I don't like this game... The ambiance and the music are nice, but... It's so boring!

Loin said...

SO sad. I enjoyed this game.

Megan said...

Beautiful, but so sad!

Cyn said...

Cute game, yes, it's a little slow, but sometimes that's a good thing. like today... was in no mood for a fast-paced game. Nice and relaxing!

Anonymous said...

Way too slow...it would take an hour(s) plus to finish that...not wasting anymore time on it!

jam said...

it takes much less than an hour to finish and it's very nice.
i thought there might be a twist somewhere, bit disappointed there wasn't.
but i enjoyed it's moral about the folly of trying to please women.

Now I'm very sad........
I like the game but it's definitely not a happily ever after ending.

Practicallyacowgirl said...

That was a very sad ending. He gave his life for her.....

-k said...

Interesting. My take is very different than some of the others here as to the "story" being told in the game.

Given that the yellow flower came from a grave and he was unable to "get her attention" from the very beginning, my take was that he was a ghost and he was bringing her all the good memories of their former life together. Hence the colors returning to her world and her release of the dove, a simple but apt symbol for the lifting of her mood from depression to a fond nostalgia.

@-k Well said. This was a sad but beautiful game. The guy is a ghost trying to cheer up his depressed girlfriend by bringing back color into her life.

Eviltot said...

What a beautiful little game, i loved the music too!

NotMarian said...

Aargh. I hate jumping games.

KittenMitten said...

loved it! cute game but sad at the end because he died :( took me about 20 or 30 or 10 minutes to finish.

Broszb4 said...

Good game, but i wish the ending wasn't so obvious after the flower. If they had found a way to hold on to that reveal a little longer it would have been great.

Also the slowness of the character was a little on the annoying side but not to bad.

So beautiful and sad.. I had the same view of the idea of the game as k. I only got the flower near the end which was nice.. Initially I was thinking he was cheering her up about someone else who had died until the end.. Sweet little game

Joe said...

Nice game. Nice interpretations. I like the music.

At first I saw it as he was "losing" himself by doing all that. The idea that he is a ghost to cheer her up is great.

This game is slow and it lags ALOT!

Rava said...

Saaad game! :) I'm for the ghost interpretation, by the way... the first I thought about, actually! But the other one is suitable too, I think.

it was so simple and so quick but i liked it! thanks bart!

I said...

i love -k's thinking soooo much... it was soooo sad though...

Nebula said...

The whole "flower giving it away" worked out perfectly for me, as I encountered yellow last.

All in all, it was a relaxing game with amazing music.

The Gordo said...

Nice. Relaxing. Enjoyable.

tam said...

I loved it. Very much.
Not sad.
-k rules.
I was only sad when I finally noticed the white arrow pointing towards the girl... I was enjoying myself so much by getting so terribly lost!

ooh so sad :(

Nice relaxing game. Love the interpretations too everyone. ta!

Peter said...

a real beauty with wonderfully sad music. Keep up the good work!

The atmosphere is nice, but that doesn't make up for the fact that there's no gameplay. There wasn't a single point in the game that needed skill or problem solving. Boring.

I love this game, music, and idea, but the ending....?

Anonymous said...

So sad and I loved the music plz where can I download it

Kitten said...

Everyone who called this boring has no heart. GTFO IDIOTS

sad but beautiful music..

Zuma Ezra said...

good game but the character moves too slow

Anonymous said...

i didn't really think about the story while i was playing the game but the ending just left me feeling empty and depressed as if a part of me was departing from somewhere in my chest and the music didn't help. i liked the story about the ghost cheering up his girlfriend. it made me feel better.

elbagabundo82 said...

Hello Bart, I hope you read this:

Some years ago - I have no idea, when exactly or even roughly ;), just have the feeling it was BEFORE you posted this Grey game here - I told you about a game called Gray or Grey I was then surprised not to find on your website. You told me then that it IS on your website, as far as I remember. I couldn't find it. I also couldn't find another game called Grey or Gray, respectively on it. At least I don't remember finding it there. So today, on my way through all of your posts, I suddenly find a game called Grey there. (The one this blog belongs to.) I don't know what game you had in mind when you told me it is already on your website but anyway I post a link here to the Gray Game I meant back then.

Cheers, Marie Lastname / "Playerette" (old account)

Bart said...

Ah yes Playerette, I remember :) And this Grey game of this post was the game I ment. But your link does not seem to work, getting error 522 every time, so I still don't know what Gray game you mean...

Marie Lastname said...

Hi Bart

Just deleted my answer by mistake:

Link works fine for me (copy and "paste and go" in the address bar). I found the game via google image search "gray game", fifteenth image, the little half black half white anthropomorphic guy.

If this also doesn't work AND you're interested in checking out the game I will e-mail you.

Hi again

www.flasharcade.com

Select ARCADE (where you could also select SPORTS or ACTION or PUZZLE), sort by NAME A-Z, there it is on page 27 of 67 in the fourth row.

Bart said...

@Marie Today flasharcade seems to be reachable, seems like a nice game, I'll check it out. But I hate it when a game does not support the cursor keys.

 

If you are you looking for a solution or a walkthrough for one of the game links, please have a look in the comments.
