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!

Makes you think, doesn't it.

The gameplay was easy enough to understand, the flash itself was designed very well, and the idea behind it is vague enough for a good range of interpretation. I believe it sort of stands for how, if you convince enough people to fight against the unjust rule, they may just become the unjust rule without realizing it.

Going off on a limb here, you can also think of it as our two political parties, where people believe you must be part of one or the other to be heard. When the player turns gray, as if accepting parts of both, no one from either side will communicate with him. The same goes if you want to count the two different groups of people as two races, and how being someone of a mixed origin usually never works out for them in either ethnic circle.

The most interesting game I ever Played!

I love this game. Now I know how the world turn: our ideas change, and if only we change, we are alone. So, we try to change the others' idea. The end is increbible!
I guess this is what all the idealistic writers fear.

Great game.

And a good way to make people think.
I personally undergo arguments like this too, trying to convince someone of something. And other times even having fun by trying to convince someone of something while I share their same view.
Eventually however, when trying to make a compromise of something, I never seem to succeed, it's so hard to make people take the middle road.
Sadly enough, these arguments happen with everyone in their daily lives, if they like it or not.

Franz Kafka would like this game

And Alicia Silverstone would say "way existential".

A world of black and white. Impossible to get anyone to accept shades of gray. They riot in one direction or they riot in the other. Some may say this world is not black or white but shades of gray, but most people see everything in black and white, and act accordingly. So accurate. One of the few things that actually does deserve to be in the "art games" category.

A powerful and ultimately sad message

My interpretation is the hero keeps realizing the side he is on (black or white) is wrong and goes to the other side, bringing people with him, back and forth. But, when eventually he reaches enlightenment that neither black nor white is right and the middle (gray) is, it is a realization stupid people with a mob mentality can not take. Oh, how I wish this was not so easy to see everywhere in our world...
