Under rating threshold (show) I liked it... I think it is a true work of minimalistic art with wonderful storytelling... I got more out of 5 notes than half of a movie could explain. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Absolutely loved this game. I think that this... creature that you are following was always like this. Remember the notes about his "eye", not eyes. He also makes a comment on your disability, i.e. your lack of tentacles. In my opinion, they are one and the same, just the friend was more fit for the aquatic environment.

Under rating threshold (show) At first I thought the letter-writer was supposed to have committed suicide. Then I thought that perhaps we were the letter-writer ourselves, and have just been wandering around that long. I'm not sure what I think now with the squid.

Under rating threshold (show) i liked this the entire time i was thinking that the ending would be something like this but the whole disability thing was still nice. he keeps saying how with your disability it would be hard with your character not realizing that its not a disability just a different set of abilities

Under rating threshold (show) There really needs to be an artistic section for games like this. Sure, these games may not be particularly appealing for those who want their games with more action, but for those seeking the deeper meaning of games, especially the ones that leave unanswered questions in the end, an organized archive would be useful. Maybe I just like a change from all the front page TD's and RPG's, but I love these games.

Under rating threshold (show) This was a short game. But, I enjoyed every second that it spent. Absolutely loved the notes, and I dived into that final pool without any thought, but I wished I'd savoured it. Thus, I played it once again. And it's NOT many games I play a second way through. Good job, I absolutely adore this game.

Under rating threshold (show) This is a truly wonderful game. I don't think you should change how long you should hold your breath at all.Though not very long, I really enjoyed this game. Maybe make it a little longer and it would be perfect. The story is great and I had a lot of fun swimming from note to note. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) people are saying that a squid or octopus jumped in the pond. that may be right, but i think that they were pherhaps friends (kids, not kid and octopus) and one jumped in the pond only to find a huge underwater cavern. he journeyed all the way to the end where he waited so long for his friend to catch up. by the time you find him. he has waited so long that he turned into an octopus. in one way it sounds weird but in another it seems reasonable.

Under rating threshold (show) This game just shows you that it doesn't matter if the artwork, or game itself is simple. It's really the story that matters. That's why this is a good game. Just wish it were longer.

Under rating threshold (show) Spoiler: I think that this is better than even newer games i have played. it has a really great storyline! If you were confused about the ending, the friend was the squid. Hence the "my eye" and the disability was that the person couldnt hold his breath forever, but his friend could! Awesome! 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) I think perhaps the friend and you were childhood friends who grew apart during life, you following the traditional life and your friend staying in childish, which made him lonely but still happy.

Under rating threshold (show) I love what you did with the 10 second theme. I don't even know if it was possible to drown because you spaced everything so well that I always got to air just in time (still preserved that frantic feeling though). Slow reveal, indirect storytelling. Really splendid all around.

Under rating threshold (show) Very well told story for how little context was given. If you animated your person to age over time, it wouldve been an amazing effect. 5/5, a short but entertaining story.
