Beautiful!!!! But short.
Definitely use your headphones for this one, the music is wonderfully composed and arranged to help the story (which still is very vague after a few times through). Controls are intuitive, and the gameplay is smooth. The visuals are stunning and masterfully done.
My ONLY complaint: it's too short. I know it's an interactive poem - but give us some way to explore more in each level - make the levels a bit more challenging, instead of just keep going up. I'd like to see a little more hint at the storyline too... Love.. Loss.. Survival.. Protection; fill us in a little bit.
A beautiful and emotional journey!
I don't leave reviews. This is more of an emotional journey than a game. Two entities working together to achieve something greater. Sometimes helping and even becoming the support for the other. The music is haunting and yet draws you into the experience. To those who have complained about its length: the music, environment and experience leaves you with so much the time seems irrelevant. One of the best parts is being able to play it with your partner. This is a must have.
Beautiful and Magnificent
I bought this game two days ago, played it all the way through immediately, and actually haven't played it since. I enjoyed it so much though, that two days later I'm still thinking about it.
I don't feel like it would necessarily appeal to traditional gamers, but then, I don't think that it's necessarily intended to.
Yes, this game is short - but it's amazing, meditative, and beautiful.
My two cents to the developers would be that this is beautiful as is. Ordinarily when I buy games at this price, I want there to be more to them, but I honestly don't think this needs it. I am definitely excited to see what you make next.
