DISCO ELYSIUM: THE FINAL CUT

Disco Elysium was developed and released on October 15, 2019 by ZA/UM. Disco Elysium is an isometric action game.

Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is a groundbreaking role playing game. You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders or take bribes. Become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being.

Gameplay is closest to the Witcher 3 or Elder Scrolls: Skyrim from an isometric camera angle.

All of the city’s beautiful people are brought to life with full English voiceover. Play characters against each other, try to help them, or fall hopelessly in love as each word is spoken to you with the appropriate accent and emotion.

Disco Elysium is a non-traditional role-playing game featuring no combat. Instead, events are resolved through skill checks and dialog trees via a system of 24 skills that represent different aspects of the protagonist, such as his perception and pain threshold. Develop a personal style with over 80 clothing items. Wield 14 tools from guns to flashlights to a boombox, or pour yourself a cocktail of 6 different psychoactive substances. Develop your character even further with 60 wild ​thoughts ​to think – with the detective’s Thought Cabinet.

​Death, sex, taxes, and disco – nothing is off the table. Revachol is a real place with real challenges. Solve a massive murder investigation, or relax and kick back with sprawling side-cases. The detective decides, the citizens abide.

The game’s the art style, while washed out, sets a good tone for the retro-future noir that the creators envisioned. The story is definitely attention-grabbing despite being rather an old trope – amnesia is a difficult beginning to sell convincingly. They managed it pretty well. Good thing too, because the entire game is story.
