    I wonder if they're adding anything new to it all, or if the price is right.
    It's a neat game, and I really liked it, but since it's been in a billion sales and bundles already, it feels like everyone has this already.

    Inb4 Portendo Am I doing it right?

    Anyway, didn't even cross my mind on things to get ported. I remember seeing some of this. Isn't this game pretty short?

    yup like 4 hours or so but still the narrative experience it provides is quite interesting especially with its environment story telling.

    Shit I can't remember if it was Plus or Gold that it came out for first... anyway, as a 'freebie' for those it was excellent, and a good talking point for all of its 2 hours playtime with mates (and the missus who also played it)
    ...but actually paying for a copy? Noooo thanks! And it's since been totally outclassed by Edith Finch anyway (and I'd only recommend that when it's on sale!:lol:)

    It did have an interesting story up until the end, and then it ends up being a massive disappointment because it just basically flips you off at the end of the game.

    I didn't like it at all, was like reading a book. A game should have gameplay and this doesn't.

    Yup it was more like a passive experience. Not really a game as such, more like an interactive book which is what made it interesting for me.

    Hmm...it was an interesting narrative, but not really much more than that. The game is relatively old, runs on a potato, has been ported to consoles before, has been in multiple humble bundles and has been in a free giveaway at least once. More importantly: due to its nature, it's one with a limited player base and almost no replayability whatsoever. So I'm honestly wondering: why? Honestly: aside from it being a tech demo for their later game (Tacoma), I really don't see anyone buying it.

    No. Sorry, but I have to disagree on that.
