Unrest is a role playing adventure game set in a fantasy interpretation of ancient India that adapts to death, failure, and the choices you make.

A compelling story with many outcomes, but the game itself is a little too rough around the edges.

Unrest is an unconventional but erratic adventure game that inspires empathy even as it undercuts its own message.

Unrest doesn't offer much more than playing as characters, having conversations and dictating where their lives are going. It might offer a diversion for a while if you're a fan of character-driven RPGs, but it's unlikely to entice newcomers to the genre.

I wish it were more literary or theatrical in its presentation and style, but perhaps that would distract from the aspects that I admire. A fair few people have reacted to the brevity and lack of resolution by suggesting that the game is unfinished but that doesn't seem to be the case at all. It may be a little rough but Unrest is deliberate in its approach to the idea of playing roles and even though I don't entirely approve, I will defend to the death (or mild shouting) Pyrodactyl's attempt to introduce new elements to the conversation.
