This game is about two lovers named January and September.
No, wait; it's about a group of people who don't believe in the sky.
No, it's about a pantheon of scientific disciplines.
Or maybe it's about an ancient beast who knew exactly when it was going to die, and how.

It's about a place. A place called Looming.

I'm stuck trying to find portal 2 and 7 like other users I've read the review.

I loved the story, the ambience and the challenge. Good job.

I just think it should have a map.

Amazing

The game is great. Although it may confuse and even enrage others, it is very enjoyable to busy thinkers like myself :) I found the puzzle aspect of it enjoyable as well considering how much I love puzzle games in general.

It just seems to me that I love games that make me have to think. Great job ;)

Impress

The two civilizations made me think of inductive and deductive logic. The inductive civilians apply changing forces with one another. While the deductive civilians reduce the never ending emanation concept of existence.

Or lest that is my impression of it. I tend to be wrong on deep thinking.

I could get all the endings except the 3rd from the last. I think it has something to do with the diagrams, but I can't figure it out! I'll keep trying till I give up and scan the reviews for a strong hint.

I can't think of anything to penalize you on. I did find it annoying for the long walks I had to do, but for a game named "Looming" it seems like a literal take for the long hikes.

The story does have it loop holes and so does history/archeology in general. I want to know more about these two cultures; however given the circumstances from lack of evidence I can only keep the question looming in the back of my mind.

woah.... O_O

This is epic... yes its scary and dark, and I shouldn't be playing it at night... but the story line and the puzzled and stuff just keep making me want to play on until the end. the art is different, I like it though. you should make a guide for people who don't know what to do or can't finish it :3 i'd appreciate it if you did :P
this definitely deserves 5/5 10/10 +fav :)
