Simple question, WHAT IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE?
I was watching some "game"-"play" videos and stuff and all I see is that I understand nothing. Like, all I saw was that there is simplistic graphics and cool effects when you close your eyes and you can play chess in some fairly confusing manner. Also there are strange popups in broken english.

Sooo, what is this? Even Proteus was more straight to the point, because it just flat-out said it's a visual exploration experience game thingy.

That sounds like a legitimate way of summing it up.
Now I wonder why it costs 10 euros if you can do that for free.

And if I want to play "lovers torn apart by distance" I'll just watch Hoshi no Koe - Voice of a Distant Star...

No, seriously, what is this?
Based on the description, what you do is walk along the beach, play chess, and enjoy the emptiness of the game that is nothing. Which is why it's artistic, for you pay 10 euros for the experience of emptiness.

What?

I'd rather buy Frozen Synapse while it's still on sale, it's cheaper and definitely provides a cost-effective experience.
Or the current indiegala bundle, for Introversion Software is awesome.

On the other hand, in this case, I'm just curious what objective features it provides for 10 euros. As far as "art" goes, that does not make up for lack of content.

I bought it and it still sucks... My balls are interactive art... Can you say balls on steam?

I have a feeling there's more intricacy in its design, and it's cheaper to play with?

Sir, this game is an IGF finalist for the NUOVO Award. Maybe you don't like it, but I don't think it will be on the worst games list: it's on the "best indie games of 2012" list.

i'm still confused about what it actually provides in terms of experience or gameplay.
il signor m Mar 1, 2013 @ 3:27pm 
It simulates the conversation between two lovers in a café, a conversation filled by unsaid sentiments and unimportant words: maybe they meet for the first time, maybe for the last time, maybe one of them wants to end their relationship...

Shouldn't I just say "I love you, when will I meet you?" to Cleverbot for the same result?

Indie games are crap by definition. Though some are chewable for a few hours before you spit it out. This does not seem to be a game however, but some presumptuous art project. I don't have a Steam account to buy art, I have a Steam account to buy games.

Spot on. I mean, what are we supposed to think, that decent games can be made without AAA budgets? Come one now, if that were even remotely possible, we would have seen at least one indie game that resonated with somebody by now. Instead all we have are a bunch of flops that nobody enjoys playing.

How stupid was that paragraph?
