Under rating threshold (show) As an experiment, I'd say this was pretty successful. But I was expecting a lot more. Maybe this will be developed into a full-fledged experience later. I could definitely see G.W. turning this into something...maybe waking up each day a little more insane with everything slightly more warped than before? Who knows...we'll just have to wait and see!

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say that I love your work. Even though this was a test, it made me feel as though I was all alone in the real world. Just checking for other forms of life. You are a true master at manipulating (not in a bad way) peoples feelings. Please continue to make these games for us.

Under rating threshold (show) I was so disappointed when I couldn't leave the crater. Oh well. I was however very impressed on the quality of the whole structure, especially since it was just put together and then left empty and used for just looking at. It had a very isolated feel to the whole thing, and for what it was, I liked this game/experiment.

Under rating threshold (show) That beacon was a lot further away than I thought it was! Finally, a game that I can play with my little sister for the joy of 3D... I wish more people made non-violent 3D games. The only other one I did with her was Portal. Can't wait for Portal 2. Anyway, great job on atmosphere, I loved the plant room at the beginning, the nice touch with putting on the space suit and the breathtaking moment you see all those gorgeous stars.

Under rating threshold (show) Very good game, I have been a fan of your's Gregory since "The Majesty of Colors" and your games have always interested me, you're one of those developers that help the argument that games, can indeed be a form of art.

Under rating threshold (show) Unexpected ending, actually. and sad in a way. In the beginning I also had this strange feeling like something would suddenly stand right infront of me. But instead, it was just me, all alone. Don't know what one I would find worse in that situation. Anyhow, loved it. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Excellent game. Short, but understandable considering you're using new technology. I've always liked your games. You're extremely capable of instilling emotions through them. I hope Unity helps you realize some of the ideas in your head. Until next time!

Under rating threshold (show) I like how in this game, you can fill in your own story. Whether it's that he's the last survivor of a virus on a remote surveillance station on an asteroid, or part of a dying space colony whose job is to check the beacon for a ship every day, or... fill in the rest. and the lack of an end allows you to decide what happens to him/ her. Although games like this do feel very, the best way I can put it, empty. It feels like more of an idea than a complete game. But if you add a storyline you lose the open-ended feel. It's all about balance. Personally I think there should have been small notes or clues along the way. But that's all preference. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Great atmosphere. All your games are brilliant, especially in terms of atmosphere. Some suggestions with this particular game/type (I don't know if they're possible in Unity, but if so here they are): in-game mouse sensitivity controls. My mouse was WAY too reactive, and messing with my computer settings didn't help. Also the option of a full-screen mode should be added in-game. Being able to be immersed in the game world would be much easier if it were full-screen.

Under rating threshold (show) Simply amazing. It's rare to find a Unity game that tells a story without blurting out to many words. The architecture was beautiful, but the game was too short. I would have loved if you had added more. But it's hard to find a nice look-around Unity game. So congrats on making that possible for me.
