A very interesting game. I also like this "take" on low poly style of graphics with the character. The feeling of flipping through the magazine and slowly understanding was very nice and the more I think about it the more I feel it is indeed true to our life. Thanks for creating this!


Very peaceful.

Not so much a game but more of a short simulation.  Unique.
