Under rating threshold (show) This is a beautiful way to help people, especially the younger audiences read poetry. I love the concept, and it was beautiful how there were letters in the background that helped progress the story. I would to love to see more stories and poems available in this format. Truly a lovely game... wait, did i miss a letter D: . A+, I mean 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) so the "powerful" words are very annoying because they can be reset. Also if you are about to touch one and it shots its letters at you it completely messes everything you did up. Also can we get more of a heads up to whats ahead of us? I always get hit by powerful words mecause I run into them because I cant see them.

Under rating threshold (show) Definitely enjoyed the reading, and the music. My only complaint would be that at times the powerful words would be nigh-impossible to see and would ambush you. Besides that, wonderful game.

Under rating threshold (show) Ok, I take it back, for some sections having to retouch words did get annoying. Just get rid of the powerful words or have them stay bright the whole time.

Under rating threshold (show) There is only one thing keeping this game from being great and it's the "powerful words." I can read while platforming. I cannot read and notice a faint red word floating in from off screen. I didn't mind having to touch some words again, but losing the ability to get an A+ because I touched something I could barely see even if I wasn't reading was not cool. Fortunately, I don't really care about the rank but some players might. Why I don't like it from a game design perspective is I now question your objective in making the game. Was it to make a platformer or was it to present great writing in a creative way? You do the latter (I love the words flying by whenever a sandstorm is mentioned in "nameless city") but this mechanic can get in the way. I will note that it was only a problem when they were on the same level as where i was walking. I didn't have this issue when they were stacked vertically.

Under rating threshold (show) I'd have much rather had the powerful words in their own seclusive levels, or an option to not have them, as it many times get in the way of the reading.

Under rating threshold (show) I rather think there should be a story mode-or version, if you prefer-and a poetry one. I found The Nameless City...awesome, and the poetry a bit boring.

Under rating threshold (show) Do not all words hold power? Though it would make such a game impossible, it seems wrong to deny the majority of the words in this game the power they truly possess. Though, the comments of those who have played and loved this game perhaps attest more deeply to the power of these words than any mechanic.

Under rating threshold (show) i love it :) but is there not an impossibility in getting an A+ for every level? the speed-things seem to be locked, and i found one word one can not highlight: in the unnamed city part 1, "footholes in a *preciptous* _descent_ " (* ... * being a red word, and _ descent _ below being the non-reachable word)

Under rating threshold (show) To turn such art into such a game is truly a remarkable way of getting priceless scriptures out there to the masses. I saw a few poems I havn't seen before, and that was a marvelous feeling to gain, especially when I expected to head to kongregate and attain far less wholesome entertainment.

Under rating threshold (show) I really enjoy the poetry, Especially The Nameless City. The music, and the words and backgrounds really set the mood. It makes it more enjoyable to read, and makes it even easier to get sucked into the poems and stories.

Under rating threshold (show) OH COME ON! Just make them powerful words visible, will you? Honestly, it annoyed the hell out of me to be killed without even knowing what happened! You don´t expect me to MEMORIZE the places of these powerful words, now do you?

Under rating threshold (show) Is it actually possible to get 100%? I am currently ranked at no 4 in the world (trying like hell to get to at least number 3) but for the life of me I can not figure out how to get to "descent" on The Nameless city part 2, part three I'm struggling with just because of the length and the powerful words- but at least there I can hit all of them. N.B no one else has seemed to get 100% on all of them otherwise they would have 10,000 instead of 9,998. Anywho! I think this is a great game, it’s very well made, I love the "little sighing sandstorm" and all of the visual cues that help you to really FEEL the story; I think the best made one is Alice in wonderland. and yes people some of them are a hell of a lot longer than the poems, that’s part of the fun, it takes at least 3 hours to get nameless city part 1 done 100%-and its taken me at least 4 days to get it all there, apart from part two and three, god my eyes are hurting, back to the small steep steps for me! Going on day five

Under rating threshold (show) Some of the levels are just too long. I got frustrated and stopped even trying to read the text or highlight all the words 'cause I just wanted to be done with it. I also wish there was a way to pause the game mid-level. Also, it was annoying that I couldn't tell the difference between black space that I could stand on and black space that would kill me.

Under rating threshold (show) In the nameless city I fell between 'sandstorms had long effaced' and 'any carvings which may have.' It respawned me inside the word 'had' and I'm thusly unable to move. I do love coming back to play this game but it does have occasional bugs in respawning. Still love it though :)

Under rating threshold (show) I love the concept of this game. It is a very minimalist appearance, with no fancy backgrounds or effects. It really gives you a chance to read great literature, (Huge H.P Lovecraft junkie.) While being able to have fun while doing it. The effects, such as moving words, and word collage backgrounds really adds depth to the game. Plus the level design is very well thought out and the "Powerful words" idea is wonderful and makes the game much harder. Thanks so much for the 2 hours I spent playing this, Gregory.

Under rating threshold (show) Very unique game. Love the way the background matches what your reading. The "deadly" words is a nice tough that adds a little challenge to this gem. You should make a sequel with more poems and great works of literature, and give the players an option to build their own levels with their own works. Fantastic game, unique concept, great written word choices all around superb.
