Eh....okay. I like your art and the mood but it's not much of a game. And I guess you mostly wanted to tell a story with that, and it's cool...but for whatever reason it didn't work for me. I would have given it three stars but I'm not all that interested in getting all the medals. Not a bad effort, but in the Art as Games category you need to do something to spice it up a bit.

I don't mind slow moving games If I'm drawn in by them, but even with the bit of background story I really didn't care that much about John.

Hope this was helpful, I'm not trying to be mean - and I wish I could better describe where this 'game' falls flat.

John sure moves slow for someone in a low-gravity environment.

I really didn't have much fun playing this. The only thing you can do is walk back and fourth. The story was ok but a game needs more then story to make it a good game.

I liked the atmosphere in the game. The music was minimalist and unsettling, the visuals were unnerving, and the plot was very well made. However, I feel this ultimately falls flat because of extreme amounts of linearity. There were many times I found myself only pressing one button at a time to either go forward or advance the text. I would try to go back, but it being an art game, it prohibited me from going backwards and as if to add insult to injury, my character walks almost agonizingly slow. I would get it if the character got slower over time, signifying their decent into madness, but the character maintains the same speed for the entire duration of the game.

This extreme linearity makes it very tedious to go through it multiple times which is required if I am to beat it entirely. This can be fixed in 1 of 2 ways as I see it. 1, up the character's walking speed, or 2, allow me to replay at a certain checkpoint in the story. This way, the game is much less frustrating to get through and we can more easily appreciate the story.

All in all, this game has a great story, but is ultimately bogged down by bad mechanical choices. Something makes me think that this would have been better suited as a CYOA style game where we'd watch the story unfold and be allowed choices at integral moments. While terrible mechanically, it has a good story, so I can't be too rough.

2/5

EventHorizon responds:

In reality there are points where the speed of the character change, when John gets scared walk fast as for example when he sees for the first time the entity, however thanks for the review.

The only reason I'm here is for the easy medals. The character walks too slowly, the whole story makes no sense, some people are saying the suspense was good and i have no clue what they mean since there is no suspense at all. Unless of course you're like 6. All you do is read text, and walk back and forth the entire game. And the ending was shit as well, it made no sense as to what was shown to John, and why he suddenly started talking and acting like his bloody imaginary self. And the fact that he used the line he himself had no understanding of, just made the ending 10 times worse. Like he sees himself talk weird shit and weird shit appears, then a few days later the rescue team (more like a single medic) come, and he says the same weird shit and the game just ends.

I'll give you 2 stars for the easy medals and the effort to make something.
