Under rating threshold (show) think that the last level could be kind of a metaphor for his live, I mean you basically have to create thousands of shadows and the all have to fall into the gap so the "real" person can succeed. Its like drop your past so you can go on.

Under rating threshold (show) If you wait long enough at the "The End" screen a message appears: "The shrink leaves, and suddenly I don't even have a person to tell my story to anymore." So he does remember the shrink visiting, even though in the report the shrink says that he doesn't remember any of their prior meetings.... that's so sad :(

Under rating threshold (show) This storyline is greatly moving and saddening, and provoked a very depressing emotional response from me. I was so touched upon seeing the final report that I was nearly brought to tears. This truly is a masterpiece of a game, and is nothing short of beautiful.

Under rating threshold (show) This is THE GREATEST puzze game I have EVER played. Most puzzle games are "Oh, you're stuck in this one place and you have to get from here to here." But, this game actually has an amazing storyline, with awesome mechanics (unlike most other puzzle games). This is the easiest 5/5 I've ever given. Keep up the great work!

Under rating threshold (show) a really sad story truthfully once you play it twice you understand it better and we you come to think of it try to put yourself in that situation think of what happened if you lost someone you loved (not but pulling a switch and having them fall) but as sad as the story ends it says that he says he doesn't remember him visiting but wait till after it says the end and it says "the shrink leaves and suddenly, i don't have a person to tell my story to anymore" so he does remember it happening.

Under rating threshold (show) Wow. This game is making me cry. It is an amazing game, it has a wonderful aspect and I am enjoying the puzzlement of it all. And by the way, for the people who are confused as to why more peole have earned the medium badge is because it was added before the easy one. I think.

Under rating threshold (show) After playing both games, i must conclude if to following the facts and possibly some illusory objects, Jack murdered Kathryn because after she fixed her problems (the issues in her house a.k.a life) she was moving on to the garden weeds (other peoples' issues a.k.a Jack) and this would have pulled him from his meadow of happiness. So he killed her, and afterwards realizing that she had become part of his meadow of happiness, he buried her among his problems. He struggles inward because his action has pulled him out of his meadow, and the drugs and psychology only remind him of the vivid place he has lost. I think he buried her in a green box to symbolize how she had become part of that haven. If not for the psychiatrist stating how Jack had killed Kathryn there is another possible explanation but this is following that fact.

Under rating threshold (show) If you don't get the point of the story, the entire storyline is the visit from the Psychologist. The "challenges" are pictures and objects shown to him by the Psychologist which he has to explain what it feels like and means. He's explaining to the Psychologist that it's like how his life used to be except that he's doing it all by himself instead of with Kathryn. He then goes on to explain about what happened with Kathryn, but it's unsure of how she died, probably with a challenge they did together. The green box at the end of every challenge signifies the box that he had to find to put her into. The flowers that you spawn at/checkpoint are the 2 flowers he put next to her grave. Personally, I think she died a normal death, and he just put her in the box and buried her because he couldn't handle her death. But that's just me.

Under rating threshold (show) I dare ANYONE after playing this to wholeheartedly say "video games aren't art". Beautiful, beautiful game. The accompanied music is perfect for the theme, the graphics are just enough to keep the eye appealed without distracting from the overall emotion and story. The gameplay was fun and challenging, but without being mind numbing and taking away from the experience. The level where you realized immediately that you had to kill Kathryn made my heart drop. I tried to jump on her and sacrifice myself, but to no avail, and that really tore at me. Not just watching her die, but knowing it was coming and pulling that lever to move on so selfishly. Amazing. 5/5 stars and more if I could give them.

Under rating threshold (show) It's hard to find professional games that can weave a story into the gameplay very well. This is done so well here that I'm almost astonished. Great control and an outstanding story. My only complaints are that it's short, and it could be a little more difficult. Still easily a 5/5 game. Amazing.

Under rating threshold (show) I remember the first time I played this game, I thought it was like any other. I had a feeling the name, "The Company of Myself", was meaningful, but I didn't think much of it. A few levels in, I didn't think much of the game, other than "oh this is a puzzle game, I like puzzle games".When I reached the end, I was hit head-on with a fist full of story. Saline liquids were leaking from my eyes. The music choice was incredibly fitting, I don't think I would choose anything else. Mysterious yet still quite saddening. I don't think I've played a single game (as in, a game not in a series) with so much story in such a simple design. Of course, I love this game more than any other.

Under rating threshold (show) It is not surprising to me to see that this game has been played over 3 million times. This is truly a piece of fantastic storytelling, though it seems that it takes a lot from it's counterparts such as Braid - very similar story lines, even similar look and feel to the character. Great game. Games such as these speak volumes to the idea of the "art game."

Under rating threshold (show) what I gathered from this is that he accidentally killed Kathryn, for the physciatrist clearly stated that he had murdered her, but he must have felt bad, it is obvious in the way that he tells the story that he felt horrible, and was overcome with guilt. Plus, plantig flowers on her grave is a good sign that he didn't mean to kill her, or he regrets doing it. R.I.P Kathryn. And good luck to you Jack. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) I love the concept of this game, using your ghosts to help complete a task. It felt a little short to me, I didn't realize I was at the end of the game already. I would love to see another game like this that uses the same concept but with more complex puzzles and challenges. The game was truly a blast for being so simple and the story line was pretty cool as well.
