    A pretty average game, definitely not for everyone. The dialogue and voice acting are monotonous and easily the weakest part of the game, which is disappointing if you're accustomed to the wry and witty dialogue of adventures like The Longest Journey or games by LucasArts and Sierra. There's also a fair number of puzzles involving locks or rearranging levers, if that's your A pretty average game, definitely not for everyone.

There's also a fair number of puzzles involving locks or rearranging levers, if that's your thing. While it does break the mold in some ways, it still feels more like a mid-90's style adventure that takes itself a little too seriously. Expand

    Facial technology impressive, game solid but weak ending.

    Definitely a good game in its genre (Adventure/Quest). Unfortunately it fell under the radar and did not get enough buzz.
    The game is actually based on a very good book, if i am not mistaken, called "The Schrödinger's Cat". The story in the game is pretty twisted and quite deep - i loved it just for the story alone. The main character is good, and the progression well thought through.

    Unfortunately, it ends with a sequence in mind - which never did come.

    This game: Great - slow, deliberate, fun, intriguing....
    Me: highly game experienced.... Executive summary A slow and fun adventure game with the sociological perspective of an academic Turkish women.... this game gives you the pangs for the old days with green phosphorus screens and a z-interpreter.... Results: This story about a cat named Schrodinger is compelling; play

    Me: highly game experienced....

    Executive summary
    A slow and fun adventure game with the sociological perspective of an academic Turkish women.... this game gives you the pangs for the old days with green phosphorus screens and a z-interpreter.... Results: This story about a cat named Schrodinger is compelling; play as a young detective working through a murder case....the game mechanics are pretty good 8/10 and the visuals are good enough for the release date.... Conclusion: I am happy that I played this game.... my HDI has gone up (down) through this experience.... I am a better (more disillusioned) union citizen....
    A must for the adventure gaming fan.

    The story is told from the perspective of a naive member of the UTOPIC union state. Through the story the protagonist discovers the lies of control .... A good adventure game always needs a good story.

    This is a point and click game.... none of the game requires any time sensitive moves....
    The world size is limited and manageable.... The inventory management is slow but not as bad as DeuxEx.

    Story
    The story is well told - it is internally consistent 99.9% of the time....

    Acting
    The lead voice acting is great but the supporting actors are weak.... and forgivable.

    Ambience and music
    Good ! I am happy to say that I turned the music volume up during the game because I liked the choices. Hardware
    I played this on a 3.4 MHz C2DUO (CPU) with a ATI HD 5700 (GPU). Looked beautiful. No issues whatsoever.

    Me age: 47 Total years of gaming: 39 Favorite device now: PC gaming on Steam (227)....
    (also own PS3 (3), XBOX360 (12), Wii (2)) (have owned Colecovision, Nintendo hand helds, Apple II plus, Apple PowerPC, XBOX (32)) Favorite genre is FPS with RPG elements. All game types are appreciated for their perfection, creativity, and novelty.

  1. This is the saga we’ve been waiting for. Thank you Momentum.
  2. What Culpa Innata lacks in terms of innovative gameplay, it makes up for in depth – that is the key to this game.

    There are some strong elements to Culpa Innata, but overall, the excessive amounts of bad dialogue drowns out nearly all of the stronger puzzles clamoring for attention.
