Very much so.

definitely

Do you have any criteria?

yes

If you like puzzles games, definitely!

I believe that the game is worth the price that it is currently at, however, here are some spoiler-free information that might help you decide:
- Length: About 4-5 hours. This includes being stuck a lot as well.
- Story: There isn't really any story, but some elements in the game could be counted as a stand-in for a story.
- Replay value: None, really. This is the only weak part of the game, in my opinion.

The game has a certain feel to it, and will challenge you with loads of phsycological puzzles, so if you are into that kind of games, I would go for it.

well, going off what The_Dude says, then for me, if a game of this type doesnt have any replay value, then i myself wouldnt buy it, and i actually came on this forums to see what the players thought so-as to decide for myself whether this game was worth buying.

if this annoys the developer, then my message to them would be, were this game to have expansions, like multiplayer challenges, something that made it replayable for me, then i would then be more interested in buying it.

If you like puzzle games combined with surrealism you will love this :) Nearly finished it and have really enjoyed it.

Just as The_Dude said, this game is really amazing cuz' its something you just don't see in other games, but unfortunately, you won't find any challenge later times you play it, once u finish it i recommend to play it again and complete every puzzle and secret rooms, then wait at least 1 year, or it won't be fun anymore. But it worth the price ;)

It's short but it's very, very good. Definitely one of the best games this year because it's not just another physics based indie game or portal 2 clone, but rather something with a lot of variety.

dont buy it if you have over 1920x1200, suxx ! without a crappie workaround, not native 2560x....

If you really enjoy psychological problem-solving, then this game is a must buy. If you are expecting Portal, or any game with absolutely stellar graphics, then you'll be disappointed, and also miss out on a fantasic experience. Some people seem to complain about this game being "random luck" or that it "has no puzzles". Neither of those statements is true. There are no luck based problems in this game. All challenges can be overcome by applying the basic wisdom that is dispensed throughout the game. If you get stuck on a problem, the very best thing that you can do is sleep on it. Seriously. Your mind will continue to work out the problem and find a solution. It's actually built into this game. The way the developler uses colors, sounds, physical layout, and movement are all tied to different psychological traits that our sub-conscious mind figure out for us. This is actually really cool thing.

So, to summarize, yes this game is worth buying and playing, provided your expectations are not based on what this game is NOT.

Sorry, but I think that this is superstition. I completed the game perfectly fine by really putting my mind into the puzzles and problems at hand rather than hoping that my dreams would cross into gaming territory. Whatever works for you, I guess.
Just as a side note: I actually completed the game in one day, only having trouble on a single part of a minor "puzzle", which I couldn't solve due to some reasons... (Spoilers incoming)
I was stuck in the part of "The Chase" where you get stuck inside a box. The music and atmosphere of that place felt really... Eerie, which made me look up the solution online (Which, of course, happened to be something that you had done countless times before in the game). After completing it, I had several other things from the game haunting my mind as I was falling asleep that weren't related to puzzle solving.

Yes, definitely.

As for replayability, there's certainly some.
You can (and almost certainly will) complete the game without solving all the puzzles (and thus unlocking all the pictures), so you'll want to play it a 2nd time for that.

Then there's the developer secrets; the purple blocks hidden throughout the game, the easter egg areas, and the single incomplete* dead-end puzzle.

*At least it was incomplete when I played through the game; subsequent patches might have finished it off.
