    Fiona Nova (formerly of Rooster Teeth, now G4) voices Rani, and that's awesome that she's a highlight in this review

    Yeah! I love to see these chill, not overly long experiences. Perfect for checking out on Game Pass.

    Are the 15 hours spent a typo ? Because other reviews say the game is pretty short, around 4-5 hours.

    Maybe straight through without side missions? Multiple play throughs for Heidi?

    I finished the game in about 3 hours, no side missions. Most of the gameplay is the same again and again : clean up a room, activate some interruptor,... only the few puzzles / platforms sequences are fine. Big disappointment.

    Thanks for the review! Going to check this out over the holidays while it's on GP.
    Looking for a place to happen, making stops along the way.

    Been looking forward to this. Fiona Nova voices the main character, too!

    Been playing today. Not horrible but definitely not an 8/10. Maybe a 6.5/7. It gets pretty repetitive pretty fast.
    Oh you indeed have data caps your just not aware of them.

    Thank you for this review! Based just on the name, I didn't even bother to look at this game and never would have without this review.

    I know this is nitpicky, but the mispronunciation of "solder" and "soldering" is killing the vibe for me 😂. Did no one tell the poor voice actor how it's pronounced?

    So is the only thing you do in this game walking around clearing up the gunk? Sounds like it could get old quickly.
