" It is lovely work, this first act, and I wish that I could unplay it so I could experience the game for the first time as a complete work. Instead, I’ll play a single game with a gap in the middle that will stretch months, picking it up again with the details lost and the nuance dulled by time. Or I could start over and lose the sense of exploration and wonder of those first introductory hours. No matter what, playing the first act now means giving up something later."
