Should I get it?

I wonder if it will be in favour of libertarian socialism or a completely decontextualised porky screed. The description says it will try to 'tackle the issues of 2020' so that sounds like a winner.

Gonna take a completely blind guess that the author thinks the pressing issues of 2020 are political correctness and riots, and that naturally this is exactly the same as Stalinism.
Is there anything more midwit than using Orwell to discuss politics? Christ.

That just looks like a contemporary western style to me, though granted there has been a heavy Japanese influence.

Why would it be? The game is based on an anti-communist book

Figures. The fact they had the persmission of the Orwell estate just makes it more damning.

I pirated it and tried to play, but all three times I played it Snowball was exiled from the farm by Napoleon after proposing the windmill and things deteriorated from there. Also, the game basically portrays all of the pigs as pretty hypocritical and malevolent, rather than having Snowball as a 'counterweight' and basically gives the impression that animal farm sucks and it was better when the farmers ran things. I'm sure it's possible to win but after 2.5 plays I don't really wanna put in the effort to do more. It's also VERY repetitive. Overall, a 4/10.

post I was replying to

> Imre Jele – Project Founder

>“Animal Farm is a literary masterpiece which uses deceptively simple language to accurately describe the downfall of communism from the dream of equality into totalitarian oppression. The fate of the farm was all too real for me growing up in totalitarian Hungary.
> “History seems to repeat itself. And once more, Orwell’s classic has become a painfully relevant warning as some Western democracies started using tools and language eerily similar to those of oppressive regimes of the past.
> “I’ve long wanted to explore how, through video gaming, we could design an experience which immerses the player in Orwell’s vision, and in Nerial we found the perfect partner to make this happen.”
