Beautiful, leaving us wanting more

Jrowdyt

I don't even know if I have the right words to describe this little game. It was so beautiful and showed a level of immersion that is hard to find in App Store games. The storyline and audio beauty made me close my eyes as I was playing as I became a part in the story. The music was hands down my favorite part of the game, it seemed to open up my entire view. My only wish is that there was a little more to the game itself. And maybe I'm right or maybe I'm just desperate to see more of this astonishing gameplay. But I really do hope people pick up on this and create games with this same amount of immersion that just puts the player in the same reality as the game. I loved this game, and thank you, creators for giving us this unique experience, however short it may have been.

Gave me chills

I don't usually write reviews (in fact I don't think I've ever written one before on the App Store), but when an app makes me feel like this, it seems an injustice not to. This experience didn't last more than 5 minutes, but gave me chills and left me feeling more than a little sad. Blindscape proves that you don't need fancy graphics or 15+ hours of gameplay to create a masterpiece. Just so you know what to expect when downloading the game, it's a story told entirely through dialogue of a man living in a dystopian world. It reminds me of 1984 by George Orwell or perhaps Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I could definitely see this game being made into a longer, more immersive game explaining what happens next. Bravo, Gavin! Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Tries to be good but fails

You can really tell this game is trying to be a 'deep, immersive story' type game that'll have you crying by the end of it, but it's so short that every piece of dialogue has to be constant exposition which makes the game boring and it makes you wonder why we're not experiencing the events that he talks about, like the 'super-important' unnamed girl. THOSE moments seem to be something we should experience first-hand and grow attach to this girl BEFORE she dies so that we can feel sorry for her and the character.

Also why does the blind man have such a deadpan voice? It makes it the constant exposition so much more uninteresting. Also the whole 'blind' thing doesn't add anything to the story at all, it just makes you seem too lazy to design graphics.

I hope that this game is just some sort of 'test' for a better, more complete game, otherwise it's just a short, lazy game as deadpan as Gavin Brown's narrating voice meant to advertise some mediocre end-song.
