An amazing game, I played it before it was on itch and I’ll keep playing it again and again and experiencing it as I show it to friends.
It’s simple in its gameplay, and I think in the end the message ends up impossible to decipher, but that is fine as that is not the main point. The thing I love the most about the game is its feel and tone.
I think every location in this game is utterly distinct and has wormed its way into my subconscious, even when I forget about them after extended periods of time.
I think about especially the white world and the hand drawn world all the time, in the back of my head, when I see something that looks even slightly similar to it.
There’s an unconscious, liminal quality to this game that I just can’t shake off. On the whole, it’s not scary, but it manages to haunt me and unnerve me generally when I think about it.
It touches on so many things that tickle the back of my brain - vaporwave-pre-vaporwave, PC-98 games, Build engine, early 3D renders, forgotten educational video intros, etc.
Absolutely fascinating, energizing experience. Full recommend.
