    Should be free game or a demo. Completed it within a couple of hours.
    Its an interesting concept and displays the banal world of 80's political tension and in-house beurocracy quite well.

    It is a great game. Wonderful atmosphere and story - BUT: It has a lot of bugs, crashes and translation issues on my PS4. It is a real shame because it could be an 9/10 game for me but the technical issues are destroying any real fun while playing it.

    The Occupation, albeit at times coarse and overly eager to test your basic motor reflexes, enthralls with dozens of small details, nuanced environments, choice-based gameplay and good audio.

    A great idea executed in a mediocre way. If you can deal with the lack of polish, there is an interesting game here.

    The Occupation presents a hidden gem of the investigative puzzle genre, with it’s approach to gameplay and storytelling. Despite its annoying bugs and huge technical problems, with certain fixes on that part, it presents itself as near-masterpiece of an experience.
