Great “experience” more so than a game.

Updated: The devs appear to have worked out the issue so I have updated my score back to original 4 stars. As a buyer of the original game, the below is true about the first story that is now for free for everyone. I was initially irritated after the last update as it broke the game for me. The second episode now works properly so I will be playing through that shortly. I don’t expect it to be very long either but if the below review is any indication of the quality then it should be good.

Original review of the first episode: So the game is short. Period. No shying away from that fact.

With that said, unlike a lot of other players I found some solid meaning of relationship and fear relating to day to day life here.

The idea of being so wrapped up with life that you forget family and meaningful relationships really resonated with me as up until recently, I was a lot like the main character (minus the supernatural dream business).

If you can get past the short length and linear story which is the reason for the 4 stars and not 5, this game is great. Awesome graphics with a really great style in both the visuals and soundtrack.

I really enjoyed this story and what the devs were looking to portray. Really hit home with me and gave me a feeling of joy for the people that I have lost in my life recently and for those that I have let slip into the ether. Great experience more so than a game.

Hi rapaleeman,
there was another mistake not allowing to get for free for those who bought later on December 1. We fixed it in the latest update 1.3.2


Great Game, Awful Business Model

I really enjoyed the 20 minutes I was able to play this game. The art is great, the world is engaging, the gameplay is decent, and the dialogue is...ok. The thing is, you need to purchase “tickets” to be able to play, which are expensive and you need to do this every time you die, otherwise you get locked out for an hour before getting a single ticket after watching an ad. You will then immediately die and be right back where you were, not playing. I have never seen such an absurd model in any other game in my last decade of games. If each story were individually priced similar to Life is Strange, with bonus items or content available through micro transactions this would be a 4.5 star game easy. I understand games are expensive to make, and I gladly purchase micro transactions in games where you get additional value for your money such as ES:Blades, but when your business model directly discourages actually playing the game, I’m simply going to do that; not play. As others have mentioned, even if you get the $3.99/month subscription for unlimited tickets, you still need to purchase more expensive items to be able to actually make decisions and progress, again directly discouraging actually playing the game. I had very high hopes for this game, and for a gleaming moment it realized them, before slapping their anti-player business model in my face.

Neat idea...but really better off skipping

The first adventure is really really good if I were rating it off if just that it would be a four or five but the second adventure you lose a bit of immersion in the puzzles by essentially being handed a ‘skip puzzle’ button for puzzles that are probably the most enjoyable part. After the first time you then are asked to buy them. In the second adventure also you are allowed a companion at the beginning but then have to pay to keep them. The third adventure takes any illusion of choice away from you, you can either pay the in game currency for a logical decision or do increasingly stupid things offered for free. The fourth story follows this premise and this is as far as I go it feels like a cheap money grab every decision you make.

That being said the graphics are lovely and the sound effects aren’t half bad.
In as far as the plots go the first has a relatable protagonist struggling with something we all do. The second is a bit more niche but still overall good. The third honestly I think I hated possibly because this is where they lost the illusion of choice but I also found the protagonist rather annoying (you’d be better off skipping the third one entirely). I have not yet finished the fourth but as it stands it’s set up to follow the third.
The controls are a bit clunky but workable.
