A great game with an even better mystery at it's helm
I'm really surprised how many radars this flew under. The sound design, art style, writing, and characters are all brilliantly done. The mystery that surrounds the game is smart, intriguing, and has a great pay-off if you're patient.
Anyways, if you're cautious about having your kids play this, I'll sum it up for you. There's a good and a bad path, with the former bringing up good messages and morals about friendship and the such. There is very little profanity (from what I played), but it does show up... just, not in large chunks. There are also sexual references, but none of them are too graphic or go on for longer than they should, and are passable if your kid is mature enough to understand them. There are also some drug references (as one of the characters is a stoner who eats brownies laced with marijuana and is effected by them), but, much like the sexual references, none of them are very graphic. There are also references to things like stealing cars and driving drunk. The player can also choose to drink alcohol in the beginning of the game, though it has no visible or minor effect, so it can be ignored. The game is great if you or your kid(s) like games with good stories and decision making, though be weary that this almost completely overshadows the game-play. Just remember: though nothing is too graphic, if you are mixed on references to sex, drugs, and drinking - no matter the level at which the references go to - you might want to think twice.
