Now when it comes to controlling the beast, there’s a bit of a learning curve. You control the entire body but mostly around the center of mass, which takes getting used to, especially when you begin to reach larger sizes. This plays well into the mechanics thankfully, as being smaller makes navigating and sneaking easier, while having more girth means you need to take greater care of your movements, lest you give yourself away with an errant chunk of meat.
In addition to the creature you also have Another World style sections in which you get to play as a human, slowly unravelling the mostly silent storytelling as you piece together your origins. Playing as a human can be rather jarring, but it works well mechanically and has it’s own styles of puzzle to solve, always driving the game forward and leaving enough intrigue to make you want to see what’s going to happen next.
