Dear Esther is art!
Before everyone says blah blah this game isn't a game, Hold W is the game. Dear Esther simply is art. You are paying $2.49 for an amazing experience spanning approximately 1 hr to 1.5 hrs. If you go into Dear Esther letting its immersion take hold of you, taking in the beautiful environments and music. Delving into the mind-twisting themes, motifs and symbols, Dear Esther will have a dramatic effect on you. There is no rush go ahead explore everywhere, go places you thought were impossible to get to. Dear Esther is very emotional, the story is unlike anything I have experienced. It may not be for everyone, but for $2.49 Dear Esther is a masterpiece, "games" are interactive while art is something that will stay in your heart forever. Dear Esther is one of those stories you will not forget. If stories aren't your thing the environments alone are worth $2.49 to wander around in. If you are unsure, take a chance to be deeply moved by this story. Don't be afraid to play through it multiple times for all of the audio clips are randomized and the environments are non-linear, therefore you will have not seen the entire world or experienced the entire story in one playthrough. Once you let Dear Esther's story take hold of you it will never let go.
