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!

An incredibly poetic game. Few art games have a good message that is worthy to convey... this one does. Even fewer manage to communicate that message tastefully and this one does that perfectly. The game implies the message clear enough for everyone to get it while also remaining ambiguous enough that people can apply that message to an area of their life where it feels relevant whether that be political, social, religious or whatever and from there think in more detail about the theory this game is putting forward. This my friend is a true art game where the gameplay is not relevant to the score. The only thing I would say and this isn't a criticism but something to be aware of and that is the game does feel boring while your playing it and I can see people quitting without finishing it which would be a real shame.

The idea behind it is a good one,but it does get seriously boring after a while.

The point is obvious and the I think everyone will get it, or maybe I'm wrong, I don't know.

It's like politics and religions in my opinion. When one party does nothing at all, another rose up and complains and claim that they can do and fix the problems. And they didn't. So the people changed their minds again. And when that doesn't help. They switch sides and repeat the process.
Just like the old times when crazy Christians being extremist and conservative, forcing people to believe in Jesus Christ and God. And Atheists hates them. Now it's whole lot different because the one get bullied a lot are Christians. (Refer 9Gag and other social media websites) cyberbullying Christians for believing in what they believe. And the one in gray is fine with both, "you can have yours, I don't believe in that, but I respect your beliefs." and the open-minded ones "It's okay, because I believe in what I believe, you can choose not to, it's a choice."

Pardon me for going to the religious topics.

When people get opinionated, they just won't listen anymore because they like to fight, they like to be extreme, they like to be opinionated, they want to prove that they are right. Ultimately the problem doesn't get fixed, people get angry, riot happens, and the world collapse.

Creepy sound sent chills down my spine.

The meaning of the game is fairly obvious to me (though I'm sure there are other valid interpretations). I'm going to use politics as an example, though it can apply to other things (religion, economy, basically any argument). Let's say your on the far left, Black. Everything they say sounds pretty good, it could fix the country! You spread the word around, using all their scare-tactics about the other side and high-handed goals. You manage to convince people. But things go left for a while, and everything they said didn't happen. They were wrong! It's time to try right, White.

They're trying to warn people about everything wrong with Left. They have goals that could actually work. You take up the propaganda, and convince as many people as possible. But again, things go right for awhile, and nothing they said happens. But left has improved a bit...

Back and forth, until you realize that the truth does not lie at extremes. (non-political example) If a man says men are better than women, it's almost guaranteed that a nearby female will tell him women are better than men. But neither is true, both sides have strength and weaknesses. You become gray, in-between. But when the argument breaks out and both extremes are screaming, no one listens to the peoples saying 'you're both part right and part wrong'. People like extremes, and are rarely convinced by the in-between, no matter how valid. Your words just pass right through.

The game gets it's point across beautifully.
