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 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.

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.
