Description

Kent Knutson is a teenager who lives in the city of Neutropolis. The city is controlled by a totalitarian regime, which prohibits people to express any emotions that would deviate from the prescribed norm - such as joy and happiness. Kent is arrested by the Norms, the police force of Neutropolis, and put in prison for whistling a merry tune. In prison, he received an anonymous note that tells him that there is a resistance group somewhere in the city, which seeks to overthrow the dictator of Neutropolis. The question is - how can Kent find that resistance group?..

Normality is an adventure game done entirely in 3D, similarly to Under a Killing Moon, though with more colorful, cartoon-like visuals. Besides the somewhat unusual (for the genre) engine, the game plays like a traditional puzzle-solving adventure, primarily relying on manipulation of objects Kent is able to pick up and put in his inventory.

Trivia

Guess the developers weren't fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: In the sewer beneath the stadium there's a tunnel near the elevator exit that takes you to a small dead end with a special rat standing atop some pizza boxes and surrounded by four hopping, masked turds. Their names? "King Rat" and the "Ninja Turds".

Now that's subtlety for you!
