Disco Elysium is the GWJ CRPG's Club's 14th winner, winning the vote in convincing fashion.
Disco Elysium is an award-winning isometric 3d role-playing video game developed and published by ZA/UM in 2019. The main character takes the role of an amnesic detective who has been charged with solving a murder mystery. The game is a non-traditional RPG, as there is no combat, with much of the player interaction coming through a system of 24 skills and dialog trees.
The Final Cut version was released as a free upgrade on March 30, just as we are beginning play. The upgrade adds full voice acting, more quests and characters, and other quality-of-life improvements. The Final Cut version is available on Windows, macOS, Stadia, and PS4/5. This update will come to Xbox One and Switch later in 2021.
We'll be playing this game until September 30, 2021. This thread is for friendly discussion as we play through the game. Share your reflections, successes, defeats, tactics, wishes, impressions, and whatever here! The more conversation the better, so post away.
For BIG spoilers, please use the spoiler tag. (No! I am your father!) Tactics, strategies, general story progression likely won't need them.
