CAST INTO THE SEA

EDGE - - PLAY -

While you’ll spend a lot of time alone, Soma does in­clude other char­ac­ters. Chief among th­ese is deuter­ag­o­nist Cather­ine Chun, a sci­en­tist work­ing at the Pathos-II fa­cil­ity, who you’ll come into con­tact with early on and is try­ing to re­solve the sit­u­a­tion. She helps you to un­der­stand your cir­cum­stances, and pro­vides ac­cess to locked­down sec­tions of the base, among other things. Ex­changes be­tween Chun and pro­tag­o­nist Si­mon are by turns funny and poignant, and while the voice act­ing oc­ca­sion­ally sails per­ilously close to am-dram, the game’s pow­er­ful story and high-level ideas carry every­thing along with con­sid­er­able force.
