The crème de la crème of this month’s assortment of Game Pass games isn’t the spice blend of the Dune real-time strategy game, but rather called a little-known text-based point-and-click adventure game Norco. You play as Kay, a 20-year-old woman who returns to her childhood home after the death of her mother from cancer. Failing to complete your mother’s half-finished chores with the help of a self-aware robot named Million, you search the industrial underbelly of New Orleans for your brother Blake, who went missing shortly after your mother’s death. In our review of Norco, Kotaku said the game is “a stunning piece of magical realism” with exceptional dialogue that “plays its cards with tremendous subtlety”.
If you missed this gem when it was a Game Pass PC offer back in March, now’s your chance to give it a go Disco Elysiumlike game try. fair warning, Norco includes cases of violence, suicide, substance use, and adult language.
