Evaluation: Tyler: Mannequin 005
Most of Tyler: Mannequin 005 is spent at midnight — proverbially and actually. The darkness saps this little robotic’s battery and the sunshine recharges it. That is the central mechanic. But it surely’s additionally an amnesic story of types the place Tyler, the titular protagonist, is left questioning who he’s and why he is right here.
It is a completely acceptable theme as a result of this sport has identification points. Tyler: Mannequin 005 by no means figures out what it needs to be, what it does nicely, or what’s value leaning into. It is all so confused.
