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) The flow of new games has been a bit slow lately, so I'm putting badges in some older ones. Enjoy!

Under rating threshold (show) I took a shortcut on the level with lots of fragmented platforms and now I can't collect my past selves.

Under rating threshold (show) Game pretty much... isn't much fun. Concept is ok, but the game just hurts. Controls don't always respond, the timing is just preposterous... possible, but painful.

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) 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) I, too, ran into the bug where upon entering the first "Collect all your old selves" level, nobody showed up and I was unable to play any further. :\

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) 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) 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) Something needs to be changed about the jump controls. I keep getting so close to finishing and then he decides to jump in the complete wrong direction because I slightly touched the edge of something. I only beat this in the end because I was so awful at jumping the first time round.

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) 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) *ATTENTION* I and everyone else who has played this game beg you, please vote up so people can know this very important information. Taking paths from start door to end door without touching your copies is only half the game. After you reach the halfway point (which looks like the end of the game but is not), you then have to go back your same paths in reverse and purposely touch your copies to "collect" them. So make your paths so that you can NOT touch the copies on the way to the end door AND so that you CAN touch the copies on the reverse way back.

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) Really cool concept, but the schizophrenic jumping physics kind of kill it. Sometimes you find yourself unable to wall-jump, and then wall-jump off of a wall that isn't there! Anything involving jumping on/off slopes has a tendency to behave oddly, as well. In a game requiring such precision (especially in the second half), this is a glaring issue. I'll give it a 3/5, because I enjoyed it (due to the great concept) despite that significant problem with the gameplay.

Under rating threshold (show) If you jump virtually in the same spot except moving the teeniest fraction so you don't run into yourself, it's really not that hard since you can suck up the time just with jumps. Pick strategic areas to make longer jumps so as to make it easier to duck under yourself while returning to the door. Makes the collect-yourself part far easier as well.

Under rating threshold (show) This badge is great. Even its mere existence definitely made me know myself more, made me take a step back to remember why I never finished this game. And probably won't ever. Nice concept though.

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 badge shouldn't be a Medium badge, it should be an Annoying badge due to the extremely touchy jump system and pointless move and jump in place, move and jump in place requirement for completing levels. Thus, it's not a medium badge, but a tedious and annoying badge.

Under rating threshold (show) The characters really is a pain in the ass to control. You can't stop him in the air, sometimes his jumps are ridiculously small, some other times they are huge and you cross almost the entire screen in a single jump and you have to start again. This kills all the fun.

Under rating threshold (show) Easiest way to complete it, double back on yourself just run back in forth in a small section until your past selves catch up, move a bit, repeat. Still way too hard for a medium badge though.
