Wow.

This game is just a zen meditation with some of the most beautiful art, endearing music. This is like happiness in an app.

I've never felt more at peace and happy playing a game. I could best compare this to Spaceplan in its subverting of genres, where spaceplan was a clicker that wasn't a clicker, this is kind of a point and click that's not a point and click.

Where spaceplan was witty, funny and absurd, this is heartfelt, endearing and full of love and simplicity.

There are no words. It's a game that lives up exactly to its title. It is nothing more and it doesn't need to be.

There is a game there, and it's a very good one albeit very threadbare, but it all just works. It's wonderful. There's so much polish on it, but it always feels close. It doesn't feel like it's looking down on us, we are there with it.

Do not go on expecting deep gameplay or a written story. You won't find one, the game is simply focused on your journey and allows you to reflect on life.

Especially if you're getting older like me, this is a must get.
