This year has seen quite a few games framed around investigations. Among them are Judgment, AI: The Somnium Files, and Astral Chain. Six and Jen sit down to talk about these games in-depth, and about investigation mechanics in 2019 games. Spoiler levels vary: fairly non-specific spoilers for AI, structural/plot pacing spoilers for Judgment, and fairly thorough spoilers for Astral Chain. Oh! And Evangelion. We sorta spoil Evangelion XD I think our conversation wouldn’t take your enjoyment of any of these games or the show away, but please be warned.
