Just like Pony Island, it overstays its welcome quite a bit with dragged out puzzles and repetitive, not all that fun gameplay. But it's just as weird and psychedelic as Pony Island and it's an interesting experience overall with some great ideas and lots of 4th wall breaking.

so creative, so unique(?), so fun..
İ love daniel mullin's games so much mann

Clever little game. This game does a fantastic job of using game mechanics in meta and interesting ways to craft a unique and well written narrative. The Hex is able to throw so many little details throughout, and actually payoff on pretty much everything throughout. This is a game that you would notice a ton of foreshadowing on a second playthrough.

The creator of The Hex is very good at this style of game, and I’m exited for pony island 2

Really pleasant surprise, so witty and creative, always funny in its commentary of so many game tropes, so well executed, and got surprisingly invested in the story, some of the sections overstay the welcome for what they are a bit, the 2D art is a bit rough on the eyes, and the ending is a little cheap, but to be honest all those things are extremely minor on how cool this premise is and how great its executed.

It's a very strange absurd game that flows very smoothly between various absurd parodies of famous games connecting them in an absurd way with an absurd twist in the game's absurd plot.
I got through it in one go and kept asking myself the question: what the heck is going on here?
