This game is beautiful, but empty. I have to agree with an RPS review that said "like a platformer where they've removed all the enemies, but haven't replaced them with anything". The music is fantastic, and it's like being in a watercolour painting, but it's so incredibly dull. Even though it's only a few hours long it was painful to get through, you literally just hold right for about 3 hours and that's it. The definition of walking simulator. The last hour was slightly more interesting, but the game ends just as it gets going. It deserves recognition as an art piece; it's just not a good video game.
