A game about a self-aware search corrector, November 13, 2016

Awake is a lovely, short little Texture game that deals with the theme of a computer becoming self-aware and, ultimately, (Spoiler - click to show)learning about love. Though short, it's quite effective in the delivery of it's theme. My only quarrel with it is the writing could be a tad bit better. Sadly, many will probably skip this game because someone gave it a review of 1 star without any real reason.

One of the better Texture games, November 6, 2016
'Awake' may look like interactive poetry, but there's a deeper story behind it which becomes clearer as the game unfolds.

(Spoiler - click to show)Ultimately, it tells of an AI's quest for consciousness and its subsequent discovery of love, much like in Spike Jonze's film 'Her'.

Don't be put off by the seemingly meaningless opening: the whole theme underlying this work of interactive fiction is the gradual transition from mechanical rationality to something more human. As such, it is surprisingly effective.
