Just who are you, anyway? Nous will tell you. The computer analysis machine, Nous takes you on a journey into your own mind. Your responses shape the experience as the game world changes to suit your playstyle. As Nous learns more about you, the challenges grow more intense ... and personal. Fight your demons or embrace your friends. Face your fears or flee in terror. Beat the computer at its own game. Nous will tell you.
A interesting little game, with a interesting narrator. I liked it, but to be honest the gameplay is nothing special and the dialogue is not quite interesting enough to really make up for this fact. Its pretty good, participially if you like your games to be a little meta, but there are better examples of this.
Warning: The game appears to use a picture that it randomly finds on your computer at one point, which could theoretically turn this fairly harmless game into one only fit for adults or produce some uncomfortable moments if you are playing in a crowd.
