I really like this. Maybe I'm wrong, but I get the feeling you purposefully made the art inconsistent and varied, and that furbaby always dying also was intentional. I loved the music, I loved the collage type of feel the art of it gave off. I even felt a bit sick at "Furbaby doesn't want to live any more". To me, this hits close to home, and I love how it seems to accurately sum up, in images and sound, what I have experienced with depression and religion. This is probably something that not a lot of people can look at and.. enjoy? Unless they can understand being afraid of their own desire, suicidal, or even just desperately hopeless. Watching this was sort of like watching a scary movie for me. It brought up horrible memories but I was entertained by my own negative feelings.
Thanks for the review!
This is definately one of the best reviews I've gotten on this project
I liked this game. I enjoyed the graphics, and I liked the mix of pixels and texture, though at times the graphics made my eyes hurt. The slow movement was a major pain though. I really enjoyed the music as well!
I am transgender myself, so, personally, I believe I got the symbolism you were going for. Sometimes transitioning seems like its as difficult and distant as traveling to the moon. Sometimes you feel isolated and lost. Even when you have gathered the things you need to finally be who you are, the people you once thought to be your friends have left you behind. You still feel so isolated because they don't seem to understand. But at least you finally are yourself.
Thats what I got out of it anyway. I usually am not one to throw around "you just don't get it" but I feel that maybe a lot of the negative comments on the story are actually because they don't understand what you're trying to say. I'm not sure why some are saying this is a parody of dys4ia, as its just dealing with similar subject matter.
This game actually came out a while before sequester, if I remember correctly, on the Adult Swim website. Since playing it there I've come to love these sorts of puzzles. Whoever first thought up the physics/premise for such puzzles is a wonderful person! The graphics are also pretty awesome in this. If you have already played Sequester and enjoyed it, you'll most likely enjoy this one. Its a more colourful, funny version.
This game is really wonderful! It has just enough challenge to make it enjoyable but not frustrating, and the premise is really quite good.
The graphics are EXCELLENT. The design for the environments and the character are simplistic and appealing, and the animation is very well done. It's a cute, funny, and entertaining game. I really enjoy it, and recommend it to people who are fans of Physics puzzle games.
