  • Summary: Meet Nika, a brilliant girl that doesn't fit the world she lives in. Perhaps it's the chocolate shake with a shot of cognac she carries in her backpack which makes her different. Or maybe it's the fact that at 7 years old her favourite things are the transfer of energy, magnetic fields andMeet Nika, a brilliant girl that doesn't fit the world she lives in. Perhaps it's the chocolate shake with a shot of cognac she carries in her backpack which makes her different. Or maybe it's the fact that at 7 years old her favourite things are the transfer of energy, magnetic fields and electrical engineering. But anyway... It doesn't matter if her parents don't listen to her. It doesn't matter if her teacher ignores her. It doesn't matter if her classmates are dorks. Nothing matters anymore because she has a plan to solve everything. A really... odd plan.

    Project MechaNika. Plan for the destruction of all things that aren't awesome.

    I, Nika Allen, 7 years old, am sick to death of this world. My parents don't care about me. My brother never takes any notice of me. At school I never get taught anything useful. There are loads of things that shouldn't exist. It's for these reasons that I've decided to destroy everything that isn't cool. With MechaNika I will destroy and eliminate the things and the people that I don't like. I'll start at home. Then school. This city. The entire world. I'll get rid of everything that's boring and pointless, and this world will be better for it.

    If it's not cool, it will disappear. If you're not cool, hide. MechaNika is here.

    Nika is a fun character and all the other characters in her world are just as lively. The visuals and characters bring the world to life and create a unique place to play the game. Unfortunately, the puzzle mechanics do not match the level of world building.

    The game is good espacially with graphics. The story is well written and the way you interact with the world and the objects in your inventory is really simple and well made. The whole game has soft social criticism and is really dirty, also creepy in some of his parts. The real problem with this game in my opinion is that the game is really short, it's like 2 hours to explore the world in all his parts and complete the game, if you, like me, like to play slow. I made a second run to complete the achievements, i played really fast trying to semi-speedrun and it took only 30 minutes to finish it.
    So the game is short but intense. I didn't really liked the ending, is just a very short animation of what happened next and nothing else. It would have been more interesting if you could actually play and explore more after the ending to see what changed.
    The price also isn't really low, so my advice is to buy it under sales, like really big sales, at least 50%.
    So if you wanna take a easy two hours trip in a dirty/creepy world full of wtf situations, that's the game for you, otherwise I would skip it.

    This game is more bare-bones than Agatha Knife, but its gameplay mechanics feel more streamlined at least. Same sort of angsty story as youThis game is more bare-bones than Agatha Knife, but its gameplay mechanics feel more streamlined at least. Same sort of angsty story as you expect going in. Its okay overall and slightly fun to see Agatha's story continue, but there's nothing good or even interesting enough about this game to make it worth defending when it goes off course.

    Which is to say, there's instances of transphobia which are much more off-putting and pronounced than in Agatha Knife. Given how brief the game is, it is unfortunate that the only thing kind of memorable in this game is the overt and unchallenged transphobia.
