Disco Elysium
Phwoar, where did this come from? ZA/UM have knocked it out of the park with their game Disco Elysium, a stylish noir RPG with an absolutely mind-bending degree of open-endedness to how you go about solving cases as a detective. Disco Elysium is the sort of RPG masterpiece which will be talked about in the same breath as Planescape Torment, Baldur’s Gate and Divinity: Original Sin 2 in the years to come.

While Disco Elysium’s writing shows a creative team at the very top of its game, it’s no slouch in the story department either. ZA/UM breathe life into each and every inhabitant of Disco Elysium, flooding the player with little details and turns of phrase, all of which feeds into the open-ended murder mystery story arc which had us captivated from groggy-headed start to exhilarating finale.

There's nothing even remotely like Disco Elysium in the world of gaming. If we had to point at a group of gamers and say 'YOU THERE! You'd like this!', it'd probably be people who liked Pillars of Eternity but wished it was more like Planescape: Torment. And who also like Twin Peaks. Honestly, Disco Elysium is the love child of Planescape Torment and Twin Peaks, now that we come to think about it. Simple.
