A short game about an abstract journey of two characters who are both trying to cope with a shared event from the past in different ways: weave by Nadav Tenenbaum.

WOW, I'm not sure what I've seen just now, but it sure was a fascinating experience!
It's not so much a game as a work of art.
I really liked the atmosphere, the music, and especially the drawing style which reminds me a bit of Joost Swarte.
As far as the story is concerned, I think I have to go through it again to understand...
Thanks for sharing, Bart!

This isn't a game. It's an animated short film with a little bit of user interaction.

This. Is the deepest game I have ever encountered from your site. I dig the music too, its ever-gaining suspense. Thank you so much.

31MB and only available for Windows? The sound you hear is me moving on to something else.

Bart said...

@Anonymous It's a Flash browser game, perhaps you weren't waiting long enough for it to load.

Bart, if you ever find any thing else like this, you definitely need to post it. This changed my life somehow.

This is a gem, a fine piece of modern art. I'm not even sure if I like it, but I am impressed nonetheless. Thank you for sharing this with us, Bart!

My apologies, Bart. All I saw the first time through was a button labeled "Download Now", which took me to a web page offering me the 31MB Windows version. I think my adblocker was the problem - I whitelisted the Weave site and tried again and was able to view the "game".

Not sure how much effect any clicks I made during the game had on the actual outcome, and I'm still not clear what actually happened, but it was visually interesting nonetheless.

This piece of art made me feel uncomfortable, but it was great. Thanks for posting such eclectic stuff, Bart! It's fun to explore!

Agree with PK's comment: This isn't a game. It's an animated short film with a little bit of user interaction.

Was interesting, though.

I have no idea what I did, I was doing the Old McDonald song, click, click here, click, click there, color changing....I got out, don't know how. It was fun.

Wish it was a bit longer; I don't completely understand what happened. I somewhat wish this was a start to a series.

Tom said...

This was interesting, but as has been noted, it's not really a game. It's more of a video that occasionally requires some clicking to proceed. Artistically interesting, but no real challenges involved.

She was able to turn back time which none of us can but sometimes hope to do. They found each other though. What tangled webs we weave....

Silly. Not deep, just confused and aimless.

What the hell was that?

I liked the music.
Game not so much cause its not much game.
Now I'm okay with a game not really being a game if it has a good story.
But the story is just, well what even is the story?
Two lost souls one signing away his will to the devil and the other turning back time so they can be together again?
Just let me listen to the music.
