Thanks for reading.
I do like Suda - in fact I intend to play through NMH 1 and 2 some time this year - tbh I prefer his work on the Silver Case to most stuff. Until you reminded me I had completely forgotten Suda had anything to do with this. There's nothing to indicate that he did - bar perhaps the shift away from the the weirder themes in the first three games.
Do take a look at the game, but keep in mind that there's a game breaking bug relatively early on. You can work your way around it but you'd need to look up how to online.
