Fantastic game. After playing TCoM, the story in this really hits hard. Really love the smoke mechanic, and although excruciatingly hard at times, it never felt like a chore. Really nice graphics too. Music fits really well. Perfect game IMO.
Oh and @cheezepuff, you really are an idiot for giving a negative review based on your own failings.
@radimusprime50 Great thought comparing it to Braid. I liked the puzzles far more in Braid but the story here is sooooo much better. Honestly you play the puzzles (which are frankly annoying at times) just to see what happens. And it being so mundane makes it all the more compelling
There is either a problem with the game, or my flash driver. There is just a picture of a lit cigarette that rotates. For a while, I thought that i had to click it, drag it, etc. but then it eventually became clear that i simply will not load. Yes, i understand that the cigarette is the preloader, but it is stuck. Little help please?
So, let me get this straight, shitty, shallow games with MEDALS HURR get frontpaged, and added to the art games collection, yet the amazing sequel to one of the highest rated games in said collection gets left out? Seems fair.
We need more games like this.
Wow. Bit by bit I managed to piece together the relatedness to TCOM, every now and then being tripped up, like when I realised that Henry wasn't in fact the same psychiatrist that reviews Jack at the end of TCOM. Then the Meadow became clear that it was the setting of TCOM in that he had accepted the good and the bad, but was alone in doing so. Then Jack's multiplying ability became apparent. And then... the moment when I realised I'd been here before. But now I was in Kathryn's perspective, and I didn't want to let it come true. The moment I realised that Jack had in fact gone insane left me stunned. This game is a masterpiece of delving into the human mind. Well done.
