Anyone else notice just how robotic everything in this galaxy is?

The first character we meet assumes the form of a heptagon, which rotates as she speaks in a clockwork manner. Stating simple facts only requires one turn, while abstract concepts require more and creative thinking requiring the most turns by far. Poor Keu is given a form similar to the planet's former inhabitants, presumably as a replacement for the previous occupants. She then is unceremoniously dropped off onto the planet, where she gets shown how electricity works and immediately starts filling the limited space in her backpack with computer parts and of course everything has a technical name the red many-angeled corruption  everywhere has to be referred to by its proper name. The spiky stuff doesn't even cause injury or illness in a normal way, no repairing the damage done to Keu from such is actually best described using the word repair rather then heal.


Even the respawn mechanic is handled accordingly. Having the replacment chassis provided for keu.exe starting out at half health as a reminder  of the prior failure does indeed sound like something a mother would  do. On a related note, could we have some dialogue from Nea if the player manages to get Keu several times within a short timeframe? Like a mother scolding a child for getting herself hurt? Which must be difficult when Keu can just repair herself easy if she has enough tools with her.

"Follow your instincts"  Keu is told. In other words, "Follow the preprogrammed instructions that was literally coded into your subconsious". Why thank you good sir. You may have the power to i dunno crush computer processors in your hand or something, but I have free will I dont have to listen to you the only reason why I am accepting your trinket at all is because it is literally the only way to proceed~

I also noticed that you tried pretty hard to keep the characters from swearing. If this is the goal then you should recheck the dialogue for the first lock

Wow, this is quite an analysis! You actually got everything almost perfectly correct. I have built the whole galaxy (and gameplay) around computers, wires, structures, interfaces. I'm glad someone finally saw it as a whole design choice - because it was!
Also, if you mean the "damn" in the Padlock dialogue, I personally say that word is far from a swear word. I'm holding back from the obvious two, but other than that, I keep things pretty middle-ground (Taff says "ass", and whatnot hahaha)


Cheers!
