Replayed with my girlfriend, still the best game of all time. Nothing compares

The more I think about this game, the more I love it and realize how unique it is.
Such an amazing feeling exploring this solar system, contemplating the infinite dark space with the beautiful score playing. So satisfying to unravel the mysteries and to understand what you need to do, especially when you need to be a little bold. There's a big sense of cohesion in this whole game.
The ending is really powerful and you can really feel that you're witnessing something big.
It's not my personnal favorite game of all time, yet I feel like it might the best game ever made, if that makes sense.
As for Echoes of the Eye, while it didn't feel that connected to the rest of the game, and I thought it was way harder both in its puzzles and just mechanically ; I still really enjoyed it, adds an interesting scenario, and the art direction is just fantastic.

the most engaging puzzles/riddles ive ever seen in a game. solutions are very clever but not unfair. exploring the planets and their ruins and stumbling on all kinds of crazy shit is a great time, and unraveling the mystery one step at a time so you can piece together the bigger picture is incredibly satisfying. the environment design is also amazing and the concepts in the later portions of the game are so cool and interesting, cant elaborate because of spoilers. the dlc is just okay though ngl, exploring the setting was cool but it felt like a lot of running around doing busy work for very little reward

Lo intente en 3 oportunidades y nunca me logró engancharme, está bueno pero medio pelo, para mí

Fantastic game from start to finish. The curiosity and confusion in the beginning before you experience and realize the loop for the first time is a breath of fresh air. Not much direction, just some input from NPCs about a space mission and before you know it you are uncovering secrets of a fallen race and the death of the universe. The experience is underlined with a fantastic score and the design of the puzzles is great. It's a bit tiresome when you get stuck and feel like you're just too dense to progress, but when things fall in place and DO make sense it's fantastic. When you finally piece everything together, know exactly what you need to do and where is an undescribeable feeling. This is very much as close as you can get to a perfect game
