I love this game but the guy moves so slow. Why, when he's spinning at the end, does he turn into the girl from the beginning of the game? I didn't understand that.

Great music.
Is it about a man who finds out that he really wants to be a woman? That must be a lonely experience.

I think that the guy in this game is a cross-dresser. That's what I got out of it anyway.

I didn't understand it, but it was beautiful all the same. And I don't think that the guy is a cross-dresser.

The game doesn't work for me; all I see is a black screen.

Game play is way to slow for my taste.

I really liked this game. Exploring the vastness of space as a metaphor for searching within and finding yourself after being so lost is fantastic. Thanks for sharing this one with us, Bart!

I don't like this. I've played lots of art-games but this just doesn't do it. It is trying so hard to be an art game, but there is little to the story and the gameplay bring out even less. I felt like it tried way too hard to be deep, but ended up stranded on the shallow surface of the moon.

hes confused thats why the screen blures ..going to the moon= getting away from people finding then is to soul shearch and he relizes hes a girl and goes back...

FancyHat said...

All the metaphors left me confused.
I think I get where it's going but... Hey you know, I really enjoyed the music :)

well i agree with everyone else he moved to slowly. my sound didn't work so i didn't hear all this "beautiful" music people are talking about. it didn't hold an interest for me, i thought the end was dumb (i'm very conservative just to let everyone know) i know it's just an "expierement" but i give it my official thumbs down. thanks for posting, bart.

the man is a woman he was look in a mirror in the beginning(mirror shard)

For those who did not notice, the game talks about dysphoria, a mental disorder, mixing depression and schizophrenia.

It looked to me she had once lost control toward her dark side, the boy. This once "went far of people", and "destroyed" his world. But she managed to gain her mental struggle, though autotherapy, "personal trip to the moon".
