"In an interview with El Pas, Mr Molyenux described his new game as an experience never seen before, bound to captivate us in just five seconds: It can be understood at a glance, and it entertains the idea of communication beyond words, by means of music, art, and so on."


Downloaded it. It is very pretty....checking the soft-launch thread, one of the last posts has a bunch of criticisms. We will just have to see...

Cool game but it appears I have become stuck. It wants me to equip a simple bandana but I do not have it.

I played for a couple of hours and enjoyed it. Came back a few hours later and I had to start over. It didn't save my progress.

So far....

I like it! Not feeling burned like with most of his other titles. I think it helps that there was zero hype around this one.

Hard to disappoint when one goes in with no expectations! 😉

Serious observation: The way it handles multiplayer is interesting and the apparent customization intrigues me. Also the durability of items is a nice touch, IMHO, and so far I have not felt any pressure around the IAPs.

The icon reminds me of Brian Edward's "Americas". They look extremely similar. http://i.imgur.com/wYbByAh.jpg

Either way, I dig the concept; surprised I hadn't heard of this game before. Gonna try it out soon.
