Very short experience of death, November 30, 2013
by streever (America)
This is a short experience of death, repeated endlessly.

Puzzle-less and lacking exposition or plot, the game places you in a room, where you will die repeatedly. The main theme is how your character dies--each object you examine is a different death.

I think the story could use more connections and meaning layered into the deaths--and a bit of editing. I caught several typos. Currently each death seems to be at random, with no real connection to other events. There isn't a strong human element, nor is there an emotional connection to make with the character.

This game reminded me of Machine of Death, which I highly recommend. Machine of Death added a real human element to the narrative; the choices you made had real meaning, although you knew your ultimate fate, the narrative played with concepts of predestination and meaning in the face of death.

It also sounds also like PICK UP THE PHONE BOOTH AND DIE.
