Under rating threshold (show) It was nice and fun, and certainly had a pretty nice message, but there were a few flaws in execution. Especially the music... the music just sounded too cluttered, and ended up giving me a headache when I tried finding a melody to it.

Under rating threshold (show) I really like this game; it gives me a kind of sweet nostalgic feeling. My one and only complaint is that it's annoyingly difficult to target the butterflies. 5 stars anyhow. On another note, I noticed that one of the alpha-testers is Gregory Weir... that's interesting. I can see some influence here.

Under rating threshold (show) @PumpkinDog I think you're being unfair. Remembering and forgetting are the main ways you move on to different scenes when you're reading an introspective novel. Using them in a game creates the same stream-of-consciousness sense you would get from reading a good book. I know I can't express it very well, but I get what he did and I think it's brilliant.

Under rating threshold (show) Tries so hard to be understated and poetic that it comes off a bit precious to me. Thought it was nicely structured, though, and had a consistent tone throughout. It actually got better deeper into the game, which is rare. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) That was beautiful. It took a while to learn the controls, but then I realized it was sort of a "letting go" of the usual gaming thought process which let me go from screen to screen with ease, and perform the tasks necessary to complete the game appropriately. I loved it; it was very surreal, but also hypnotically calming. The fact that you set it in Lodi, California also means a lot to me, as out there, it really is so calm and so peaceful (I lived out there for a while). What a wonderful game; it's a shame to see people complaining about it being "too random" or they're just not able to properly figure things out, and rate it poorly without giving it a proper chance. This was wonderful.

Under rating threshold (show) It was entertaining and cute little story. Poetic? Well, one might see some poetic about it too. I really do must be dead inside or other nonsense for not being emotionally moved or touched by the game. For me it was just a short game - nothing else.

Under rating threshold (show) A somewhat entertaining game which will inevitably spawn a legion of insufferable unique snowflakes who "...truly get it, man, it's deep, it speaks to my soul, y'all don't understand us introspective types. If you don't weep manly tears of joy you must be dead inside. Seriously, it's just like crystallised (insert abstract noun here)." All that aside though, I enjoyed playing it.

Under rating threshold (show) This is wonderful, and what made it even more charming was that, by coincidence, I decided to make this my last game of the evening before turning in for the night. Those who make it to the end will appreciate the sentiment.

Under rating threshold (show) Don't mind the first two comment I wrote before, I hadn't finished the whole game. This is beautiful, it went deeper than I thought it would, and the music is amazing. I love the birds level and I thought the fireflies level was long. It's a nice game, very long, which I enjoyed I didn't want it to end.
