Not worth being called a game

I adore artistic games as much as the next person, I really do. They're some of my favourite kinds. This, however, was nowhere near artistic, nor a game. It was an interactive video at best, with almost no story what-so-ever.

It had a decent concept going for it, had you made it far, far more intricate, with a real story, rather than a select few words thrown together here and there. And gameplay that added to the story, drawing you into the potential artistic aspect.

As it stands, I can't rate this well, and I am sorry for that. I try to be fair.

Sound 0/10 : It was really just annoying, had you worked at it, it could've added to the game.

Music 0/10 : Same as sound.

Story 0/10 : You really did ruin any potential it may have had.

Gameplay 0/10 : What gameplay?

Overall 0/10 : Like I said, if you'd spent some real effort into, it could've been great. But, you didn't bother trying.

Really cool game!

I like that it kinda has a moral to it, and how it ends with just a red screen. It's the one kind of game that starts out innocent and gets meaningful. Good job, Austin. Good job.

Please use spellcheck next time

Interesting concept, though a bit underdeveloped. Also, since the concept relies so heavily on the short passages between each level the least you might have done was to make sure the grammar for some bits was right and 'existence' was spelled correctly.

I'm not usually a grammar Nazi but when the main theme of your game is spelled incorrectly there must be something wrong.

Hardly a game.

OK, yeah, it's got a vague story and pixel art, which somehow qualifies it as an "artistic" game that people will say I'm some idiot for not getting.

This isn't art. It's just a poor game with a few lines of text that kind of implies it's some kind of parasitic cell that was an absorbed twin (which is a real phenomenon, although they generally don't turn into weird abominations that fly out of your chest), but is vague enough to leave it open for "interpretation."

Yes, you can get something out of this. But you know what? You can get something out of any story, that doesn't make it good. Compared to real games, the gameplay in this is terrible, and compared to real good works of art in other forms, the message here is weak.
