DON’T GIVE UP is the comedic story of Tris, a cynical asocial game developer living in the town of Threeson who’s more concerned with flirting than figuring out where he’s next meal is coming from. You'll balance the hilarious tragedy that is your social life while facing off with the phantoms of your inner conscious and a mysterious cast of characters. This game takes place 4 years after the events of Tris’s mental breakdown as his inner demons seek once again to consume his mind and unleash a plague of apathy and despair.

Even as an extremely linear experience, DON’T GIVE UP: A Cynical Tale feels empty. The act of walking makes up a sizeable chunk of the gameplay. Even a scant few puzzle sections and an entertaining soundtrack can’t make that fun. A New Game + mode is available but being so linear, it’s tough to imagine ever wanting to retread this path.

The fun combat and dialogue aren’t fun enough to make DON’T GIVE UP: A Cynical Tale stand out. It’s difficult not to compare a game that looks like this to Undertale, but even throwing that comparison out the window, this adventure is lacking.
