Tragically, this labor of love has been left to languish. My 3 star rating is not because of the gameplay (it's neat!), or the story (it's good!), or the music (it's great!). It's for the fact that the game is seemingly no longer being updated for newer versions of Android. I'm lucky enough to be able to launch the game, but changing focus to anything else hard freezes it and makes the current session unrecoverable. Buy the game on Steam instead, or stream the album on Spotify and enjoy yourself

I enjoyed the game, but the battle system (rotating your phone and then waiting for the enemy to attack you so you can counterattack them) got old pretty fast and ended up being more of a tedious pain than an intense fighting experience--the boss fights were kind of fun, though. The game is way too sensitive to even slight rotations; also, the main antagonist wasn't nearly as frightening once you realize that all it does is trigger another boring fight when it catches you. Story was alright--it started off strong, but last momentum as the game progressed; in some ways this game squandered its potential.

This game had excellent reviews when it came out. So I had high expectations. But it turned out to be just okay. Graphics, sound and music are great. Graphics are not technically great, but artistically nice. The Android port seems to have a bunch of bugs, though. Screen taps were not registering properly on a new Galaxy S20+. Game would crash when coming back after multitasking. Game itself is a lot like Myst. Unclear where to go and what to do, and hints are often insufficient. Probably best to play with a guide to avoid frustration. I had tried the iPad version previously and it was not buggy like this one. Recommend ios for that reason. All in all still a decent game, but the bar for mobile games has been raised a lot since this game first came out.
