The game's 2D-going-on-3D environments are riddled with mysterious cuboid hieroglyphs, the lingo of a long-dead civilization. At first they're just ambiance, turning what could easily have been a universe of dry, colourful abstractions into an odd but convincing society, steeped in backstory. (Culture)
