While there are points of improvement that can make the game run a little smoother, the game is undeniably charming with its memorable characters and remarkable story. The Red Strings Club is a meaningful journey for mature audiences that can teach us a thing or two about morals. It is a game with lessons to be learned and stories to be shared, as we too have important decisions to make in our own lives.

Even though The Red Strings Club is in a pixelated genre which is oversaturated, the story all but makes up for it. I would recommend this despite its controls for anyone on a budget looking for a great story-telling game, and for all sci-fi/cyberpunk fans.

Its art and design feel pretty much brilliantly realised, and leave you wanting to see more of the Red Strings’ world. It’s not perfect, and is slightly hobbled by a slightly imperfect port to the Switch, but it is an indie darling if ever I saw one, and it is one that’ll have a huge fan following. For those who love indie point and click titles but want something a little different, then The Red Strings Club is a must.

The Red Strings Club is a quick and enjoyable experience. It’s one of those games that you don’t want to put down until you know how it ends. However, there are issues with pacing that perhaps could have taken more attention to detail. If you like a good quality point and click adventure, then this may well be a game for you.

At last call, I decided to order a scotch on the rocks. I wanted something that would linger on the palette much like how I’ve been thinking about The Red Strings Club since finishing it. The memorable characters and familiar cyberpunk story of a mega corporation attempting to “fix” humanity make Red Strings an enjoyable ride. The gameplay sections are largely forgettable and serve more as distractions with just a dash of purpose.

The Red Strings Club tells a brilliant cyberpunk tale that's full of big ideas and tough moral questions. Its gameplay sections are a little too flimsy and repetitive to keep pace, but you'll want to play through this memorable adventure nonetheless.

The Red Strings Club is a brilliantly written thriller in the same vein as Deconstructeam's previous hit Gods Will Be Watching. It's tense, deft in delivering on its themes and ideas and though it's far shorter than I expected it to be, I would greedily drink up more time in this world and with these characters if it were afforded in a sequel. I champion this as the very best product to come out of the cyberpunk resurgence so far, it's just a shame it under-stays its welcome.

Sentirte parte de la historia que narra, ¡tomar partido en ella!, es una de las mayores virtudes de The Red Strings Club, una gran aventura narrativa que te enfrentará a difíciles decisiones morales que, incluso una vez completada la partida, seguirán ahí, haciéndote pensar, llevándote a cuestionar tu forma de ver el mundo. No es fácil; y es así como el estudio español Deconstructeam denota gran talento dando forma a un videojuego que sí, ofrece poco reto a nivel jugable, pero resulta apasionante en lo argumental.
