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!

Neat.

I enjoyed Gray a lot. I think your point was well-made.

My biggest complaint is that the ending isn't necessarily intuitive. If I hadn't seen a review talking about turning gray I wouldn't have kept switching until something new happened. I really think adding some kind of indication ingame that there is a third state you will eventually reach would be helpful, because I almost quit after oscillating black to and white and back, thinking it was an endless loop.

yea, i hear ya, but I think that would spoil it. Not knowing is part of the neccessary tension. It can be frustrating though...

thanks for playing and being patient!

Strange and kinda depressing

After converting people u yourself change sides right after its as if you are the driving force behind both sides. And sadly when u finally settle on a compromise between the two ,"gray" , no one listens to you.

Very good look on government party beliefs following sides differing only in context. We argue for whats not fucking us over sure that it will work better. but this could be applied to a lot that people generally follow blindy.

Heh...all this psyco-babble and thoughtful reviews means u have a very good game. 10/10 and all of my 5's.

Symbolic! 9.5!

There's definitely some symbolism here. I found one way of interpreting it, The mindless "whites," they follow the crowd and march to the beat of everyone Else's drum, Much like our society today while the "blacks," they are the ones that are attempting to, say "convert people" to their cause, like for example; eco-freaks trying to help the earth.

Was I close??

its ok. the game itself was kinda boring buy the idealology behind it was interesting. I think its portraying two things. one that people are stupid and will change their opinions with the crowd. two that people will never except the middle ground. ur either black or white, if you try to convince someone to be gray they wont even hear u out. which is why wen u turn gray u cant even win.
