Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Blood, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Drugs and Alcohol
This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Max Caufield, a high-school student with the ability to manipulate time. As players progress through the storyline, they are presented with various dialogue and action choices. Some choices can influence other characters to engage in acts of violence (e.g., beating up a bully, shooting a man in self-defense) and/or lead to their deaths (e.g., a character getting shot in the head or stomach, a character committing suicide). Blood is depicted around the corpses and/or when characters are injured. The game also contains implied references to sexual assault and pictures of drugged and bound female characters (fully clothed). Additional sequences contain reference to sexual material: a porn magazine that states “Oregon's Best Boobs;” sexual graffiti on walls (e.g., “69 reasons to b*ng Rachel," “Victoria love D”); dialogue such as “Now I can text Warren and tell him he doesn't stand a chance...unless he's into girl-on-girl action.” During the course of the game, a character is shown smoking marijuana; one sequence depicts high-school students intoxicated with alcohol and/or passed out in a party setting. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” are heard in the dialogue.
