So good! So underrated

This game was awesome to play. It's a shame its not more well known. Simple but ticks all the boxes for a great game.

You know you have crafted a good story when a character can have no personality or dialogue but still a sympathetic and deep character which is thanks to the games very well written narrator. He just seems to be analysing your every move in a very cold but caring way. The puzzles are varied and creative requiring you to use each of your abilities to overcome the obstacles and creatures. The void levels were genuinely scary because you just saw the environment in the level that you became accustomed to just disappear and the music just gave this hopeless vibe. The story is incredibly thought provoking and yeah it is pretty short but I was enjoying it so much that I didn't care. And besides that there is an option to replay the levels with redone level design these levels are harder than before but they are still quite fair and its never overdone in difficulty. This is easily one of the best games I have EVER played. If you are thinking about getting this game GET IT.

Superb, a stunning piece of interactive art.

This is so much more than a little iOS game.
It's a in-depth exploration of the psychological toll and recovery from depression. The narration is a perfect blend of introverted and third person speech, both expressing the thoughts and feelings of the lost and tortured protagonist while providing clear instruction.
This coupled with ingenuitive environment based instructions (eg. The explanation that void creatures can be stuck in mud by simply showing you as opposed to telling you) makes for a fluid and organic experience that I haven't seen on iOS before.
This is a monumental step forward in quality for the fledgling iOS gaming community.
If you are new to mobile gaming or a seasoned veteran from other platforms, this is an excellent place to start. Highly recommend.
