It's really good. The block moving puzzles are simple, but the way they're presented are very cool. The themes are hard hitting too. Well worth a punt.

Indie games don't sell as much on closed platforms (unless if it's from a world-renowned dev like thatgamecompany) compared to Steam or mobile, so I'm not surprised.

They saw that Gabe money ;)

From what I heard the game parts are pretty lackluster and at times downright bad. No matter the quality of the themes, it's hard to expect much out of the game. A pitty they didn't put more work into making the game itself better recieved. It's cool that they approach those themes, especially for someone like me who has personal experiences with some of the stuff that is touched on in the game, but it's a bummer more work wasn't put into the rest of the product so more people could enjoy it and it'd stand a better chance of succeeding.

Try playing it before writing it off. It's actually very good, as a game, and as a personal story.

Pretty poor game TBH, puzzles are very one way and linear to the point of going to A-B. The story wasn't even that good, sure the themes are very mature and new but themes don't make a good story, and it's important get a solid story first rather than ambitious pieces. Then there's the so-so controls, where you can never tell if your jumps can make or not, often it can be a leap of faith for no reason at all.

I thought I was going to get something decent, after I had my appetite wet from Journey and Sound Shapes, unfortunately I wasted $15 here.

    GriftGFX EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (5 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (5 Hours ago)
