Rating Summary
This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of a girl (Chloe Price) investigating a family secret. From a third-person perspective, players observe character interactions, and can make dialogue choices that affect the outcome of the story. Characters are sometimes depicted shooting or stabbing each other, and Chloe is struck across the face in a handful of scenes. In one sequence, a character is seen getting struck and killed by a car; in another scene, a bound character is injected with heroin against her will. Injured characters are sometimes depicted with blood on their hands and clothing; a handful of scenes contain large streaks of blood. Dialogue and game text occasionally reference sexual material (e.g., “will bang 4 Jesus”; “Wait, you're a prostitute? But I'm a prostitute! Now who gets paid?”; “You just looked at my t*ts”). During the course of the game, a character is shown smoking marijuana; a couple of sequences depict high-school students drinking alcohol. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.
