SummaryVery short, very touching
The GoodI like the idea that a game was developed to raise money for a cause such as this and that it tried to paint little stories to make the whole event more personal was a stroke of artistic genius.
This is a very, very short game. It lasts maybe fifteen minutes at the most and there's very little action in it. The player follows a butterfly to an object, examines it, releases a butterfly that goes to another object and so-on. It doesn't sound like much but the pacing and the subdued colour palette are entirely appropriate. It's very moody and atmospheric and I found it genuinely touching.
There's no deeply solemn doom-laden music here, the music is restricted to a few chords on a piano - soft, gentle and entirely in keeping with the colour choice and the 'feel' of the whole piece.
The BadI can't think of a negative comment. If pushed I'd say there's no replay value, that's not what it was meant for.
