Worst game i have ever played. it should be classified as a video clip not a game


Rated 2 / 5 stars

I get it

I understand this is a satire of all those art games that are put out which have vague and sometimes meaningless messages that make you scream, "WTF?" at the ending, I do like how it parodies art games, I played one that's similar which has involves you trying to get to work and there's a few different endings, and one is you just jump off the roof :S But I think this was really a waste of time. I enjoyed 'Johnny Why Are You Late?' but this shouldn't be classified as a game, it's just a slightly interactive video clip.

About time!

I'm glad someone is finally parodying all the dreadful art games that keep showing up. It seems like anything can be called an art game as long as you pixelize the graphics and beat the player over the head with some half baked pseudo-philosophic message.

I love how you capture way art games like to bring up questions but really aren't interested at all about finding an answer past "shit happens maybe i should kill myself"

All in all this game might just have more thought behind it than many art games out there. Excellent work!

More a waste of time than anything

I want to make it clear that I'm rating this as a game, and that is why I'm offering such a low rating. First of all, this isn't even a game. There's no objective, no goal, no challenge. You press all of two buttons and listen to a guy. With that level of interactivity, a DVD is more of a game than this, because you can go backwards with a DVD.

Of course, it isn't really supposed to be a game. There's some kind of statement being made here in an interactive way, and that's fine, but it makes for an awful game. Some games pull off such a statement while still being entertaining. This, on the other hand, is pointless.

I offer you this constructive criticism: this would be easier to swallow on its own terms if it wasn't labeled as a "game". Call it a "satire" or an "experiment" or an "interactive experience", but do not call it a "game" unless it fits that definition.
