This game is beautiful:

I didn't know what it was about at first... it slowly started to make sense. It didn't completely come together until it ended, making it all the more touching.

Try this game. It's unique, and it'll only take five minutes of your time.

So the guy dies of old age. There's another game where that happens.

3 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-12-21 22:39 ID:wJrU84RF

That's pretty good... although I didn't know you could move up and down when I played it and >>2 was so nice to ruin the general thought about it right away.

Also, if it just tried to depress me, he reached his goal. ._.

This is an "art game?" What's next, "art urinals?" Oh wait, that's already been done...

7 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-02-07 07:55 ID:9dnGu6KT

Posters on /personal/ should play this before complaining about how unfair life is treating them.

8 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-02-08 15:35 ID:6QYwnmAs

Then they'd complain that at least the game gives you a girlfriend.

9 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-02-08 23:01 ID:x7RZ8/kB

Who told you it was art? Tell that person to buzz off.

10 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-02-08 23:14 ID:CFo2cG94

It sucks.

It doesn't. But the attitude pisses me off for reasons I can't pinpoint better than saying this is artfag wankery.

Most games are art, really.

They say if you don't get it to play it again. After playing it a number of times I have the following observerations:

  1. If you're by yourself you can fit into gaps but with the woman tagging along you won't fit as easily. I take this to mean that a romantic partner prevents you doing some things in life which you wish you could do.
  2. You get score by travelling forward buy nothing for hunting for treasure; often the treasure gives a shitty score pay-out. I take this to mean that you should just go forwards in life instead of being an asshole who just collects wealth.
  3. The woman dies first, showing that life is never fair.
  4. Everyone dies in the end with no exceptions.

More arthouse bullshit by the same author:

You may proceed to touch yourself.

15 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-07 14:16 ID:Heaven

I'd rather touch the thing that keeps throwing the ball.

16 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-07 15:06 ID:JNoZ5CaB

here's another interpretation:

  1. while the layout of the game makes it look like you want to keep going forward, (to the right) there isn't anything at the end. therefore the game says that life feels like it has a point, but really doesn't.
  2. The woman, if you choose not to "collect" her, will stand there and stand there in your "youth" until she dies. Also, she always dies first. This tells me that the author believes women to be possesions, and that they should always be subservient to men. also that women are in all ways weaker and less important than men.
  3. If you hunt long enough, you can get enough treasure to get a better score than what you could have gotten just by walking forward. AND that doing so is nigh impossible with a woman. Since travelling about gives you nothing but a slow score progression, apparently this game says you SHOULD travel around and hunt for treasure (without a woman to hamper you) if you want a better score.
  4. Since the score is completely arbitrary and useless, It's just as pointless to walk around, find a woman, and hunt for treasure, so you might as well stand around and wait for the game to end. less effort, more comfortable that way.

keep in mind I don't agree with these above statements, but they are just as valid interpretations.

I lol'd hard given I never clicked you could get a woman to tag along with you in this game (only played it like three times).

Do I fail that hard? Oh god. Haha.

18 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-08 01:13 ID:Heaven

You get double score for travelling with the woman, but she gets in the fucking way.

19 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-08 13:22 ID:Heaven

They should make a girls side version where she had to stab as many guys in the back as possible before she gets old and dies.

20 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-08 19:55 ID:I2XHvYFe

> From the outset, this was going to be another autobiographical game. I hope we can all agree that the world needs more of these

It was quite beautiful, but then again I don't want to be constantly reminded of my impending death.

23 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-11 11:16 ID:Heaven

ZOMG I'm going to die! Why didn't someone tell me this sooner!

24 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-12 11:42 ID:diWU4AlD

Someone should completely assrape the whole point of these games and record a superplay.

Playing the game optimally to maximize your score and putting the recorded game up on youtube. It would be the nicest sort of "fuck you" you could give to this sort of drivel.

27 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-13 23:52 ID:Heaven

I think you'd seem more like a dumbass that didn't get the point rather than some snobby kid on the internet making a (LOL IRONIC) statement against games that have statements to make.

28 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-03-16 14:58 ID:Heaven

Just because you're too dumb to get the point of refusing the get the point of this pointless game doesnt mean this game has a point.
