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!

Interesting...

The world isn't in black and white, but shades of gray. Its sad that many people can't see that, and it even takes our protagonist a while, jumping around from side to side finding out that each side is equally violent and sure of itself, and when he finally reaches that wisdom, no one is willing to listen, your thoughts loose their ability to sway and counteract and change those around you... that is what I take from this, and I shall keep it.

simple and amazing

this game is so simplistic yet what a lot of metaphysicality , what this says to me is many things, such as how one man can change manys opinion, how over time that view is expressed and changed over time and that it all started with one single person, then how it can change with the times and that mans opinion becomes the polar opposite until finally after seeing both sides the decision is to take the middle route the grey area.
what slick work
well done!

The struggle of ideas

Right away I thought of the left right political spectrum in the U.S., how its one side yells louder and eventually it gets its way, but then the other side comes up and tries to win back the majority, and it becomes a vicious cycle of extremes where everyone believes the other side is right and the other wrong. They switch back and forth every couple of years, but they never see the middle ground, the traits we have in common, what unites us as humans and what we must face together. There are brief moments of peace because the other side is too small to dissent, but eventually they become a majority and it all starts over again. In the blind routine we lose sight of whats important, and care only that our side wins, then when we win we realize "What now?" queuing the minority's turn to fill the vacuum. We will always have shades of pure white and pure black, important because their radicalism can bring new ideas, revolution, maintain a balance, and also show us what not to do. But they must remain a minority, to prevent polarization of society and politics, everyone else should file in between, and be shades of grey. They will be able to keep a more level head, and will see more clearly what is good for humanity because they wouldn't be in such a fierce conflict. This is proven at the end of the game, where the two sides are so caught up in their struggle, that they can't hear the reason of the middle man, who is also to weak because not enough people stand with him, and instead charge at each other everyday, in the came cycle, accomplishing little, unable to reason, unable to see, because they can't stop and listen.

nice sociological exercise

Id, ego, and superego. Excess of either, violence insues. Balance of all, and no one cares. Basic exercise of egocentric values, interpretations, and consequences of such. Rather addicting, once you get the hang of it.

Good job.
