    This is a unique, and quite frankly ground-breaking conversational adventure and RPG hybrid project set into the ancient India. It is not perfect in everything it strived for, however, Unrest has clearly succeeded in the things it wanted to tell about.

    Unrest offers a gripping story about hope, failure, action and inaction, fear and security, which feels more like an interactive visual novel than an actual game. And a well-written one, at that. Sort of like A Game of Thrones without endlessly waiting for the dragons to come, the game delivers its quick shot of gripping narrative, challenges you to make a couple of life and death decisions, then leaves you boiling in the karmic print of your choices.

    Unrest is a choice-driven RPG with little combat to speak of that touches on relevant social issues.

    Unrest is a short narrative full of ethical dilemmas, presented through the eyes of an unusually diverse cast of RPG characters. Those choices have an isolated impact, but don’t expect them to alter the story to a radical degree.
  6. Unrest is a bold, powerful, and interesting game. I’m just not sure how much fun it is.

    In Unrest, the player is just a spectator. The characters you play cannot change a thing about the world, and it is incredibly disappointing.

    A great choice and consequence game letting you explore a wonderfully constructed world of a city in unrest. Your every word and decisionA great choice and consequence game letting you explore a wonderfully constructed world of a city in unrest. Your every word and decision matters! Unfortunately the game is rather limited in size and scope and the ending ambiguous. Expand
