Ominous dread looms across the rails and builds at every stop. You are the conductor, this is your train, tasked with moving suspicious cargo across a dystopic state. The Final Station is your destination. A novel concept consisting of rescuing survivors at each stop, then deciding weather to spend scarce resources on keeping them alive. The story is tight; told through conversations with passengers and anecdotes from message terminals. The art is beautiful, with somber backdrops of a post apocalyptic world. The animation gives a gruesome brutality to the enemies and combat, making each encounter a white knuckle endeavor. The ambiance is fully realized; sound design heightening the tension. A game which nails tone over anything else, and a curious mystery to unravel as you move towards The Final Station.

The Final Station is highly recommended, check it out on Steam.
