What role does the gun play?
I really enjoyed Dear Esther. I also enjoy Tale of Tales other games, like The Path. I simply do not understand nor enjoy this game at all.

I never found a partner to play with so I had to resort to A.I., and after collecting all of the chess pieces I managed to find a gun... although my character holds it backwards. Does this gun do anything more than intimidate the opposing player? If not, then there is no point to this game since there aren't enough people playing this game at any one time; you can't really surprise artificial intelligence.

After collecting the gun and positioning all the chess pieces in their correct order, hoping for something to "unlock" or tell me I've done something right only to find out nothing much happens, I decided to go back out and collect more items, only to realise that the cycle has restarted and I'm collecting the very first chess pieces again.

This game is insulting.

The point is that there is no point.

If you type the Konami code in when you're indoors, the beach is full of people when you go back outside, and you can go on a killing spree. Try it yourself!

Seems legit. I just hijacked a passener plane and crashed somewhere out at sea. Soon after I found a lighthouse in the middle of the ocean, I went inside and entered some kind of bathysphere. I think the game is starting to get pretty good now, thanks.
