Under rating threshold (show) once you get used to the wacky verbs, it is an enjoyable game. It reminded me of the game Loom, where you play music instead of clicking on verbs

Under rating threshold (show) okay, the girls are trying to make the boy (who honstly creeps me out) go to sleep, i think. each do this by a ... story? This could explain the transporting and stuffs. ALSO! note: all four chars are intended to be girls... maybe. The boy might be the guy who goes, And i quote "A boy says, it's too dark, it's too quiet, it's too boring and grey. i think the girls were just trying to make him sleep... but half the fun of these games is to interpet.

Under rating threshold (show) Powerful; the first chapter in particular made me connect with this game, rather unexpectedly so. Perfect if you are in a nostalgic mood, looking for something quirky and bittersweet. Plotwise, there are some rough spots, and the chapters feel disproportional but since this was intended more as a homage rather than a commercial product, it is not a fault, per se.

Under rating threshold (show) Errodrell: Are you kidding? The meaning behind this one is the most obvious of all. Did you even pay attention to the credits and the names of the women in the game? It's about the author's loved ones and remembering them. Who do you think the little boy was in every part?

Under rating threshold (show) Part of the ingenuity involved with creating a game like this is being able to convey a beautiful message in a manner that most ppl will at least be able to get a sense of. Despite being the type of player that loves these games, I was unable to discern the meaning in this endeavor, so I have to say that it is little more than a jumble of words and pictures.

Under rating threshold (show) Fairly interesting game. 3/5. I do not know what impact these 4 women had on you, but from what I gathered; they all tried (on different days, hence the changing of the moon) to help you (the game designer) to go to bed with various different means. -- I do not try to mean any disrespect as I know, as I also am attempting to write, how it feels to have your heart and soul placed out in a creative medium. As a player, I ask for an ending which will help to elaborate a bit more on the symbolism in the game; There was a quick ending, but I can't help but feel it was abrupt. It is not necessary, and if your artistic direction motivates you otherwise, no hard feelings and I completely understand.

Under rating threshold (show) A solid OK. The first chapter was excellent, but the second suffered from disconnect. This wasn't deep, but it was broad—the sheer number of things that can be interacted in so many ways is impressive. One thing seems to be the suffering from lack of message. Circular, cyclical, and familial, yes; but what's the moral here?Maybe I'm just missing it. Points for naming after loved ones.

Under rating threshold (show) I finally finished the game hoping for the giant epiphany that it seemed many comments were promising, it never happened, I'm going to play through once more and give it another shot but my initial thoughts on this game was that is was awful. The "music" was dreadful; each note more annoying than the last. The real issue I think this game has is it in no way helps the player get to where this game is coming from. I had to struggle almost every page to understand what it wanted me to do next. This flaw is quite uncommon among the "artsy" games I have played. (The Company of Myself, Limbo, etc.) Either I'd like to see more of these games just better done 2/5
