Not even in the darkest fantasies of Whales Interactive could the studio have imagined a better setting to launch its interactive film.
What better time to swallow a story about a small group of people locked within four walls with a biological weapon stalking? Yes I know. Now that you can't go to the cinema to see Mulan, it might not be far-fetched to put yourself in the shoes of Dr. Amy to spend the morning trapped in a laboratory with a couple of cretins, with your ex and with an infected high school – through whose fault you are in there-, while you make video conferences with your boss and try to find a means of escape. Tremendous dystopia.
Do you have good command of English? Good, because the movie is in that language. That you have good eyesight and do you prefer Spanish? Perfect, because you can activate some tiny Subtitle in Spanish too. And I recommend you watch the movie in one go so as not to lose track of this measured experience and because the game automatically saves when you feel like it.
Also, taking advantage, I would almost invite you to play as a family, fighting to see which route to choose at any time or exchanging command on the second or third viewing. Because yes, history has nine finals and several minor ramifications. Advantage: once the first game is over, you can skip the scenes that you had already seen –something very necessary and very logical in this type of adventure that was missing in previous works of the company-. Disadvantage
But if after all you prefer to play solo you will also get a good experience in portable mode thanks to the touch controls.
Up to the task
Judging it individually and in this context we could concede that it has a story entertaining enough to, at least, have a laugh, with a time-price ratio equivalent to that cinema ticket that you are going to save and with the incentive of reinforced replayability for the fact of being able to skip scenes. Comparing it with The Shapeshifting Detective

Other titles you refer me to
- For those who have Netflix, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch It is the platform's commitment to interactive films and manages to achieve a result very similar to the works of Whales Interactive.
- These days are ideal -or fatal- to see movies like Outbreak (1995) and Contagion (2011).
