A solid sci-fi soundtrack, complemented by strong voice acting, and the ability to sit at a piano in your apartment and enjoy your very own cacophonous noodlings. Marvellous.
Adopting a low poly style with somewhat more realistic environments seems incongruous, but it helps engender a sense of dreamlike weirdness, which in a world where all is not as it seems, works well. Character models look very odd, though, a bit like that Dire Straits music video.
Character movement is a bit 'off' and interactions are fairly basic, but for the most part, State of Mind plays as well as an adventure game like this needs to. Solid.
Puzzles exist at the more basic end of the spectrum – albeit with the occasional mild head-scratcher – so you'll mostly be following the narrative in a prescribed manner, although there are parts of the game where you can choose which character to play as, and what order to do things in.
With branching paths through the story, State of Mind's list inevitably demands multiple playthroughs. There's no chapter select, unfortunately, but the game does create multiple autosaves throughout that you can load up at any time. A decent list, all in all.
