Hi-Bit Studios embraces the thoughts and feelings of teenage life, in 198X. Released as the first part of an unknown quantity, 198X explores the growing pains, the desire to fit in to a mold that’s not been set. This Kickstarter success is ambitious, thought-provoking, and entertaining. It strikes a nice balance between genres and telling a story. While the game ends on a cliffhanger, the story is worth hearing in its current form.
