Mike and I made this game as an experiment to see if we could express this little idea solely through gameplay. We ask that you be patient while playing through it and try your best to finish it. Also, if you have an interpretation and so on, please share in a review.

Thanks for playing and keeping an open mind!

A great analogy for life, but missing one thing...

You got the "we waste our lives on pointless crap and futile arguments" part right.

But you forgot the most important part:

"and then we die."


Rated 5 / 5 stars

So addictive.

And inspiring. It obviously has some form of political overtones to it, but in the long-run, it's just a generally fun game. :)

Very deep

Simple, fun, and deep.
Converting the people can be difficult or easy, but once you settle in the middle, noone will listen to you at all. It can be fixed a little more though, when you convert someone, they look identical to you, and some times it is hard to find where your guy is, could you make him stand out a bit so you can keep an eye on him?

I don't get it.

I figured out how to turn people into black figures, but after a minute, I turned white. Is this suppose to go back and forth?

Obviously there's a lot of room for player interpretation here. Let's skip the idea of the player character as mediator between the two, because that's just not how the game works; or if it is, it shows how futile the role might be.

Instead, we play an agitator. If he sees white, he converts it to black. If he sees black, he converts it to white; delighting in the confusion that results when he infiltrates one group then the other just to keep the riot going. But in the end, when he achieves that goal, his own talents desert him. 50% reckon he's not white enough, and 50% reckon he's not black enough. He's a victim of his own success.
