Es una flasheada hermosa MUY pero MUY inspirada en Pink Floyd.
Lo disfruté, pero no creo que lo re juegue en el futuro.

"An entrance, whether literal or metaphysical, cannot be undone."

I might have heard enough electric guitar licking for a while. But honestly, it was a great experience. There's not much gameplay here, but there's still a fair amount of interactivity.
The art is just absolutely and undeniably stunning.
This is the most elaborate character creator of all time and to date my favorite space opera I've been a part of.
Anyway... Dialogue? Snappy. Glasses? Must have. Name? Guitar riff. Space turtles? Majestic.

Eu imagino que para algumas pessoas seja um jogo bem melhor do que foi pra mim, o gráfico é lindo, a trilha sonora é muito boa, a mensagem e as discussões talvez sejam muito boas também. Entretanto em questão de gameplay achei bem sem graça, você apenas vai andar pelo cenário, tocar guitarra com um botão e conversar com personagens sem muito carisma.
Acho que deve ter Walking Simulators melhores, mas se ainda tiver interesse joga pra tirar suas próprias conclusões.

A visually grand image that lacks any texture or bite. There's a decent message in here that I can get behind, but the unlikability of the protagonist combined with the dull moment to moment gameplay bored me.

funny how they made a game that's essentially about using drugs (and self-discovery, of course!!!) so boring and empty interactively-wise. dropped it after an hour
