Roller coaster

This game reminds me of a roller coaster, because of the cliffhanger ending. I wouldn't have paid what I paid for the game if I would've known it was so short, but it was excellent anyway. Plan giving you my five stars, even though it was way too short. By the way, try playing it while doing common household tasks. Still be disoriented in no time! That'll throw you off even more than the game itself.

Neat idea poorly executed

Navigation is frustrating; your position seems to change every time you respawn. I've been going north, south and east and keep running into the 'same' things, making it impossible to get my bearings.

Audio stutters rather than fading smoothly between channels, and it isn't clear if I'm facing something or if its behind me.

Audio cues for whether you're doing something right are vague and occasionally indistinguishable from environmental sounds. Is that my hand sliding along a wall, or a car engine that won't start?

The voice acting is amateurish to the point of being distracting. I don't hear a character in peril, I hear a voice actor reading from a script in a sound booth.

When 99% of your game is audio, it pays to spend a little more on a good voice actor and more time fine-tuning the sound effects.

Great Game But Bad Ending

I like the game but the ending came too quickly and leaves the gamer on a cliff hanger and waiting with anticipation that the developer should come out with more to the story line What happens next is what I would like to know like Dawn said in the game. Are you guys planning to do more with this game or was it a waste of money?
