Description: Katie, at it’s core, is a game about understanding. About talking, dwelling, thinking. Walk around, speak to people, explore the town, uncover secrets (if that’s your thing), and listen to Katie. Written during a time of immense personal transition, Katie is a casual yet vulnerable reflection on friendship, dealing with loss, and the pursuit of meaning in the midst of chaos. It’s an expression of mind laid bare in a vicarious manner, and a narrative of a life on the verge of sanity.

Review: Katie reminds me a lot of the 2D style of PaRappa the Rapper, only without the rapping. But this is more of a narrative-based story in which you will be talking to a lot of people and learning their story and also learning a bit about the game’s character herself. I get that the 2D art style and text-based discussions are not going to be for everyone, in fact, reading a lot of the text in my VR headsets was difficult. But if you fancy something arty, something out there this is worth a look, but I am aware most people will not find any enjoyment here at all.
