Under rating threshold (show) I find it interesting how many people either ended up ignoring the other dots or avoiding them. I did the same. It reflects on an actual practice we see with social situations. Outcasts learn to remain outcasts without attempting to establish relationships.

Under rating threshold (show) Thank you for the powerful dialog you’ve created with this simple nongame. Your game not only made me experience deep and sorrowful loneliness, but also made me think about my feeling, observe all the stages it was coming through. At first, I was driven by interest. I was interested in knowing what will happen, if I approach the group. Then, I was driven by desire to test my luck. I approached every new group and tried to become part of it. Then I figured a simple pattern: every group I approach disappears. I started avoiding new groups altogether. But still, my curiosity was itching, so occasionally I approached them – only to meet same disappointment. Finally, I made a suggestion that eventually my dot will disappear – and this turned out to be true.

Under rating threshold (show) very relaxing, and a great message. in a way, it kind of puts you in the shoes of the lonely and helps you empathize.

Under rating threshold (show) 'Loneliness’ has much in common with 'Loved' by Alexander Ocias - also not a game, but an interesting interactive short story. 'Loneliness' is an interesting interactive poem: the inability to reach your goal, i.e. touching other squares, is a metaphor for futility, one that can't be achieved in any other medium because it works by subverting the gamer's expectation that there is a "point" to what they're doing. But 'Loneliness' is so small that it can neither succeed nor fail. As an experiment in expression, sure, it succeeds - and there's a place for experimenting with expression, e.g. the dream sequences in 'Max Payne'. But it can’t fail because its only goal is to tell you what loneliness is, not what to do about it. There's 2 ways of dealing with loneliness: being emo; and being metal. Be metal. Don't dwell on how much loneliness sucks (which is the message of 'Loneliness', since it has no other message). Make art. Make music. Play 'Costume Quest'. It's awesome!

Under rating threshold (show) This was interesting. Near the end I didn't try to join the other dots anymore. I walked straight through the groups and didn't wait to see if they saw me.

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) This is literally one of the simplest games that i have ever played, but it is the greatest. If your like me, someone who has been very lonely, its really a soul-searcher game and can make you think just how realistic it is..

Under rating threshold (show) dude its not meant to be super special its supposed to convey a message. but your view on it is your view "i may not agree with what you are saying, I will defend to the death your right to say it" Voltaire.

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) What I like best about this was that it made me keep trying. Even though I knew the chances were slim that one of those blocks was going to stay close to mine...I kept trying every time. It made me think about my real life, how no matter how dark the world gets, or how lonely I feel, I must keep trying, no matter what.

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) 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) I liked the ambience of the original flash game (if you know what I mean) and it creates a setting where the portrayal of the overall message is stronger. But playing it on Kong is nice too and no message is destroyed :) Beautiful game.

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) 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.
