -- in einer zukünftigen Welt, die tief gespalten ist zwischen realer Dystopie und virtuellem Utopia. Mit verschiedenen spielbaren Charakteren, mehreren Erzählebenen und zwei unterschiedlichen Spielwelten erkundet State of Mind das Drama einer Gesellschaft auf dem Weg zur postmateriellen Existenz.

In State of Mind endeckt Richard Nolan, ein Vater und Journalist im Berlin des Jahres 2048, dass an ihm -- und womöglich auch an seiner Frau und seinem Sohn -- ein Bewusstseinsupload vollzogen wurde. Allerdings ist bei dem Upload etwas schiefgegangen, und die Folgen sind drastisch. Richard, schwer angeschlagen, lebt noch immer in seiner gewohnten Realität. Aber zugleich existiert eine unvollständige Version seines Selbst in einem Virtual-Reality Projekt. Als Richard erkennt, dass er buchstäblich ein gebrochener Mann ist, macht er sich auf eine dramatische Suche. Er will seine Familie, sein Selbst, sein ganzes Leben wieder zusammenbringen. Aber auf seiner Reise stellt er fest, dass es hier um weit mehr geht als sein persönliches Schicksal.

Features:
  • 3rd Person Adventure
  • Storygetriebene Spielerfahrung
  • Wechseln zwischen zwei Spielwelten
  • Mehrere Erzählebenen
  • Verschiedenne Spielbare Charaktere
  • Einzigartiger visueller Stil

Durch die Polygongrafik wirkt alles reduziert, kühl, detailarm, lieblos. Ich dachte, man gewöhnt sich daran, aber nein, es ist einfach trist und hässlich! Außerdem ist die Geschichte sehr langatmig ausgedehnt. Spannung oder Motivation kam bei mir nicht auf. Außerdem handelt es sich um eine Dystopie, ich weiß nicht, warum Storyschreiber immer so viel Angst vor der Zukunft verbreiten wollen. Das Setting ist einfach nur pseudophilosophisch, uninnovativ, übertrieben ängstlich und herzlos. Sorry, nicht mein Ding.

State of Mind gibt sich Mühe eine kontroverse Geschichte zu erzählen, scheitert dabei aber an einem extrem zähen Einstieg und unglaublich unsympathischen Charakteren. Mit niemandem kann man sich identifizieren, jeder wirkt so, als wäre ihm eigentlich alles egal. Der kantige Grafikstil ist ebenfalls nicht besonders gut umgesetzt.
Leider hat das Spiel viele Chancen verspielt.

State of Mind
SciFi Abenteuer von 2018.

State of Mind ist ein futuristischer Thriller über Transhumanismus. Das Spiel erzählt von Isolation und Identität, von Trennung und Wiedervereinigung in einer zukünftigen Welt, die tief gespalten ist zwischen realer Dystopie und virtuellem Utopia. (Daedalic)

Diese kurze Beschreibung sagt eigendlich schon alles aus über dieses Indie. Aber da ist viel mehr, so viel mehr Inhalt.

Berlin, 2048 – Die Welt steht am Abgrund. Ressourcenknappheit, Krankheiten durch verschmutzte Luft und Trinkwasser, ausufernde Kriminalität, Krieg. Regierungen und Konzerne versprechen Heilung durch Fortschritt; Drohnen und humanoide Roboter ersetzen Menschen im öffentlichen Dienst, alles ist miteinander vernetzt, die Überwachung ist allgegenwärtig geworden. (Daedalic)

Wie ihr dem Hintergrund entnehmen könnt ist der Zustand der Welt total Dystopisch. Übernimm die Rolle von etlichen Protagonisten im Spiel, da durch hast du die Möglichkeit die Zukunft zu ändern, von Millionen Menschen, auch deine in Richtung Utopi zu verschieben.

Ein Thriller um eine weltumspannende Verschwörung, deren Kernfragen über das Schicksal der Menschheit entscheiden.

Dieses Spiel besteht zu großen teilen aus sehr gut gemachten Filmsequenzen. Dazwischen wirst du selbst aktiv und das ist überaus gut gestaltet. Du musst etliche Rätsel aufdecken, treffe weitreichende Entscheidungen und verändere deine Welt und den Handlungsablauf mit verschiedenen Enden. Ziemlich lineares Spiel auf relativ engen Raum mit Detail verliebter Umgebung. Das einzige was ich nicht verstehe, warum nur sind die Personen grafisch derart miserabel anzusehen? Ansonsten ist es in seiner Art unvergleichlich gut. Es gibt meines Wissen kein vergleichbares Spiel, es ist überwältigend.

Es gibt ein Hauptcharakter den du übernimmst, den Journalist Richard Nolan. Um ihn dreht sich der Großteil der Geschichte. Da ich nicht verraten will was er so alles erlebt und macht werde ich nun mit einer Empfehlung meine Review hier beenden.

Eindeutige Empfehlung für alle denen eine Geschichte wichtig ist.

State of mind
SciFi adventure of 2018.

State of Mind is a futuristic thriller about transhumanism. The game tells of isolation and identity, of separation and reunification in a future world that is deeply divided between real dystopia and virtual utopia. (Daedalic)

This short description actually says everything about this indie. But there is much more, so much more content.

Berlin, 2048 - The world is on the brink. Resource scarcity, illnesses from polluted air and drinking water, escalating crime, war. Governments and corporations promise healing through progress; Drones and humanoid robots are replacing people in public service, everything is networked, surveillance has become ubiquitous. (Daedalic)

As you can see from the background, the state of the world is totally dystopian. Take on the role of several protagonists in the game, as this gives you the opportunity to change the future of millions of people, including yours towards Utopi.

A thriller about a global conspiracy whose key questions determine the fate of humanity.

This game largely consists of very well-made film sequences. In between you become active yourself and that is very well designed. You have to solve a number of puzzles, make far-reaching decisions and change your world and the course of action with different ends. Quite linear game in a relatively narrow space with a detailed environment. The only thing I don't understand, why are the characters so miserable to look at graphically? Otherwise it is incomparably good in its kind. As far as I know there is no comparable game, it is overwhelming.

There is one main character you take on, journalist Richard Nolan. Most of the story revolves around him. Since I do not want to reveal what he experiences and does, I will now end my review with a recommendation.

Clear recommendation for all those who care about a story.

Die Story ist so verdammt gut, könnte auch direkt aus der Feder von Asimov stammen.

Nach etwas mehr als 2 Jahren hab ich diesen Titeln nun auch selbst mal nachgeholt und verdammt nochmal, ich hätte schon viel eher auf dieses Meisterwerk aufmerksam werden soll.
Klar, all zu viel Gameplay sollte man nicht erwarten, dafür bekommt man eine umso besser gestaltete Welt die mit einem wirklich passendem Stil umgesetzt wurde.
Als Sahnehäubchen oben drauf (für Sahneliebhaber sogar ein ganzer Eimer Sahne) bekommt man eine wunderbare Story die absolut keinen Zeitpunkt abbremst um Spielzeit zu strecken sondern einfach Gas gibt ohne zu vergessen den Spieler immer weiter in die eigene Welt aufzusaugen und nach 10h Spielzeit in einem packendem Finale gipfelt.

State of Mind besitzt zwar im Herzen eine interessante Idee mit Potential und einer tollen Atmosphäre, aber behindert sich selbst durch eine vorhersehbare Story mit Logiklücken und einem abstoßend unsympathischen Hauptcharakter namens Richard.

Das Spiel erschafft auf jeden Fall ein spannendes Cyberpunk-Thriller Setting und bietet eigentlich sehr viel: Äußerst gelungene Umgebungen, die durch passenden Soundtrack an Atmosphäre und Glaubhaftigkeit gewinnen. Gute Synchronsprecher, die die sonst emotionslosen Animationen beleben. Ein vielversprechender Rahmen an dem ich nichts auszusetzen habe, ABER ... dieser verdammte, dieser dumme, dieser schreckliche Richard-Mir-Sind-Alle-Mittel-Recht-Nolan. Es gab eindeutig zu viele Stellen, an denen ich vollkommen gegenteilig handeln hätte wollen, aber leider war das nie möglich. Richard ist ein selbstgefälliger, betrügerischer, manipulativer und opportunistischer Furz in der Welt. Mir ist absolut schleierhaft wieso manche Protagonisten/Protagonistinnen ihm überhaupt so viel Vertrauen und Hingabe widmen.

Ich habe dem Spiel wirklich eine Chance gegeben, doch am Ende hat mich einfach alles genervt. Ich wollte nur noch das Ende und die Credits rollen sehen. Ich hatte auf einen rettenden Abschluss gehofft, aber er kam nicht. Die Story driftete in eine Richtung, die ich schlichtweg für unglaubwürdig hielt. Nicht nur wegen den Storytwists (die unterwältigend vorhersehbar und flach waren), sondern weil ich die Charaktere für erschreckend irrational hielt und dadurch sämtliche Entscheidungen als grenzwertig lächerlich empfand.

All round awesome interactive fiction game. A must-play, if you like interactive fiction and don't totally hate Science Fiction.

Great story, great characters, Doug Cockle voices Richard, which is a bit odd at first, but is actually spot-on for the jaded grouch. The art-style is special and fits the theme like a glove. There is humour to be found in all the seriousness.

The story and themes dealt with aren't things that you have never heard of. They are the kind of things you expect from something cyberpunk and that you've possibly seen in variations in several other places. It's no surprise there are Blade Runner or Neuromancer easter-eggs in the game. But the developers have woven some fresh fabric from the same yarns. And if they fail to answer all the questionsin the end, that's almost part of the genre, as well.

The presentation as a game is also excellent. You get to play as various characters, each with their own perspectives, but not to the point where you forget who the main protagonist is. Even if the story doesn't seem to change in an major way depending on most of your choices, it still feels like you can leave your marks. There are mini-games too that provide variety to the gameplay, like hacking, steering drones, etc.

Thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. It's hard to find negative aspects, unless maybe an issue with alt-tabbing in the MacOS port and no real way to contact support. The Windows version worked fine.

Ein fehlgeschlagener Versuch einer Film-Spiel-Verquickung. Bzw. bei der Laufzeit eher einer Serie.
Die Inszenierung ist sehr darum bemüht, durch Kamera und Zwischensequenzen einen cineastischen Eindruck zu erzeugen, macht das aber nicht gut. Babys erstes Filmprojekt. Finger weg von der deutschen Synchro, sie macht ein unterdurchschnittliches Skript zur Katastrophe.
Das Gameplay besteht fast ausschließlich aus rumlaufen und ist bei allem einfach sperrig und langsam.

Es gibt durchaus hier und da gute Ideen, aber die Umsetzung ist einfach schwach.

Ein grandioses Spiel, welches uns den derzeitigen Wandel aufzeigt und die Augen öffnen sollte (Stichwort Initiative-2045 mal bei Wikipedia schauen). Schäme mich fast schon, es für 1,99 im Sale gekauft zu haben. Eine super Story und tolle Charaktere. Leider sind die Zwischensequenzen teils sehr lang aber im Gesamten stört es dann nicht.
Wirklichen Einfluss hat man nicht aber das Ende kann man selbst bestimmen! Wer sich für die Thematik um Matrix und KI interessiert, wird dieses Game in Cyberpunk-Optik lieben.

Es spielt sich leicht dahin und ist somit auch für Gelegenheitsspieler geeignet. Klare Kaufempfehlung

Regelmäßig wird das Spiel im Sale für 1,99 Euro angeboten, dabei ist es mehr wert! Durch die Polygon-Darstellung ist es auch nach vier Jahren noch nicht gealtert. Und das Disgn der Zukunftswelt ist herausragend und mMn in diesem linearen Adventure noch besser als beim Openworld Egoshooter-Adventure Deus EX Mankind Devided, die Außen- und Innenarchtektur der Welt: kreativ, durchdacht, interessant. Rätsel gibt es nicht, auch kein Inventar. Zu Klicken gibt es dennoch so einiges. Die Thematik erinnert an SOMA. Der Schwerpunkt liegt eher auf der tollen Geschichte, die mich bis zum Schluss gefesselt und unterhalten hat. Wirklich ein Kleinod deutscher Programmierkunst. Danke dafür an die Entwickler.

Nice soundtrack, unique graphics, very, very interesting story with high-tech future imagination. I've got a lot of questions while playing and probably still have some left till now. Well, gotta google that I guess. Minus is, sometimes controlling characters would be a pain because of their silly third-person movements. In particular - worth it.
Edit: Whou, Doug Cockle (The Witcher) voice acted main character ~

State of Mind is an adventure game with a cyberpunk setting and revolves around VR. This game has a unique, low-poly artstyle to portray the characters and environment. While the characters look less detailed because of the artstyle, the environment looks gorgeous, a futuristic city with neon lights. Many locations reminded me of the Deus Ex games. Another point of interest for me is that the main character, Richard Nolan, looks like Deus Ex's Adam Jensen, while voiced by Doug Cockle, aka Geralt from The Witcher.

The gameplay mostly consists of walking around and interacting with characters or objects, but there are some light puzzle elements, nothing too hard. The story is pretty interesting, but honestly I must say the ending is kinda disappointing. Without spoiling too much, let's just say there's almost no closure between the protagonists and antagonists. There's also many seemingly important events and issues going on around the world, but barely explored in the end. I'd still recommend this game, if you are looking for cyberpunk games or if you just finished The Witcher and want to hear Geralt's voice again.

Well it's one of these games you should buy on sale.
I'ts mostly a good game. Awesome in some parts but lacks in other aspects.

Pros
~Nice aesthetics. Low poly but modern.
~Most of it, has great plot.
~Nice characters.
~Really intence in cerain moments.
~Great balance of dialogues-action-puzzles.
~Fluent animations.
~Good music.

Neutral
~I takes 9-11 hours to complete.

Cons
~I ve encountered a bug that had me replay a section of the game. Not too big, about 10 mins, but still annoying.
~It crushed on me 2 times. Froze. Didnt respond.
~Plot holes. The worst thing is that they are all close to the ending. It spoils the good work that's be done during the whole game. I'd prefer one or two solid endings than four with plot holes.

All and all it's a good game but not flawless. And for about 10 hours gameplay without real replayability value 30 Euros may be a bit much. I got it form a previous humble bundle so it was a bargain for me. So if you are into sci-fi and andventure-puzzle games with heavy plot wait fo it to go in sale and buy it. It's a great experience. I m happy i ve played it.

Spoiler Alert:

[spoiler] If this game is good enough for Geralt of Rivia to voice act in, then it's good enough for me.[/spoiler]

Really, this game is turning out to be in a master class of it's own. The animation is spectacular in it's minimilism. The story is engaging, and the controls aren't too wonky. One of those games where when you have to go away from it for any reason, you can't wait to continue it.

Exactly why this review took away from my time in it. Cya.

This game heavily reminds me of former Playstation exclusives by Quantic Dream, Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human. It is a very narrative driven game, or putting it very bluntly, a long cutscene with tons of conversations sparsely sprinkled with bouts of player interactivity. This does not make it a bad game. It makes it a casual, sometimes interactive walk and an acquired taste. Or at least a very polarizing game. I'm leaning towards the recommended side.

It's a cyberpunk thriller set in 2084 about transhumanism and everything that it brings. Think Blade Runner, old and new mixed with a few more things, The Matrix, I,Robot and a few more. I even got a hint of Otherland: City of Golden Shadow by Tad Williams. The game's world building is excellent, bringing two immersive locations, dystopian Berlin and weirdly utopian City5, to life. The minimal, polygonal visuals and the overall aesthetics are very stylish and do not break the immersion of the game's weighty story. The game's soundtrack is also very good, further enhancing the joy of wandering around the locations.

The story itself is good, characters are well developed and voice acting is well done. The pacing could have been better. Sometimes it drags on too long and sometimes it dumps a giant exposition bucket with 15 facts at once on your head. But, it's just a minor gripe.

Gameplay is rather linear with not much player choice, most of the story is set no matter what you answer. There are lots of things to read and examine, filling out the world, but not much of it is actually useful in the context of progressing. Since the game is the story, I won't mention anything about it. Just know it's worth going through it at least once. It is an adventure game in a sense, but there are no actual puzzles or inventory use. What little of it there is, is very minimal and not challenging in any way.

One real issue I have is the very weird and wonky movement, like they were trying to somehow simulate the occasional jerkiness of people's movements, but it didn't translate into the game very well. It takes getting used to.

The game played smoothly and I've had no technical difficulties or crashes. Only once did the game bug out. When I was trying to take a screenshot, I wanted to position myself to get another character's face into the frame and that character moved, getting me stuck in place. Restarting the checkpoint solved the problem.

If you've played any Quantic Dream games, Indigo Prophecy was on the PC ages ago, or anything of theirs on the Playstation (or the Epic Store now), you'll probably like this game. For anyone else and fans of cyberpunk/sf, the world, story and characters deserve to be seen and heard at least once. The asking price is a bit of an issue for a game like this, but if you can get it on sale, you'll be more than satisfied.

Follow the Average Achievement Hunter Curator for reviews and useful information on Steam achievements: I finished the game with 21/34 achievements. There are lots of missable and limited achievements, but all of them can be done by loading checkpoints and chapters. The game does a good job autosaving and only two achievements require replaying larger bits of the game. None of the achievements are difficult and usually require making different choices in the playthrough.

First of all, not an adventure, more of an interactive novel. Barely any interaction short of running around and looking at things.

Second of all, WAY to ambitious. Tries to wrap all kinds of things into a story where characters act and show up how- and wherever the plot needs them to, the plans of the evil(?) company make no sense on a level where a bond villain would be ashamed of them and the main character's impact on the plot is near zero. The ethical questions the story could have asked fall by the wayside or are simply overlooked and the game goes on much longer than necessary.

The art style is certainly remarkable, but the gameplay is unnecessarily clunky - the characters have a turnaround radius like a truck at highway speeds.

State Of Mind is without a doubt one of the best sci-fi games I've ever played.

That is not to say that this game is for everyone. When scrolling through the negative reviews it is clear that this kind of game just isn't for those people.

I think you could compare this game to games like Detroit:Become Human (although I have not yet played that game myself) or movies like The Island (Most likely not everyone will agree with this but that's fine).

You should not compare this game to a Deus Ex or other futuristic action game since there is hardly any action in this game and mostly about the story and writing.

The writing/story, although it could have been better at some points, is quite good. In my opinion the (multiple) ending(s) could've been better, also the main character is an annoying ass from the start until the end of the game.

Graphically the game has a polygon kind of art which maybe takes some time getting used to but I personally liked it. The buildings and architecture in the game are amazing.

Overall, a must-play if you are into story-based scifi games/movies.

A decent cyberpunk story with very interesting visuals and a captivating mood. Unfortunately it doesn't go that deep into the ideas that it presents or the consequences of the technology, though it does a good job making it believable. The story chooses to focus on the relationships of characters and their drama, which doesn't personally interest me as much.

Gameplay was minimal; just enough basic puzzling and meaningless choices to not qualify as a walking simulator. It kept my interest and made the whole playthrough a relaxing experience.

I bought this on sale for 4,49 which it was definitely worth, but the normal price definitely isn't. Buy it in a sale!

Well... i just spent a Sunday playing it in one go.
What an amazing game. Fascinating story and great storytelling. Haven't really seen much like it. Also very in tune by being pretty Cyberpunky.
Highly recommend.

---
Yes, it's not perfect. but i had no real issues. Fov is too small, the (running) tank controls are a bit annoying.
And the character models ... well they look as they do.... It's a matter of opinion, i don't really like it, but it's probably art :-) . Don't let that put you of playing the game!

And some of the minigames are fun (The liquid sky one is even amazing), some are not so great. But none was too long or too annoying. And it doesn't bother you with quicktime events of any sort. All in all only small issues really.

Performance is good, Visuals...are (characters aside) great, ultrwide no problems. It took me 8 hours with taking my time. There is plenty replayability (i guess).

Pretty good telltale type of game. i would expect nothing less than perfection from daedalic, and this is no exception. It's a story heavy action/adventure game set in the future about who character who may seem meanspirited at first but has true details behind him. Although there are some bits i'd say are lacking story wise, this is a perfect daedalic game that fits well with the like of pillars of the earth.

This is an adventure game which basically a 3rd person equivalent of a point & click genre. Graphics are low poly but I found them suitable to the game theme. The story of this game is complex and very interesting. It explores the applications of VR in daily lives of the people and how it affects our perception of reality.

This game is by Daedalic Entertainment which I think are very good in adventure games. If you enjoy adventure games then definitely play this game.

I do not recommend getting this game at full price because you will feel cheated. It's a boring story with mediocre voice acting that is dragged on for too long and could've been over in 4 hours.

You're better off trying Daedalic's other titles, such as Edna and Harvey or the Deponia Series, albeit they are made for children, you will have a more pleasant experience with it than you will with this one.

Basically one of the best games I have ever played.

[h1] STRONGLY RECCOMEND 9.5/10 [/h1]


+Low poly, beautiful graphics
+Great plot. I could not leave my PC before finishing this game
+Mechanics are well-made, game does not crash
+Everything is not that obvious, I got shocked and surprised a few times
+A difficult and touching ending

-Sometimes too 'not obvious' – I felt powerless, lost and actually did not know what I have to do (this is the only disadvantage I have found)

I realize this 'game' is supposed to be an Avant garde piece, but I will still note I found it a boring waste of money,

- There's no interactivity, It's walking simulator. You run around for an hour looking for one of 5 possible actions.
- The lame story also drags on forever. Some journalist was in an accident and he learns his wife left him. Wow.
- Controls to move make turning really frustrating and you'll have no idea where to go next to progress the game,
- If you somehow stagger through the intro chapter waiting for the good part, you can't manually save anyway
- No. No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No. No.
- NO! Don't say you weren't warned I suffered through this for 3 hours trying to get to the part everyone was raving about.

Now it's too late to get $ back. There are too many other good titles to enjoy to burn more time here.

I rarely post reviews, but this game was so disappointing that I had to.

The gameplay is a non-existent phenomena in this game. Even running with your character feels crappy.
I could recommend this game (when it's on sale), because the music and the art style is good, but the story is so bad...the characters are unlovable, and this whole game feels like a waste of time.
[Not to mention that this game has so many bugs that I had to restart a game a few times]

I bought this game while it was on a sale, and I still regret it.
If you like the sci-fi/futuristic atmosphere (or at least what you think you will get when buying this game) then please spend your money to a better game in this genre( Remember me, Observer).
I can't comprehend why this game has a good rating, it's not a bad game but definitely not a good one.

Some good ideas and mostly good voice acting marred by some fundamental problems. While the game plays like a point and click style adventure game, there's nothing here that could really be considered a puzzle, so it leans very heavily on characters and story. While the main plot thread and the personalities of characters can be engaging, it is derailed by frequent plot-holes that are immediately apparent in several main story beats and seemingly important decisions that rarely make a noticeable impact beyond which achievements the game gives you.

Ultimately not a bad game, I never found it boring and enjoyed a decent amount of the dialogue and the environments were interesting to see, but I found myself repeatedly disappointed with inconsistent writing and uninteresting level design so would be hard-pressed to recommend it

Boring linear game with low exploration in a futuristic setting.

I purchased it for the futuristic setting, hoping to explore.

But with the graphics style and the minimal amount of real exploration its just very boring to play.

I do NOT recommend this game.

Awkward. Visually and plotwise a cross between Deus Ex and The Longest Journey. The characters are shallow and the dialogue is awkward most of the time(and poorly translated(from German?) at times). Not a horrible game but not really worth the time and money.

This is one of those games that look good, sound good, play well, and are in the end enjoyable but require a long attention span and from time to time you have to push yourself to play through some of the boring or confusing parts of the story to reach the good bits...

State of Mind is an interactive drama that plays like a hybrid of Detroit: Become Human and Quantum Break. Gameplay is what you'd expect of any walking simulator (i.e. walking around, talking to people, interacting with objects), with occasional puzzles to solve and other mechanics like drone flying, basic shooting, etc.

The best part of the game - for me - is the graphic design and the music. It's absolutely phenomenal, one of the best I've seen in capturing that futuristic vibe. Sometime I would just stay in my apartment, turn on the music, and just look around thinking 'wow I wish I had an apartment like this'. The interior design in this game is just very atmospheric and aesthetically pleasing.

The story is good but complicated... It's about some family matters that are intertwined with a world-changing conspiracy that has to do with virtual reality. I'd say overall it's a very well-written story with engaging plots and lots of mysteries to discover. The first two hours are pretty boring though, and that's where I almost decided to put this aside. Then after that when the story unfolds, it gets very interesting... until about 6 or 7 hours, which is another point where I almost gave up because there were just too much information presented to you and too many questions unanswered. Fortunately, it's got a great ending that tied everything together and you ended up having to make some difficult choices, which is always good thing in narrative-driven games like this. The epilogue (of my ending at least) is a little too brief... I would like to know more about what the world and my family is like after the finale.

Overall, it's a pretty decent story game that looks and sounds great but just requires a little bit of patience for it to really shine. Recommended.

Daedalic

They are a Hamburg-based video game developer studio who have been active for almost 15 years. Their point-and-click adventure games, such as the Deponia series, are well-known by many. I'm looking forward to their Gollum game (slated for next year) which is probably a big step for such a studio. State of Mind is their first product I laid my hands on just recently.

Story

Welcome to 2048 Berlin! A world increasingly populated by machines; machines that help us in our everyday lives including android assistants that can serve as tutors or be the maid in a household. Not for Richard Nolan, though, our protagonist and journalist who despises all. Following a car accident (shown in the intro) and the tutorial level in the hospital Richard returns home only to find it empty without his wife and kid. Much to this annoyance the family now has its own android. Disregarding anything the robot says Richard sets out to find his loves ones.

Cyberpunk

The setting is great! I love the genre and it reminded me of Deus Ex a couple of times. You know, a world with some great technological inventions, yet, it isn't as utopistic as one would believe. Fans of the Witcher series will immediately accept Richard as he is voiced by none other but Doug Cockle, our very own Geralt of Rivia.

Later on we are introduced to Adam Nolan. His apartment is elsewhere but its layout is exactly the same as that of Richard. The question is why. He has his child with him but he needs to be taken to the hospital regularly and his wife is also absent due to work. What is shown as dark and foreboding in Richard's world it is perfectly paralleled by Adam's location: the colours are vivid and everybody seems to be happy. Even the office buildings (their place of work) seem to oppose one another: while Richard is given the sack Adam receives a promotion (yet, upon entry he doesn't even know the girl's name who has just given him a compliment).

Gameplay

We control Richard and Adam from the 3rd person in an extremely linear way. While almost everything in the world can be scanned and interacted with to a certain degree it is really just one option we have to make the story progress. There are several locations but these are relatively small and there are many we return to. Things get a little bit more interesting when the two protagonists meet and the holo pin board in their study allows us to switch between them on the go.

There is no combat or QTE sequence here. It is impossible to fail the game and in case you got stuck in a new location remember to go through your contacts as you might have missed a message or a call from someone. I found the low-poly art very appealing and making progress throughout the chapters felt like watching a TV series. Too bad that I binge-watched it - the writing is not the strongest side of the game and as it slows down after a couple of chapters you have to have patience to get that extra momentum to be able to proceed.

Summary

State of Mind is a good game. Not a great one but an interesting one indeed. Its narrative is somewhat mediocre but the setting (and the music!) is superb. We also get two very satisfying endings. Overall, a walkthrough takes roughly 9 hours to complete which is decent. I didn't feel like jumping in once more, though, so for the missing 'cheevos I went with the chapter selection.

It's the year 2048. You awake in a hospital. Your memory of the last few days is fuzzy and you can't recall how you got here. There was an explosion and an accident in a cabin car.

After being discharged by the doctor you return home. But your wife and your son are not there. Instead, a Bot 5, a modern robot, awaits you, even though Tracy, your wife, knows exactly how old-fashioned you are and that you hate robots.

When your wife and son don't return the next day you start to worry and begin to investigate where they might be. This search triggers a series of events and confronts you with numerous questions about our future, which repeatedly leads to new twists and surprises.

As to be expected from a point and click adventure, the gameplay in 'State Of Mind' is straightforward and banal. The number of possible interaction object is limited but perfectly sufficient to carry on the story. And this game is all about the story.

The story confronts you with numerous aspects of a dystopian cyberpunk future. While the emphasis lies on transhumanism the story also deals with ubiquitous surveillance, virtual worlds, life on Mars, freedom of robots, virtual sex, and the abuse through virtual sex, autonomous transport, and the replacement of humans by drones and androids in a completely networked world.

The story, in particular, is especially exciting when you understand that this game is essentially neither a conspiracy thriller nor a confrontation with transhumanism. After a few hours, the whole game turns out to be a real family drama, so that the main playing time is devoted to deciphering the private events that have led to the current situation.

The story also raises the question of what happens when the family does not even necessarily consist of living things. 'State of Mind' finds some amazing answers to this.

In my opinion, the story is a masterpiece. It's simply incredibly smart and I probably never played a game as unpredictable as this one.

That said, this game is probably not for everyone. You need to be willing to immerse yourself in the story. Impatient players, skipping answers to move forward quickly, will surely not be satisfied with this game. The patient listener, however, will experiment with different decisions to explore in which way the story changes and will surely be satisfied with the different outcomes.

Pros:
- an incredibly smart, deep, intriguing and complex story
- nice graphics with a very unique graphic style
- good music
- very realistic dialogues
- very authentic world
- extremely realistic characters
- perfect animations
- very good voice acting
- perfect camera work
- completely unpredictable story until the very end
- interesting mini-games and puzzles
- a work of art
- fantastic cyberpunk atmosphere
- chapters can be re-played after finishing the game to collect missed achievements

Cons:
- only automatic savepoints
- at one point I was no longer able to move and had to reload the latest safe point (only happened once)
- a few stupid achievements, like lingering in a certain area for 25 minutes

6/10

This would be perfect as a Short Animation, Motion picture.

Beautiful Artwork (This is the games saviour) Horrible Gameplay, Story feels sooo slow at times, puzzles start good but then get annoying. Sometimes you don't understand what you have to do, not intuitive, noticed they wanted to create immersion with no HUD but that bleeded an already bad gameplay unfortunatly.

It feels you're just walking from cutscene to cutscene, one of those games that you're not the player you just participate like a point click with bad gameplay, horrible controls.

i wanted to like this game and i'm almost angry but dont wanna be rude to the devs but i stopped at the Dome entrance and got frustraded because didnt manage to call Henry to pass through the vents, seemed a bug to me. Saw the rest of the story online.

oh man saw myself wanting to end the fn game just to get rid of it... that's not good. But hey...that is me!

This game for it's price is kinda offensive to any player. This game should be 10 euros at best.

State of Mind won’t be for everyone but it is fantastic when it sticks to it’s strengths. It has a very good story; good graphics; a great world and great characters. It’s puzzles are where it falls short. Daedalic Entertainment is know for it’s 2D Point and Click games but this is the first third person game I have seen them do so maybe it just couldn’t make it’s puzzles translate over genres. Luckily the majority of the puzzles aren’t bad or even difficult. It has 2 puzzles I disliked but they weren’t difficult so much as they were tedious. The story as mentioned was one of the strong points as you try to piece together your past in order to find your family. One thing I will say is few games have made me dislike the main character as much of State of Mind made me dislike Richard Nolan. I have played as characters that cut old ladies throats for a few coins and I found more I liked about them then I did Richard. I’m not sure if this was intentional or not, if it was then bravo I say. He was just a child like man who spends more time looking for his family then he asks why he is doing it or if he even deserves them. He treats his friends poorly; never accepts blame; is just an all around dbag. The only times he showed a little humility or kindness was the few times I was allowed to choose a dialogue choice that gave that to him. Again, if intentional then that is well done. The dialogue is well done and the choices at least give me the feeling of having decent control over most of the story. The characters were interesting and made me want to get to know them better. Lydia was not only my favourite but had a very memorable scene where you take control of her as a VR cam-girl for a scene. It was genuinely creepy like few other scenes in games. The graphics has a great style to them that was like a mishmash of cell shaded graphics and realism. The people and clothing were mainly cell shaded but the world detail was mainly in a realistic style and it made for an interesting blend. The world detail was very good as homes felt lived in and the city felt alive usually. In particular the rain soaked sidewalks of Queens New York was fantastic. The voice acting was also well done.

I played State of Mind on Linux. It never crashed on me. I used version 1.2 of the game. It did have one glitch one time where an NPC blocked me into a desk and I couldn’t move away. I had to reload the save and stand further from her when I spoke to her. Another issue was the audio at points got low for a few seconds and then went back to normal. This was always in just one ear of my headphones. It only happened a few times throughout but is an issue anyway. The game uses the Unreal engine. It has a 60 FPS lock that can’t be changed. Alt-Tab worked without issue. There are 4 settings for AA; a Vsync toggle and 4 other graphics options. The performance is usually great sticking to 60 FPS but there are points where I experienced drops in frame rate for 1-2 seconds. It could drop to anywhere from the 20’s to 4 FPS. This was random and brief. I noticed the GPU usage was frequently all over the place going from 99 to 60 to 0 to 4, etc. The game uses OpenGL. The game uses an auto save system but they’re pretty frequent.

Disk Space Used: 19.56 GB
GPU Usage: 0-99 %
VRAM Usage: 1.23-1.89 GB
RAM Usage: 3.2-6.3 GB
Frame Rate: 4-60 FPS
Settings Used: All Epic; motion blur and Vsync off @ 1920x1080

I paid $42.18 CAD for this and feel it is worth every penny. I finished it in 9 hours and 48 minutes. Some people will probably say that there is not enough “game play” to State of Mind but I find that the story is so strong I don’t mind plus I like games in this genre anyway. There are light puzzles throughout but no combat or action. The dialogue and choices are the main draw. If you enjoy walking simulators or story driven games in general there is a lot here for you. If you enjoy puzzles mainly then you still may like it.

My Score: 9/10

My System:

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X | 16GB DDR4-3000 CL15 | MSI RX 5700 XT 8GB Gaming X | Mesa 20.0.4 | Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB | Manjaro 19.0.2 | Mate 1.24 | Kernel 5.6.3-2-MANJARO

This game is an exciting futuristic game that sinks into humanism. This game explores the themes of separation, non-disintegration and reconnection, in a world torn between a dual material reality of fashion and a virtual future of the utopia. The story of the game is really great, but the rest is really awful. 7/5 Score was really good for this game.

State of Mind is an absolute hidden gem of an adventure game. There's a terrific sci-fi story which had me guessing for quite a while how it was going to play out and it explores some interesting angles on the future of mankind and transhumanist ethics. Also, bonus points for a lead character who you can root for even though he's a bit of a scumbag, not the shining knight in neon armour.

Not much more than a walking simulator with some very very clunky mini games thrown in. The plot has a lot of good ideas that don't go anywhere and the main character is genuinely unlikable. Most of your choices have no impact on the game at all.

This game isn’t a bad game but it’s not a good game either. As an adventure game, it mostly depends on its story. However, story is pretty dull; it is just a mixture of some science-fiction themes without depth. Also, there is nothing original in the game in that aspect. Other than that, there are some choices just for the sake of it. Moreover, there is almost no gameplay; there are only a couple mini games to play. Although, music variety in the game is pretty good (even though it is not exactly integrated into the game other than playing it manually) and art style is pretty decent. So, it is not a horrible game, it is just plain.

This Reality Cuts Like a Knife

„My heart is on fire
My strength in vain
I'm no more inspired
to live pain again
I feel waves of tears
crunching over my chest
breathless, I fall on ground
I don't want to doubt the life
Now I do cause reality cuts me like a knife
I don't want to doubt the life
but now I do…
now I do cause reality cuts me like a knife…

I thought a little money
Could make my day
I did not have any
Time to go down and brave
Now I need to gather all my strength
And struggle against the life,
I've got too tired
I don't want to doubt tonight
now I do cause reality cuts me like a knife…
I don't want to doubt tonight…
now I do cause reality cuts me like a knife
I don't want to doubt the life
but now I do...

State of Mind was a massive surprise for me. It presented this amazing futuristic world of so many possibilities - utterly squandered by its people, and what becomes of things when that kind of outcome presents itself. Characters are very reflective of the humanity we see today. For all the possibility, entertainment, ease of life appliances and tools, and even love they are given - it is just never enough, nobody is satisfied. Richard as a main character is flawed as they come. He wants to find his son, who has mysteriously left with his wife - only, not out of love but because he sees him as a possession that he is unwilling to let his wife have. There is no real 'hero' here, Richard is merely a reflection of the selfish and jealous egotistical tendencies we all possess. Sadly, it seems, even bots and synthetic life seem to have a better grasp on right and wrong then the humans.

For a 'story' game, it is really good. There is no horror, this is more like a old LucasArt game mixed with a walking simulator. So, think Broken Sword or Gabriel Knight and if those ring a bell, you'll know what you are in for. Personally, I'm open to these sorts of games and I loved every moment of this. Voice acting is spot on, the art style is INSANE and so original. I don't think I'm ever going to forget how emotive and effective these triangular characters were.

Not once did I encounter a glitch, nor a graphical error. The only issue I had is that you can skip certain character interactions and events if you play all the Data Fragments in order. So, I blasted through Adams bit and I missed some interactions with Lydia and Richard. This just means I'll have to replay it down the road and make different choices, which isn't anything I'm mad about.

Highly recommended.

TL:DR, pretty much the somewhat interesting story does not make up for how boring the game is

I had a hard time getting myself to play this entire game. I eventually did, and I have to share my thoughts. Do not buy this game, even if on sale. The story is somewhat interesting, but that does not make up for how boring the rest of the game is. The gameplay is actually dreadfully boring the entire time. The graphics (although supposed to look that way) do not look very goo at all, the voice acting is subpar, and the movement mechanics are out of date and hurt the game even more.

Quite a deep story line, Black Mirror-esque in ways, with choices to be made along the way.
Some neat puzzles you have to piece together as you go.
Has some replay value as there are some different choices you can make, the main story line is almost 8hrs of play time.
Have to say I was quite impressed by the lighting and reflections which are pretty impressive without being overly costly, a la HL2 engine but seemed better.
Since this is not a competitive shooter so pretty and 60FPS is a perfectly valid target and it works really well.

Works on Linux which is real nice :)

Minor bugs:
- Movement out of line with mouse position/character models forcing you to rotate 360 (keys or mouse).
- NPC actors blocking doorways can lead you to getting stuck, simply have to reload.
- Slightly unintuitive mechanics for a couple of the puzzles that seemed to lack sense.
- Broken camera visibility checks, I mean, there was a whole wall in the way so clearly some minor shortcuts taken but didn't break the overall game.

The bizarre child of Heavy Rain, Deus Ex, and the Matrix.

For what it is, this game is a unique and interesting experience. At the core of State of Mind is this indelible sense of escapism. There's a fair amount of exploration in what it means to escape, and the cyberpunk setting is perfect for this.

So enter into the mean streets of cy-Berlin, where any human you meet has two robot butlers and a 86% chance of being on several uncontrolled substances. Fear not, however. Local autonomous law enforcement keeps our streets free of crime and disease, I guess. And hey, at the end of the day, you still got to keep up with your snazzy job at a local propaganda- I mean news agency.

Honestly if there was one defining feature of this game, it would be the graphics. The angular, polygonal style of visuals enforces a rigid, unnatural atmosphere to the game; not unlike booting up Bubsy 3D. This is accentuated by moody lighting, like really moody, and music that can be ominous, or industrial, or mellow.

So what else. The gameplay is basic, and more or less if you're paying attention the game will tell you what to do and where to go. There's a small suite of puzzles peppered throughout the game like little reeces pieces; and these are interesting enough. But the real weight of the game is undoubtedly behind the theming.

How much you'll like this game is going to be dependent on how much you enjoy exploring futuristic, or not so futuristic, moral quandaries. Is it better to escape into the great beyond? Is it better to invent heaven if there is none? And what if the illusion of freedom is just as terrifying as the reality left behind? This game does a good job exploring these ideas through multiple different viewpoints.

What I didn't appreciate were the characters. Several major and minor characters pop in and out of the plot like cyber-musical chairs. The characters I ultimately got to spend the majority of the time with were complex enough to be interesting, but not interesting enough to be enjoyable. It makes the plot a little muddy when so many ill managed intentions pile onto each other. I ended up liking the out-and-out evil characters more, since, you know, at least they were straight forward with what they wanted and why.

This all kind of sputters together towards the ending, which is a thing. For better or worse, this game feels like its own unique experience. There are a few more minor nitpicks, like how moody_piano_notes.wav feels pretty overused by endgame, or how I had to look up a walkthrough twice; once for a scavenger hunt, and another for a location I couldn't find. Otherwise, I can't blame this game for much. It does what it sets out to do, and ultimately delivers an interesting cyber-experience.

I played through this with two friends watching. We all hated it. I couldn't find the key to punch anyone, but honestly, the main character ended up being the only one I wanted to punch every few seconds. The voice acting by the supporting cast is decent, but most of it is dry/dull and the characters have no personality. The game is bland and shows you the same 5 or 6 areas over and over with little to no measurable direction, but any time you end up where you are supposed to be you're dumped into a garbage, meaningless cutscene for 3 to 5 minutes. None of your choices really matter except maybe 3 or 4 at the end and they don't change anything except the achievements you get. 90% of the game is walking around middle clicking to read fluff text that is half sarcastic and half pointless. Don't buy this game and if you end up with it from a Humble Bundle or something like I did, just don't bother installing it.

Only gift/buy this for your enemies.

A tad sterile narrative adventure by the guy who brought The Moment Of Silence and Overclocked (and Mystery Of The Druids, but better forget that one) now hired by Daedalic. It felt to me like a sequel of The Moment Of Silence but without puzzles and without much of its urgency and emotion. Streamlined, beautiful, just a bit short of reaching the full depth it pretends to touch.

This is a neat little game. I had forgot about. You are a dad. Given binary choices. The story is fun and dark, depending on your actions. Great atmosphere, characters and music. An interesting niche type of game. Worth a try.

Mainly just a walking simulator with a few basic minigames shuffled in. Honestly the game is only really for the story so if you are in to that, it might be for you. Me personally it wasn't that interesting.

State of Mind is a beautifully crafted artistic masterpiece.
With stunning cinematic scenes, a fantastic story, and a well written character development within the story.
For me, this title has to be one of the best story driven games i have ever played.

The bond between all of the main characters is done so well, and the voice acting on top of that fact couldn't have been done any better. I would really hope to see more in the future based on the characters with either a sequel or prequel that dives deeper into some of the other characters storylines.

I could even see this game work as a live action film, the story is just pure awesomeness.

10/10.

It's a decent sci-fi walking simulator. As a fan of cyberpunk genre, I'm glad I played it as I loved the atmosphere, world building and story. The low poly design gives the game nice and unique feel. However, gameplay does feel like a chore most of time time - sluggish character control, a LOT of unskippable cutscenes and dialogue, a few tedious puzzles and a very repetitive soundtrack.
I recommend it if you're a fan of the genre, and can bear with dull gameplay in return for some nice cyberpunk aesthetics.

A really intriguing, well written medium length game with a great story line and a hint of foreshadowing with regards to our increasing dependence upon machines and electronics.

The characters are decent and the voice acting is pretty good, nothing outstanding to either of those though. The graphic style of the game is old school but strangely very fitting to the digital/electronic theme of the game.

The story line is great. It grips you and intrigues you all the way through. This game is also filled with choices, most of which actually make a difference or at the very least make you feel that way. A few of said choices are very important and actually make you really question what you want. The ending is fantastic, no spoilers from me there though.

A few downsides, most notably the movement. Its really clunky and jagged, you get caught up moving directions you didnt want to even when looking the other way, you then have to stop completely, re orient yourself and start moving again. The other downside is that in terms of what to interact with and where to go, it is very linear offering almost no exploration and little doubt about where you need to be as big green triangles are pointing you everywhere.

The achievements are decent enough offering some trickier ones and some for just completing scenes.

All in all a great game, definitely recommended even at full price.

It tries to stuff too many ideas into one story, and everyone in it is thoroughly unlikeable (particularly the protagonist) but the ideas are interesting, the voice acting is great, and the dialogue (and there is lots of it) is well written. Also, the backgrounds are gorgeous. I didn't much care for the deliberately low poly models but whatever. Worth a look for an adventure gamer who likes The Matrix, 13th Floor, etc.

I was looking forward to playing this game since the themes sounded interesting, but honestly it wasn't really worth it. It's not bad per se, and I'm sure many people would like it, but for me there were too many faults to enjoy it. The story took quite a while to get me interested in it. The premise is that the main character is looking for his missing wife and son. Presumably you're supposed to empathize with him. This is made much more difficult due to the fact that he's... not very likeable. This doesn't even seem to serve a story purpose as far as I can tell.

Pros:
- The story isn't bad once you finally get into it
- Well voice acted

Cons:
- I didn't find either of the endings particularly satisfying
- I wasn't impressed with the graphics. They didn't feel like they were done in a unique style so much as badly dated (at least when it game to people & robots).
- The movement controls were *really* bad. This was the biggest issue for me. If it wasn't for this I probably would have given the game a hesitant thumbs up. Maybe it's better with mouse and keyboard but with a controller it's a nightmare.
- No manual saves, and the autosaves aren't frequent enough. I found myself losing some progress when I resumed playing a few times.
- Unskippable cutscenes. I don't have any issue with this on the first playthrough - for an interactive movie game like this it's a good thing - but they remain unskippable on subsequent playthroughts, which are necessary to get all achievements.
- There are only a few things you can change in the last section of the game, making replay value up until the end pretty non-existent, despite needing to replay it to get all achievements.
- The auto saves appear to remain usable and thus useful for collecting missed achievements, but it seems that under certain circumstances (presumably if you change something significant) future ones get wiped. So if you're planning to use them to get missed achievements, work from the last achievements backwards or you may find yourself needing to replay everything.

Verdict: 5/10

I must say that this game WAS good enough at the beginning (tightly till the middle), but as far as we go... Ugh. No spoilers.
Character development quite weak, controls are super clunky (keyboard or gamepad), story... Not sure. I was expecting deep characters with thoughtful backstory. So-called plot twists - you can read it from miles away. Gameplay - the more you play, the less you get. Not much of a game, but a visual novel. Still this game has it's moments. Visual style, music, voice acting (sometimes), atmosphere and some levels was interesting. Anyways, I think we have the same case over and over again. Starting with the fire, but can't keep up the heat.

[h1]What started as an unbearably boring game, turned out to be a highly exciting and interesting visual novel.[/h1]
As I mentioned, I was very bored with the game at first. This is probably because it only really gets going after an hour. I was about to uninstall the game and never touch it again, but I always give games a chance. Therefore, I continued the adventure. And I am glad I did so.

Gameplaywise, the game is unfortunately very dull. You walk, look around and click on objects. To be honest, it wouldn't have bothered me if the developers had decided to create a pure point and click game, but then probably others would have complained. But honestly, the decision was okay. It didn’t bother me more than that, because this game convinces with its incredibly exciting story. I don't want to spoil anything, but it captivated me and was also convincing with good plot twists. While you enjoy the story, you also must make important decisions. These, and smaller puzzles, make the gameplay more exciting.

Visually, the game clearly has a unique style. I personally didn't find it stunning, but completely legitimate. It was still nice to look at. The soundtrack was also fitting throughout the whole game.

A really great game from the German developer Daedalic Entertainment. I can recommend anyone who craves a relaxing game with a good story to buy this game. A really positive surprise.

pros

+ a unoriginal but cool dystopian story about the consequences of technological advances, well-developed artificial intelligence and the impact of consciousness replication in an interesting futuristic and cyberpunk digital world. there are some similarities with Soma and Observer
+ good looking background graphics
+ decent voice acting
+ two playable main character
+ immersive futuristic, cyberpunk atmosphere and environments
+ simple puzzles and fun mini games
+ nice ambient sounds and atmospheric musics
+ there are steam achievements and cards
+ game quite long
+ game was made by Martin Ganteföhr who creator of the 2004 adventure game The Moment of Silence.

cons

- slow progressing plot drags out during the game and it never comes together cohesively until the game's end and it just drags aimlessly from plot point to plot point. this fact also bloats playing time unnecessarily.
- frequent loading screens
- unlikeable and cliche characters except robot Simon. main character is an irritating jerk who has too many character flaws. side characters are also not much better than protagonist. i also found all characters one dimensional.
- lack of focus to narrative makes the game quite boring
- if you want to solve solid puzzles you re gonna dissapoint
- bad looking character models and stiff character animations
- controls and movements are clunky. sometimes when you talk with a person you get stuck because characters keep stand in front of you and don't move.
- there is no manual saving. only auto save

Overall this is an well made and interesting interactive movie style sci fi game but lack of gameplay elements, slow moving and disjointed plot, unlikeable characters with whom to difficult to connect and empathize and lack of narrative focus makes this game quite tedious. i can say developer's previous game The Moment of Silence characters much more likeable and it's story also way better than this.

[h1]HIDDEN GEM[/h1]

[h1]GAMEPLAY:[/h1]
The game is played through a third-person perspective. There is no combat involved in the game, instead gameplay mostly revolves around interacting with other characters, solving puzzles and doing mini games. Many things in the world can be scanned and interacted with, which gives the player information about items in the world. Players can, for example, interact with photos of the main character Richard's family. The game also focuses on exploring a wide variety of locations.
[h1]STORY:[/h1]
State of Mind unfolds in Berlin in 2048 and revolves around Richard Nolan, a journalist waking up in a hospital after an explosion, finding out that his family is nowhere to be found. Nolan soon realizes that the world has changed and that technology is taking over. The game focuses on the impact that AI and technology have on humans, as well as coming to terms with in what manner super AI- can adapt to human behavior.
[h1]CONCLUSION:[/h1]
Good story game for its price. I think the developers deserve the support.

Zitat:
For more puzzle game reviews, news and everything puzzle-related, follow Puzzle Lovers and check out our Steam group.


the intro of state of mind sets the scene perfectly. we're in berlin, the year is 2048, everything looks crap, neon, chaos and pandemonium everywhere. one of the protagonists, richard, is a journalist for a major publication. he just had an accident, has some memory issues, but his ar chip or whatever remained intact, so no need for a hotspot indicator, everything of interest is highlighted. welcome to the future. richard doesn't come off as somebody to root for, he clearly has family problems, he's anti-robot and pro-side piece.

the other protagonist, adam, was also in an accident, he has a wife and son as well. a much more likeable group, living in a much nicer area called city5, though they have their issues too. it's not all family drama, you'll find the usual themes of robots good or bad, terrorism, etc. sprinkled all over.

great graphics and voice work, it's all very cinematic, lots of cutscenes interrupting the exploration, but there's also less busywork, which I didn't mind. the world is pretty cool, great attention to detail, a bedtime story here, a holo-tv segment there. you can even publish an article by deciding each paragraph's tone, and the more you drink, the more aggressive it gets. most dialog choices don't make a difference and there aren't many puzzles to speak of, they're more like mini-games. I liked or didn't mind most of them, but there were a few annoying ones.

movement can be a bit clunky but controls work well overall and they are rebindable. two sets of keys to walk around, bring up the inventory and navigate menus, plus the mouse for looking around and interacting, though the latter can be done with hotkeys as well. right click to skip dialog sentence by sentence, actual cutscenes can't be skipped. gamepads are also supported, movement speed is decent and there's a sprint button too. I would've liked to zoom out, get the camera off my back, sadly it's not an option.

commendable amount and quality of settings otherwise. separate volume sliders, resolutions, windowed mode, brightness, some graphics settings, optional subtitles and a bunch of languages for them and voiceovers, plus in-game representation of achievements. only autosaving after each scene, but it happens over multiple slots, so much so that not only are 5 autosaves rotated, just in case, but by the end you'll have a bunch of 'story saves', much better than chapter select, which would've meant only 5 jumping-in points. I would've still liked a save & exit option, because without skippable cutscenes continuing the game later meant watching the opening of the current section again.

gotta say, I really enjoyed the whole thing, found it hard to stop playing when I had to, but also didn't want to binge it in two sittings. just enough exploration and fluff to mix up an otherwise linear game without becoming overwhelming, plus a decent story presented really well. it reminded me of omikron: the nomad soul and remember me but without too many shitty arcade/combat sequences. I finished it in about 10 hours, took my time, walked around, read everything, that's the whole point, but it should be doable in 8 hours at a steady pace. without any major issues to speak of, it's an easy recommendation if you want a non-challenging near-future experience.

good game, the story is good and well written (much better at the start of the game tbh). controls are very clunky but bearable. the only negative is that the dialog decision you make have no effect on the story (aside for the vey last two) so there is no push to replay it and even the different dialog options seems to always lead in the same direction even inside one dialog. Is enjoyable overall however
