Game release: “Mosaic” (PC)

Krillbite Studio‘s and Raw Fury‘s adventure game Mosaic is a showcase of mundane life and how to break out of it.

Over a year ago I already got to play this game at Gamescom 2018 behind closed doors and I’ve almost forgotten about it since then, even if it seemed to be quite a unique game. The development studio definitely takes its time with its titles, even if they aren’t for everyone. As could be seen with Among the Sleep (see my review), it also doesn’t shy away from mature subject matter.

Mosaic is another contender for an experience that won’t be to everyone’s liking, probably because it’s too close to reality, in this case the monotony and repetitiveness of an office worker’s life in a big city. Calling this an adventure game might give a wrong impression to those who expect puzzles to be solved or dialogues to go through, as the title is completely devoid of either. It’s more about player choices and how to break genre conventions in the most surrealistic way possible, posing the question if one wouldn’t try this oneself and change the morning commute pattern in one’s own life. While the subject matter and often depressing imagery won’t win any corporate company structure fans, it’s still good to have some developers open discussions that others don’t tackle.

The game is out now on PC, and despite not having a launch discount, it’s certainly worth it for a different experience and another way of looking at modern life. It’s telling that there are actually two versions of it to buy, the standard one and a 1% edition which includes the original soundtrack and the 1% DLC.
