WHAT IS IT?

A cajun/VHS-inspired neo-noir detective mystery dripping with an '80s aesthetic and bridging spirituality with decades-old technology.


It's not as heavy-handed with the "noir" genre as Sin City or Drive. Think Matt Fraction's version of Hawkeye, but with no memory, dropped into Chinatown, except instead, it's Louisiana's bayou.


In some ways, it also reminds me of Resident Evil 4, with its lonely quiet, its feeling of a whole country out to get you, and its natural or more citified environments.


WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

Clay woke up 9 months ago with no memory of who he is or how he got to the strange city he's in.
