Some people will tell you that Thirty Flights of Loving is a scam, a 15 minute game that should be free, but costs 5 bucks.
Ignore those people.
I'm sure you've spent five buck on things you don't even remember anymore. ♥♥♥♥♥♥ sandwiches and overpriced cups of coffee.
You'll remember Thirty Flights of Loving. You'll remember it for a long time, and that alone makes it worth a lot more than five bucks.
But enough about the price, let's talk about the game itself. TFoL has more narrative depth in 15 minutes than your average 20 hour game could ever hope to achieve. It's thrilling, it's funny, it's weird, it's sexy and it has a bunch of oranges in it. Also, the music is crazy good.
In a better world, TFoL would be well-loved by everyone who plays games, and would be considered a revolutionary experience. It does things with film language that any triple A game that has "cinematic experience" written on the box couldn't ever hope replicate. Unfortunately, all people talk about is how short it is.
To that I say: Peter Dinklage is also short, and he's ten times better than you or me. Do you think you're better than Peter Dinklage? Do you think you're better than Thirty Flights of Loving?
