A pitiful attempt

A pitiful attempt to appear artsy with a game which is no 'deeper' than a children's swimming pool. A failure as both a game as well as entertainment, invoking NO thought or personal connection with the faceless and interchangeable characters. Due in no small part to the shoddy story which is riddled with so many plotholes that it'd be enough to sink an oceanliner.

On the plus side, the lack of a replay button means I won't have to suffer through a second viewing.

Not a game, nor a message

This game isn't really a game. It is nothing more than a few choices, and very slow movement speed. That was fine with me; if you want to focus on story that's your choice. The problem lies in the fact that you do not have a good story. It's just too nonsensical; how could a drug that kills everything get past even the most basic lab tests? Why spread it through a weather balloon? You obviously didn't work very hard on it.

And then there's the lack of replay option. This is a game built to have multiple endings and exploration, yet you go against this. And then, you complain that people want to TRY to enjoy this game more than once (if they even enjoyed it the first time around).

Retro graphics doesn't mean bad. You need to learn that. Things can look retro but still have more than a block for a face. The lack of detail is also annoying.

Take a look at (I Fell In Love With) The Majest of Colors, and Looming to see how you're supposed to create a game with message.

This is why I can't truly respect art. Something so vague, and muddied such as this is called art, while a more modern, mainstream game that is actually able to illicit an emotional response isn't art. Calling this art is simply insulting every other game ever made.
