According to Mui the studio made four stories, but in order to see all that the game has to offer you will need to play more than once. Ellenor explained that because there is “so much content” if you really want the full story, playing again another character will give their “unique” perspective of what happened.

In order to create this multidimensional narrative it hasn’t been easy, as every cinematic must be adjusted for that character. While the scenes may be very similar, they will suit the character that is currently experiencing it. Mui explained it was important that the “cutscenes reflect” the backgrounds, histories and even the way the characters speak in those scenes.
