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!

hmm i think ur on to sumthin here

in the real world people are changing their mind allot. like with this concept with peace and war. u chage ur mind when eveyones with u but when u want to change their idea again it takes more effort to do so. just like if i told a lie it would take more effort for me to make u believe me. nice concept indeed oh and does that game end or does it keep on going

wow...that was powerful...

a truly unique game, presenting what we think as our complicated world as something so simple when we dont even realize that we have already reduced our world to this. it also shows how neutrality is ironically viewed as both acceptance and ignorance, even if the figure is a house hold name. i would have never thought of that after lazily switching back and forth something like that would happen. its simple style, use a sync system and just the manic way the game was set up made it brilliant. An improvement could have been a better bgm to fit the mood. Other than that, i had no problem with it. loved the little torches and picket signs, they were hilarious

Interesting concept

As you stated in your comment, you wanted to see others interpretations of your game. For me, this game describes how the government constantly fights, only 2 sides usually, (Republicans and Democrats at this time) along with a third side that is highly disregarded (Independent party). This also shows how peoples views change constantly and that no matter what, most people just follow the masses and try to fit in. When people try to fit in, things like this happens, constant debate over what's better, worse, ect...

Other then just government, this game can be linked to most things that are involved in the media, mainly religion. With all of these linking into this one game, you can tell how most of society works as a whole.

Overall, for a uniquely designed game, this was extremely different from any other game I've seen. This unlike most other games explain almost perfectly how things work to me.

10/10 for my review, 5/5 for my vote.

Great job on this game, hopefully it gets featured sometime.

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!
