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.

What the ♥♥♥♥ did I just play? Seems like some tragic, espionage, psychedelic, love story. Strangely enough, I still enjoyed it

While the game IS fun, and the art style is one that I enjoyed, for the price it is not worth it. It costs about half the price of a movie ticket, and you can beat it in less that 20 minutes. I in-depth played it (Stopping to read all the cards, payed extra attention to the environments, and tried to explore best I could, etc.) AND played through a second time on commentary mode, only to find myself clocked in at a little less than an hour. I wish the game were a lot longer and offered a lot more. It's a great story, but for 5 dollars you should just watch it on youtube.

Let me start off by saying this is much less a game than it is an art piece.

Thirty Flights of Loving takes you on a short and wonderfully confusing journey through dramatic and intense sequences. It took me about 10 minutes to beat, but the developer commentary gave me insight into the process of developing the game.

It feels very personal, and when it ends it leaves you wanting more, but having more would potentially spoil the experience.

If you're looking for a short artsy game with a story that you have to work for, then consider checking this out. If you have it in your Steam library and haven't played it yet, give it the 10 minutes of your time it asks for.

Eh, I liked it. I wish there were more flights to love and more birds to photograph. It didn't take long to finish, and it gets pretty weird.
But I thought it was time well spent.

An intensely surreal time, difficult to recommend at any kind of price-range given how abbreviated the experience is but still manages to be an interesting take on the "games as art" bandwagon. Can't be recommended as a purchase but worth watching a youtube playthrough of.

Thirty Flights of Loving 9 / 10
Oct 23, 2013

A five minute Quentin Tarantino game/movie;
An interactive movie trailer between Pumpkin and Honey Bunny;

Yeah no sh*t - this lasts only five minutes; so I played it ten times for a total of 50 minutes hoping to get some Steam Cards.... (warning - did not work : p)

Do you make games? You figure out how to fit something like this into your game as an Interlude and Bingo you have a Hit within a Hit; hilarious and intense potential.

Check this out....

I really enjoyed the experience of playing Thirty Flights of Loving, but know what you are getting in to. It's a really interesting narrative, but I almost think it would have been better suited as a short film than an interactive experience as it's completely linear and you aren't really adding anything by being in control of the character because there are very few things to interact with.

But that being said, the presentation is great. The art direction is compelling, Chris Remo provides another great soundtrack, and the scene right after the open credits got to me more than any AAA game I can think of. I wish it was a little bit longer (about 15 minutes) and include a bit more interaction, but it's still an absolutely worthwhile experience. Although if I'm being honest, when I wanted to play it again a few months later, I ended up just watching a YouTube playthrough because it's almost the exact same thing and I didn't have to fire up Steam.

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.

A true expression of what video games can be as art instead of entertainment. Bite sized, but well-crafted.

Brilliant, as long as you know what you're getting...

First and foremost this is more a short interactive story than a game, there's not a lot of player input. The game mainly consists of moving from one scene to the next with story unfolding through jumpcuts. Now if "short interactive story" hasn't put you off already than buy this game, granted for 5 euro it may seem steep, you'll get through it in about 15 minutes the first time.

As a story this is incredibly well put together, you'll play through it the first time and kind of know what's going on, and then you'll probably end up playing through it maybe 2 to 3 times more as you try to figure out the sequence of events. Plus the games wacky art style and music are more than worth the price of admission. I'm honestly a huge fan of this game.

On a side it comes with the prequel "Gravity Bone" which is also awesome and features the same type of style, so there's two reasons to buy it. However you can download "Gravity Bone" from the net for free and "test run" how you feel about this type of game if you're nervous about spending the 5 euro. But honestly I'd recommend buying this.

Yeah it's short, but it plays with its narrative structure in ways simply not found in other games. It's definitely original and it looks and sounds great. A surprising, stunning, worthwhile experience.

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?

More-so episodic art than anything else, with vidyah games as the medium.

I really dug both this and Gravity Bone. It plays like being in an art-house Tarentino style crime caper. It's a nice break from the cookie cutter style gameplay found in the majority of modern games.

Playful, artsy, stylized, beautiful music, and generally all around good throw-back style puzzles.
