Automata is definitely gunning for my favorite media experience this year. I am very glad it exists and hope the team gets to make more.
As someone who deals with severe anxiety/depression, I really connected with all of the Androids reactions to late game events and interpretated their “errors” as analogues to emotional breakdowns (in 9S’s case it’s definitely literal, admittedly).
It’s hard to just talk about this game and not sit down and discuss how much if it is so intricate and well done. Props to the localization crew as well for preserving all of this.
