It saddens me people rate it low just because they don't understand the game, very original and nicely written. Thanks as well Godzealot, your explanation helped a lot =D

Waste of time

The music is obnoxious. The controls are ridiculous. The story makes no sense. Did someone say this was poetic? Do you even know what that word means?

My Take

I'm going to explain my take on the story and also how to win each minigame.

All cutscenes move your cursor in a circle motion like the animation shows to skip.

Game 1 - Use left and right motions to swim toward a large egg. Once you reach the edge of the egg, the rest is automatic.
Part 1 - The girl is born, starting he time in the "Coil" of life.

Game 2 - The cursor is like the end of a magnet that repels. First sort the colors together, then seperate them into three chunks.
Part 2 - Now she is a bit more grown up, and she was just raped. This was a very traumatizing experience that would haunt her for the rest of her life.

Game 3 - The goal is to reach the bottom. Move your cursor around the object like a rolling motion to make him move left and right. Obstacles will be in the way.
Part 3 - She is living her life trying to move past the rape incident, and slowly she is getting stronger.

Game 4 - Use your string to guide the falling objects and consume them. The swimming things will try to steal the objects but just eat 6-8 of them and you will be done.
Part 4 - She has seen people die, and I believe she is fatasizing about death. The story is no longer referring to "him" as the rapist, but him as "death".

Game 5 - You want to absorb the fetuses into your ovary. Hovering cursor over the organs to the very right and left control the spin, the colon thing in the bottom propels you forward, and the ovary in the middle will create a suction effect.
Part 5 - She is in a relationship now, and finally feels like she is moving past the incident, though the longing for "him" (death) lingered, for once in her life she forgot about him.

Game 6 - Shoot the other person with enough cupid arrows. Just try to steer towards him, watch the direction he turns when he goes to the edge of the screen, and try to match the way he's going. Eventually you should be right behind him pelting him with arrows.
Part 6 - Time passed, the relationship didn't go well. She had too many demons about the past, and she blamed herself about the relationship. She finally let someone in, but even that didn't work well. So she decided to end her life.

Game 7 - Not sure what the goal is, but I think it's to swim to the right. Your jellyfish will automatically turn downward if it's too high, and automatically turn upward if it's too low. Use a circular motion to steer. Not too much, or else you'll overspin. You can actually go super high if you balance it right.
Part 8 - She is committing suicide. She has already started it, and there's no way to stop now. She feels "him" in the room (death). She is crying and thinking of leaving life, scared of how she would be treated (in afterlife), scared of what she had done (suicide).
Part 8b - Her life is fading to it's last moments now, she feels death's hands on her, she was leaving life, completing her coil going back to the beginning (nothingness)...

The last line says "He pressed his cheek to hers he pressed his cheek"
