    It looks like a prototype in need of development and moving to a real engine. [03/2014, p.81]

It felt like it's going to require doing a lot of chores to maintain the space station, but I was glad to discover that this isn't what the game is about. It has an actual story, and it picks up from there. I was also surprised by the ending which is always a plus.

    Compared to other "walking simulators", I enjoyed Verde Station more than Gone Home. It simply offers a lot more interactivity and a better story. It wasn't as amusing as The Stanley Parable, and wasn't as atmospheric as Dear Esther, but all in all I would rank it between these two in terms of overall enjoyment.

    Some people complain that Verde Station is short, but for $1 (on sale) there's more than enough content. Definitely better bang for the buck than any of the aforementioned games. Recommended!

My review will be as spoiler-free as possible.

    In Verde Station you play the role of someone who is set to spend a year alone maintaining parts of the space station. You can interact via terminals, and there is some communication - but for the most part you are on your own. The experience itself is about more than just maintaining the station, but about how you experience events over time. I won't go into it more than that, but it's open to interpretation as to what exactly is going on.

    Again, I just finished my first play through, and my first theory as to what was going on was apparently wrong. I expect to play through again to pick up some other things. If you like walking sims, this is worth your time. My first playthrough was about 2 hours, and I play slowly trying to pick up all the clues/hints. It's an interesting environment, with the only drawback to me being the largely ambiguous way you can interpret much of the story/events. In the forums on steam the developer is active, which is cool for reading thoughts after playing.
