SPOILER WARNING!!!!!

Normally I hate this kind of game, but it mixes just the right amount of satire and story reinforced with game play to make it work exceedingly well. The story and characters are vague because the love isn't real. It's all fabricated in the protagonist's mind. The ending left me in quite a place of bewilderment. It was a pretentious game, but used its game play to brilliantly convey a poignant message. This is the standard we should hold our art games to. Definitely not game play wise, but story wise and how the game play supports the story. It's structured, it's reinforced, It's beautiful.

5/5

It seemed like a lot of games I've played before but I really like how it turned out, the clues were helpful, the controls were good. In general I'm really happy I played this.

While it's nothing really new, it is still a nice message.
