An unexpected treasure
I read a lot of reviews dissing this app but decided to give it a try anyway.
It’s not so much a game as a story. By the end, I found myself bee lining to a destination point to stop something I thought was going to happen.
It is an engaging story that winds up not being what you thought.
There are no monsters or enemies, just you and your mind trying to figure things out.
I found this story to be very compelling and enjoyed the ride.
If you’re a fan of a good story as opposed to shoot ‘em ups, this is for you.
An abominable blight to the world of gaming
While I woud never hope for an internet apocalypse to wipe away every piece of data in the world, there will be one positive being that all traces of this game would be erased from existence. While I respect games or any media that subverts expectations, there still needs to be something worthwhile to justify the time you will spend with the media. This “game” however has nothing of value to offer. The love story that is often praised is on par with that of some pathetic tumblr blog. The game is mercifully two hours long, assuming you do not speed run and check every nook and cranny of the house in the hopeless attempt to find something… anything of interest. You never will. There are hints of interests, but the game does not care about it, and would rather push this embarassing story. Literally anything is more fun than the two wasted hours here. The dentist and scraping away to bloody up your gums. A loved ones funeral. Getting berrated by a supervisor at work. Any of these are preferable. Why critics love this game is beyond me. I suppose it was some evil scheme with these talentless developers to help swindle customers of their money, to which I say mission accomplished. You tricked me out of my money. Now do the world a favor and quit the industry and never make another turgid game again.
Touching and Engaging.
I love this game. Good price, wonderful mechanics, interesting concept, and it delt with the topic very well. Buy it, play it, you’ll love it.
