A minor issue with the game is its technical instability. At the time of this writing, no fewer than three patches (downloadable updates) are available, which fix odd bugs, freezes and crashes. But the fleshed-out story separates "Culpa Innata," which means "original sin," from other computer games of its kind. The Istanbul, Turkey-based developer did a terrific job in providing a fictitious historical timeline leading to the middle of the 21st century, offering plenty of meaningful dialogue, great facial animations, and adding a few "wow" gadgets and special effects to match the futuristic theme. The music is also well done, if not a bit repetitive.

Culpa Innata offers a deep and immersive experience that rewards players for unraveling a complex story, interacting with interesting characters, and solving intelligent puzzles. The game might not single-handedly resurrect the ailing PC adventure genre, but it should serve as a reminder that these once-popular games are still alive and well.
