* FilmNoir: You as player navigate a CityNoir and interact with a colorful cast of character, in the attempt to solve a mystery, while wrestling with heavy existential questions and themes such as the meaning of life, what identity means, and the difference between sanity and madness. Interestingly, the game seems to deliberately try to invoke ''Neo-Noir'', in that the main character is not someone who has experienced the GreatOffscreenWar personally, but rather is member of the generation born after it.

* LastSecondEndingChoice: Downplayed. [[spoiler:The available options in the final choice which determine the ending the player gets is unlocked depending on which actions they have been doing during the game, but they are not mutually exclusive; it is possible to get everything between all choices to only one choice.]]


Added DiffLines:

* StoryBreadcrumbs: Due to the nature of the game, it is quite possible to inadvertently miss certain rather crucial story clues and elements, and in fact some choices are deliberately constructed to inform the player on one part of the story while leaving out others. This encourages multiple playthroughs, if the player wants to fill out all the gaps and get the full picture on certain things, especially regarding several subplots and the full story about the main character's DarkAndTroubledPast.
