This game is for very specific kinds of people, very specifically me. This is a complex dimensional puzzle game in which the objective is to figure out the objective.
With the exception of keyboard controls (which is pretty much the only in game text you will see), all aspects of the game are learned by doing, entirely at your own pace in a perfectly serene (or maybe ominous) environment.
In Mirrormoon EP, you explore planets with navigational help from a moon that mirrors the planet's surface. The reward for exploring isn't so much what you find, but the very experience of exploring itself and immersing yourself in the game's beautiful abstract world and atmosphere. And perhaps the satisfaction of naming your very own planet for other players to see and explore.
A huge contributor is the game's audio, which (after having played Fotonica) seems pretty characteristic of this developer. Much of the game's beauty and texture exists in the deep and impressive sound rather than visuals. A great refresher from playing games in a time when graphics and visuals are usually seen as a video game's most central attributes, with sound a distant secondary.
I wouldn't recommend Mirrormoon EP to just anyone, but those who I would recommend it to will not have a moment free of my pestering to play this damn great game.
