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. ♥♥♥♥ty 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?

Good story, good music, good game. A little wired, but make sense. Although you only have 15 minutes on it, what the game tells you may make your money worthwhile.

I've played this for 15 minutes.... Its pretty good, or atleast powerful. That being said, I don't reccomend you buy it, atleast not for 5 bucks. For a Dollar, it would be a great value, I suggest waiting for a bundle, because even those 15 minutes are worth experiencing.... just not for 5 bucks.

Great, great game as long as you're willing to look past the fact that it's about 15 minutes long. This one has a great love story.

Notice how almost no one who has left a review, good or bad, has played this game for even 2 hours. That is because this game consists of less than 1 hour of actual gameplay, and that gameplay is really just a hollow mask for a very dull interactive story.

I would recommend viewing a lets play on youtube, totalbiscuit or something. This game, with its predecessor packed in, can be played through in 10 minutes. It makes very little sense and can be equally experienced via youtube.

Thirty Flights of Loving
Rating : 8/10

Short game that is told in scenes in a asynchronous way.

Blendo games is known for releasing games that take radical different approach to story telling and does this again in this game. It's like you watch the most important pieces of a movie shuffled around. The game has some activity where you have to walk and solve some easy puzzles (?) to advance, but other than that it is just enjoying the scenery, trying to understand and connect the story.

The game was build in a modified Doom engine using a typical style which totally fits the game mechanics. Audio and soundtrack are great and fit the game perfectly.

You can speed run this game in 5 minutes I think, but normally when you relax and enjoy the game it should take about 30 minutes. Because the story is so jumpy, it invites you to play it again just to look at the parts again.

In the end the game reminds you that a game doesn't have to be long to be good and that a story can also be told by leaving out all the unnecessary parts.
