This game lacks subtlety. I'm sure you must have heard the phrase "Show, don't tell." If this is supposed to be an art game, you should be giving the player some time for introspection. Don't tell me how to feel.

Many people have already pointed out the poorly-used 'Pixel art' style and linear-nature of the game, but they really are a problem so I'm pointing them out too. The art style is no excuse for poor art. The linear-nature suggests that this isn't a game at all. You know, making the audience feel like they're being forced to do things (Play a certain way, feel a certain way) seems to be your style. That isn't a good thing, it's shallow and dull.

Normally art games can be forgiven for their poor gameplay, if the story or message they convey has impact. But you seem to disregard, or poorly think about, presentation and controls. They're what keep people grounded and ready to accept the story.

The story - wasn't very good. It was decent, but it was very basic. That means you would have to win me over with something else (Which you didn't). Taking inspiration from other media is good, but if you don't try to explore a theme, your story is nothing more than just a collage of scenes from a bunch of different movies (Which, I think, was how many people received it). Explore something.

Overall this game deserves a poor rating. For lack of substance in presentation and story.

When I saw the tags, popularity and title of this game, I assumed it was going to be a fantastic game with an exceptional storyline and beautiful gameplay. What I instead got is an extremely tedious movie with a terrible plot and irritating controls. To move, you use the arrow keys. Makes sense. To select, you use the mouse. WHY?? IF YOU ONLY GIVE US ONE OPTION ANYWAY, WHY NOT HAVE US USE THE SPACEBAR?? This brings me to the plotline... There is none. Having soon been bored by the simple back-and-forth space adventures of Commander Walks-Slow, I decided to do a little exploring of my own. You can't... the game instead forces you to crawl through mundane scenes in the life of a poorly rendered space man. In all, this was an a fairly ambitious idea (although not entirely his own idea, read the description) that simply did not work. I give it two stars for at least giving a fair effort.

This game is one big "alright, what the heck?". I mean, seriously, the art and the eerie feeling won't cover a bad written story line. It has lots of potential, but it seem to me you kind of mistake a story with open ending and one which just simply having nothing to draw a conclusion, same with an art game and an emo game.

From the beginning to the end, players have to follow a specific path, which including John walking all the way outside again after sending the rescue message for no particular reason (why no "What is that sound coming from outside?" then "It can't be, I have to find out") . If you wanna do a movie-style game, give more explanations, and save us from that god awful slow walking, which takes about 70% of the game and the story only take 30%. At best, the whole story includes "creepy wannabe" moments, at worst, "ok, it happens, what's next" Then, finally, we have the ending, which is nothing but a simple cliche. I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone here, but really, you can definitely come up with something more creative.

Now come my favourite part, the controller. We use the right hand for the arrows,the left hand for the Space bar, then what on earth do you want me to use to control the mouse? Why not the left hand for "W,A,S,D" and Space, the right hand for mouse? Or even better, left hand for "W,A,S,D" and Space, with the Space bar doing the same thing as mouse? After all,the only moment you have to move the mouse is to pick up the green card, which is really unnecessary.

So yeah, having potential, but rather lazy attempt on making and testing the game. This is just some what better than your other game, "loneliness", but the story with nothing to offer really is trademark.

P.S: forgot to mention the secret room, which surprisingly , I don't give a damn to care what behind those random code puzzle. The game itself doesn't answer anything, and I doubt this would.

This is on a complete wrong category, this should be a movie not a game!

The storyline is so strictly linear that it could pretty much be redone with only 1 button or no button at all.
As a movie it should be good but as a game... ... ... you can't explore, you can't score, you can't die ... pretty much defeat all the purposes of being a game.

So I'll review this AS a movie, not a game:

* Music and sound were good, it felt the atmosphere right.
* Graphics were good too, not much to complain apart of the noise effects, they should had the same resolution as the rest of the graphics.
* Animation was bad... humans don't walk with they legs up and down like that! They blend parts of the leg forward and backward and the walking motion cause the character height to change, go search the web for "walking animation tutorial" and do some practice first.
* Dialogues weren't very good, in some parts they felt over dramatic or badly acted, specially that the personality of the rescue team was exactly the same as the astronaut... "Oh my god..."
* Story wasn't bad, it shows that you had put some effort on it and i love to see random stuff happening instead of something predictable.

Overall, it's a good movie but clearly not a game at all (e.g. if wasn't for the misleading category i should had rated higher).

This game, in general, felt lackluster. There was very little actual "Playing" to be done, the sounds were ripped off from every single other "horror" game ever, and quite honestly simplistic animation and pixel graphics just don't work for making a horror game. There were so many grammar and spelling mistakes in the text boxes that it became incredibly obnoxious. Most of the actions the player needed to take to complete the game were utterly nonsensical and no motivation or explanation was provided for them. All in all, this seemed more like a parody of a horror game than an actual horror game.

If that's what you were going for, well, kudos I guess.
