Conclusion

Simulacra is a masterpiece and reminds me of Life Is Strange as both games need choices and feelings to move forward. Even if it takes some time to get into the story and understand the basics of the game and how to play it. If you’re into more story driven scary games then it’s worth to learn the basics and give this game a try.
