And free game or not, my time ain't free Asking takes no time ^^

indeed, it is the most valuable commodity of all. that's why i emphasized i thought it was worth the investment of time since money was off the table. i'm honestly surprised your friends' appraisals were so universal, it was generally pretty well received. it's simple and straightforward but engaging. great soundtrack too.

i can't imagine you heard negative things, did you? it was one of the most standout indie titles of 2016 to me personally. it's a brisk playthrough and it has branching endings. very much worth the time investment of at least one play. i bought it full price and regret nothing.

Nearly all of my "steam friends" reviewed this negative. And first review on GoG I saw was too. Hence me asking

And free game or not, my time ain't free Asking takes no time ^^

Tis the season I guess. I can't remember ever seeing so many free titles up around the holidays. That must be the 10th or 11th one I think?

Is it bad that I initially read the headline as "Get Oxycodone for Free"?

Well now we know what you do in your free time...

Worth what? Worth "free"? Is that some kinda trick question d00d?!

Also, the most obvious source for checking on its value would be Steam ratings and it's at 93% positive reviews overall (95% positive reviews recently even).

So I'd recommend reevaluating the credibility of your sources who are telling you it's crap.
