Here's what I think about the story line

Seems like a lifestyle of an alien species as it shows a sperm of one going into what looks like an egg, then after separating cells, it shows what I think is the fetus in an egg, feeding on these bubbles. After you begin to swim, I'm guessing the alien species begin to be carnivorous, feeding on smaller creatures, possibly it's own species, and after you begin to fly, it could be a mating ritual as you insert these arrow shaped sperms into the male/female. At the last level, it has to be the female laying the eggs in the ocean to start the new life style of the alien life. I also think that the female dies because as it releases it's last egg, it simply loses it's energy to move and stops.

To be honest, this game really had moved me, with it's poetry and music, even though I had no idea what it was about, it had almost made me crying.

What's all the raving about?

This game was just a minor irritation. The story didn't engage me on any level and each stage was just figuring out a new annoying way to spin your mouse.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


As people have said so many times before in reviews, the controls were a bit difficult to figure out and the last sentence of the game was hard to read, but it was so beautiful. I probably didn't get it fully, but I think I understood a little bit. Either way, the absolute poetic brilliance here was breathtaking.
