Update March 2022: We replayed this game to see what would happen if we made different choices and here are our thoughts:
Mind Heist is definitely replayable, as long as the players make different choices. Using the 3-letter story code you receive at the end, you can ensure you don’t accidentally choose the same path on a replay.
The framing story and initial setup will be exactly the same, but the puzzles and flow of the game will be different due to the decisions that are made. At each decision point, new items are revealed and the interactions with the avatar are different.
That said, to see a different part of the story, you may have to make a choice that you didn’t want to the first time through, and as a result you might end up in a darker timeline than you desired. If you enjoy finding all the endings, good and bad, in a choose-your-own-adventure style story, a replay might be just the thing for you.
