Anamorphine is an emotional tale held back by technical shortcomings. It conveys addiction and mental illness with a beautiful grace and care. It delves into the danger and destruction of both depression and denial. Forced to face your past or be consumed by it.
Anamorphine is a beautiful narrative similar to a movie. Despite it being a game, it is not necessarily entertaining or fun, and I don’t think it chooses to be. Artifact 5 creatively uses the gaming technology as a way to present a story in a visual manner. It is impressive and well developed, with characters you grow to understand and empathize with. While there are issues with the performance of the game, there is definitely room for growth and development for an even better experience.
The whole near-death experience sent me spiraling and to a very negative place. Knowing that my story could have ended like Elena’s is a sobering thought, and it helps me to feel stronger, knowing how that kind of decision would have impacted those closest to me. Anamorphine makes an important distinction by not only exploring the mental illness, but exploring the impacts that it has on those around you.
