Critic Reviews for Save Koch

As it is, I feel like I have to genuinely and methodically take notes of where each failure lies so as not to do it again, barring the fact that a mole and mastermind, or a grapple with a persnickety UI, won’t heck up my plans anyways. Save Koch is impressive in the weight of its narrative choices, but a little cushioning could have gone a long way in making unraveling its mystery more enticing.

Save Koch is a complex and surprisingly hardcore simulation game with a noir theme, but there a few too many fail states and it's too repetitive to be truly enjoyable

While it has a nice premise and ambitious goals with its social deduction, several frustrating problems drag down Save Koch.

Save Koch on the Nintendo Switch has some promising elements and indeed, the game's world is an interesting one and its dialogues are quite amusing. Nonetheless, the way the game is played turns out to be disappointing, mostly because there's no sense of orientation - Save Koch does a poor job when it comes to transmitting what is expected of the players, and the missions' sense of arbitrary order and a basis of trial and error make this game a somewhat clumsy experience.

Save Koch is an absorbing story with well-written characters and a genuinely engaging mystery.

If the idea of a game that lets you poke around and learn everything on your own, you’ll have some fun with Save Koch‘s wacky, hectic world. There’s a lot to like if you have the patience to figure it out. But if you prefer your sim games with clear instructions, then you’d better pass on this one.

Save Koch is definitely a unique indie game to keep an eye on with its intense procedurally generated mystery-based campaign.

Despite the minimal interaction possibilities, the game has a certain depth. But it is only recommended to people who speak a secure English. You just do not have enough time to think about the many puns.
