The game puts a lot of effort into trying to show the Socio-Economic factors that play into the characters Micro level personal problems (May's Parents chimping out because they were relying on her becoming a PMC white collar to save their house from getting foreclosed / Beatrice having to wageslave basically for free at their own parents business because their mom got wrecked by US healthcare and so on / The Boomers sacrificing children to Molech because they miss the 1950s / Angus and Gregg's whole Arc revolving around their desire to leave hickville USA NOT because of Homophobia or whatever but because they realise there will literally be no livelyhood there once the last of the small business gets obliterated)
Now "Is it EssJayDubya shit" well…In some parts
But not nearly to the degree that people on /v/ / /vg/ make it out to be.
When Angus and Gregg were introduced as being gay i was also at first like "OMG Game fucking ruined just what i heard about he we go…" But No there is basically no pandering to the fact that the characters are gay outside of jokes and so on
Very decent play if you like walking simulator / VN style games
Decent messaging but everything does contain an EssJayDubya "twinge" in some way
