"A story-driven experience about two doctors traversing backwards through a dying man's memories, in order to artificially fulfill his last wish."
♥ I have finished this game ♥
This is a beautiful and well thought out game. It's no easy feat to create a story that progresses backwards in time so that you can fully appreciate the present. The game is short, which may be a perk for some and not others. I feel the length of this game was perfect. There are many references in this game, and it's fun to find them! The sound track is beautiful and really helps influence your emotions.
This game is emotion and story driven. As for gameplay mechanics, you basically walk around (using your mouse), collecting memories so that you can progress to the next period in time. You watch this dying man's life unfold from the present until he was a young child. This is a heavy dialog game, and you have to click to go through the dialog. So walking, collecting, and dialog. Each time you progress to the next point in time, you have to solve a little puzzle. The puzzles aren't that difficult, and I found it kind of fun.
You grow to really care about the characters. You sympathise with them.
If you do not shed even one little tear at the end, you might want to have yourself tested. You may in fact not be human.
