Very memorable, and I highly suggest getting the Collector's edition if only for the music.

I have heard it tampers off with some glitchy box puzzles near the end.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm in an echo chamber ;) We've patched the vast majority of the bugs since release.

Thanks! I will consider it.

I just saw my friend play it, and had to own it myself! I'd say it's absolutely worth it :)

It's a bit of a mess in some respects (the narrative devices, for example, are inventive but not entirely successful; some of the puzzles feel a bit perfunctory, but to be fair that is a difficult task to balance over the entire length of a game), but it's very clearly a labour of love and that makes the game's best moments really shine. Without spoiling anything, I thought Dawn getting to test her thespian savvy was particularly inspired.
I recommend it, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the developer does next.

It's pretty unique and has some rather memorable moments. If you like puzzles and stories, get it. I can't speak to any bugs since I played it on PS4.

Pretty cool game.
The shadow walking is a pretty big inovation, and you're going to use it a lot.
Some times you're going to be jumpingfrom shadow, popping into the real world, dashing, then popping back to the shadow for safe landings and its GREAT! The mechanics are something new and special, honestly can't wait for a 2nd game.
The music is scored absolutly wonderfully and the voice acting is tops.
My one and only complaint is camera angles can be a bit off at times and makes a part here and there feel a little jerky, but its pretty minimal.
Definetly worth a purchase.

I think it's a cute little indie game so yes, get it.

Not saying you shouldn't get it, but IMO it's not that great. I have it on PS4 via PS plus and I haven't gotten passed the 2nd level, I was forcing myself to play it. This does not mean it's a bad game, it's just a matter of opinion.

Moving on, the game runs good, has a nice art style, good voice acting, controls were intuitive, and also indroduces some fresh gameplay mechanics. The story wasn't all that interesting to me, but I can see how some people would very much like it.

This is a niche game IMO, and who knows it may be for you.

Thanks. You are one of the view people who say a game is meh and then go to say that other people may like it.

Good game for only, $8.99

It's a fantastic concept that was executed fantastically, however, it DOES only take about 4 hours to finish the story and unlock all the achievements.

I'm definitely gonna be keeping my eye on the devs for upcoming releases.

For me, the length of the game was a solid 6 hours, exploring and finding everything on the way (in other words, taking my time to marvel in the scenery :)), and only taking a little extra time on a few of the harder puzzles. Some of the jumping etc. you have to do can be a little tricky at times because THE KEYS ARE NOT REBINDABLE (at least not without editing an ini file, I suppose). The game overall was an enjoyable experience with a well executed mechanic wrapped in a cute story. Absolutely worth the price if you're simply a fan of this type of adventure, if you will.
