Who likes this game?
Is this a kind of game that only girls would enjoy, or does it have all kinds of fans? Is it weird-good like a David Lynch story, or just boring?

David Lynch all the way.

I have not come to the end yet but you're basically meant to wander the woods and return each daughter to her foolish death.

I'm highly guessing that desipte how distrubing the game's proceedings are it has a happy ending.

HINT: Returning back to "grandma" is not a good ending

Come on, just because something is weird doesn't make it david lynch.

Either way I'm guessing this game will never get a Linux port?

Quest3D doesn't support Linux so porting it would be an immense effort.

Then maybe a sequel in a different engine

This is a good game; it's one of those artsy-atsmopheric games, but it's really good in that sense if anything at least. It's more of a "visual aquarium of your soul" kinda game, and it's more of a relaxed casual play, but it takes a bit of time to go through it [from my limited experience can tell haha.]

It's pretty neat, give it a shot if you want to try something new!

This game has really nice atmosphere and style, but require time and deep involvement. Playing it like playing action game while you never play this genre before (action is just for instance, use any other on your choice). Would you complain 3D action hasn't unit management and gathering resources? The Path has absolutely different feeling, its own world and rules. So if you want to enhance your expirience, leave all expectations and play in open-minded style.

Shamus Young liked it.

Personally, I thought a lot of things could be a lot better. The characters' faces, for example.

The Steam description is misleading as well. It's definitely not a horror game, and since many of the game's events are figurative, you can't say for sure that there's only one goal or that achieving it means death.

Still looking for a game of this sort for Linux, although I'd be willing to jump the Winhurdle if the reviews weren't mixed. And looks like Dear Esther isn't gonna happen (properly) for Linux in this century, either.

The devs could barely afford to create this game. AFAIK, they didnt even earn anything.
So, my personal guess: No.

By the way: I enjoyed this game and it still havent forgotten about it. That means its a memorable experience and I personally found it freightening as well.
The gameplay itself, on the other hand, is really subpar. There is no general consencus wether anyone should buy this or not..

I enjoyed it (Dear Esther too), for the atmosphere mostly, the gameplay itself is rather slow - but then again, I am a girl, so my opinion might not be relevant. :P

Oh, come on!

This was developed by a studio who enjoys creating titles that are all about atmosphere, and that will make you pause and think. Artsy, if you must, but they arent for everyone. There isnt a very big challenge, and some people wouldnt even consider it a game, but more like an experiment, or interactive experience. You can try it out if you wish, but I dont really know about Linux ports.
