Empowerment is a comforting, familiar fantasy. But what I admire about Part Time UFO is that it isn’t interested in empowerment. Rather, it makes you feel different, and finds joy in the mundane. The world won’t be saved for your involvement, but it will be made better. One odd job at a time.

From the moment it starts, Gris steadily builds into a complex and powerful gaming experience that is sure to leave you touched and inspired.
