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!

My interpretation is about extreme points of view. They are full of big words, radical ideas, ideals, and frankly the speak about utopias without offering sound arguments, practical ways to get there. Hence, they are easier to spread, they affect people easily, and of course the more there are to deliver the message, the quicker they spread.

People, now, who are in favor of those extreme ideas, no matter what those are (right-left, black-white), function with the same mechanism. So, especially when they are not that into their extreme - when they just got recruited, they can easily be manipulated, and be turned towards the other extreme. Because they are not drawn there with solid arguments, but with propaganda.

And then we have the gray being. He/she has experienced both sides of the coin, he has been back and forth in the spectrum and he now possess all there is to know about the certain subject the spectrum with the extemeties are about (e.g politics, economy). S/he realizes that the truth is in the middle. Where white turns black, and black turns white - the gray area. So, now, he does not try to persuade with big, emotional, simplistic words - he uses solid arguments, he proposes realistic ways. But the thing is, he cannot persuade anyone who abides to an extreme. He sounds foreign and strange to both parties. And because s/he is in a position where only people who have discussed, read, experienced and kept an open mind can be, he is among the few, truly sceptical, realistic, revolutionary individuals.

And of course the game offered a way to be gray. Discuss with both sides and learn thoroughly both sides of the coin. Discussion, after discussion your white and black spectrum, gains lines of gray.

The graphics were perfect for the point being stated, the gameplay was challenging and fun without being frustrating.

I thought it was a great way to get the point across. So many people feel the need to be polarized, and they're always the loudest. Nobody wants to listen to the guy who says, "Well, you're BOTH sort of right, and you're BOTH sort of wrong."

my lack of attention has caused me to stop when I was white and getting black to go white.

personally it reminds me of how easily we as humans are convinced to think another way and no matter how many people say they are dead set on their ways, SOMETHING will always make you a hypocrite.

now If i finished the game (and i'm only assuming) people turn grey, it would represent how in the end we are all sheep and thinking one way like everyone else is inevitable (an idea i disagree with)

:) open minds, other opinions, someone boring game.

what point, there's no point

firstly, i try NOT to guess the "real" message behind the game
because the authors told you to keep an open mind, and so i express what i personally learned/agreed with.

there's a phenomenon which you can see not only in the game, but also in reality and this review session that

people are making POINTS

it maybe good or bad or both,
however, gray people cant escape the fact that they have to make audible points to have their say.These audible points are points that differ from their desired points/the ultimate truth. However, these audible points may lead to their goal.....so,gray acts the same as black/white. otherwise,they are not accepted as if they dont exist.

the black and white loop is endless because the way we define gray people is that they are not accepted as if they dont exist, it's not a matter of being intelligent/open/free or whatsoever, the mainstream,the hive mind is always defined as black or white,so there's no good/bad, just a phenonmenon that mainstream is so mainstream....

the ending didnt include the fact that gray people are not as few as one person (you loop through n times to become grey,you have many followers who loop through n-1 or n-2 times).
