General Information

Available on:PCSep 30, 2021

Developer: Freebird Games

Genres: Adventure, RPG

Impostor Factory is a narrative-driven adventure game that is categorically out of its mind. Dr. Watts and Dr. Rosalene have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live their lives, all the way from the very beginning. But this isn't their story. Probably. Instead, it's about Quincy. Let me tell you a story about him. One day, Quincy was invited to a fancy parteh at a suspiciously secluded mansion. So, he accepted and went; because even though the mansion was suspicious and secluded, it was also fancy and had a parteh. In fact, it turned out to be so fancy that there was a time machine in its bathroom. Quincy could wash his hands and time-travel while he was at it. Talk about a time-saver! But of course, then people start dying, because that's what they do. And somewhere along the way, things get a little Lovecraftian and tentacles are involved. Anyway, that's around 1/3 of what the game is really about. KEY FEATURES A story that will make you curse at the screen A cozy mix between adventure game elements and classic RPG aesthetics Dialogues that read so wrong but feel so right An espresso execution with zero filler and no time drains

Yet another masterpiece by Kan Gao, probably the most solid and balanced overall. The story of Quincy and Lynri passes through regrets, remorse, fears and IF. Gao's writing is always impeccable and is capable of never falling into the banal, even when it touches themes already abused in the medium and in narration in general. So far my very personal best game of the year.

Impostor Factory's emotional story might have a slightly tired formula, but it feels fresh and cinematic, and cheerfully posits that a fake, imaginary life can be as fulfilling as a real one.

‎Impostor Factory teases and deceives, involves and alienates. It doesn't have the destabilizing power of To The Moon, nor the brain balance of Finding Paradise, but that's okay. He tells us about the innumerable emotional stratifications of reality, and he does so by choosing the path of the absurd. A quirk that soon changes its face and changes register several times, in frankly unexpected ways.‎

A fitting finale to a phenomenal trilogy, Impostor Factory explores life with depth and accessibility that respects the audience.
