Replay Value: High
What is Oneshot?
In the game, you play as a young cat-boy-neko-thing, searching for the explanation as to not only where he is, but also why he was deemed the savior of the world that he'd mysteriously stumbled into. Not only did the story pull at my heart throughout the game, but the puzzle gameplay really got me too. At some points my mind was completely blown by the way that it interacts with the player, much more creatively than any game I'd ever seen before.
Strangely Fantastic Gameplay
Oneshot included so many puzzle types that I'd never thought about or even seen in any other game. Although most of the puzzles had to do with collecting items and adding them to your inventory (similar to what you'd see in any other RPG Maker game), the puzzles were odd. The designer obviously focused greatly on playing with every single thing they could to make the puzzles difficult for the player, this includes puzzles that literally interact with the player's computer.
And one odd thing to top all this off: You play as God. The characters in the game act like you're a physical being, and as if you're merely aiding them in the game. You make the choices when it comes to this world, not because you play as the main character, but because you play as God.
This is one of those games that really pull the player in, and by that I mean that you're actually in it. Who can pass that up?
The games soundtrack is probably one of the best things about it. It's a collection of very otherworldly retro-esque tunes that really catch the player. The tunes are so interesting, that I personally bought the album just out of appreciation for the artist and game as a whole.
The music is nothing to laugh out, and something that strongly dictates the feel of the game. It definitely makes you feel like you're lost in a mysterious world that is slowly being ripped apart and only you can save it, it's brilliant!
