Pretty funny and unique game. It started off really strong but after about 1.5 hours of game play it quickly grew repetitive and began to feel a little tedious.

Unique premise, pretty funny

PS. Pretty short though. Like 4 minutes to beat it :grinning:

The game deals with existentialism to the core of how you are as a person or game understand the narrative with guiding from voice narrator. Its simple fun walking simulator but it will teach you some points of perspective. It has quirky moments and also mildly interesting ... Read More
