Under rating threshold (show) Extra Credits (The show) brought me here. You have just taught me a new way to look at a valuable more in life, friend. Regardless of anything, you are here and this is your place in the world. There will always be an opportunity for something; anything. Unfortunately for many, the opportunity doesn't go as hoped. But even then, when that opportunity has past, a new one will appear. Just keep trying to find the next one, and then the next one, and eventually you will find something. Y'know, it may not be what you expect - perhaps even nothing you hoped for - but if you listen just as much as you hope to be heard, you will find something you hardly knew you wanted in the first place. In the end, all is well. Always.

Under rating threshold (show) It's funny how a game so simplistic can convey so much meaning. Not in the story itself, but in the fact that you write the story as you play it. The meaning is different for everyone, because it relies on how you play it to be a meaningful experience. Because every way to play it is a meaningful experience, because it explains how you deal with loneliness. Definitely needs better ratings. This teaches such a valuable lesson in game design that many overlook. The fact that Video Games are a way to tell a story about yourself. That it's YOUR experience, not the main characters.

Under rating threshold (show) I really like this, I don't think it deserves its low score at all. It's a game that can trigger some soul-searching. It isn't over-complicated at all- plenty of flash games I enjoy because they're complicated enough to drown out my sadder thoughts, but this helped me to engage with them. 5/5 from me.

Under rating threshold (show) The funny thing is, that eventually, I ended up avoiding all the groups so as not to disturb their unique patterns. Just watched them as I walked by. Brought me a little too close to my middle school memories. :P

Under rating threshold (show) All I wanted in the end was for one of the squares to hug me, and not run away... I just wanted one to stay... D'=

Under rating threshold (show) Ok. I wasn't too impressed with this until I realized that I had begun deliberately avoiding other squares because I knew it was futile and didn't want to ruin their pretty patterns. I think the metaphor therein nets this game at least a little respect.

Under rating threshold (show) Near the end of this game there were squares by themselves yet they still run away. They would rather play by themselves than with me

Under rating threshold (show) I imagined I was the alpha square of my territory, driving away competing squares. By the end, I was quite pleased with my handiwork! Guess this game is a matter of perspective.

Under rating threshold (show) Today, a bunch of pixels arranged to look like random squares in a screen punched me in the face and made me think about myself and my life. I dare you, I double dare you to play this and keep believing games are not art.

Under rating threshold (show) Never thought I could be so affected by a little pixel game. The sad thing is, I really did feel lonely in real life. I kept thinking "Why do they keep moving away? I'm just like them. Do they not like me? Is there something wrong with me?" It's a very deep message for such a simple game. Keep it up man.

Under rating threshold (show) Wow, I guess I was one of the ones who went to every group, hoping it would accept me. None did. That's horrible. I'd never want that in real life

Under rating threshold (show) Interesting. There is something strangely compelling about a game that cannot be won; especially one as simple as this. Great message. Some people need to understand that interactive experiences take different forms, and any of them can be valuable. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) As of the while writing this comment I am taking a short break from making my own video about the fact that while video games have the ability to become art, few if any have reached that level just yet. This game about squares, is without question art. perhaps not the first game to become art but one of the very few clear examples of it.

Under rating threshold (show) Kinda feels like, when you've been unaccepted or left by a certain amount of squares... you just feel like you want the game to be over. Kind of like how lonely people may feel about life...

Under rating threshold (show) Featured on Extra credits again :D I agree with them it totally is a game and I really liked it. ALL of you NEED to play Timeframe, especially if you enjoyed this. Timeframe is the most emotional game I have played in a while and it is 10 minutes long

Under rating threshold (show) This is about (obviously, guys!) South Korea, where intense education blocks teens' humanity and morality to grow and mature. Due to that and 'Izimae' culture of Japanese - which refers to phenomenon of isolating a single or a few students in school (damn Japan... S.Korea have been affected by so many wrong cultures due to Japan's colonisation of S.Korea. S.Korea became independent again in 1945.), many teens in S.Korea suffers and even commits suicide. One among four students is said to have experienced this. :(

Under rating threshold (show) after I saw they were running away from me, I supposed that in the end there will be a withe one waiting just for me, the right one... but only if the game doesn't show it, it doesn't means it is not there! You only need to wait for it.

Under rating threshold (show) i found myself in tears at the end and having a korean background made it more relatable to people this just shows that we should accept all and for those people who say this is a party game or it is just weird you are wrong this is a game based on a real person who had trouble making friends because he/she was different i don't know how it got such a low score i rate it a 100/5

Under rating threshold (show) I don't usually type these. But it's my last day of my university lease and I've just said goodbye to my closest friend. It's a deep moment, we'll never sit together again in a room that we both call home. Everything we've known of eachother will just fade, just like everything else around us has.

Under rating threshold (show) This is one of the most beautiful games that has ever been uploaded to Kongregate. It is not "Beautiful" in the sense of physical beauty. Nor is it "Beautiful" because of it's controls, music (Even though it is quite spectacular) or its simplicity. It is beautiful because it has MEANING. Something far too many things in this world seem to be lacking... 5 stars...

Under rating threshold (show) It reminded my my childhood, when I was smaller, it hitted me like a rock, reminded me what loneliness is. But like I always do, I tend to deal with sad things in a very amusing way/laughing about it to wash away these feelings, even now, I played it again and played bittersweet symphony in the background and walked stright throw them all the way :P
