Crime caper Sunday Gold is half adventure game, half JRPG and all style

My team of misfits is breaking into the headquarters of London’s resident evil future mega-corporation, and I’m out of action points. I blew them off by searching through drawers in this office and picking a car lock in the parking lot, so now I have none left to hack the workstation and move our heist forward. Hesitantly, I pressed the button to end my shift, raising the security team’s alert status and risking running into the guards at random. Fortunately, I wasn’t sent corporate security this shift, and I’m free to hack with a new set of action points.

golden sunday (opens in a new tab) is a stylish game, with a jazzy soundtrack, expressive and impressionistic character design, and a distinctive “future of talk” aesthetic for its late 21st century London. It also deftly blends two classic game genres, turn-based RPG and point-and-click adventure, in a way that I found absolutely exhilarating in my playthrough of its first act.
