Interesting and evocative but dense and low-interactivity, June 21, 2017

Very interesting, but hard to get through. There's a lot of text and rather low interactivity,
interesting mechanics that are not well-explained or easily understandable, and a pretense of stats that aren't transparent in value or use. There's a focus on anachronisms which could be interesting but is unexplained at least as far as I got (and some anachronisms are not counted, e.g. (Spoiler - click to show)the prisoner's dilemma). All in all, I was interested in the ideas but each time I thought that plot was going to happen I instead found another digression with lots of dense text and unclear relation to the main plot, so eventually I gave up.
