Well, Steam is currently @0.79, but I know that even if I buy it on steam, Ill never open it.

Premium title, outstanding reviews, ported to iOS. Im completely in in principle, the one thing Im unsure of is whether or not this is for me. Adventure games dont usually press my buttons. But given the paucity or premium titles this week, and this ones steam reviews...

If youre worried its a point and click adventure title, dont be. Its basically a walking simulator with light puzzle elements. Thats not a bad thing mind you...its an experience worth checking out.

I mean, its a single man developer team who took time out of his schedule developing a sequel to revamp an existing title that was too cheap (in price, obviously) in the first place. I gladly forked over those extra 4 bucks without any hesitation and I own the original, but hell...I mean if you want the experience without the new bells and whistles, the original is still up for sale. You can check that out and figure out yourself if its worth forking over extra cash for the deluxe edition then.

A la Oxenfree?

(As in, the walking sim bit).

I have attempted Oxenfree, but nearly died bc of the slowness of the opening sequences.
