Under rating threshold (show) When Jack talks about the short stubby refrigerator he is alluding to the green "boxes" or doors in Company of Myself. It's green because it's "Eco-friendly too." This is the box that Kathyrn is buried in (as revealed in CoM). There are so many subtle connections. Great game - not because of the puzzles (which are fun and challenging) but because of the message. This games actually has something to say and it says it. Much appreciation

Under rating threshold (show) SPOILER ALERT! for the "Blowing Smoke Ring" badge, i know some people are having trouble finding a way to hit the EHUP thingy. to hit the ting in the top part of the scene, blow a smoke ring and run after it right after you blow it. it makes a huge difference in the distance. Rate to keep this comment ALIVE!

Under rating threshold (show) Very clever and thought-provoking game. You might think that it's promoting smoking, but if you play for a little while you'll realise that it's really not. Don't play this if you just want action, though...

Under rating threshold (show) After a few tries at the EHUP to no avail, I decided that the pont of the puzzle was that it was impossible, and you just need to let some things go. Feeling satisfied, I went downstairs with the doctor and completed the story. Only after I looked at the badge list did I realize I'm just bad at puzzle games.

Under rating threshold (show) Say what you will about "platfomers with meaning," but I always appreciate one that can deliver it's message in a way that comes across genuine. This is certainly one of those games, and I can relate in a lot of respects to Kathryn's issues, as well as the psychologist's insights. I appreciated this games message a great deal, and the game it was framed around wasn't too shabby, either, however difficult it may have been in some levels. Overall, an enjoyable, and personal, experience.

Under rating threshold (show) That ending which tied the loose ends of the first game. That alone is brilliance. You made a wonderful game. The only suggestion I can think up is a Quality option. (The rain in the Swamp lagged the game quite a bit, making it difficult to time smoke rings.)

Under rating threshold (show) Whoever wrote the storyline for this game is a f***ing genius! this is absolutely incredible! Music fits perfectly, the whole 'solving your problems with smoking' metaphor, and that last level. honestly for the last two or three chapters i sat there in silence with a bit of a cold shiver, this is nothing short of brilliant!

Under rating threshold (show) This game has done something unexpected for me. I've played many of these 'art' games, and I enjoy them a lot. But this game actually managed to make me feel the exact emotion of the character. At the end of chapter 3, when she says that (trying to be spoiler free here), time sort of just froze for me for a few seconds. That '...' in Kathryn's speech bubble. That was just what went through my head. It truly made me feel like my emotions were in sync with Kathryn's. That is no small accomplishment for a game. Well done.

Under rating threshold (show) Spoilers ahead. I dont believe that jack murdered kathryne. First of all, he forgot about the day immediatly after getting back to real world from dream world. Secondly, he was mentally ill, but he was not a mad blood seeking psycho, more of it, he never hurted anyone. Lastly, quote from 2DArray response to shout: "The implication from the first game’s flashback is that Kathryn dies in her last room (or, in game-world terms, she falls into a bottomless pit). Now remember that Fixation introduces “safe” pits in chapter 3, and some levels have both safe and bottomless pits next to each other. Both types of pits look the same to us, and we learn from Kathryn that the differences between them aren’t necessarily clear to the characters, either. What if Jack just didn’t piece together what happened until later, after the game ended?".

Under rating threshold (show) Someone made a comment saying that it would be cooler if the creators had just let people figure out the connection between this and Company of Myself. In a way, I agree with them. It would have been an interesting connection for the community to make, and an OMG moment for many. But myself? I'm not sure I would have made the connection myself. When he "multi-tasked" I'm not sure that I would have realised it was the same as CoM, even then, same creator, same ideas, possibly just a little nod to their other game. And lets face it, I can't remember the names of my co-workers, let alone characters from a game... even one like Company of Myself. So honestly, if they Hadn't told me it was a prequel, all those moments that connected the two, wouldn't have meant anything. And that moment at the end... you know the one, it wouldn't have made me want to cry.

Under rating threshold (show) *probably contains "the company of myself" SPOILER* As far as I see it: Jack does remember Kath, he just doesn't remembering him meeting her this day, due to the effect of drugs. He doesn't remember killing her either. It has been much more than just one day, as far as I see it of course. He tells you about him meeting Kath in "the company of myself", but then he doesnt remember killing her either. Somehow it feels like there is a large missing part of the puzzle to the story, even knowing the story of tcom.
