Ultimately though, what makes Magrunner a mediocre experience is that it feels padded. Halfway through the game, the magnetism mechanics stop being entertaining, but there’s still half a story to tell. The story itself is certainly intriguing, but technological cataclysm leading to unity, by way of Cthulu, makes the whole thing seem unfocused. There’s a message ingrained – we need to make sure our technological growth doesn’t hamper our humanity, doesn’t worsen society – but it’s all too muddled to have any real impact.
