I've player this game for about an hour and I can already say that I love it. I understand how many people find it annoying or think it's not a real game, but artsy-farty rubbish, but that's not what I feel it is.
First of all, the graphics are amazingly different from any other graphics I've seen in any other game. They're neither hi-fi like most 3D-games nowadays nor lo-fi like, for example, antichamber. They remind me of a game site called Venus Patrol and I've always loved their design. The music reminds me of early islandic electro band mûm. The athmosphere alone is fantastic and alienating, maybe like the first Metroid game, but in a different, more subtle way.
Now, the game itself made me feel like a lab monkey that was submitted to a complex intelligence test. Where am I? What is all this? What shall I do. There is no reference to anything that could help me solve any of these questions, and, as a curious little labrat, I start pressing levers, turning knobs until Ifind myself on the surface of something, wielding something and advancing towards something.
If you need action and easy clues, the game is definitely not for you. If you love a weird-but-soothing athmosphere, uncommon puzzles and intersting graphics: give it a go. I really didn't regret it!
