This game is absolutely monochromic. There are not many colours and they are used only to highlight necessary objects. There is not much music as well. Such approach is used to achieve certain atmosphere which is definitely a strong point. You can use your ability to control other people. Thus, you will be able to complete certain tasks. The game has a few alternative endings which depend on thoroughly you explore the game world.
Inside is a mysterious type of game. There are no characters, no dialogues and no explanations. You need to understand what happens on your own. Hardly can we say that it is boring. There is a certain charm in such approach. Nevertheless, the protagonist of the game is a boy in red shirt. He has no name and life story. He simply escapes from unnamed guards. We still see a few people who die in horrible ways when we proceed further but it does not shed any information on the storyline.
