I NEED MORE
This game is for people like me who are weird and need something to do. If you are in need of a mental break, here you go! You 100% forget everything that is happening outside of the game because you are trying to figure out what the heck is happening in this game. This game is so cool and fun! The only thing is, WE NEED MORE I think that there needs to be other “Levels” It is very short, but I do still find myself playing it over and over.
I love it.
“PLUG AND PLAY” is an absolutely fascinating and deep game. While it may seem short and perhaps confusing, but beneath the simplicity and minimalist animations, it is emotional. My favorite part to this game is the fact that the message or goal being delivered is very vague (if there even is one) and this allows the player or viewer to interpret the game in the way they want. Frei and Rickenbach combine amusing hand and plug animations, as well as strangely drawn figures to tell this story. To me, “PLUG AND PLAY” is about sexuality and binary, and the confusion that can come with love. In one scene, there are two figures can be seen arguing about love, and they always end up walking away from each other. Eventually, one of them ends up stating, “It hurts.” This shows that no matter what route you take in life, love and pleasure only end up causing pain. When you play this game, you will either love it or dislike it, you will either understand it or just be more confused. I definitely recommend this mind twisting game.
This game was...
I'm writing a review because I never do, and I feel like this, this game (is it even a game?) deserves one. It may be short, and it may not be what you expect, but that's the point.
It is what it is. It is what you make of it. It leaves me wanting more, and it leaves me feeling like I'm missing something crucial to the game, but I've loved it. I don't know what to write,or think about it, but I know that it has left me with something. What it is though, I don't know. You should try this game. It may make you think about your experiences in a different light. It may change your perspective on society. Or maybe you get nothing from this. But you should try it.
