Sometimes You Die

Description

In a game, you die.
And imply that it has no effect on you.
You feel invincible in the realm behind the screen.

This one is different.
In this game, you have to die.


∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ G A M E ∙ ∙ ∙
What is your motivation?
What do you expect from this game?
Do you want to beat it?
How do you know it can be beaten?

This game plays with expectation, illusion, and reality.


∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ P U Z Z L E S ∙ ∙ ∙
Think before you act.
Who knows what it means to die behind the screen?
Is it only a number that goes up?
Pixels that change their intensity?

Solve disturbing, surprising, and malicious puzzles.


∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ D E A T H ∙ ∙ ∙
Is it possible to go through the game
without dying even once?
Will you aim for it?

Some think the game is easy.
I think,
those haven't discovered the hidden levels yet.

What the new update contains:

First you need to make sure you complete all the Orange levels. This will get you the pause button. Now go to the beginning of the game and work your way to the prologue chapter. There will be a red arrow instead of a white one. Complete the prologue chapter and then you'll get a notification. DO NOT PULL DOWN! Instead read it and just flick it up. Now press the pause button and go back to level one. You'll get another notification. Keep playing normally and you'll get a notification for every level. Again. Do not pull down. Only flick up. This is the new wow factor. They did mention a new secret level I think in the Orange levels. I couldn't find it yet.
Also did you know that if you jump, pause the screen in the middle of the jump and then jump again it becomes a double jump?

Clever

I heard about this game from a podcast not too long ago and decided to give it a try.
It is quite fun with the tricks and whatnot, but my favorite parts are the music (I LOVE it) and the game talking to you like a philosopher; these combined give me an erie feeling.

Fun, with a flaw

Unique, addictive and fun. But... The meta stuff gets old quickly. Plus I've encountered a game-breaking bug in more than one spot where respawning gets you half-stuck in a wall so that you can't move. This is absurd in a game this popular. It occurs in multiple places and forces a restart of the app. Fix for 5 stars!
