Beckett is weeeeeeird. It's a story-driven sort of adventure, except what it really is, is a scuttling little cockroach, and the cockroach smokes 40 Lambert & Butler a day and hasn't washed in a week. And has depression, probably.

It's safe to say you've played few games like Beckett. A multimedia collage piece about futility and hopelessness, it's utterly fascinating in many ways. To call it a visual novel is to suggest far too many ideas that aren't relevant here, so let's instead call it a "narrative experience". Parts Kafkaesque, parts Lynchian, parts bad sixth form poetry, it's really quite something.
