Under rating threshold (show) Good game, but truly annoying. I used to like my old selves -while I was playing The Company of Myself- but this game made me hate them.

Under rating threshold (show) I love how the second part of the game was tailored exclusively to my in-game actions. I had to re-engage with my own play style and I was like, "wow, really? wtf did I do that?" Which, of course, is part of the theme of the game - self-reflection. Really a masterwork of a game.

Under rating threshold (show) There needs to be a reset button. It's a small hassle to have to run into my own clone to restart when I mess up, and on the second half there was a glitch where the orange people didn't show up and I had to start all the way over.

Under rating threshold (show) It's embarrassing playing this game for the first time in public. When I collided with my past self and died for the first time, I made the mistake of yelling out "OMG. I CAN'T TOUCH MYSELF." I don't think I'm welcome in Starbucks anymore.

Under rating threshold (show) The trick is to run around in a small section of the map, then move slightly beside that, so that your past self can't reach you, repeat until time runs out.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice idea, but awful controls and buggy with no save game. It's deeply frustrating to get past some difficult levels just to find you're stuck and can't progress further without restarting.

Under rating threshold (show) It's really rare that a game is great. A great game presents interesting, fun, and unique gameplay all at once. For every hundred crappy games, there's a good one, and for every hundred good games, there's a great one. For a game to have interesting, fun, and unique gameplay, but also have a theme which actually means something, have an emotionally meaningful point, and completely change the player's conception of the game is something else. This game is completely unlike anything I've ever played, and I thank you for it.

Under rating threshold (show) Wow..Greg actually speaks. The flow has been a bit slow lately? Well if you want to put it in those terms..sure, it's been "slow". It's nice to see you at least doing something about it finally. There's thousands of good games that could be badged. This is a good start to getting back what this place used to be Greg.

Under rating threshold (show) The controls for this game simply do not work. I appreciate the effort, but for once I would like for the character to jump when I tell him to and in the direction I want.

Under rating threshold (show) As much as I truly do enjoy hearing the five second clip you found for free over and over and over and over, I can't even begin to comprehend why a Flash game wouldn't have a mute button. And how do you make a platformer that has jump controls this bad? Easy 1/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Actually if you haven't figured out the simplest system to beat each level, stand still jump 3x and move, repeat, run to the exit when it lights up. Done.

Under rating threshold (show) So many times, an arrow key that was working fine would suddenly send my careening back in the opposite direction, causing me to fail a level. It would be all too kind to call the wall jumping mechanics "flimsy", as stated in a previous comment.

Under rating threshold (show) I really love the idea. The controls and certain levels just kill it for me. I mean. Maybe not kill it, but certainly take it from something I'd really enjoy to something that just kills time at this point. The wall jumps are not stable, the controls are clunky, and certain levels (compounded with these control problems) make the game more frustrating than enjoyable. If I know how to beat a level and the controls are holding me back, then that's just not fair on your part. 3/5.

Under rating threshold (show) A game about looking back at yourself. Your screw ups and mistakes lead your future. Like in real life. You screw up one thing, you never look back on your mistakes unless you want to fix them. Like this you have to avoid your mistakes to go back to where you started. Truly a meaningful and sad game.

Under rating threshold (show) That was one of the most interesting games I've ever played! It was fun to just run around a level for a while just to see how long I could keep it up! Thumbs up to the creator. And even as I was enjoying running around like a madman, the music kept everything in the mood, giving me an almost introspective feel. Again, thumbs up to the creator!

Under rating threshold (show) Never repeat past mistakes, never look back, never over complicate life, always keep moving forward towards your goal, in time all good things will come. Just a few of the many lessons this beautiful game touches on. These are things that we must all learn (via trial and error) throughout life.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is just... I don't know... truthful. I don't consider this to be a game at all. This is a learning process, not a game. It teaches you to let go of your past, but only YOU can decide to, not someone else. I was amazed at the second part of the game, where everything that he said reverses and all comes together and how you go collect the past to move on. Also amazing music! Thank you Armor Games! I cried at this game. It's beautyful.
