Not that interesting

I lost interest. I didn't even want to finish it to see what happens at the end.

I like the sound, though.

This wasn't exactly a game. A game has a meaning to it. It has a goal. This was just run in that direction and bring that item back. I could do the same thing at wal-mart with a claw game. It did have good graphics and was visually and musically beautiful which is why it got the 4 stars, but when you want to make more than an interactive short story I will be willing to invest my time into playing it.

I'm gonna be honest here,

This game is tedious, boring.
It feels like the only thing that gives it length is how slow you walk. It's a very simple game, a very simple platformer, but even in simplicity you can miss the mark.
Call me insensitive, but I didn't find much emotion in this, no real meaning other than what you'd find in an average 'arty' game. A pseudo-deep 'revelation' meant to grab the hearts of the audience. Feels like you're relying on the song to make the whole thing sad, too. I suppose the fact I saw the end coming by the second pickup didn't help either.
Adding on that, the 'nameless block of pixels' type charater only goes so far. You can't simply plop him in and expect a real connexion with the player. If the character has no face, no voice, then he needs to act. He needs to interact with the world around him. He does very little of this.
I might also be completely in the wrong. Who knows. Just my opinion though.

Tough. Is a art game the gameplay of the game is just Boring. And unsatisfacing. waste like all that time to see the guy die? Just no. You should improve everything except the music.

no thank you

As entertainment this is quite boring. Its a generic and easy fetch quest that lacks depth or cvhallenge. As art this is flawed for a couple of reasons. The first is the fact that we have seen this style of artistic presentation in about every art game on newgrounds. The concept of restoring colour is in at least three well know 'art' games on this site alone never mind others.
The 'message' of the game will pass over most peoples heads. If i am not mistaken then the protagonist is the NPC's dead friend of relative. The small grave stone by the yellow flower and the fact you can't be seen by here lends itself to this theory. You are tasked with gathering the good memorys that are represented in color and object. Aftwards she lets go of her grief and you rest in peace.
I like the idea of an interpretive game and i am not against 'art' games as a whole i just belive that the music, method and style of the game was allt oo familiar to the genre.
