I love when dev's are creative like this, but I have feeling what was shown in the video is all there is to see.

Interesting concept, if nothing else, at least the developer is thinking outside the box.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

That will of course vary from person to person. Some people throw away hundreds of thousands of dollars on absolutely nothing. For a unique experience that isn't seen elsewhere, I can see this game being purchased by some. It won't make any top list or have jaw-dropping sales, but it certainly won't go unsold.

I was interested in this title when someone linked to Opertoon's website a couple of weeks ago. I'm loving the concept, but I'm not sure about depth of this game or rather an experience. It seems it just flips between the two character's faces and that's about it. If the interaction ends there and there aren't any other ways that will tell us more about the characters or let our choices influence the outcome in a greater way - I have to say I'll be pretty disappointed as this is a great concept.

I saw this got a nomination at IGF. Does anyone have it? Give a quick review of the games depth, length, replayability. Do you learn it's tricks by using it once?
