Rated 5 / 5 stars

I have long sought to find a secret brown or greenartifact in the hope of balancing NYX and SOL ...^^ (like the in the level's bottom, the symbol with a green center above the meta-golem is supposed to represent a third force ? thus, it's lacks a lost artefact for really balacing the 6 orbs ? this is the green thing or the brown in the center of the golem ?)
Maybe this is a message that the conflict is inevitable and peace is impossible because it's too late ?

Thus,I think that the "mixed blessing" ending + oasis and desert bloom is the best choice because it does not creat an eternal night or eternal day. (i don't think this is good for the Life on this planet)
It's a shame to don't be able to stop the conflict and NYXians will massacre SOLlians but at least the monstruous machine who can brokes the world's balance is broken; this is "just" a human tragedy and not the end of the planet's Life.
The world already seems a little unbalanced in favor of SOL (It's burns many things) but maybe with the Oasis and Desert will not being so hard; i hope.

very original loved the perspective, great job!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I really like this game. The perspective of camera is interesting, graphics are simple but the game still looks nice and although you are practically just collecting orbes and solving mini puzzles it sucks you in with it's mysteriousness.

The concept of light and shadow with sun's interaction with your items is great. The only thing the game lacks is story. People tells you a lot, but not enough to decide which side you will support. But maybe it is intended to be like that. After all, it could ruin the player's experience as a stranger.

Really cool with the use of perspective- I had no idea what I was doing. Though after the first play through I realize after 10 seconds of sunlight destroys my item- looking back on it, I was too busy trying to read what everyone was saying to even notice. Love the style, the play on light and shadow- I don't get the story but whatever- LOOKS GREAT!
