Instead of putting the player in the shoes of a character with powers and making them think about using them, here Don’t Nod made the player protagonist had to worry about his little brother, a pre-adolescent with overwhelming powers that you should use, or not, in the dramatic situations in which the duo is involved, chapter after chapter.
“You play as Sean Diaz, a normal 16-year-old boy who has grown up in the suburbs of Seattle,” reads the title synopsis. “After your brother Daniel unleashes his telekinetic powers through a traumatic incident, you are forced to leave your home and run from the police. As the older brother, you are the only one responsible not only for the safety, shelter and well-being of Danielbut also how their power grows as you travel across the United States in an attempt to cross the wall into Mexico.”
