Hanon Ondricek has shown himself to be one of the best text adventure authors of recent years (we have full coverage of Transparent). So expectation are high for this one.
Fair follows last year's (The Baker of Shireton) approach: the player is thrown into an "open world" which can be, explored, used and abused to his liking. This is a special approach to storytelling insofar that it even enables the player to stay away from the classic role of protagonist and just let things unfold around him. There is a number of things going on and which strand of plot he follows is entirely up to the player. I.e. it's much more of an indirect way of storytelling compared to classic player-centric narratives.
