    I really liked the game, so I’m always glad that new people get the opportunity to try it.
    Though I do wonder really just how many people that are able to sit down and read lots of dialogue on consoles.

    More than you would think. Remember that most of the people who would be interested in this game were playing rpg’s before voice acting was as common as it is now. I’m also excited because everything I’ve heard about Pillars is good.

    I play VNs on my PS4. Not all of us console gamers are stupid just as not all PC gamers are MOBA loot box addicts.

    Looks great.

    Does anyone know if the game features any questionable SJW content?
