The art of censorship

This is one of those bizarre little indie games that sounds far from enthralling when described in written form but when you actually play it, it turns out to be an extremely addictive and engaging experience. It defies comparison with many other games, but titles such as Papers, Please are the best point of reference, given its depth and underlying aspects of social commentary. The concept here is that you work for a newspaper in a post-war country, and as the editor one of your main jobs is to censor and edit the content of the paper in order to meet with the expectations of your desired audience. The content that you publish affects the nation's opinions regarding various subjects but you've got to remember that you're being watched by the new government as well as the rebels which still lurk out there and which have a lot of influence. You've got a number of employees working under you, each with their own unique personalities so you have to factor them in as well, while the choices you make feed into the overall gameplay experience, creating an adaptive game which has plenty of replay value. This certainly isn't for everyone and if you're just looking for a quick blast, then steer well clear. However, if you want something with a little more depth and which is actually very thought-provoking, then this should be part of your collection. It's fairly simple to get into, but contains a surprising amount of depth and it gets quite compelling as you start to figure out how your choices are affecting the population, while also making you think about the idea of censorship. Thoroughly recommended!
