Unrest is a role playing adventure game set in a fantasy interpretation of ancient India that adapts to death, failure, and the choices you make. Play as ordinary people in a struggle for safety, freedom, and a chance at peace. Use conversation, manipulation (and rarely, violence) to achieve your goals.
First of all: Unrest is rather an interactive short story than a full-fledged role play. If you are looking for a complex fighting system or depth in skills, you are at the wrong address at Unrest. What the game offers is an interesting story about...
the Indian city of Bhimra, whose tour changes all the time. A city that is doomed and visibly marked by wars and corruption. A big problem are the slums, which are close to the noble urban areas. Unrest tells a chapter from a particularly troubled time in Bhimra, creates an interesting story that is told from the point of view of several characters and is driven forward by soundless dialogues that make up the core of the game and repeatedly leave the player the choice of several answers. They also like to criticize society, Unrest often touches on uncomfortable topics that are still topical today. And that makes the game special, even if the story ends much too fast (after about three to four hours you should be through) and there is hardly any substance in the game. But if you are looking for a story-intensive game in an exotic setting, you will find it here.
