Great game 👍🏼👍🏼

I almost gave up during the first 10 minutes of playing due to the weird controls, but I’m glad I didn’t. It’s not very often that a game this good comes along. Once I got used to the controls and navigation, I really enjoyed playing. I like that it had a story, but no long boring dialogue. My only complaint is that the ending seemed a bit abrupt and I was left wondering about parts of the story.

Great Puzzle Game with Tiny Flaws

The Almost Gone is a great puzzle game with a dark and interesting story. The only things in the game that really bugged me were the absence of a minimap that shows the whole level, and a part of a specific puzzle in which the spot a certain item (laser pointer) is supposed to go isn’t obvious. The vast majority of the puzzles in the game make sense, and many are quite satisfying to solve. The visuals are pleasing to the eye and never distract from how puzzles need to be solved. The visuals also contribute to the intrigue of the story. I was startled by the sound effects at times, and they sometimes feel a bit jarring when the game often doesn’t have a lot of noise going on. To be fair I do get startled somewhat easily, and the sound effects also sometimes brought attention to parts of puzzles. Turning down the sound effect volume preemptively isn’t a bad idea if you’re startled easily like I am. Overall a worthwhile puzzle game that has a few issues that aren’t huge and can probably be fixed by updates.

Did I miss something?

So, first of all, this game is beautiful. The location design, the satisfying, immersive puzzles, the emotive music - all testify to the great care taken to create this game. I can’t say enough about it in that regard.

Now, about the narrative. There was SO MUCH potential in this dark, complex, emotional, and moving story. BUT.

I have no idea what happened in the end.

Did I miss something? Or is it open-ended by design? (Please, I hope not.) Everything else screams that a lot of deliberate effort went into making this game - which is why I think it’s me that doesn’t get it, because I just can’t fathom you guys putting so much hard work into everything else, only to turn half-hearted and end the game in such an underwhelming, ambiguous way.

Please help me understand this story. I know it’s probably pathetic to ask that, and I’m sorry for not understanding it on the first go like everyone else seems to. But I would really, really like to know how you intended the story to be interpreted. It would mean a lot.

Other than that, this game is the one of the best I’ve ever played. Thank you for taking the time to make it.
