Looks pretty but...dang, it could be anything!

My sick mind wants to imagine it is some sort of line drawing fire fighting game but I have no reason to actually believe this.

Oh, duh, even the terrain there then makes a bit more sense...but, okay then, if true to Lost but still a basic pick up and play like game what would you think they're going for here? How do you make the concept of this thing into a game?

Throw some of the rules out the window and play as the smoke monster destroying everything that dares defy him in his path, whilst maneuvering around magnetic sound wall barrier things. Play a backgammon mini-game in between levels and get rewarded with bottles of vintage wine that predate Christ. Complete the mysterious light mine quest and make your way off the island to continue your rampage on various regions of the world

So it is a Lost themed game of snake? If using music straight from Lost you might run into troubles.

The music is not from L O S T. But im glad you thought it might be. It was composed exclusively for Smoke Monster by Erick Schroder, an excellent composer I work with. Thanks for the Advice though.

Power to you then! Just copying the same dramatic style of music can't get you into any trouble and it sounds awesome.

It sounded TOO DAMNED GOOD to just be some music whipped up for a game!
